Lemon + Coconut: The Deeply Nourishing Smoothie Recipe For New Moms

We’re sharing an incredible list of advice for postpartum moms today from holistic pro, Shannon Vaughn of Pursoma. Here is her recipe for a hydrating, high-fiber green smoothie perfect for new moms!

Two of the most common postpartum symptoms are the digestive system being stopped up and fluid retention in your lower limbs. To help with this, you need fluid and fiber to get things moving. You need rest, and then as things progress, you need nourishment and things to supplement what is lost as your body returns to pre-pregnancy hormone levels. I ate very light and healthy. Your body is recovering and you’re also laying around a lot so there is no need to eat heavy meals. I was breastfeeding, which in the early days are very light feedings, so eating a lot of watery foods and smoothies can help give you energy and hydrate you.
