Alkaline Diet Recipe: Early Fall Energizing Smoothie

Printer Friendly Version

This smoothie is perfect for early fall mornings. The ginger gives it that crisp, zingy sweetness and you can use spinach fresh from the farmer’s markets.

I love incorporating avocado into my smoothies when I can. It gives them a significant source of alkaline minerals, as well as nice thick texture without overpowering the other ingredients.

Plus, there’s plenty of good fat to keep you feeling full well into your morning.

Avocados are good for the brain, heart, skin, hair, and even prevent signs of aging. They are high in soluble fiber, which helps lower cholesterol levels and maintain stable blood sugar levels.

Avocados are high in vitamin E, an antioxidant that regulates inflammation. They also provide you with significant amounts of the essential alkaline minerals such as potassium and magnesium

They’re also high on the list of alkaline forming foods.

The almonds, cinnamon, and cranberries give it that nice fall flare, and the coconut water is a staple in so many smoothies I make.

This combination of healthy ingredients will increase your energy reserve so you are sure to start your morning strong!

[Serves 2]*


2 cups coconut water
½ cup raw soaked almonds*
1 cup cranberries (frozen, organic)
1 cup fresh spinach
1 haas avocado
2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
2 tsp. grated ginger or 1 inch piece of ginger root
1/8 tsp. cinnamon
1 date
½ cup ice cubes

*NIGHT BEFORE Ideally soak raw almonds for at least 12 hours to remove the phytic acid and enzyme inhibitors, which increase absorption once consumed.

Rinse soaked almonds well and put directly in blender with water and spinach and blend. Add remaining ingredients and blend again.

I have achieved something that I never thought could be possible. A little over a year ago I was under so much stress with a grandchild that had open heart surgery, and continued to stress eat. I have type 2 Diabetes and high cholesterol. In the meantime I had been following this Get off your acid 7 day cleanse thinking. ( this looks like something I can do). After things settled down , I did my first cleanse July. It went fabulous. In Aug my Dr. said I was wondering why you numbers looked so good, I explained. Her words were what ever you are doing it’s working. At that point I was down 12 pounds now down 20 pounds. This is my second day in my fall cleanse and there is nothing like it…Dr Daryl Gioffre has changed my life! I love the products, I am addicted to them and the recipes are wonderful, but far most important is my health has completely changed. I feel the best I have in years. Dr D and his wife Chelsea are great support. And Facebook, wow what a great group..Thanks so much. When I am up your way I am stopping in just to give you a big hug!
