If you watch Oprah (and who doesn’t), then you’re most likely familiar with Dr. Mehmet Oz and his famous green drink. Dr. Oz says he drinks it just about every morning and Oprah says she too is drinking it every morning.
Dr. Mehmet Oz’s Green Drink Recipe SERVES 3 to 4
- 2 apples (cored, but leave the skin on them)
- 2 BIG handfuls of spinach
- 1 medium cucumber
- 3 ribs/sticks of chopped celery (if you’re using Vita-mix, you only need to cut the celery rubs into thirds)
- 1/2 inch or teaspoon ginger root, peeled
- 1 bunch parsley
- Juice of 1 lime
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
After everything is combined in a blender (a Vita-mix makes this super simple), this recipe makes 28 to 30 ounces — about three to four servings. After Oprah tried this on the show, she was pleasantly surprised and exclaimed “It’s a glass of fresh!”
If you’re not used to green drinks, you may find them a bit earthy in the beginning. An easy solution is to increase the fruit content until you get used to the earthy taste. It’s a good bet one day you’ll be craving green drinks just like Dr. Oz’s recipe. But at the beginning (and for as long as you want), feel free to increase the apple, or add a banana, or add in a fresh mango or cooked sweet potato!
This isn’t a race, it’s a lifestyle.
Here is why the Vita-Mix is so popular.
