Alkaline Juice Cleanse Recipes

Our alkaline juice cleanse recipes provide a good way of helping your body to maintain a slightly alkaline state. Alkaline diet theory is gaining more and more attention every day and nutritionists are starting to take it much more seriously.

Our natural healthy state is a ph balance of 7.35-7.45, which is slightly alkaline. It’s known that when your body starts veering towards an acidic state it has to work extra hard to bring it back into a state that is slightly alkaline. One of the ways this is done is by sapping calcium reserves, as well as other minerals out of our bones in order to help buffer this imbalance.

Some nutritionists now, as well as many others are also seeing a link between acidity in our bodies and many poor health conditions that are plaguing our modern world. Many chronic health conditions are being connected to this acid/alkaline balance, and while there is still debate as to what the absolute truth is. There are many that are convinced that this imbalance is at the bottom of a myriad of health problems.

The alkaline juice recipes below use a good mix of vegetables and fruit that are known to be highly alkalizing for your body. Many alkaline juice recipes use fruit that is higher in sugar, which according to the top researchers in this field are acidic due to this sugar content. In keeping in tune with this, I have done my absolute best to use only alkaline ingredients that are lower in sugar and that are also found in the lists of the top authorities relating to this field.

Carrots and coconut juice have been found by many authorities in this field to be among the few types of fruit and vegetables with sugar to have an overall alkalizing effect once inside of the body. For this reason I have chosen to include them in some of the alkaline juice recipes that are listed here.

(If you are looking for a way to get alkaline more optimally, you should really consider The Complete Guide To Doing A 7 Day Juice Cleanse. Our eBook provides a whole lot of value, and will give you all of the information you need to do a good alkaline juice cleanse.) 

If you have any questions or comments at all please feel free to leave them in the comments section below! You will also find some more resources related to alkaline diet beneath the last of the juice recipes near the bottom of the page as well.

Recipe #1.

Tropical Alkaline Breeze

Simple recipe.

1 Young thai coconut
8 Carrots
2 Stalks Celery

If you want something more precise.

Young thai coconut juice= 11 ounces juice
(4 and 1/2 cups carrots chopped) Carrots= 9 ounces juice
(1 and 1/2 cups chopped) Celery= 4 ounces juice

Yields about 24 ounces of juice.

This alkaline juice cleanse recipe makes a moderately sweet juice that is just awesome! When using the young coconut you do not juice any of the actual flesh. You simply open the coconut and then pour the coconut water into your juice mix. Happy juicing!

Recipe #2.

Refreshing Green Energy

Simple recipe.

1/2 Bunch (7 leaves) Kale
1 Large handful Basil
1 Cucumber
2 Stalks (bulb part leaves included) Fennel
4 Large Carrots
1 Knuckle Ginger

If you want something more precise.

(2 and 1/2 cups chopped) Kale= 2 ounces juice
(1 cup chopped) Basil= 1 and 1/2 ounces juice
(2 cups chopped) Cucumber= 6 ounces juice
(1 cup chopped) Fennel= 3 ounces juice
(3 cups chopped) Carrots= 7 ounces juice
(1 and 1/2 inch square) Ginger= under an ounce of juice

Yields about 20 and 1/2 ounces of juice.

When it comes to the fennel in this juice you want to cut two stalks including the bulb part on the bottom. This will give you the stalks, leafy part, and the bulb part. This recipe is among the alkaline juice cleanse recipes that creates more of a vegetable juice, which is not really sweet at all. The flavors do balance each other out well though and this juice is lower on the glycemic index. This juice is also very alkalizing and makes a great addition to an alkaline diet.

The kale we used when creating this recipe was a curly variety of kale, but you can use whatever type of kale you like.

The Green Cooler

Simple recipe.

3 Ounces fresh squeezed wheatgrass juice
1 Juice of Coconut
1 Large Cucumber

If you want something more precise.

