Making a morning sickness smoothie is a great way to ease the nausea that inevitably comes with pregnancy. Here’s one of our favorite recipes for a delicious and easy anti-nausea smoothie.
How many mamas out there suffered from morning sickness? We both had it bad in the first trimester, but luckily it subsided. However long you experience it, morning sickness is never a pleasant time for a mama-to-be.
For the mornings (or afternoons, or evenings…) when you’re feeling the worst, we want to share one of our favorite anti-nausea recipes for pregnancy.
To make this smoothie, you’ll need just a handful of ingredients:
- Lemon Juice
- Maple Syrup
- Ice + water
Ginger root has long been studied for its ability to reduce nausea during pregnancy.
Research shows that, while best dosing and duration of its use are to be determined, ginger is a safe and effective home remedy that many women use.
This recipe combines the anti-nausea power of ginger with kale and pineapple, to help settle your stomach while packing in the nutrition.
And it’s as simple as throwing everything in a high speed blender, combining until smooth, and voila!

So delicious! What are the nutrition facts?
Very tasty! It’s more like a slushie, but it’s a great way to stay hydrated.
So glad you liked it!
Helped my nausea !!! Will be my go-to from now on
So glad to hear!
Looking for something quick using the ingredients I have on-hand and fresh ginger isn’t one of them. Can I sub organic grated ginger in place of fresh?
Yes! That should work.
Seemed to help with nausea, is refreshing AND my toddler enjoyed it too so was something to share with her. Thanks!
