Alkaline Green Smoothie

This alkalizing green smoothie will help stabilize your blood levels from highly acidic to beautifully alkaline. Making a conscious effort to reduce the amount of acidic foods in your diet, and replacing them with healthful, vibrant alkaline fruit and vegetables is a great way to help lose weight and start feeling your optimal best!

Our body is designed to be alkaline – our blood has a pH of 7.365, which is slightly alkaline and it will do whatever it can to regulate our pH levels. The Standard American Diet, consumed by a large portion of the population, is the main culprit causing our body to be in a constant state of acidity. Consuming highly acidic foods like processed foods, soda, junk foods, meat, eggs, and dairy, strips our bones from crucial minerals in order to buffer the acidity and do its best to keep our body in an alkaline state. This leads to things like osteoporosis and other degenerative diseases. 

In fact, major illnesses that plague the majority of the planet are caused by a high-acid diet, leading to things like heart disease, stroke, cancer, skin disorders, auto-immune conditions, allergies – the list goes on. You might feel fine now but your body will eventually grow out of it’s optimal pH balance and you will become victim of some disease or illness.

What are some of the benefits of having a properly balanced body pH?
- Helps balance & stabilize blood pH levels
- Encourages more elastic, youthful looking skin
- Deeper, more relaxed and restful sleep
- Limitless physical energy
- Improved immune system
- Less colds, flus, and headaches
- Less aches and pains
- Reduced inflammation in the body
- Improved digestion
- Reduction of candida (yeast) overgrowth
- Won't support osteoporosis
- Increased mental power
- Improved focus & altertness
- Legal natural high 

- 1 large cucumber (about 7-8 inches)
- 4 large kale leaves (or you can use collards)
- 1 bunch parsley
- 3 inch piece of ginger
- Fruit of choice: 1 small pineapple and/or 3 green apples and/or 2 grapefruit, peeled (you can add all 3 or you can add one fruit of choice. If you decide to add all three, use 1/2 small pineapple, 1 apple and 1 grapefruit)
- 1 cup young thai coconut water
- 1 lemon, juiced

You can either juice these ingredients, or you can blend them (I recommend the Omega juicer for juicing, and the Vitamix for blending). Either one you choose will help perform the same job - getting your body into a healthful alkaline state. 


  1. Hi, do you add water to the mix; and if so, how much?
