Silverbeet (or Swiss Chard) is one of the top leafy greens for nutrient density, easily topping kale, and is incredibly easy to grow and mild tasting in smoothies. This delicious recipe IS full of lactogenic ingredients (galactagogues) i.e those that help increase breastmilk, namely the banana, greens, almond mi.k, hemp/avocado and fennel. If you are not lactacting it won't make you lacate! If you are nursing and your milk supply is fine, perhaps omit the fennel as it is quite a stong galactagogue. Recipe makes 500ml / 2 cups and contains:
Silverbeet (a couple of large leaves pulled off the stems)
1 cup of frozen pineapple pieces
2 Tbs of hemp seeds (or try 1/4 of an avocado)
half a vanilla bean
3/4 cup of almond milk
1 tsp of ground fennel