3 ounces fresh squeezed wheatgrass juice
8 and 1/2 ounces coconut juice(water)
(2 cups chopped) Cucumber= 6 and 1/2 ounces juice

Yields about 18 ounces of juice.

This alkaline juice cleanse recipe makes a juice that’s not really sweet, yet you can taste the coconut and wheatgrass juice through the cucumber. Young coconut juice generally is much better than the typical coconut juice, but I did not have access to that when I made this juice. Whatever type of coconut you have will work as it will still contribute to the alkalinity of this juice recipe when it comes to alkaline juice recipes and also juice cleanse recipes in general. You have to be creative as you want to keep them lower in sugar, yet also tasty enough to enjoy. I compiled a start to finish picture below of my little adventure on the morning this juice was made. I just love making myself a nice tall alkaline juice in the morning! What a way to start the day!


Recipe #4.

The Mini Super Alkaline Juice!

Simple recipe.

1/2 Large Cucumber
4 Stalks Celery
1/2 Large Lemon (or 2 small lemons)

If you want something more precise.

(2 cups chopped) Cucumber= 6 ounces juice
(2 cups chopped) Celery= 5 ounces juice
(3/4 cup chopped) Lemon= 1 and 1/2 ounces juice

Yields 12 and 1/2 to 13 ounces of juice.

As far as alkaline juice cleanse recipes go, this one definitely has a lemony juice taste to it. The cucumber, as well as being very alkaline, helps to level out the flavor though and makes this an easy juice to enjoy. When juicing the lemons, use the entire lemon (peel and all)!


Recipe #5.

Leafless Alkaline Salad Juice  

Simple recipe.

3 Heads Broccoli
8 Carrots
3 Stalks Celery
1/2 Large Cucumber

If you want something more precise.

(5 cups chopped) Broccoli= 8 and 1/2 ounces juice
(4 cups chopped) Carrots= 9 ounces juice
(1 and 3/4 cups chopped) Celery= 5 ounces juice
(1 and 3/4 cups chopped) Cucumber= 4 ounces juice

Yields about 26 and 1/2 ounces of juice.

Alkaline juice cleanse recipes need to tie together nutritious alkaline ingredients in a way that is palatable. This juice makes a very nutritious alkaline blend and is also easy to drink.

      You know, I thought the same exact thing at first, but really took a lot of time researching what is considered acidic once it is inside of the body and what is considered alkaline once it is inside of the body.

      It is amazing how many charts list sugary fruits as alkaline and I know after reading through much of the research that this cannot be so. This is definitely why I did not include any sugary fruits inside of any alkaline juice recipe we made here.

      Believe it or not though, carrots came up as moderately alkaline on every single list and chart that I have found. I found it there also in the lists of the top authorities as it relates to the alkaline diet. I would have to do more research myself on this, but maybe it has something to do with there being a greater amount of alkalizing minerals inside of the carrots vs the lower sugar content that is present.

      I decided to include carrots in a few of the recipes for this reason only. I figured they would also make the juices more palatable for people not so used to a juice with only vegetables or non sugary fruits.

      If you can find any solid information that points to them being acidic inside of the body, I would be more than happy to not include them in any of these juice cleanse recipes as I definitely want these juices to be strong alkalizers for the body. From what I have found so far after extensive research though, is that carrots are considered to be moderately alkalizing once inside of the body.

      Again Mary Kay thank you very much for your comments!

    Thanks for responding to my comments and for taking them to heart.  Well, you know, carrot juice is one of my favorite foods, so now maybe I can feel less guilty when I drink more of it!  Thanks again.

      Hello Ridho,

      Those vegetables and fruit in combination would make a great juice! If your goal is to make a strong alkaline juice you may want to cut the apples. Although apples are not very acidic they would not contribute a whole lot to the alkalinity of the juice. It would still be a very healthy and tasty juice other than this!

