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!
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.
