Because we at Majka not only want to provide you with the best nutritional and lactation support products on the market, we also want to give you healthy recipes that allow you to creatively incorporate our products into your everyday diet. On today’s menu, we’re giving you not one, but TWO delectable desserts featuring: chocolate lactation brownies.
Whether you go for option A or option B, you can enjoy three harmonious ingredients: chocolate, brownies, and lactation support. Because you are what you eat, before we dive into the lactation brownie recipes, here are some of the key benefits of the ingredients you’ll find in our lactation brownies that will help increase your milk supply.
Superstar Ingredients for Lactation Brownies
One medium-sized banana has around 450 milligrams of potassium, a mineral that helps balance your electrolytes, stabilizes blood pressure, and helps reduce swelling.
Majka Lactation Powder:
Majka’s Nourishing Lactation Protein Powder combines six blends of superfood ingredients that give new mothers the proper nutrition and lactation support they need post-birth. The lactation protein powder includes organic blends of greens, vegan protein, fruits, lactation support, and enzymes and probiotics.
Avocados are packed with “good fats” like omega-3, omega-6, and omega-9 fatty acids and can help you feel fuller longer. Avocados also have a good source of fiber, can help with the quality of your breast milk, and aids in your baby’s brain development.
Although they’re little, almonds pack a punch when it comes to protein and calcium. Moms wanting to increase their breast milk choose to eat almonds because it helps with breast milk production and makes the quality of their breast milk smoother and creamier.
In contrast to butter, ghee doesn’t contain hydrogenated oils or artificial additives and preservatives. Ghee aids in digestion, strengthens the immune system, heals and restores tissue (good for postpartum), and can boost milk supply.
Coconut sugar, a healthier alternative to standard sugar, provides fiber, essential amino acids, iron, choline, and antioxidants.
Majka Lactation Booster:
Majka’s Lactation Booster is a potent blend of ingredients that increases breast milk supply for breastfeeding mothers while reducing inflammation. Its organic ingredients of turmeric, shatavari, caraway, flaxseed, and milk thistle can be easily added to smoothies, lactation brownies, or sprinkled on salads.
