DR. OZ GREEN JUICE RECIPE
Dr. Oz green juice was originally shared with the world on Oprah, and who wouldn’t want a green juice recipe from one of the most well known doc’s around! Dr Oz’s green juice is traditionally made with a juice extractor.  Blender Babes tested the famous doc’s green juice by keeping all the fiber and other nutrition (found in skin & seeds, etc.) and liquefying everything with a high powered blender - and we think it’s just as good!  Don’t fret if you don’t have a powerful Blendtec or Vitamix blender, learn how to make this green juice recipe with a regular blender (note: you will definitely want to cut this recipe in half and use more water). Make sure to use organic ingredients if possible!! Especially since many of these ingredients are part of the dirty dozen that have the most pesticides. THANK YOU Dr. Oz for providing such a great recipe for a green juice smoothie!

If you’re new to green smoothies, try Blender Babes’ FREE Green Smoothie Challenge! Or if you want to detox, check out Blender Babes’ FREE Juice Cleanse. Both include free recipes, shopping lists and group support!. :)

One of our favorites, Dr. Oz has now revised his green juice recipe and made a new one that has more fruit to sweeten it up a bit! :) Make sure to subscribe for updates when new Dr. Oz blender recipes are added, and checkout some of our FREE GIVEAWAYS! Happy Blending!

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
This smoothie is packed with tons of nutrition powerhouses. Besides providing good levels of vitamins A and K, parsley also has several unusual, helpful components: volatile oils which can inhibit tumor formation, especially int he lungs; and flavonoids, which prevent cell damage associated with various diseases, including asthma, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes, glaucoma, heart disease and macular degeneration.

Ginger has many benefits unique to itself, lying in components called gingerols.  Several studies show that ginger (fresh not dried) helps reduce nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy, and when used in tea, can relieve symptoms of the common cold and flu, as well as menstrual cramps, headache, and sore throat.  Gingerols appear to be responsible for relieving inflammation associated with arthritis and migraine.

Don’t forget the lime juice! Limes contain flavonol glycosides, which studies show can interfere with cancer cell growth and act as an antibiotic.

      Oh, whoops, this is the blender version of the recipe. I actually use a juicer, but it's basically the same as above without the water and ice of course- and probably a little bit more of the veggies

      • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

        Thanks Jenny! :) Juice extractors def use a lot more veggies! We like both versions, however we prefer keeping the fiber and other nutrition (and fullness after!), using less produce, and the easy clean up! ;) WE LOVE DR. OZ! Feel free to share your best recipes with us! To Your Health! Blender Babes

  1. Robin Bartekoske says

    I would like to try this. Do these replace a meal? or is this for a snack? how would you keep track or the exchanges? I am new to all this stuff.

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Hello Robin and welcome! This green smoothie is very filling with all the fiber in it, some people can drink a 32oz portion of this and have it replace breakfast or lunch. If you feel hungry 20 minutes after eating, we recommend having a small snack in addition, such as whole grain toast with almond butter & sugar free jam. It’s really up to your bodies needs! :) Typically for weight loss, people replace a meal this way. However if you are just adding more fruits & veggies to your diet, try it as a snack! Hope that answers your question. Make sure to subscribe for new recipe updates :) To Your Health! ~Blender Babes

  2. Angelia Wiley says

    I tried this and loved it. I did not include the ginger and parsley. Added 1 see you of milk, banana and minus apple and a carrot.

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Glad to hear it! We tried many variations with different greens and fruits, all is good. However we recommend milk substitutes and keeping it dairy free. CHEERS! :)

    weight loss goals. You can maintain a healthy weight long
    after your initial weight loss.

  5. Cuci says

    Finally found a support group to put the issue to rest : to juice or to blend !!! All this time i was contemplating (more like tempted) to invest in an expensive slow juicer while my trusty old blender was still doing a great job. I would like to start on veg-fruit smoothies as meal replacement, perhaps for dinner, when I don’t really need much energy as i slow down my day. Is that a good idea ? Of course remembering to keep my healthier, whole food meal choices for breakfast and lunch. This site is so helpful. Hope we all find the resolve to lead healthier lives always . Thanks !

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Hello and welcome! Yes you can absolutely have a veg-fruit smoothie as a meal replacement for dinner. We host free green smoothie weight loss challenges a couple times a year, and many in our groups have replaced their dinner meal instead of breakfast or lunch and found they lost more weight and their digestion was better. Let us know how it goes! :) xo

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Love it Chelse! Yes I agree, a little extra lime, ginger, and honey really adds more flavor to Dr Oz’s green juice :)

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      Hello Janet and WELCOME! You will want to add more liquid. Try halving the ingredients but keeping the liquid amount the same and running your Vitamix for 1.5 minutes (with ICE or frozen fruit to keep it cool!). More liquid will give you more of a juice consistency vs a thicker one like a smoothie. Kale is more bitter than spinach – try adding a touch of stevia or a date to sweeten, or try it with spinach and see if you feel the same. HAPPY BLENDING!

  6. Eddie Mac says

    I prefer this Dr. OZ green juice recipe as it is a bit simpler than the new one. I replaced one apple with a golden beet and spinach for lacinate kale. Also, included the beet stem/leaves. Question: I typically store extra juice in ball jars and store in fridge, is that ok?

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      SOUNDS DELICIOUS! Yes Eddie that’s perfect – it’s what we do. Just be sure to drink them usually within 24 hours, otherwise freeze and defrost/thaw before you’re going to consume. :)

    The green juice is great! Since I have been making green juice, it has helped keep my blood pressure stable. I have been on High Blood Pressure meds for 2 years now, and just started drinking this juice about a month ago, and have started monitoring my pressure, and it has helped it tremendously. Great Health Benefits!

    • Blender BabesBlender Babes says

      WONDERFUL TO HEAR KATREA! So happy for you! Glad it has helped you and thank you for sharing with us and our community. WELCOME. :)

    Hi, My name is Lorraine, I really want and need to lose weight . Like forty pounds to be exact. The only thing is I'm a type 1 diabetic. Is this green smoothie detox safe for me? And if not what is. I'm in desperate need my son is getting married in November and I want to look good . Thank you
    Lorraine Arbuckle

  10. says

    Hey Lorraine! Dr. Oz's green juice is ideal for diabetics, since it's lower in sugar with tons of greens and light on the fruit. If you're asking about his detox smoothie program, both Blender Babes and Dr Oz recommend you ask your doctor first. HAPPY BLENDING!
