9 Alkaline Recipes That Are Easy and Delicious
1. Green Dip
This refreshing and alkalizing dip uses fresh peas and creamy avocado to get its hue. It’s incredibly versatile, you can even use it as a spread for appetizers.
- 2 cups fresh peas (frozen is also good)
- 1 small avocado
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions or chives
- 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
- 3/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
- Remove the pit from the avocado and roughly chop the flesh.
- Combine avocado, peas, chives, lime juice, salt, and pepper. You can use a food processor with an S blade for a super fine and creamy dip, or mash it a mortar and pestle for a more chunky and rustic feel.
- Transfer into a serving bowl and season to your taste. Add a sprinkling of chives on top for garnishing.
Did You Know?
Avocados are pretty high in alkaline value at +15.6. Peas, on the other hand, are alkaline-forming legumes.
What Is Alkaline-Forming? This is the process of forming an alkaline environment through the ingestion of certain foods. Plant-based foods such as green vegetables, peas, beans, lentils, seeds, nuts, and herbs, are alkaline-forming, and also very dense in nutrients.
2. Kale and Golden Beets Salad

- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup trail mix
- Pour the puffed kamut into a large bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix vanilla and almond milk.
- Grease two separate pans with cooking spray or vegetable oil.
- Add the almond milk mixture and protein powder in a non-stick pot and bring to a boil over medium heat.
- Once the mixture comes to a boil, remove from the heat and stir in the marshmallows.
- After the marshmallows melt, add the ingredients into the large bowl with puffed kamut.
- Add the carob chips and gently combine (be careful as they could melt!)
- Stir in the trail mix.
- Pour the finished mixture into the greased pans and flatten evenly.
- Place the pans into the freezer to set.
- Once they set, tip the slabs onto a cutting board and slice into 16 bars. Be sure to cut them while frozen as they can become extra sticky when slightly warmer.
What Is Puffed Kamut? A high-energy grain thrice the size of modern wheat. It was discovered by the Egyptians thousands of years ago, and are a popular breakfast cereal for health buffs.
What Are Carob Chips? Also called “that other chocolate chip,” carob chips are made from the pods of the carob tree, a diminutive Mediterranean shrub. It is often used as an alternative to chocolate, but is less bitter, less rich, and has a natural sweetness.
