My Alkaline Diet

Posts Tagged ‘alkaline diet recipes

Vegetable juices and smoothies are two of my favorite kinds of alkaline diet recipes. These beverages are absolutely delicious, easily digested, and contain the ingredients your body needs for nourishment. The alkaline diet recipes below are extremely rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients, all in something that tastes great.

Vegetable juice is an excellent resource for building the blood and cleansing the body. For best results, use a juicer, although if one is not available, a blender can be used instead. Celery yields a mild-tasting juice that can help dilute strong-tasting vegetables, like dandelion greens and kale. Although I generally recommend avoiding fruit juices because they are relatively high in sugar, it’s fine to add a few apples to sweeten the vegetable juice.

The alkaline diet recipes for the following fruit smoothies are absolutely fantastic. When making the smoothie, make enough for only one use at a time. Making more than you can consume in a day will cause you to lose a large majority of their nutritional benefits. For added variety, adding a little ginger to any of the following recipes will do wonders for increasing the circulation.

Apple-Pineapple Smoothie

In a blender, mix four cups of apples, a half of a pineapple, one mango, two each of plums and bananas, and four cups of ice cubes. Blend until it reaches a smooth consistency. This recipe is enough for two large smoothies.

Ginger-Plum Smoothie

Blend until smooth two each of plums and oranges, a piece of ginger about two inches thick, one half of a pineapple, a kiwi, and four cups of ice cubes. Blend until smooth and enjoy. This recipe will also make two large smoothies.

Blueberry-Mango Smoothie

Use three apples, two each of bananas and plums, one cup of blueberries, and one each of peach, lemon, and mango. Blend with four cups of ice cubes until desired smoothness. This smoothie is so delicious it is hard to only drink one glass.

Green Smoothie

The green smoothie is one of the most powerful alkaline diet recipes. It tastes good and will give you more healthy energy than the pot of coffee you normally drink. In a blender, mix one cup of blueberries, two bananas, two hefty handfuls of spinach or kale, one handful of seaweed or kelp, three tablespoons of wheat grass juice, one cup of fresh spring water, and ice cubes. Blend until completely mixed and smooth, adding additional ice cubes if needed. Drink one glass each morning to get a healthy start to the day.

These are only four of the delicious alkaline diet recipes that are available for utilizing the benefits of the alkaline diet. Use a variety of fruits and green leafy vegetables to find your own favorite drink. Do not use already made juices for the fruit juice, as they are not as beneficial as blending whole fruit.
