Smoothies and grain drinks are mostly alkalizing. But there are several acid-forming smoothies. Especially, drinks with added protein. Or grain drinks made with milk. However, that’s not the main concern in your alkaline diet. Because PRAL calculations are best applied to real food and drinks. Not highly processed factory foods.
Alkaline smoothies are easy to make at home from fresh ingredients. But you should seek medical advice before making changes to your diet. So discuss the type of drinks that suit you best with your doctor, dietitian, or other qualified health professional.

For the smoothies and grain drink category, the average PRAL values are -1.10 per 100 grams and -2.14 per 100 calories. To put this in context, compare with other nonalcoholic beverages in the Food Category List.
Your Alkaline Smoothies and Grain Drinks
Remember, factors such as growing conditions, variety, and preparation methods affect all food nutrients. USDA database values are an average of many samples. So your PRAL values for smoothies will vary from day to day. But they are always an estimate of actual acid load on your kidneys.
