Spring Green Drink

Looking to boost the “green” intake of everyone in your family? Here are two nutritious green drinks that I highly recommend:

Dr. Mehmet Oz’s Green Drink Recipe (serves 3 to 4).  This recipe was shared with Oprah by Dr. Mehmet Oz when she was doing her 21-day vegan cleanse.  This smoothie can be made in a juicer or a blender.

Ingredients:
Organic produce is highly recommended.

-2 apples (cored, with skin)

-2 BIG handfuls of spinach

-1 medium cucumber

-3 ribs/sticks of chopped celery

-1/2 inch or tsp ginger root, peeled

-1 punch parsley

-juice of 1 lime

-juice of ½ lemon

Directions: Blend in a blender, pour, and enjoy!

*************************
The second recipe I liked was a little shorter, and I ended up modifying it a little bit (the strawberries and the touch of honey were my additions;  I had used arugula as the baby greens and it just seemed like it needed a bit of sweetness).

Detox Green Drink

Ingredients:
Organic produce is highly recommended.

-1 bag organic baby greens (I just used a BIG handful)

-2 stalks celery

-1/2 small apple

-3-4 baby carrots

-1 small handful parsley-water to taste

optional:  3-4 strawberries, without stems (please use organic!) and a touch of honey

Directions: Blend in a blender, pour, and enjoy!

Have fun with green drinks!  If your kids see you enjoying them, they are more likely to be inspired!