  2. Rina says

    I’m so glad I found this site! I wonder if there is a way to tell if my alkaline is too high.
    I had my gallbladder removed 29 years ago, and sometimes still get those terrible pains. Much research and medical tests later, doctor concludes that the pains are from spasms in my stomach caused by who knows what? So, I wonder if it is an accumulation of acids in my stomach (accumulated over time) and when it becomes too much, my stomach goes into spasms so painful that I’ve been taken to hospital twice. Once the spasms end, I’m feeling week, but otherwise fine.
    Can being high alkaline cause these symptoms? Is alkaline the same as acidic? How can I find out if I’m alkaline imbalanced?
    Thank You

      Hello Rina!

      We are glad that you have found us as well and hope we can help out in any way. To start Alkalinity is the opposite of Acidity. I will be honest and say right up front that I do not know if your problem stems from acidity or not. I also am not sure if being too high on the alkaline side could cause this.

      In general it is much rarer to be more highly alkaline than acidic in today's world. Most people suffer from being over acidic. This does not mean that this is what is going on with you, but at least it could be a possible place for you to begin searching. I know that the stomach is acidic by nature and alkalinity/acidic theory deals with the state that our body is in overall. This does not mean that this could not be causing problems for you, I just wanted to put that out there.

      There are strips that people use to test themselves to check their alkalinity or acidity, but I cannot personally attest to their accuracy. After searching for a while I did find these alkaline/acid test strips that many rated well, and some nutritionists recommended.

      I know it has been 29 years since you had your gallbladder removed, but I do know the gallbladder has some important functions associated with it. As with so many of us our diets can be the source of many health problems that can be difficult to pinpoint with our current understanding of the human body. If your diet is not clean I would suggest you considering making a shift over to more raw foods, and include some green juices in there. As you go be sure to listen to your body. We are all different and have different reactions to what we put inside of us.

      I am speaking from personal experience when I say that changing my diet and also my stress levels has had a huge affect on me. I have worked on becoming less acidic overall and more alkaline. I have done this with foods and reducing my stress levels (this is all an ongoing effort on my part). Hopefully this will be of some help to you Rina, and we truly hope that you will find something to ease the pain of the spasms. If you have any other questions about anything let us know!

  3. Veronica says

    Hi there, I’d like to know if I can use these recipes for a 3 day fast. I have many inflammations throughout my body. Just wondering if fasting might help me with my pain. How many drinks do I make a day and does it have to be different recipes throughout the day or same recipe?

    • says

      Hello Veronica,

      You can absolutely use these for a 3 day juice fast/cleanse. Speaking from my own experience and the experience of many other people we know, juicing definitely can help with inflammation. I cannot make any guarantees for your specific situation, but if you are anything like many other people, there is a good chance it can help.

      You might want to mix some of these juice recipes on this page up with some of our green juice recipes, and green juice recipes for beginners. While the juice recipes here are very alkalizing, it may take your palate a bit of time to adjust to only consuming these juices alone. You can drink a minimum of a gallon a day of green juice, which also includes these alkaline juices if you are cleansing.

      You might want to also consider looking into other foods in your diet that could be contributing to inflammation in your body. I have also found that stress has the potential to increase inflammation, so being in a more relaxed state is highly beneficial. I personally found that gluten, dairy and processed foods in general seem to contribute to inflammation in my body.

      I do not really have much of an inflammation problem at all anymore, but I was once diagnosed with psioriatic arthritis and I had bad inflammation then. This was all before I changed my diet and started juicing. Since I have done that I rarely experience any inflammation at all.

      You can learn more about juice cleansing by reading the posts we have under the category Juice Cleanse Information. This is at the top of every page of our site. We also recently finished our Ebook The Complete Guide To Doing A 7 Day Juice Cleanse, which you may be interested in. That book is a very thorough guide for doing a juice cleanse the right way. It includes all of the information anyone would need to do one successfully. You can read more about that book here.

      We hope this will be some help to you, and if you have any other questions at all Veronica feel free to ask away!

    Hello, i have Polycystic ovarian syndrome and Antiphoshilipid syndrome. For the Pcos i have been told to follow a alkaline diet. Would just making a juice accomodate this?

