This is the recipe for the Dr. Oz green drink. I tried it and liked it. It has 274 calories for the whole thing so you could have half in the morning and half in the evening.


Units: US | Metric
2 cups spinach
1 -2 medium cucumber (approx 2 cups)
1 stalk celery
1/2 inch gingerroot (or 1 teaspoon)
1 bunch chopped parsley (approx 1/2 cup chopped)
2 apples , cored
1 lime, juice of
1/2 lemon, juice of
4 ounces mineral water (or a handful of ice cubes)
Optional ingredients
raw carrot
unsweetened fruit juice

Put all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
This recipe makes 28 to 30 ounces or about three to four servings. This will be very thick and you may need to add water - If you have a juicer this may work better.
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.
