Very Berry Smoothie for Breastfeeding Moms

Recipe #277166 | 2 min | 2 min prep |

This smoothie provides lots of nutrition, antioxidants, fiber, and taste without the dairy that upsets the breastfeeding baby's tummy. It's super quick and easy. For extra clean-up ease, after pouring the smoothie, add water and a drop or two of soap to the blender and blend for a moment. It gets rid of all the berry seeds that get stuck to the blender.

Serves 2

Change to: Close


  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 1 cup vanilla flavored soy milk
  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries (with blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries)
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  1. Add soy milk to blender.
  2. Add banana, berries, and honey. I freeze my over-ripe bananas. Using a frozen banana makes the smoothie a little thicker, but use what you have.
  3. Blend until smooth. Pour into glass and enjoy!
  4. Makes two small servings or one big smoothie.

I swear on this - my MIL made this for me my first two weeks and it was just wonderful. I had about three servings a day, as well as 64 oz of water. Double up the ingredients to make a large batch, store in fridge - good for up to a week or so.

Oatmeal Drink


  • 1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 1-2 teaspoon honey (depends on your taste. I normally use one tsp)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons non-dairy coffee creamer (optional- I use creamer b/c I can't take milk and love creamy stuff) or milk
  • 1 dash cinnamon (optional)
  • 1-2 cup water (very hot or boiling, it depends on whether you want the lumpier version or the more drinkable version) 


  1. Put the oatmeal, honey, creamer and cinnamon in a bowl or cup
  2. Add water.
  3. Mix well.
  4. Note: you can add in nuts, raisins and other dried fruits if you like.

May I thank God everyday for my family....
