Do Lactation Smoothies Really Work?

Lactation smoothies work really well for a number of reasons:

  • Easy to digest and absorb nutrients in blended form
  • Mix many potent nutrients and herbs together
  • Nourish mama, which promotes lactation
  • Are sweet and satisfying
  • Help with protein intake

By blending up various fruits and vegetables with a nourishing, lactation protein powder like Milk Dust, you can get a super-powered lactation shake in just a few steps. Milk Dust has everything you need for lactation, curbing sugar cravings and replenishing your body with nutrients.

Not all protein powders are created equal, so it is important to take a look and see that the ingredients are conducive to your goals with a lactation smoothie. Not many protein powders have a lactation-boosting blend. Milk Dust offers a blend of Fenugreek, Fennel, Milk Thistle and Brewer’s Yeast to encourage lactation. Without this, there won’t be the galactagogues necessary to increase your milk supply.

How are lactation smoothies weight loss friendly?

Lactation smoothies are very helpful for weight loss because they offer a high protein, high fiber, sweet, yummy and nutrient-dense meal that feels like you are drinking a milk shake. The goal is to satisfy those sugar and carb cravings with healthy fruits and veggies, along with a sweet taste.

Milk Dust in particular is the only protein powder that can help you with weight loss by fighting against those sugar cravings with you. Sugar cravings while breastfeeding come from a number of reasons.

Man of those reasons have to do with not getting enough satiating protein and fiber. By blending Milk Dust with fiber-rich fruits and veggies, your tummy will be full! Fiber expands and creates bulk, while protein offers satiation. The two together are a powerful combination to helping reduce those sugar cravings.

In addition, Milk Dust helps combat carbohydrate desires by offering Chromium, Magnesium, Cinnamon Bark and Tumeric. All of these have been shown to help balance blood sugar and ease up carbohydrate cravings in various ways. Many mamas struggle to get enough fruits, veggies, vitamins, minerals and overall nourishment because it is difficult to function with a new baby. Milk Dust provides the essential nourishment breastfeeding mamas need, which is what makes the lactation smoothies so powerful!

Gingerbread Lactation Shake

Gingerbread Lactation Shake

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.

Weight Loss Superfood Lactation Smoothie

Weight Loss Superfood Lactation Smoothie

This is a lean, green machine of a smoothie that will really help you make progress on your weight loss goals, while never affecting your milk supply. You can boost your milk supply, while also shedding pounds with this smoothie as your breakfast.

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.

If you aren’t sure what the essential nutrients are, grab this free ebook!

Milk Dust uses a unique lactation-boosting herb blend to boost milk supply:

You can count on Milk Dust to protect your milk supply because if offer essential nutrients, adequate protein and amazing galactagogues!

These have all been proven both in scientific studies and anecdotally to increase milk supply in many mothers. With this extra boost, and the sugar-craving busting minerals like chromium, you can count on Milk Dust to help you lose the weight, not your milk.
