This purple (vitamineral green turns it green) wonder is an amazing alkalizer with figs being one of the most alkaline fruits. The lettuce is also very alkaline and a good source of chlorophyll. I add the grapes for water content and they are alkaline as well. This makes a thick creamy sweet smoothie loaded with excellent nutrition. If you’re looking to alkalize this smoothie is for you.
2 baskets of ripe figs
1 head of romaine lettuce
½ pound of red grapes
1 handful of fresh sunflower sprouts (optional)
1” chunk of fresh ginger root (optional)
1 tablespoon of super green powder like Vitamineral Green (optional)
The vitamineral Green is very alkaline also. This is great for traveling when you're not sure about the availability of fresh greens or you just want to make you're alkalized to balance out the acid nature of the stress from traveling.
