PEANUT BUTTER BANANA OAT SMOOTHIE
There are plenty of lactation teas and other supplements, but my preference is to eat to support lactation. This means foods like old-fashioned oatmeal, adding flaxseed to salads, and foods high in calcium such as dark leafy greens .
But this smoothie is my favorite one , it's sweet and healthy at the same time and for new moms is just the perfect to -go breakfast .
- 1 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup oatmeal
- 1 tbsp peanut butter
- 1 tbsp flax meal
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 1/2 tbsp honey (or preferred sweetener to taste)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend to desired consistency.
- Garnish with cinnamon and nutmeg.
- Freeze the banana, add crushed ice or refrigerate smoothie for 15 minutes if you want it colder.
In my opinion, the biggest secret to any smoothie is a frozen banana. It makes a smoothie creamy. And the banana taste is subtle, not overpowering, like unfrozen banana tends to be in a smoothie. The protein in the milk, peanut butter, and oats make this smoothie really filling, and the bananas add enough sweetness that you can get by without sweetener.
