BFN LACTATION SMOOTHIE (+ NON-BREASTFEEDING OPTION)

I am loving my smoothies at the moment; they are quick and easy, which is what I'm after in a meal these days. They also help me get a great nutrient and energy hit in for the day. 

I am breastfeeding our three week old little man, so the ingredients I have chosen for this smoothie are beneficial in maintaining and boosting milk supply. I really crave my greens and good raw food, however admit that lately it is proving pretty hard to find time to eat well and often. Not to mention that bad food choices can really set in when you are sleep deprived - the chocolate or pre packaged snacks seem so much easier to reach for than making a yummy salad or healthy snack. So this week was the first time I have gone back to doing some kind of food prep - just very basic, including things like veggie sticks and hummus, all of my fresh fruit chopped up & ready to go and some BFN immunity balls to help with the hunger that comes with the late night/early morning feeds.

WHAT IF I'M NOT BREASTFEEDING BUT WANT TO TRY THIS DELICIOUS SMOOTHIE?

With this BFN Lactation Smoothie, don't feel like you have to miss out if you aren't breast feeding. You can easily alter some of the ingredients to make it a great post workout or daily snack. Simply take out the brewers yeast and add a scoop of your favourite Maxine's Burn protein.
