Five Alkaline Drinks For The Alkaline Diet
June 29th, 2010 by samfrea

Vegetable juices and smoothies can be a critical part of the acid alkaline diet. These alkaline diet drinks are utterly delicious, readily assimilated, and full of the nutrients your body requires for complete health. These alkaline diet recipes are strongly packed with vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients, and the best part is that they taste delicious.

Vegetable juice is a great way to build the blood and cleanse the body. To achieve the best results, use a juicer, although if one is not available, a blender can be used instead. Celery provides a mild-tasting juice that be used to dilute strong-flavored vegetables, like collard greens and kale. Although I usually recommend avoiding fruit juices because they are relatively high in sugar, it is okay to add some apples to give the vegetable juice a sweeter taste.

The recipes for the following fruit smoothies are truly tasty. When you make the smoothie, make one portion at a time. If you make more than you can use up in a day, this will result in a crucial loss of 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. Mix until it reaches a smooth consistency. Servings: 2.

Ginger-Plum Smoothie

Combine until smooth two each of plums and oranges, a chunk of ginger roughly two inches thick, one half of a pineapple, a kiwi, and four cups of ice cubes. Mix until smooth, then enjoy. This recipe is also good for two large smoothies.

Blueberry-Mango Smoothie

Start with 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 it becomes smooth. This smoothie is so tasty that it is hard to just drink one glass.

Green Smoothie

The green smoothie is a super-alkalizing secret to the alkaline diet. It tastes great and will provide you more wholesome energy than the cup of coffee you probably drink. In a blender, blend one cup of blueberries, two bananas, two big handfuls of spinach or kale, one handful of seaweed or kelp, three tablespoons of wheat grass juice, one cup of pure spring water, and ice cubes. Combine until altogether mixed and smooth, adding additional ice cubes if necessary. Drink one glass each morning to get a healthy beginning to the day.

These are only five of the tasty alkaline recipes that are available for utilizing the benefits of the alkaline diet. Use a number of fruits and green leafy vegetables to create your own favorite drink. Don't use already made juices for the fruit juice, as they are not as beneficial as whole fruit.
