This Pineapple Ginger Morning Sickness Smoothie Recipe is great anytime, during pregnancy or not, but it is especially perfect for those early months when morning sickness and nausea hits and you’re feeling queasy all day just trying to keep some food and those prenatal vitamins down! Morning sickness is no joke, but hopefully this pregnancy smoothie will help!
Morning Sickness Smoothie Recipe
Everyone thought I would have terrible, terrible morning sickness because I was pregnant with twins, but I really only threw up a handful of times. Morning sickness for me was more of an all day feeling of intense queasiness and extreme fatigue that lasted a few months. I remember that I locked my jaw a lot in an attempt to not vomit.
There are so many recommendations out there about how to fight morning sickness, such as ginger candy or wrist bands that press on acupressure points. I tried the acupressure wrist bands and I can’t really say if they did or did not work, but I have taken ginger anti-nausea tablets prior to taking rough boat rides in an attempt to curb seasickness. Since those ginger tablets usually worked for me, I thought I would try putting a bit of ginger in my smoothies while I was pregnant for some nausea relief.
Here are the ingredients needed for the recipe:
- Frozen pineapple
- Frozen banana
- Fresh ginger root
- Vanilla Greek yogurt
- Coconut milk, milk, or pineapple juice
- Ground cinnamon
- Optional: ice if using fresh pineapple and banana
- Optional: ground flax seeds or chia seeds
This recipe makes a double batch, so it can be a smoothie for you and for your partner, or one for now and one for later. Simply refrigerate the extra and you have one ready for the next day as well! Plus, it’s recommended to take prenatal vitamins with food so it’s a win-win smoothie.
