An often overlooked breastfeeding tip? Create a mental list of easy, lactation-friendly recipes that come together fast and with minimal ingredients. Breastfeeding can make meal prep hard - easy is best when you're juggling babies, kids, chores, work and more. Enter the ever-amazing chia seed. This little magical ingredient is a boon for nursing moms. A delicious lactation-boosting breakfast with minimal ingredients and five minutes of prep or less!
Paired with Milk Drunk Protein Powder, this recipe comes together quickly. Even better? It works with any of our flavors (yay)! Simply combine ingredients the night before and pop it in the fridge... in the morning, top with fruit, granola, cacao nibs or a combination of all three. Bonus? It's tasty, filling and perfect for any time of the day.
