Migraine Smoothie | Easy to Make and Good for You

migraine smoothie 2

I suffer from horrible migraines. Unfortunately, they are a side effect of another medication I take. It seems to be the only medication that works on my symptoms so I have to continue to take it on a weekly basis. Which means, weekly migraines. This week has been worse than usual though, since I’m on day 3 of this migraine.

I’ve had a few friends give me some recommendations to help alleviate some of the pain. Seeking a specialist is probably the best idea I’ve gotten (thanks, Michelle). Next best, is this Smoothie that is supposed to help with the migraine (Thanks, Devon). I only received a picture with a recipe on it, no actual post. I did some research though, and found a few versions of this Migraine Smoothie. I’m starting with the simplest recipe, then I’ll make some changes or additions the next time I make it.

Here’s the basic recipe I’ve been making for the last two days.

  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple
  • 1 celery stalk
  • 1/2 cucumber, peeled
  • 3-4 kale leaves, torn
  • 1/4 lemon, squeezed for juice

Blend all ingredients in blender until smoothie consistency.

I will tell you that this is not for the faint of heart. You must like all the ingredients to enjoy this smoothie. 😉 I actually like it, but my hubby won’t get anywhere near me while I’m drinking it. I did find a few recipes that included coconut water and I’m thinking of trying that with the next smoothie I make.

I’m going to continue drinking these for a few days and see if it helps the migraine or not. It’s definitely worth a try and includes ingredients that are good for me. Here’s to getting rid of this migraine.
