Maybe it’s the many broken nights, maybe it’s the nasty cold I am battling, Hattie teething or just a growth spurt, either way I felt like my milk supply was not meeting Harriet’s demands lately. Obviously there are plenty of so-called ‘lactation cookies’ recipes out there to boost your milk production but as a busy mum I needed something a little quicker. With the help of George Foreman I whipped up this easy peasy breastfeeding booster in just a few minutes.
The limited edition Mix & Go Fitness Friend Pack (RRP $49.95) is a perfect present for health conscious mamas this Mother’s Day and, the even better, it doesn’t cost a fortune. This super value pack contains the Mix & Go blending system with 2 drinking bottles (600ml, 1 transparent/1 purple), 2 flip lids and 2 purple Chill Sticks to keep your drinks cool for longer. Fruit, vegetables, milk, ice, juice, yoghurt, spices… the Mix & Go instantly turns your favourite foods into a healthy smoothie that you can take with you as you run out the door in the morning.
To give your smoothies some extra power the pack also includes the handy Mix & Go Health Mill (120ml), a clever Mix & Go add-on that crushes and grinds nuts, spices and herbs. Add them to your smoothies to make them even healthier or create nut butters, spice blends, dressings or pestos from scratch (a keep-fresh lid is included for easy storage). I love how the compact Mix & Go system hardly takes up any space on your kitchen bench yet it is so versatile, the options are endless.
Want to make your own quick, health and totally yummy Mama Milk Smoothie? Here’s how to do it:
- 1 cup almond milk

Without any effort the Mix & Go will blend all those nutritious ingredients to perfection, now that’s an easy homemade smoothie! Attach a Chill Stick to the drinking lid for some extra cool, close the bottle and your grab-and-go Breastfeeding Booster is ready. This makes quite a large smoothie that’s nice and creamy and of course very delicious, enjoy.
