A Great Protein Powder for Breastfeeding Moms

We've recently started making protein smoothies in our house.  For me, it's been great for a little snack or boost instead of eating junk, since I'm so hungry all the time.  For Ophelia, it's been an amazing way to sneak some great tasting nutrients into her picky toddler body.  If it were up to her, we would live off donuts, mac and cheese, and strawberries 24/7.  We are loving this powder- it's amazing!  The protein sources are plant based, pea, cranberry, sprouted rice, and hemp.  Hemp protein is amazing for adding those omega 3 fatty acids to your milk.  It also has superfood and greens blend- stuff like kale, blueberries, broccoli- and turmeric! All so good for you! It also has digestive enzymes- essential to good gut health and absorbing all the nutrients you are putting in your body. I'd highly recommend this stuff!

Our smoothie recipe is simple- for me, it's a handful of greens, half a banana, protein powder, and almond milk.  For Ophelia, it's the same, but with enough strawberrries to turn it pink :)

We also use it in this simple protein pancakes recipe- it has been such a great breakfast for the whole fam!

2 scoops protein powder
1 large very ripe banana
⅛ tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
2 eggs

Mix it, pour them on the skillet, and flip 'em!  Just like regular pancakes.  

ALSO- just to note!  This isn't sponsored, I don't work for them, it's not a direct sales thing!  I just really like it.
