Dr Oz Favorite Green Smoothie

Learn how to make Dr Oz's 3 Day Detox drinks. His favorite green smoothie recipe (he calls it a shake, but really it's a green smoothie) combines high antioxidant berries (or you can substitute with tropical fruits such as mango or papaya), 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 and vegetable cell walls for maximum absorption in the body and for the smoothest of smoothies.
