Cucumber may help slice dehydration out of the picture. Consisting of 95 percent water, the highly hydrating cucumber is a is an excellent option for a fresh and natural, headache-fighting snack or to add to a juice or smoothie.

Ginger will reduce inflammation as quickly as it will take for aspirin or other pain pill to work.

      Hi Katie and WELCOME to Blender Babes! Kale makes this a healthy green juice, it’s the pineapple, cucumber, and ginger ingredients that are best to help naturally battle your migraine. You can absolutely leave out the kale! Try adding more pineapple – YUMMM!! :)

        • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

          Good question! It should be okay, and after doing a bit of research we haven’t found too many ingredients for green juices and smoothies that should be avoided other than fruits/veggies that are contaminated with bacteria – but we definitely recommend speaking with your physician before changing your diet, especially while pregnant. Note: most of our communities Blender Babies LOVE Green Juice!

          • Beth says

            Bananas and oranges are major migraine triggers for me. Seems like bananas are in most smoothie recipes! Can you recommend a good substitute fruit? Is it ok to just leave it out most times or does it play an important role in the flavor, texture, etc?
            Thanks so much! Thrilled to find this website.

            • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

              Hello Beth and WELCOME to Blender Babes, we are so glad you found us too! I really need to create a post for banana-free smoothies as many people either don’t like them or are allergic – and if eating it gives you a migraine I would stay far away as well! Yes, you can absolutely omit them from a recipe – to keep the same texture though try replacing it with mangoes or for a richer smoothie full of healthy fats, 1/4 to 1/2 avocado. Hope that helps! xo

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      That’s GREAT Carmen and WELCOME to Blender Babes!! So happy to hear your mom felt better :) Thank you for sharing your experience with us!

    I like what you guys are up also. Such smart work and reporting! Keep up the exlcelent works guys I’ve incorporated you guys to my blogroll. I think it will improve the value of my site . The part can never be well unless the whole is well. by Saul Bellow.

  2. Peggy Cashman says

    How often should these Migraine Be Gone drinks be consumed? Once or twice a day if you suffer from chronic migraines?

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      We recommend using organic produce and drinking as much as you can tolerate, at least 16oz to 32oz per “serving”. Sorry you have to suffer such a debilitating issue – we sincerely hope this juice helps you! HAPPY BLENDING! xo

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Hi Patty and WELCOME! Yes you can also do this recipe in a juice extractor and receive the same benefits, just leave out the water and the ice. :)

  3. says

    Such an amazing recipe! I felt a migraine coming on today, so I tried this (first green juice ever) and the pain has subsided. I’m going to start drinking this on the daily in the hopes I’ll never have to deal with a brutal migraine again. Thank you!!! :)

    • Blender BabesLeslie Williams says

      We are SO glad this worked for you, Candace! Definitely keep the ingredients on hand and try drinking them regularly to prevent migraines, too! How amazing would it be to live migraine-free? Good luck, WELCOME to Blender Babes and thanks for your feedback!

  4. says

    Hi Sharon and welcome! You can absolutely drink this green juice whenever you want, to use as a preventative. And if you feel a migraine coming on definitely have one then. :) HAPPY BLENDING!

  5. says

    Hi Helene – You can replace it with another fruit if you are allergic to pineapple, such as banana or mango. You may even want to add a dash of turmeric to further help reduce inflammation. :)

    • Blender BabesLeslie Williams says

      Fresh ginger’s health benefits are dramatically increased when using fresh ginger, and it is relatively easy to find in most areas. However, in a pinch, you’ll need about 1 teaspoon of ground ginger for every 1 tablespoon of fresh ginger. Hope that helps and ENJOY!

    • Blender BabesLeslie Williams says

      Hi, Erin, and WELCOME to Blender Babes!! You don’t HAVE to add the celery, but it does have some vital vitamins and nutrients that will help battle your migraines. Try it at least once with celery to see if it helps your headache; otherwise, feel free to make it without the celery!

  6. Lisa LaRocco says

    You are fantastic to have figured out this recipe. I know several people that have migraines and have heard turmeric and ginger were effective. Hydration can also be a big problem. Can’t wait to pass on the idea about the pineapple. I imagine this smoothie will help with a lot more than migraines with all the nutrients and antioxidants in it. Thanks for sharing.


  7. Rebecca Matta says

    i haven’t tried this yet just received it today from my sister. she knows how severe my migraine’s are. I’ve suffer from migraine for 35 yrs , I’ve try everything you can imagine. hope this work, will keep you posted.
    what is good for severe acid re flux, my partner suffers from this.

    thk you

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Yes please keep us posted! For acid reflux we have heard others recommend any recipe with ginger in it. :) Hope that helps!

    • Leslie Williams says

      Hi Phillip and welcome to Blender Babes! You could try this as a juice, but you’d miss out on a lot of the fiber. If you try it, please let us know how it is!!

  8. Ran says

    I am leaving to the grocery store now for these ingrediants . i suffer from migraines at least 2 to 3 times a month for 4 days at a time…. currently having one now. i have no idea what else to try… so here we go.

    praying this works.

  9. Ran says

    one more thing… how often can you drink this? can i drink it daily to prevent migraines? might be a silly question, but this will also be my first home made smoothie.


    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Sorry to hear about your migraines Ran! You can definitely make this as much as you want. I would even use it as preventative. :) Keep us posted how it works! :) HAPPY BLENDING!

  10. Roman says

    I suffer from migraines …and also was diagnosed with ms- multiple sclerosis.. I’ve had a migraine for the last 2 in half days ..went to doctors and they gave pain killers and pills for migraine

  11. Bec says

    I was just wondering if anyone else suffered from diarrhoea after drinking this recipe? It worked great on my headache but I was then up all night in the bathroom and have been having cramps for about 9 hours now. I was just wondering if this had happened to anyone else or if you had some suggestions on how I could get the benefits of the juice without the upset sore tummy after.

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Interesting Bec, we haven’t heard any feedback for this recipe. However we have heard of people experiencing detox side effects when they start drinking fiber rich green juices and smoothies. Are you a regular green juice (whole juice from a blender) or green smoothie drinker? I’m so sorry you experienced such pain and cramping! I suffer from IBS and have definitely felt your pain, but it’s usually after eating stuff I shouldn’t be… I would recommend talking to your physician and seeing what he has to say about it.
      Perhaps you can make the juice WITHOUT the fiber and see if it still has the same effect. You can staring it through a nut milk bag out of the blender, or use an actual juice extractor.

  12. Lene D. says

    Hi BlenderBabes!
    I will definitely try this!! Suffer from daily headaches and migraines.
    Can I keep it in the refrigerator and for how long?
    Thanks :-)

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Great Lene! Welcome! Yes you can keep smoothies in the fridge for up to 24 hours (before it starts getting icky texture, and loses nutrition rapidly) or you can freeze it for up to 3 months. HAPPY BLENDING!

  13. Ary Thephravong says

    I try this recipe for about 2 weeks now drinking daily but my migraine & headache didn’t go away. I never eat kale before, I was hesitated about it first but after drinking the juice for the second time, it was not bad. I enjoy drinking the juice & thanks for the recipe.

    • Katie Ransom says

      So glad you enjoy the recipe. Be careful not use the same greens (kale) everyday as it may cause a build up of toxins. Perhaps try some of the other juice recipes on the site and add turmeric. Turmeric is what will reduce the swelling and help relieve your headache.
