Dr. Oz Detox Favorite Green Smoothie

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 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 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. :)

Recipe type: Detox Breakfast Smoothie

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (or raspberries, blackberries, mangoes, papaya)
  • 1 tbsp flax oil
