Alkalising Smoothies

by Vashte on June 22, 2012

These days I am moving away from the protein based smoothies and heading towards more alkaline, whole food based drinks. I use a Vitamix, and would be lost without this machine. I highly recommend investing in one. This machine will blend, chop, and gently heat your food so that the enzymes are not destroyed, and you essentially have a raw food product at the end. You are limited only by your imagination as to what you would like to blend up.

The great thing about these machines is that you use the entire food, not just the juice. The fibre content stays intact, and allows the body to pass number ones and twos easily and effortlessly. Yay 😉

I love my greens- spinach is my all time favourite. Whilst it doesn’t look the prettiest, I do love the flavour – add lemon to it and salt and pepper, or whatever herbs and spices you prefer – but anything goes.

So here are some recipes from the Vitamix booklet I love, I am sure you will too! The greens are an amazing way to kick off your day – clean light and refreshing. A great way to continue to flush out unwanted baggage :) And fill you with incredible energy for the rest of the day!
