EAT your vegetables! Tired of saying that? Maybe you're tired of hearing that. Either way, Dr. Oz has your vegetable escape hatch. Here's what you do: stop eating those leafy greens and DRINK them!
Dr. Oz has concocted a cocktail that gives you all the fruits and veggies you could want, and you probably won't even notice. Greens like spinach and celery by themselves can be bitter, so in his "Green Drink" he's masked those flavor profiles with apple and lemon or lime juice. In fact, the sweetness of the apples was enough for Dr. Oz to "trick" his own kids into downing a "green drink." The leafy greens give you a boost of energy (use the ones below or experiment with your own), the ginger cuts down on inflammation, and all together this green glass becomes a beautiful breakfast beverage that makes regular fruit juice look puny.
Taste tester Robin Meade says despite all the cucumber, celery, parsley and spinach that make up the base of a "Green Drink," it's the fruit that really comes through.
Here's how to make the healthy, green concoction Dr. Oz prepared on Morning Express with Robin Meade:
Dr. Oz's Green Drink:
2 cups spinach
2 cups cucumber
2 celery ribs
1/2 inch or 1 teaspoon ginger root
1 bunch parsley
Juice of 1 lime
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Combine all ingredients in juicer. Makes approximately 28-30 ounces, or 3-4 servings.
