An alkaline diet is a diet that is packed with nutrient-dense foods. One of the foundations of the alkaline diet are green drinks.

A green drink is a blended beverage made from fruits and vegetables.

You can throw your produce drawer in the blender and see what happens. However, it’s often better if you embrace green drink recipes.

Here are a few Green Drinks to consider:

1. Lime Green Smoothie

* 3/4 cup coconut water
* 2 cups spinach
* 1 medium avocado, peeled and pitted
* 1/2 medium cucumber, chopped
* 2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
* 2 limes, peeled and halved
* 20 drops alcohol-free liquid stevia
* Pinch Celtic sea salt
* 1 teaspoon minced ginger
* 1 1/2 cups ice

Throw everything into your blender and blend until it’s smooth. Drink and enjoy.

2. Cucumber Spinach Green Drink

* 2 cups spinach
* 1 medium cucumber
* 1 stalk celery
* 1 teaspoon grated ginger
* 1/2 cup chopped parsley
* 2 apples, cored
* 1 tablespoon lime juice
* 1 tablespoon lemon
* 1 cup ice cubes

Throw everything into your blender and blend until it’s smooth. Drink and enjoy.

3. Green Goodness

* 1 head of celery
* 1 medium cucumber
* 2-3 large kale leaves
* 1 cup dandelion greens
* 1 lemon, peeled
* 1 tbsp. grated ginger
* 1/2 cup pea sprouts
* 1 cup parsley
* 1 cup cilantro
* 2 apples, peeled and cored

Throw everything into your blender and blend until it’s smooth. Drink and enjoy.

Each of these green drink recipes is easy to adapt to your own personal preferences. You can add herbs and juices depending on your tastes.

Some things to remember when making green drinks:

# Organic is best – Whenever possible, organic produce is best. This is particularly important for apples, berries, and lettuces.

# Wash them well – Wash all of your produce thoroughly. Make sure that your digestive system stays healthy by keeping bacteria and contaminants out.

# Blend instead of juice – You might notice that a blender was used for these recipes instead of a juicer. This is important. When you juice, all of the fiber and many of the nutrients are removed. Blending keeps all of the fiber in your beverage.

There’s tremendous benefits for blending and retaining the fiber. It is healthy for your digestive system and the prebiotics help ensure optimal health.

Finally, be aware of stevia. Some green drink recipes (like the first one above) include stevia which is a natural sweetener. If you have an allergy to ragweed or goldenrod, then you are likely also allergic to stevia because they’re from the same plant family.

Symptoms of a stevia allergy include headaches, congestion, and digestive distress. If you are allergic to stevia, consider sweetening with apples instead.

Start your day with a green drink or have one when you begin feeling low on energy. You’ll notice a difference in your energy, vitality and in your mental clarity. You’ll also lose weight and look great.
