It’s very difficult to be a new mom and be worried about your milk supply on top of keeping your tiny human alive. There are many ways to boost supply but one of the easiest (and tastiest) seems to be using milk boosting ingredients in these delicious vegan lactation recipes!

Something else that you may be interested in if you’re short on time for baking- this protein powder is completely plant based and proven to help you drop the baby weight while keeping you full! It’s also packed full of lactation boosting ingredients. Check it out here!

The three main ingredients that are good for lactation and boost milk supply are:

  1. Oats- they contain saponins, plant estrogens and beta-glucan which all have a positive effect on the hormones that help produce breast milk.
  2. Flaxseed- contains alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) which increases the ALA content in breastmilk.
  3. Brewer’s Yeast- contains galactagogues which have lactogenic properties.  This brewer’s yeast had been debittered which I would recommend using in your recipes! Otherwise it does have a slightly bitter taste.

I used this tea after my first daughter was born and actually had to stop drinking it because I was producing too much milk! It has fenugreek and blessed thistle herb which are helpful in boosting milk supply. Supplementing may work better than tea as they are a lot more potent.

 

Unfortunately, not all the lactation recipes are certified vegan. If you are vegan, there is an asterisk next to the recipes that will need one or two minor substitutions. 

 

Here is your giant list of vegan lactation recipes!
