Alkaline Green Smoothie

  • Yield servings

Adding an alkaline green smoothie to your daily routine is a fantastic way to further alkalize and an easy way for your body to assimilate the nutrients and the fiber as the blender breaks it down making it easier on your digestive track to absorb.

Kale-Apple Smoothie

Ingredients

6 inch -- cucumber
3 medium kale leaves, torn
5 pieces fresh mint
3 pieces fresh parsley
1 inch piece fresh ginger
1 -- avocado
1 cup coconut water
-- fresh juice of one lime
1-2 teaspoon udo's oil
1-2 tablespoon hemp seeds
2-3 drops stevia or a tsp of agave

Instructions

Place all ingredients into high speed blender and mix until smooth, adding a little filtered water if needed for consistency.  Enjoy!
Optionally, I sometimes add 1/2 cup frozen berries–blueberries, raspberries or strawberries as they are low sugar fruit that is healthier to add than the super sweet fruits.  However, you may find that you like the smoothie as is above.  The lime, the ginger and the mint are really nice together.  I have discovered that the coconut water is quite hydrating and I like the flavour it brings to the smoothie but it does contain a little natural sugar.  You might like to use almond milk in place if you want to avoid the sugar all together as it will still taste nice.  If I can actually find a young coconut in the market to open up so I can extract the juice and the meat, it’s a good day!  I love how fresh it is and the meat makes the smoothie just divine.  The bottled coconut water is okay but because it has been pasteurized the nutrient levels are considerably less, but still beneficial.  Just be sure to buy the unsweetened, unflavoured version.