    • says

      Making alkaline juices would definitely help, but if you are trying to follow an alkaline diet then you would want to change other areas of your diet also. Lowering your intake of acidic beverages, foods, as well as processed sugars, and adding in their place more vegetables and fruits would go a long way with this. 

  5. Gina says

    I’ve read that kale, spinach, beets, chard and probably other vegies have oxalic acid which can cause stones

    [bladder I think]. I used kale for months and began to have bladder pain; so I switched to Romaine lettuce.

    Is alternating from week to week a solution? More than one kind of organic leafy green vegie for a week’s

    juicing is not economical. What is your M.O. ? I only do 2 glasses a day most days.

    • says

      Hey Gina,

      Spinach, Beets, and Chard are higher in oxalic acid, but Kale is not. I actually did a load of research on this a few years back and roll my eyes when I see kale mentioned in that list. Whoever has written the articles about oxalic acid and included kale hasn’t done deep enough research, and are probably just regurgitating information they found by doing basic Google searches.

      There is a bit here about oxalic acid directly from this article I wrote some years ago. It was about vegetable sources of calcium but is relevant to your question here.

      Also this page here includes a list of some vegetables and fruits and there oxalic acid content. You’ll notice that kale is on the bottom of the list.

      I can’t say for sure what your bladder pain has to do with, but kale is also a cruciferous vegetable and some people do have issues with hypothyroidism when taking in too many cruciferous vegetables. Mainly if there is a lack of iodine in their diet. I found this article on that subject to be interesting:

      If the bladder pain has subsided since you switched away from kale, then there might be something going on there. It’s always good to listen to your body and make appropriate changes. You could try alternating and see how you feel.

      We also completely understand about the economical part, and completely recommend switching up what you include in your juices! We will sometimes juice a lot more of a specific ingredient, because it’s in season and/or on sale at the time. It’s also a good way to mix up the specific kinds of nutrients you’re getting into your body.

      I hope this will be of help to you Gina. Keep us posted about how switching your juicing up works out for you.

    Would lemons be considered acidic?

    I just bought a juicer, love your site and advice, and I can’t wait to start trying some of these recipes.

    • says

      Hey Brian, I really need to add this link to the page and I will do that soon, but for now here is a link to a page I wrote some years back specifically about the vegetables and fruits that are most alkaline. Lemons are interesting because they are acidic outside of our body, but become alkaline once we ingest them. You can read more in that article, and welcome to the site! Any other questions ever just let us know.

    Hi, I’ve just been diagnosed with breast cancer and will be having a mastectomy followed by chemo … My cancer is hormone receptive and I’ve been told by a family friend that introducing raw foods into my diet through juicing would do me the world of good. I have never juiced in my life and wondered if you could give me any tips on the best juice combinations for my situation?


    • says

      Hello Jodie,

      First off, I’m very sorry to hear about your diagnosis and wish you the absolute best with your healing. I just answered a similar question to yours a few weeks back, and instead of re-typing that out here, I wanted to link you to the page with that answer. I’ts in the comments on this page here where I responded to someone named Noorany. You can find it by scrolling to near the bottom of the page and looking through the comments or by holding your control key on your keyboard, while typing the letter f at the same time. When the box come up type in noorany . This will take you directly to her question and my answer so you don’t have to bother with searching through the comments for it.

      On top of what I had to offer there I linked Noorany to this page from our friend Bob about juicing for cancer and I also want to link you to this article Bob wrote about Apple Juice Recipes to Fights Breast and Lung Cancer .

      Be sure to read what I had to say on that page I linked you to where Noorany asked about breast cancer, because I also talked about a lot of other vegetables and fruits that could be helpful. If you have a hard time finding that answer let me know and I’ll have no problem emailing it to you.

      You might also get a lot out of our juicing for beginners page Jodie, which will give you a lot of the basics about juicing and how to get started.

      I wish you the best Jodie, and seriously if you have any other questions ever let us know! We will do our absolute best to provide whatever answers we can for you.
