Oatmeal Lactation Smoothie Recipe

Many mamas like to bake lactation cookies to help keep up their milk supply. 


So I figured out a way to use the same ingredients to help boost supply without the work of baking! 

I make an Oatmeal Lactation "Smoothie" every day for my breakfast.


  • For Lactation
    • 1/4 cup steel cut oats
    • 2 TB Brewer's Yeast 
    • 2 TB Ground Flax Seed (flax seed must be ground or it doesn't do anything)
  • For protein and taste
    • 1 container of Greek Yogurt with fruit
  • Liquid (and it is a galactagogue)
    • Almond milk to fill the container (you could also use regular milk or another milk substitute)
  • Put dry ingredients and yogurt in a mason jar
  • Add milk to the top (if you want to drink it) or less if you want to eat it with a spoon
  • Put lid on.
  • Shake it up (you may need to stir a little once in a while)
  • Put in fridge overnight.
  • In the morning, drink!

  • You could blend this with fruit and vegetables if you wanted to make a real smoothie
  • You could add fruit or peanut butter for a different taste
  • You can skip the yogurt.
  • You could use chocolate almond milk 
  • Pretty much you can do whatever you want so it tastes good to you.
  • I bought a bunch of little containers and measure out the dry ingredients in them once a week. So the night before I just need to dump the dry ingredients in.

Where to shop: I get pretty much everything on Amazon!
Other things I do to boost supply
  • drink coconut water (at least one serving a day, usually two)
  • I recently started Mother's Milk Tea
  • occasionally add Brewer's Yeast and Flax Seed to a smoothie or other foods
  • drink over 100 ounces of water every day
