Selina's Naturally Alkalizing Green Smoothie

Posted by: Garden of Life on Wednesday, July 30, 2014

We have all heard the old cliché, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” And you probably know the importance of a healthy breakfast for jump-starting your metabolism and preparing you for the day ahead. But did you know that most of us wake up each morning dehydrated and slightly acidic?


With this in mind, it is best to start your morning by drinking several glasses of water with a pinch of Celtic Sea Salt® Makai Deep Sea Salt™. With a pH of 10, Makai Deep Sea Salt™ is an excellent way to begin alkalizing your body. And, the electrolytes in the salt-water mixture will help your body rehydrate more completely.


Once you’re rehydrated, it’s time to nourish your body. One of the most nutritious ways to begin your day is with a green smoothie. When most people think about smoothies, they picture a thick, frosty, sugary fruit drink. And while this type of smoothie makes for a delicious dessert, it is not a healthy way to begin your day.


A morning smoothie should contain very little sugar, and should be full of remineralizing ingredients such as unrefined sea salt, sea vegetables, and lots and lots of green vegetables. We love the following recipe from our friends at Selina Naturally®, and we’re sure you will, too!

 Alkalizing Morning Smoothie

1 Cup Coconut Water

3 Stalks Celery

One Green Apple

½ Cup Parsley

1 Tablespoon Minced Fresh Ginger

1 Lemon, Peeled

1 Cucumber, Unpeeled

4 Large Leaves Green or Red Leaf Lettuce

2 Stalks of Kale

1 Scoop Garden of Life Raw Protein Power

2 scoops Perfect Food Raw Green Food Powder

1 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt® Seaweed Seasoning

½ tsp  MOR® Moringa Powder

¼ tsp Celtic Sea Salt® Makai Deep Sea Salt

1 Handful of Ice (optional)


Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend until very smooth.


Some notes on ingredients:


·         Garden of Life Raw Protein Powder is an excellent source of complete protein, vitamins, and probiotics. Its vegan formula contains live probiotics and protein-digesting enzymes, great for those with digestive issues.


·         Celtic Sea Salt® Seaweed Seasoning is an excellent source of naturally-occurring iodine, calcium, and iron in a delicious gourmet seasoning blend.


·         MOR® Moringa Powder, one of nature’s most potent superfoods, contains over 90 nutrients, 46 antioxidants, and all 8 essential amino acids.


·         Celtic Sea Salt® Makai Deep Sea Salt™ is a pristine white salt harvested from over 2,000 feet below the surface of the ocean. With a pH of 10, this salt is an excellent way to alkalize your body and prepare for the day.
