Readers always ask me if there is a quick and convenient way to make alkaline juices and drinks without a fancy juicer. And, yes, there is! While I love my Omega Juicer and I have been using it for over five years now, sometimes I get busy and need something simple- a plan B.
Knowing how to conjure up a delicious, energizing, nutrient-rich drink quickly is a fantastic skill to have! Especially if you go traveling or are pressed for time.
Making Alkaline Juices without a Juicer- What You Need to Know
Ok, honesty time.
There will be certain limitations, and the list of ingredients will be very tiny (but still awesome). But we can totally do this!
This form of juicing stimulates creativity. And since it’s so easy and simple, there are no excuses!
Here’s Exactly What You Need to Make Your Super Healthy Juices
#1 A simple lemon squeezer.
Something like this one:
When life throws lemons at You – sqeeze them fast!
#2 A simple water pitcher to filter your water.
So that you can make super healthy herbal infusions for your drinks.
Personally, I use Alkanatur. It’s inexpensive, very effective and the water tastes great!
You can check them out on Amazon HERE.
#3 Fruits to squeeze, such as lemons, limes, and grapefruits.
In case you are new to this- fruits such as lemons are actually considered alkaline (even though they taste acidic).
It’s because of their low sugar content and high mineral/vitamin profile.
The same rule applies to limes and grapefruits.
#4 Alkaline-friendly milk, for example, coconut milk or nut milk such as almond milk.
#5 Herbal infusions, such as fennel tea, mint tea, or chamomile tea. Roibosh tea is also amazing!
If you are not too concerned about caffeine, you can also use a bit of red or green tea.
#6 Any superfood powder you wish to add, for example, turmeric powder, ginger powder, or the Organifi green powder that fuses a myriad of different superfoods.
