What is an alkaline smoothie?

An alkaline smoothie is a smoothie that has a high pH level and shouldn’t cause acid reflux or GERD symptoms. Smoothies can be loaded with acid once you add in things like berries, and juices. It’s important to make sure that you’re not just consuming an acidic smoothie if you easily suffer from indigestion. I definitely suffer after consuming coffee. Almond milk has an alkaline composition which helps neutralize your stomach acid, so I always have that in the house, especially for smoothies.

If your doctor suggests a change in diet, consider The Acid Watcher’s Book by Dr. Aviv. It contains a 28 day diet program that may help your reflux/GERD symptoms. After reading many books which were supposed to help, this one actually did.

What is in our alkaline smoothie

we load it up with tons of high pH fruits and greens so we use the following:

  • melon – they are high pH (for example watermelon pH level 8.8 or cantaloupe pH level 8.5)
  • mango or banana for creaminess (mango pH level 5.8 and banana pH level 5.6)
  • choice of berries (we use these for antioxidants but they need to be neutralized with non-dairy milk)
  • choice of greens (kale, spinach, etc)
  • choice of non-dairy milk (this is used to neutralize the berries and also bring up the pH of the smoothie)
  • super seeds like hemp, flax seed, or chia.

A smoothie makes for a great addition to your breakfast. I like having a toasted English muffin with avocado, tomato, and cracked pepper & salt with my morning smoothie.

When trying to reduce acid reflux you’ll want to try to avoid acidic food, trigger foods, spicy foods, fried foods, processed foods, caffeine, and chocolate.

Stick to eating smaller meals about 5-6 per day, ones that don’t make you feel overfull. Once you feel full your stomach contents will rise up into your esophagus. Raising your bed by the headboard and not eating 3 hours before lying down for bed also helps some.

Skip sodas, coffees, teas, and opt for water. We drink high pH water, evamor or essentia when drinking water on an empty stomach.

Ensure you’re eating fresh fruits and vegetables with a pH level of 5 and above (more veggies than fruit).

When you mix greens and berries you’ll have a brown smoothie. Both smoothies above have the same exact ingredients, we just blended some of it separately.
