Apple alkalaid smoothie recipe

Lifestyle — Posted 27/05/15

A soothing and cleansing detox blend, full of green power.

This detox blend is intensely hydrating and alkalizing. The pectin and mineral salts in the apples combine with the oxalic acid in the spinach for a powerful laxative effect to alleviate constipation and cleanse the colon. Cayenne gets things moving, too – but use a light hand or it’ll set your mouth on fire! 

Serves:

Ingredients

1⁄2 cup (120 ml) coconut water or water 

2 green apples, skin on, cored and roughly chopped (grated, if using a conventional blender) 

1 cup (27 g) loosely packed baby spinach 

1 medium lemon, peeled, seeded, and quartered 

1⁄2 medium cucumber, chopped 

1 teaspoon minced ginger 

10 drops alcohol-free liquid stevia, plus more to taste 

1 cup (125 g) ice cubes 

Boosters

Pinch of cayenne pepper 

1⁄2 teaspoon wheatgrass powder 

1 tablespoon chia seeds 

Method

1. Throw all of the ingredients (except the ice cubes) into your blender and blast on high for about 1 minute, until smooth. 

2. Add the ice and blast for a few seconds more, until smooth and chilled.
