This is a delicious alkalizing green smoothie recipe that I have almost daily; it’s a great way to help balance your PH levels and with the Omega 3 benefits from the flax oil and natural b vitamins from the berries, it’s a perfect way to start your day! Strawberries are not only nature’s way of giving us a sweet treat, but they are also packed with helpful nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese, are a very good source of dietary fiber and iodine, potassium, folate, riboflavin, vitamin B5, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin B6, vitamin K, magnesium, and copper.
For those of you who are new to kale, it can often have a slight bitter taste and I like this recipe because the sweetness from the berries helps counteract that. If you choose to use a protein powder, opt for a grain and dairy free version that’s flavored with stevia ideally. I prefer Wheatgrass which is naturally gluten free and sprouted.

Amazing Grass wheat grass powder is an excellent concentrated food source of beta-carotene, calcium, chlorophyll, fiber, iron and vitamin K. It is also a very good source of protein, vitamin C, vitamin B-12, folic acid, vitamin B-6, trace minerals and contains all essential amino acids.
Ok, back to the smoothie. As well as the Wheatgrass, I also I always strive to add omega-3 fats to all of my smoothies by adding hemp seeds and/or flax. My favorite is Barleans, Highest Lignan Flax Oil Liquid – 100% Organic Flax Oil.
Some of the benefits of Flax Oil include:
- Pure, unfiltered and unrefined source of essential omega-3 fatty acids and nutrient-rich lignans
- Promotes heart health and healthy cholesterol levels
- Improves joint mobility & bone density
- Helps maintain healthy blood glucose levels
- Protects skin & hair health
In addition to the benefits from the wheatgrass, kale, berries and flax, the avocado also The avocado, also highly alkalizing, makes the texture smooth, creamy and dreamy. I recommend always adding avocado to your blended green drinks.

Hi, I'm Jen, and I launched InspiredEats after being diagnosed with several food allergies, and battling auto-immune conditions including Hashimotos, Adrenal Fatigue, Pyroluria and vitamin deficiencies. I have overcome most all conditions by following the Paleo Diet. My hope is to help so many others like me who are suffering and don't understand how to heal. That's the meaning behind my message: Eat.Heal.Thrive.
