Alkaline Diet Recipe #146: Antioxidant Green Smoothie
This is a POWERHOUSE! Full of the MOST antioxidant-rich green, alkaline foods it is filling, alkalising, antioxidant-rich, healthy oil-rich, protein-rich and simply delicious.
Alkaline Antioxidant Green Smoothie
A handful of Kale
A handful of Spinach
2 Broccoli heads
A handful of Lettuce
1/2 clove Garlic
Juice of 1/2 Lemon
A little water to the texture you like
All you have to do is blend it all up! Start by blending the avocado, cucumber and lemon juice to form a mushy paste, then start adding the other ingredients.
You can blend in a little ice if you prefer it chilled, or add a little chilli if you like it HOT HOT HOT!
This will fill you up for hours. I like to have it after a workout or for breakfast and it keeps me going for ages.
OPTIONAL: if you find it all to veggie when you first start alkalising, you can blend in a little fruit of your choice to sweeten it up or add some capsicum (pepper) for sweetness.
When you say head of broccoli do you mean 2 florets or two huge heads?
Ha! Just saw someone asked exactly the same questions. Thanks!
Florets – apologies, I need to change this!
Quick question, the brocoli raw? And is it really 2 heads as 2 whole brocolis? Around 8inch diameter each?
I tried but it was to much brocoli it wouldnt blend in my blendtec, made me wonder if it should be cooked first.
I am following the alkaline reset diet and loving it
Raw, and 2 florets – thanks for the heads up on that!
Thank you for your valuable help.
Can I blend the evening before as in the morning with the school run is such a rush.
Hi Ross excellent information I will reccomend your site to my patients
the small things that count HOW to do it and what portions is not on most other alkalizing sites
my time is taken up showing people WHY they should alkaliize with our scanning system
and hyperbaric chamber
I am more an elemental healer and use very littl as far as supplements go I prefer food and herbs
HI ROSS THANK YOU SO SO MUCH FOR THE INFORMATION ON ALKALINE FOODS,, I HAVE BEEN SERCHING FOR THIS IN A LONG TYM,,
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GOOD WORK,, STAY HEALTHY AND BLESSED
This is the first time since downloading all the information in your website, November last year that I have contacted you.
I had been introduced to your website, by a friend.
Whilst subscribing to your way of eating, I had also just started reading Fit For Life, by Harvey Diamond. So, this book, inconjunction with your valuable information has in 3 months
allowed me to go off my blood pressure medication, together with cholesterol medication as well. I feel well. Also, I have lost 6 kl as well. I was only 85 kl to start with, so the weight loss was not the main aim.
So…. my question is, “Doesn’t blending kill or reduce, or burn off the nutritional values of the veggies or fruits we put in them. I have a slow type juicer, could this be used to make the green smoothy?
All the best mate and thanks for your great recipes and invaluable information. OH & by the way, I have forwarded your emails onto about 10 of my friends.
Congratulations! Great effort!
Regarding juicing vs blending. There is some nutritional content loss with blending, but you have the benefit of the fibre remaining. It’s worth doing both – having juices AND smoothies.
