Gingerbread cookies are amazing, but all the sugar, fat, carbs and lack of nutrients aren’t amazing for encouraging milk supply. A gingerbread lactation shake is a great option to help curb those cravings for gingerbread cookies, while also nourishing your body and keeping you on-track for increasing milk supply.
Why is Milk Dust so GREEN?
Milk Dust offers super foods such as chlorella and spirulina which are very rich in phytonutrients. These make a bright green color. There are also blueberries and spinach, making the color sometimes more of a deep grey/green. Green is a GOOD color. It means nutrients, so we are okay with the green color. We find it gives Milk Dust character.

This lactation smoothie is full of nutrients, not calories:
Many lactation smoothies out there are very high in calories, which if milk supply is your goal, then great. But many mamas are working really hard to lose the extra baby weight, and their goals can quickly be put aside for fear of losing their milk supply. Not with our Milk Dust lactation protein powder and this smoothie recipe. Because spinach is the bulk of your smoothie, you are basically eating very few calories, but completely nourishing your body.
By eating lots of nutrients, your body can safely use stored fat as energy:
If your body is deprived of essential nutrients, especially while breastfeeding, it will want to store as many nutrients as possible. If your body has plenty of essential vitamins and minerals for breastfeeding, it will happily let go of the stored energy and nutrients during pregnancy.
