Apple Pie Lactation Smoothie
The humble apple, it turns out, is actually a powerful galactagogue that increases your serum prolactin levels, and therefore, your milk supply. This vegan smoothie also harnesses the power of almonds, flax and brewer’s yeast, and warming spices such as ginger and cinnamon, which are used in China and India to help women recover from birth and produce more milk.
