Many women swear by nursing teas and Gatorade for increasing milk supply. I thought - why not combine them? Here's how to mix nursing tea and Gatorade to make Lactorade and give yourself a milk supply boost!
Servings 4 cups
- 3 tea bags Mother's Milk Tea®
- 1 20 oz bottle Lemon Lime Gatorade®
- 2 cups water hot
- sweetener (sugar or Splenda, etc.) to taste
Steep the tea bags in the hot water for 10 minutes.
Pour the Gatorade® into a pitcher with the tea.
Chill and sweeten to taste.
I used 2 packets of Splenda to sweeten the whole pitcher. I like things pretty sweet, so I would suggest tasting it first, and then if you think it needs something, start with a teaspoon of sugar or one packet of sweetener and go from there.
The recipe makes 36 oz of liquid; ideally, you'd drink it over the course of a day.
