DR. OZ DETOX FAVORITE GREEN SMOOTHIE RECIPE
Dr. Oz ‘s 3 Day Detox Plan includes his favorite green smoothie recipe (he calls it a shake, but really it’s a green smoothie). Again Dr. Oz combines high antioxidant berries (or you can substitute with tropical fruits such as mango or papaya), with a large amount of lightly flavored green (spinach!) and a non dairy milk. The e3live or spirulina, maca superfood, and plant based protein powder make this a pretty kick butt vegan green smoothie! As usual, we recommend a high powered blender such as a Vitamix or Blendtec 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 OF E3LIVE, SPIRULINA, AND MACA ROOT
E3live is considered by renowned health authorities to be nature’s most beneficial superfood. E3Live AFA is a non-GMO heirloom variety. Physiologically, E3Live® helps restore overall body/mind balance in numerous ways. Its field of action simultaneously includes the immune, endocrine, nervous, gastro-intestinal and cardio-vascular systems. Nutritionally, E3Live® provides more than 65 vitamins, minerals, amino acids & essential fatty acids and is a rich source of chlorophyll.
Spirulina is another form of blue green algae that is more common and well known. It has similar health benefits as E3Live and you can learn more about them here.
Maca root has been used by indigenous societies (including the Incan’s!) as a source of nourishment and healing for thousands of years. Studies have identified four alkaloids present in maca known to nourish the endocrine system. Maca root has been used as a stress-fighting adaptogen to increase stamina, boost libido and combat fatigue!
Please note: Dr. Oz is not affiliated with or endorses e3live. His favorite detox recipe originally includes spirulina vs e3live. To learn more about the differences between e3live and spirulina click here.

Great recipe! I like that they added maca as an optional ingredient. I use it in all my smoothies.
Loved the smoothie. The maca gave it a nutty taste which I loved.
I had to start the challenge a day late so I have not tried this one yet. But I am looking forward to it for tomorrow!
I live for my smoothies this is going in rotation
Besides the very alluring color, I love smoothies with berries for their antioxidant properties.
I used blueberries and Vega One vanilla protein powder – loved the taste.
Had this for breakfast this morning! So fresh, flavourful, and simple – I didn't even need the stevia or dates! Will be using this recipe often!
I loved the sweetness the dates added to what could have been a tart smoothie due to the berries!
I loved the maca powder! It gives it almost a chocolaty taste :).
Bought my Vitamix with full intentions of making my cardio problem better, but had no idea how. . . Now I have the recipes I so need to help improve my own health! Thank you very muchand thank your show, I am a loyal fan and take notes for my 75 year old partner that is so healthy it almost hurts! ! ! He truly is amazing. Your info has helped us make decisions that proved to be best, after 2 strokes, 2brain surgeries and a life dealing with the side effects of the neuro meds I always end up with some kind of problem. . Either from the meds or from a surgery, that was supposed to help reduse my meds, but for whatever reason did not work. At my age(61) I am truly grateful to have made it this far this long. I was not sure I would see my 2 children grow up. So all I get to enjoy now are blessings!Never ever did I think I would get to see My very own grand children, I do realize at times this sounds foolish but I was actually in I.C.U. Recovering from an mci. This seems to be the story of my life and even tho I have survived I want it better- I am a fightertwo times they said I wouldn’t walk or talk and I did.Ineed help.
Sharon, thank you so much for sharing your message! We are so happy to hear you have taken charge of your health, we truly believe your Vitamix will help you live healthier. We are glad you are still here with us, it sounds like you have been through a lot! Keep up the good work, so your grand children get to enjoy you! HAPPY BLENDING!
This smoothie was so very good.. Loved it.
Pretty good! As with others, I cut the spinach in half. I used coconut oil as I didn’t have flax and couldn’t find the maca or e3live. I used a protein powder I had gotten on QVC and it made it so creamy!
Perfect! Can’t really make a wrong smoothie. Here at Blender Babes we always say “use what you got!” 🙂
I'm finally OK with Simon spending the amount of money he did on our Vitamix blender!
I can't wait to start seeing the results of doing this!
I would LOVE one of those. I make herbalife shakes every day, but my teeny little single serve blender doesn't do too fabulous when it comes to adding ice/fruits. Let me know how these work, I've always been too much of a scaredy cat to do green smoothies!
I actually like it. When are you going to be in town again? I'll give you one.
As for the blender….dig deep. We paid about $500 bucks! Yikes!
It's one of our favorite recipes! We try with different fruits all the time 🙂 Actually finally made a Blender Babe video of it yesterday with our first MALE Blender Babe!! YUMMY. Let us know your progess. xoxo
