Best jungle juice recipe to boost your breast milk supply when breastfeeding

What is Jungle Juice? It’s a galactagogue (that’s something that helps boost milk supply if you’re breastfeeding) that’s super tasty, too! Alongside regular breastfeeding and/or expressing, drinking Jungle Juice can help improve breast milk supply – it’s also very hydrating and can give breastfeeding moms an energy boost. Win-win! Here’s how to make Jungle Juice.

Jungle Juice ingredients:

1.5 litres water (500ml chilled water + 1 litre that you’ll need to boil)
2-3 rooibos tea bags
500ml apple, litchi or berry juice
1 sachet Rehidrat
30ml Schlehen Blackthorn Berry Elixir
10-15 drops Rescue Remedy

How to make the Jungle Juice:

  1. Boil 1 litre of water then pour into a 2+ litre jug with the rooibos tea bags. Leave to brew and once it has cooled, remove the teabags.

  3. Mix in the Schlehen Berry Elixir, Rehidrat and Rescue Remedy.
  4. Keep in the fridge and consume the 2 litres over the course of 24 hours.
  5. You can garnish with fruit slices and mint if you’d like (this Jungle Juice is kind of like a cocktail that’s GOOD for you!).
