After indulging in what felt like a toxic acidic orgy and love fest with Mr Darcy, I've decided to lovingly offer a detox with one of my favourite alkaline green smoothies to celebrate International Green Smoothie Day.

To learn more about the power of green smoothies head to my green smoothie info page in the resources section where I talk in detail about the healthy benefits of drinking green smoothies and how I came to include them in my health regime.

It's important to rotate your greens in order to achieve a balanced nutritional profile in your green smoothies. I get a lot of emails asking me about the excessive consumption of oxalic acid. To avoid oxalic toxicity, I rotate my greens to include romaine, kale, chard, collard greens, radish greens, beet greens, dandelion greens, parsley and many others.

I only use spinach in a lot of the recipes on the blog because spinach is a very mild in flavor, is easily masked by other ingredients, and is widely available. I find spinach to be the best introductory green to help get people excited about green smoothies.

This smoothie is inspired by a blend I tasted at The pH Miracle ranch. It's the smoothie Dr Robert O Young gives all of his patients when they first arrive. This alkaline smoothie is sweet, delicious, and really cleansing. Drink immediately, before the stevia develops an aftertaste. If you can't tolerate stevia, you could add a date.

Happy Green Smoothie Day!
