If you’ve read Tristan’s story and our last update in my latest life lately post, you know that Tristan is growing quickly. Keeping up with milk production is intense and this mama has got to keep up somehow. I’ve been doing research on foods that can increase milk production and decided to concoct the perfect strawberry oatmeal lactation smoothie.
And to be honest, this was the perfect time to break in my new Nutri Ninja Blender Duo. I’ve been dying to put this baby to the test since the day I got it. The Nutri Ninja® Nutri Bowl™ Duo™ was the perfect kitchen gadget I needed to make the perfect strawberry oatmeal lactation smoothie.
Making this smoothie was super easy with the Nutri Ninja® Nutri Bowl™ Duo™. All I did was literally toss all of the ingredients into the cup, press the smoothie button, and blended everything together using the Pro Extractor Blade. I don’t like my smoothies to have chunks so I chose to use the Auto-iQ Boost feature which blends for a longer time using a unique pausing and pulsing patterns.
Once my smoothie was done, I simply removed the cup from the base and switched the blade for the spout lid and was on the go.
- 1 cup strawberries
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 2 tsp sugar (add as much or as little as you'd like - could also use a sweetener)
- 1 cup almond milk
- 5-6 oz strawberry yogurt
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- Place all ingredients in a blender.
- Blend using the smoothie function. (Turn the AutoiQ boost function off for a thicker smoothie. This will blend your smoothie for 30 seconds rather than 60.)
