I came up with this blue pine smoothie recipe when we were out of bananas, the avocados weren’t ripe and we didn’t have any greek yogurt.
As a result, this recipe is not for a thick smoothie. (Feel free to add any of those thicker ingredients though!)
About the Ingredients
The main components of this smooth smoothie are pineapple and blueberry.
Pineapple is loaded with great nutrients, especially Vitamin C and manganese. It also contains bromelain which is thought to help increase chances of conception and possibly reduce inflammation, which might aid in recovery after surgery.*

Blueberries have long held a reputation for being packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Vitamin C, Vitamin K and manganese are all found in blueberries. They add a milder flavor to this smoothie that helps balance the flavor against the stronger flavor of the pineapple.
Smoothies are a great way to get a bunch of nutrients into your diet but they’re also a nice way to sneak in extra leafy greens. Spinach has a neutral enough flavor that you can add quite a bit without tasting it.
Chia seeds are a great addition to any smoothie since they add fiber and protein. For more info on chia seeds check out this article.
A Few Tips
You may prefer using fresh fruits over frozen, but that’s completely up to you. If cold smoothies are harder for you to digest, or if you’re TTC then going for a slightly chilled instead of freezing version may work better for you.
If you’re TTC then you can use the pineapple core to get that extra bromelain to support implantation after ovulation.
