For now, let us try to see some easy to follow recipes of alkaline drinks. Most of them use high-alkaline organic fruits as ingredients.
Carrot and lemon juice
This is one of the most common to give you a negative impression. But try it now and you will crave for it before you know.
There are only two ingredients to make this 8oz pure drink:
- 5 carrots
- 1 lemon
With cut ends, peel the carrots and the lemon. Using a juicer, extract the fruit juices. And voila! The juice is ready to drink. It is suggested that it be taken immediately for maximum nutrients. The juice loses nutrients and alkalinity if it is stored more than 30 minutes. Nothing beats it fresh, but if you want it cold, what most people do is while juicing, put the cup that catches the juice over a bigger cup that is full of ice so that it cools during the extraction.
This second is a creamy treat of greens. You may already think you know how it will taste, but you will never know how good it is until you try it.
The ingredients are:
- 1 peeled lemon
- 1 cucumber
- Broccoli stems
- Bok choy stems
- 3-4 inch stems of parsnip
- Small wedge of cabbage
- 1 stalk celery
- Few stems parsley and basil
All these ingredients go into the juicer. When you have your mixed green juice, pour it in a blender before adding the following ingredients:
- Small clove garlic
- Pinch of sea salt
- 1-2 teaspoons of natural soy sauce
This will give you a unique but good tasting creamy green juice. It is best for lunch and dinner and you may even have it as soup in a bowl. With all these ingredients, you will surely have a full bowl of alkaline nutrients. It is best taken immediately but if you wish to cool it, you may as you prefer.
One of the best benefits of alkaline drinks for you is detoxification. They will flush out the toxins in your body giving you a cleaner system and a lighter feeling about your body.
