Sweet, refreshing rejuvenating blueberry mint pineapple Good Digestion Smoothie – a tropical protein smoothie designed to keep your digestion on track!

Blueberry Mint Pineapple Smoothie - an immunity-boosting, rejuvenating smoothie recipe, packed with vitamins and antioxidants

If you’re looking for a wildly flavorful and delicious smoothie OR a tool to get your digestion moving in the direction it should, this smoothie is for YOU!

Before we begin, do note that fruit smoothies tend to be very high in fructose. If you’re watching your blood sugar or find you don’t do well with large amounts of fruit, there are plenty of ways you can change up this smoothie to make it work for you.

Infused with big, bold tropical flavor with a cooling effect from the mint, you’re looking at a high-impact immunity-boosting smoothie that is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants. 

Lettuce begin!

Blueberry Mint Pineapple Smoothie - an immunity-boosting, rejuvenating smoothie recipe that promotes good digestion and is packed with vitamins and antioxidants

Like the majority of my smoothie recipes, I come with a purpose.

I designed this smoothie to be an aid in good digestion. Sometimes we just need some resources to keep the food moving (especially after the holidays!), and this is great for that!

Let’s break this thing down, shall we?

Pineapple (check), mint (check), blueberries (check), orange juice (check), banana (check), collagen powder (check).

These ingredients combined make for a vitamin-packed immunity-boosting smoothie that happens to be very soothing on the digestive system.  Here’s how:

Good Digestion Smoothie Ingredients:

  • Bananas: For those who aren’t intolerant, bananas can work wonders on digestion, as they contain resistant starch, which promotes digestive regularity. Bananas are full of fiber which helps move food along your GI tract and adds bulk to your stool. The starch in bananas serve as an awesome prebiotic to help feed the healthy bacteria in your gut, thereby promoting  healthy gut flora.
  • Pineapple is a powerful anti-inflammatory and contains the enzyme bromelain, which breaks down proteins, thereby assisting in digestion and proper nutrient absorption.
  • Mint soothes indigestion and also helps remove inflammation throughout the digestive tract. In addition, herbs help activate the salivary glands, which also helps release your natural digestive enzymes for efficient digestion.
  • Collagen: As an added bonus, I tossed in a scoop of marine collagen peptides, which help repair your intestinal wall in addition to being awesome for your hair, nails, skin, ligaments, bones, etc.
  • Orange Juice is a phenomenal anti-inflammatory and also helps with good circulation. While oranges aren’t necessarily touted as awesome digestive aids, they lend immune support for an overall healthy body. For a lower sugar option, replace the orange juice with unsweetened almond milk. You’ll lose out on some of the tropical flavor, but you’ll love the creaminess! 

At 24 grams of protein, this is a complete low-fat meal in a glass! Ideal for my fellow fitness junkies.

Recipe Adaptations:

If you’re intolerant to bananas, you can replace it with frozen steamed cauliflower, frozen steamed zucchini, or a scoop of almond butter to still achieve that thick creaminess.

For a thinner smoothie, go ahead and omit the banana without a substitution.

You can also add kale or spinach to this smoothie to further intensify its digestive healing properties!

One more little factoid, and then I’ll let you go.

Food in liquiform is much easier to digest than solid food, and liquids clear your digestive system 4 times faster than solid food.

So if you’re looking to get things moving, replacing a meal with a quality hand-crafted smoothie should help get you going!

Questions and Reviews

  1. Hi! This sounds really good, can’t wait to try it! Is there anything to use as a substitute for the ‘Marine Collagen Peptides’? I don’t mind using it, but looked it up, and it’s way too expensive for me!

    1. No worries, BJ! You can omit the collagen peptides and still get great benefits from the smoothie. The only replacement for marine collagen peptides would be another source of collagen – for instance, Beef Collagen, which I believe is about the same price point. 🙂 Hope this helps!

  2. i go through a phase with lots of eating, esp during vacation and its always hard to get back to regular eating habits. i am absolutely digging all the solid benefits from this smoothie. im curious about your overall experience.

  3. You are brave to do a cleanse! I have no doubt I would murder someone on the first day. Probably Brandon. Ha!

    I’ve never been a coffee drinker, or any caffeine for that matter so it’s hard for me to understand the addiction but I can see how all of that acid might mess with your digestion long term. Hopefully the cleanse helps!

    Also, this smoothie makes good digestion looks like a evening stroll in the park. So easy and so good!!

  4. I actually this for breakfast and taste really yummy thank you for sharing this , Please more recipes like this please 😀

  5. Because of the marine collagen peptides, this recipe should not be categorized as vegan. Of course, you could omit them, but does that compromise the make-up of the smoothie?

    1. Hi Lauren,

      That’s a great point. I’ve removed it from the vegan category. The smoothie will still be awesome for digestion without the collagen powder. If you’re looking to make up for the loss of protein, you can add a tablespoon of cashew butter (which I think would taste great as well)! Let me know if you have any other questions! 😀

  6. This looks great, I will try this tomorrow. This is definitely nutritious. Can I replace the Almond milk with a skim milk? Thank you for this.

  7. I seen a recipe so similar to this in my Juice and smoothie recipe book!! This sounds so delicious I cant wait to try. There,s a recipe for a Kale and Poppyseed (I know, sounds gross) BUT IS ACTUALLY AMAZING! Also 100% Vegan. Im so obsessed! But I will be trying this recipe also! I love reading your blog!

    The book I read in case anyones wondering – 85768kzxwkh8atdl3hk77dsd9u.hop.clickbank.net
