Did you know breastfeeding mamas need twice as much protein as non-pregnant, non-nursing women? This means that whenever you can sneak protein into a meal, it’s well worth it to do so! To provide a meal idea that’s delicious and very rich in protein (think 26g worth!), we created these 4 recipes that our community raves about!
Majka Chocolate Cherry Berry Smoothie
This smoothie features our Majka Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder too! We used the chocolate flavor in this recipe because it alone provides three different vegetarian protein sources.
We weren’t kidding when we said protein intake is a big deal! Our NLPP also provides essential daily vitamins and nutrients added specifically to help nourish your breastfeeding body by enriching your supply and making you feel like an energized powerhouse. I’m sure we can all agree that anything that energizes us is a must!
It’s smoothie time!
Our Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder also contains ingredients chosen for the baby. Take choline, for example, an ingredient that supports infant brain development. That, combined with probiotics, allow this powder to help boost the immune system (for mom and baby!), eliminate toxins, fight inflammation, and so much more.
Majka Chai Spice Banana Bake Oatmeal
What’s even better is when that bowl of comfort oatmeal doubles as a nourishing all-in-one lactation supplement. That’s where we come in!
This Chai-Spiced Banana Baked Oatmeal recipe is perfect for mamas craving a nice warm comfort food that has sustenance and value. This recipe provides all key nutrients, combining a blend of almond milk, rolled oats, bananas, maple syrup, pecans, and dates for a delicious meal that’s filling and satisfying.
Plus, since it includes our Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder, this is oatmeal that’s working double time to nourish and enrich your milk supply, provide enzymes, antioxidants, and probiotics, and fill your nutritional gaps. It helps with inflammation and soreness while also providing energy. Long story short, NLPP Baked Oatmeal makes you feel good!
Here’s how it's done.
Take it from fellow Majka Mamas...
We spoke to 100 women who love and use our products in their everyday lives. 90% of these mamas reported feeling more energetic when using our products regularly, and 75% noticed an increase in their milk supply by an average of 1.29oz.
That’s something to celebrate!
Majka Chocolate Avocado Pudding Recipe
Just a single serving of our Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder provides milk boosting herbs, probiotics, digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and all of the minerals you need as a breastfeeding mama. This means that when you enjoy a serving of Chocolate Avocado Pudding, you’re also providing your body with nutrients that will enrich your milk supply, strengthen your immune system, and help you feel better.
For us, that’s a win-win!
We love to create a batch of this pudding to enjoy as a late afternoon snack or post dinner dessert. With benefits this great, however, feel free to indulge whenever your heart desires. And don’t forget to top with strawberries to sneak some extra fruit into your diet and enjoy the chocolate strawberry flavors! You’ll be so glad you did.
Majka Samoa Smoothie
We included this ingredient to create a smoothie rich in vitamins and minerals that will support the quality and quantity of your milk supply and help you feel your very best. This signature all-in-one postnatal vitamin was designed with bioavailable ingredients for maximum absorption and truly gives your body that extra boost that it needs to heal. It’s made with herbs, probiotics, antioxidants, and a plethora of other nutrients to help you rock motherhood.
To top it off, a delicious Chocolate Samoa smoothie flavor sure doesn’t hurt!
This Samoa Smoothie takes less than 5 minutes to make and is the perfect mama-approved meal for sipping while you care for your little one, run around your house, or tackle anything that your day may have in store!
