Green Superfood Smoothie Parfait

Print

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.

Please leave a comment below or tag me in your photos @nutriholist on Instagram or Facebook if you try this recipe and let me know if you also noticed a difference. Enjoy!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Kale is known to be the "king" of superfoods. It is very high in nutrients and very low in calories, making it one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. Kale is extremely high in vitamin C, an antioxidant that has many important roles in the body. A single cup of raw kale actually contains more vitamin C than an orange.
