PB&J Smoothie

With frozen wild blueberries and peanut butter, this crave-worthy smoothie evokes the sweet and nutty flavors of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.  Flax seeds, thought to boost milk production, provide fiber, antioxidants, and omega-3 fatty acids. For a dairy-free (but lower-protein) version, use unsweetened almond milk.

This PB&J Lactation Smoothie is so tasty everyone will want a sip!

When soaked, nutritious chia seeds swell creating a gelatin-like texture which adds a creamy body to the smoothie. But, if you're in a rush feel free to skip that step.
