Five Delicious Postpartum Smoothie Recipes

After giving birth, it’s essential to replenish your body with nutrients. But eating postpartum can feel tricky. Finding time to make healthy, nutritious food while caring for an infant is difficult, and when your hands are occupied with a baby, picking up a fork and knife (or a sandwich!) isn't always possible. (Tip: The Solly Wrap can help free up your hands!) Still, you needn't be resigned to protein bars and chips. Enter: the smoothie.

Packed with energizing ingredients to support recovery from birth, smoothies are a quick and healthy way to fuel your body while you navigate the fourth trimester. Plus, they can even be prepped before you give birth! Just place single servings in bags and keep them inside the freezer for an easy blend-and-go option. Here are five of our favorite smoothie recipes for new and breastfeeding moms.
