DR. OZ DETOX BERRIES & GREENS SMOOTHIE
Get started with Dr. Oz’s 3 Day Detox Plan with his easy Berries & Greens Breakfast Smoothie. We love how in this smoothie recipe Dr. Oz combines high antioxidant berries, with a lightly flavored green (spinach!), non dairy coconut milk, and a tasty and satiating tablespoon of coconut oil.  The plant based protein powder addition keeps this breakfast smoothie vegetarian/vegan while adding much needed protein to help keep you full until lunch, as well as essential building blocks for muscle repair if you are exercising/weight lifting.  Of course, we recommend a Blendtec or Vitamix high powered blender to quickly and easily break down fruit & vegetable cell walls for maximum absorption in the body and for the smoothest of smoothies, however we also offer tips on making this green smoothie in a regular blender.

HEALTH BENEFITS & FUN FACTS
Studies have show that intake of coconut oil can help our bodies mount resistance to both viruses and bacteria that can cause illness. Even more, it also can help to fight off yeast, fungus, and candida.  Coconut oil can also positively affect our hormones for thyroid and blood sugar control. People who take coconut oil also tend to have improvements in how they handle blood sugar, for coconut can help improve insulin use within the body. Coconut oil can boost thyroid function helping to increase metabolism, energy and endurance. It increases digestion and helps to absorb fat-soluble vitamins. (Source: Dr Oz)

    This one is yummy. I used a little too much spinach and changed the color but I could really overlook it. I also liked the way the coconut oil made my lips feel as I drank it.

  2. Kelly Kim says

    This one was a little bland compared to the other ones I’ve tried. I would also add a little less coconut oil. It was drinkable though!

  3. stacy says

    it was good a little bland but I made it with just blueberries but I haded some more berries and it was yummy! I would use mixed berries next time I make it!

  4. Lynn says

    I used raspberries and they totally overwhelmed the shake so I would suggest a mixture of berries. But overall, it was good…they all have been?

  5. Lacey Rogers says

    This one is again delicious, satisfied my thirst. I’m craving spinach now outside of the smoothies lol

  6. Sabreena C says

    I like how this smoothie was very quick to make and something I can make if I run out of fresh fruit and have frozen fruits on hand. It was yummy and detoxing. :)
