Now obviously this is a stock picture so mine didn't really look like that but it was most definitely green!
Got the Dr. Oz recipe this morning and a friend posted a variation of that recipe for me yesterday so here is that info and how I modified it for my taste. Hey, it's a start!
I needed to have some of my morning "sweetness" and didn't have any apples so had to make a few changes .
This is the original recipe that I received:
Make the breakfast drink that Dr. Oz swears by! This "green drink" is high in fiber, low-calorie and rich in vitamins.
Makes 3-4 servings (about 28-30 oz)
2 cups spinach
1/4 head of celery
1/2 bunch parsley
1 bunch mint
Combine all ingredients in a blender. Serve and enjoy!
This is apparently how it was introduced by Dr Oz on Oprah.
Dr. Oz Green Drink Recipe.
2 apples, cored.
2 big handfuls of spinach.
1/2 cup of chopped parsley.
1 celery stick, chopped.
1 thumbnail length of ginger root, peeled.
1 lemon - juice only (use peel slice for zest).
1 medium cucumber.
Place ingredients in a blender, add 4 oz. spring water or a handful of ice cubes, then puree quickly for one minute. Makes two glasses of Dr. Oz’s green drink.
The green drink has a strong taste and if you are used to drinking soda or sweet tea, the taste will take some getting used to. Dr. Oz suggests adding other items at first to sweeten the green drink to your taste.
Green drink – Optional ingredients:
unsweetened fruit juice.
And this is what I came up with:
1 small orange, peeled & seeded
juice of one lemon
handful of fresh spinach
2-3 baby carrots, cut up
1 stalk celery, cut up
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1 tsp. spirullina
2 Tb. vanilla Yogurt
orange juice to thin
Yummy, but I will still try Dr. Oz's recipe (the 2nd one above) when I have all the ingredients!
