This chocolate banana lactation smoothie tastes amazing and has oats, flaxseed and brewer’s yeast to help boost your milk supply.


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 frozen banana, chopped into chunks
  • 12 medjool dates
  • 1 Tablespoon brewer’s yeast
  • 1 Tablespoon rolled oats
  • 1/2 Tablespoon peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa powder
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup frozen cauliflower rice (optional)


  1. Add all of the ingredients to the blender in the order they’re listed. Start with 1 medjool date. You can add the the second if the smoothie isn’t sweet enough.
  2. Cover and blend on high until smooth. Pour into a glass and enjoy.
  3. I topped the smoothie with an extra drizzle of peanut butter, banana slices and cacao nibs, but toppings are optional and I only recommend adding them if you plan to eat the smoothie with a spoon.


  • If you don’t have dates you can use maple syrup or honey as a sweetener. Start with 1-2 teaspoons and add more if needed.
  • The frozen cauliflower rice is optional, but I like adding it to my smoothies to make them a bit thicker and to get some veggies in.
