These Green Superfood Smoothie Parfaits have been on rotation over here and for a good reason! They’re delicious, loaded with nutrients, and contain ingredients that are known to promote breast milk production.
Ever since having my baby 3 months ago, I’ve been doing everything I can to increase my milk supply. Some things haven’t worked and others have made a noticeable difference. Some of the foods that have helped me a lot have been oats, flax seeds, brewer’s yeast, almonds, and greens (especially kale!).
I try to consume these foods in different ways on a daily basis. Breakfast is usually a bowl of oats with flax and chia seeds or this lactation green smoothie parfait. You can also have the smoothie on its own–without the chia pudding–as a light and nourishing snack.
I prefer to use kale as the base as I’ve found it works better than other greens in increasing my supply. Feel free to experiment though and try other greens you have available. These parfaits are loaded with vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, protein, fiber, and healthy fats, which will surely be helpful and satisfying.
