DR. OZ FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE

Dr. Oz’s fountain of youth green smoothie recipe is full of ingredients to help keep your body feeling young while all of the stressors of the world try to keep it down!

If the legendary fountain of youth is ever found, it will most likely contain TONS AND TONS of greens!

This vegan green smoothie breakfast shake is a Dr. Oz Recipe that utilizes wheatgrass, which is a superfood that keeps damaging toxins from invading your skin.

Coconut water fights to keep your skin hydrated. Coupled with a slew of powerful antioxidants, this green smoothie provides a perfect mix of healthy ingredients that will detox your body and keep your skin from aging prematurely.

Now I HAVE tested this with E3live blue green algae – which has 5x more chlorophyll than wheatgrass. So if you have E3live or spirulina on hand, these are great substitutes for wheatgrass.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF WHEATGRASS

Wheatgrass may appear simple grass, but it is actually one of the most powerful natural detoxifying agents. In fact, it is said that just one ounce of wheatgrass is equivalent in nutritional value to more than 2 pounds of leafy green vegetables! From suppressing the appetite to reducing body odor to preventing cancer, wheatgrass has a place in your diet.

Wheatgrass contains more than 90 minerals, including potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium as well as essential enzymes and 19 amino acids. The following 4 ways to use wheatgrass will introduce your health to new possibilities.

1. Suppress Appetite
Take a wheatgrass shot each morning on an empty stomach and it may prevent overeating since it’s loaded with so many nutrients that your body isn’t hungering for other foods to compensate for lack of vitamins or minerals.

2. Stimulate Circulation
Because wheatgrass has the ability to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood, it is a great way to stimulate circulation.

3. Improve Digestion
Introduce wheatgrass into your daily regimen and avoid having to reach for antacids to relieve heartburn or indigestion because of its vitamin B, amino acids and enzyme content. From irritable bowel syndrome to ulcers, wheatgrass is a great tool that can be used to improve your digestion.

4. Treat Arthritis
Health experts believe wheatgrass can be effective to treat arthritis. This is because if has loads of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll fights inflammation, associated with joint pain.

  1. I’m allergic to pineapple! What can I use in place of it that will give the same benefits as pineapple, since it is so highly recommended in smoothies??

    1. Blender Babes

      Fruit I would substitute pineapple first with papaya, then mango, but also peaches! You won’t get all the same nutrition, but there’s still lots of good stuff in it. 🙂 Pineapple contains bromelain which is anti-inflammatory and papaya also contains bromelain if that’s the nutrient you’re looking for. HAPPY BLENDING!
