Smoothie for nursing moms

I drank about a million of these in the early days of nursing. Gave me tons of energy and I swear it helped fatten up my tiny baby! And it’s sooooo SIMPLE!

1 banana +

6 or so pitted dates +

about 1/2 can of coconut milk.

You can also substitute avocado for banana if you like (so good!). And add some ground flaxseed if you have it (that will give you omega fatty acids plus can help sluggish bowels. Just sayin.).

Use any blender. You can blend it right in the glass you serve it in with one of these stick blenders. I have the orange one.  And this is the perfect glass to fit the blender.

This smoothie is full of good fats and gives you energy to keep going. And going. Phew, those early days are hard work and breastfeeding really takes it out of you!

Hang in there.
