This recipe for lactation banana bread, or banana bars if you prefer smaller bars for eating and packing is full of milk-boosting herbs and nutrients from Milk Dust, as well as being low-sugar, low-carb and still soft and comforting.
Because the bananas are ripe and sweet, and Milk Dust is sweet as well, you don’t need any extra granulated sugar or sweetener. Instead, we used the Truvia Honey blend that reduces the sugar content, but still tastes just like honey. We also swapped almond flour for regular flour, which dramatically reduces the blood sugar impact and carbs in the banana bread.
Standard banana bread is really good on occasion, but for a breastfeeding mama looking to stay healthy, lose some of the baby weight and keep up milk supply, this recipe is a much better option! You can eat this for breakfast, or as a snack with not guilt or sugar crashes.
Let’s get into the recipe, so you can enjoy this banana bread.
This lactation banana bread tastes just like the real thing, but is way healthier and full of milk-boosting ingredients!

What is lactation “nice” cream?
Nice cream is made from frozen bananas, which blend into a creamy consistency. You can also get a similar effect with frozen avocados. Both give a texture just like ice cream! When combined with a scoop of Milk Dust, you get added protein, added flavor and sweetness, and lots of milk-boosting ingredients all in one!
Curb that nursing-sweet tooth with ice cream for breakfast!
Yes, you can absolutely eat this for breakfast if you like. Seriously, there isn’t anything “bad” or unhealthy, and it tastes so good! Or, grab some after those super late-night feeds, when you are cravings something sweet and satisfying. This will do the trick!
Add everything to a blender or food processor. Blend until creamy by adding small amounts of milk of choice to get the desired consistency for your nice cream. You can also blend fresh, then put in a pan lined with parchment paper to eat later! The key is to allow it to de-thaw for about 30 minutes in order to scoop some creamy nice scream into your bowl!
The green color is from the super foods in Milk Dust. These include Chlorella, Spirulina and spinach. It makes a pretty, green color!
Top with toppings of choice like berries, chocolate or nuts!
