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.

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

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.
