NEW DR. OZ GREEN JUICE RECIPE
The original Dr. Oz Green Juice recipe that he first shared with the world on Oprah, may have been a little too “green” for people new to green juices – so he created a new one that has more fruit to sweeten it up a bit.
We love the combination of pineapple and apple with over 5 nutritional powerhouse greens – and we think you will too.
Of course, Blender Babes kept all the fiber and made it a whole juice by using a high powered blender – but you can make it in a traditional juice extractor as well.
You too can start your day with the green breakfast juice that Dr. Oz swears by! This green juice is super low-calorie yet rich in many essential vitamins.
Plus the lemon, lime, celery, and parsley are incredibly detoxing and cleansing.
Community member Blender Babe Kerry H asked us: Do we put the lemon, lime & orange in the Vitamix WITH their thick skins on?? I peel certain things before putting in Vitamix, generally cucumbers, oranges, lemons, limes, etc:
- 1 1/2 cups 12 ounces filtered water or coconut water
- 1 cup spinach

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PARSLEY
Studies show that myristicin, an organic compound found in the essential oil of parsley, not only inhibits tumor formation (especially in the lungs), but also activates an enzyme which helps the molecule glutathione attach to, and ﬁght against, oxidized molecules. Along with luteolin, the vitamin C found in parsley serves as an effective anti-inﬂammatory agent within the body.
When consumed regularly, they combat the onset of inflammatory disorders, such as osteoarthritis (the degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone) and rheumatoid arthritis (a disease causing inﬂammation in the joints).
Also, a mere two tablespoons of parsley have a whopping 153% of the RDA of vitamin K. (Source: Health Diaries)
