Sip on Seasonal Spring Smoothies

Sip on Seasonal Spring Smoothies

Spring is in the air, and that means that plenty of fresh produce is hitting the supermarket shelves. For nursing mamas, it's crucial to eat a varied and nutritious diet that provides plenty of energy and supports your body. Smoothies are an excellent way to combine multiple superfoods into one snack, plus they're simple to make and delicious.

Here are three springtime seasonal recipes to help all of you hard working mamas sip the rainbow!

Sweet Green

Avocados are the perfect creamy base for an indulgent and nutritious smoothie. Packed full of omega 3 and omega 6 healthy fats and an excellent source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, avocados are ripe for the picking in spring and in plentiful supply. 

Plus, did you know that avocados contain more potassium than bananas? Potassium is a crucial mineral for nursing mothers, as it helps to maintain fluid and electrolyte balance while keeping your blood pressure stable.  

This refreshing and creamy smoothie is satisfying and full of green seasonal goodness! 

Ingredients
1/2 perfectly ripe, large avocado
2 kiwis - peeled
2 tsp lime juice
1/2 cup of coconut milk
1 scoop of Vanilla Milk Drunk protein powder
1 tablespoon of local honey to taste

 

Berrylicious Baby

Berries are arguably the superheroes of the fruit world. Packed full of fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin K, this berry smoothie is perfect for moms who need a delicious, nutritious boost.

Blueberries and strawberries are exceptionally high in antioxidants, which may help to reduce the risk of conditions such as heart disease and diabetes. Blueberries provide powerful support for the immune system, helping to defend nursing moms from oxidative stress and viral infections.

Ingredients
1/2 cup almond milk
1/2 cup natural yogurt 
1/2 cup strawberries 
1 cup blueberries, frozen
1 scoop of Strawberry Milk Drunk protein powder

 

Mango Mama

Something about the scent of deliciously ripe mango can turn even the rainiest day into a tropical vacation. Honey mangoes are smaller than their other mango counterparts; however they're also sweeter and creamier — and in season from mid-February until mid-July. Mangoes are also high in vitamin K, fiber and potassium, to help nursing mama's replenish and nourish their body. 

This delicious smoothie also contains pineapple, which is an excellent source of vitamin B2 and folate. Vitamin B2 plays a vital role in keeping up your energy supply, while folate plays an essential role in the repair of DNA. 

Ingredients
1 cup almond milk 
1/2 cup of orange juice
1 medium ripe mango (2 cups), peeled
1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks
1 scoop of Vanilla Milk Drunk protein powder
