Dr Oz morning green smoothie

A perfect way to start the day. Dr Oz morning green smoothie. Healthy, vegan, gluten free and full of vitamins and minerals.

I haven’t posted a smoothie in the blog for a while even though smoothies are really regular at my house.

This would be the perfect morning drink or snack. It is packed with nutrition and it is extremely refreshing.

Because of the holidays, we tend to eat a bit more at gatherings and such, so go ahead and start your day with this smoothie. You are sure to be energized after you drink it and obtain certain vitamins and minerals you won’t be getting by eating all of the holiday cookies :-)

Because I love ginger I actually used a bit more. If you like you can also add a banana if you think it is too bitter for you. Because I added the lemon ginger juice I found in Trader Joe’s, that sufficed for us.

Two more days until Christmas. I can’t believe it. I think time is going by faster as I get older :-( Not good!!

Well I will leave you with this sensational nutritious drink which I hope you venture to try sometime.

Enjoy!

Just place all of the ingredients in the blender and pulse until smooth. This will sure give you some powerful nutrition to start your day.

  1. I will need one of these after the holiday!

  2. Skinnymommy,
    I know I am buying some more ginger to make it again :-)

  3. I saw this in the Dr Oz show. Looked so good… I guess I’ll give it a try once the holidays are over. Haha.

  4. What have you gone and done now?! Veggies in a smoothie? ;) Kidding, kidding.

    I wish I could eat this. The whole veggie problem would be solved during breakfast and I wouldn’t have it hanging over my head all day.

    I hope you had a great Christmas! :)

  5. i should turn my attention to these smoothies rather than indulging in cookies & hot cocoa.

  6. I thought the Dr.oz smoothie has 11 ingrediants?

  7. Nice post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed!

  9. Got it !! Thanks for responding so quickly. Have a great Holiday season !! I love your ideas…

  10. How do I make a green smoothis for one?

    • You need a juicer for this one. If you want to make a smoothie you can use a blender or an immersion blender. They are fairly inexpensive. Check on amazon :-) Then just decrease the ingredient amt dividing by at least 2, maybe 4 :-)

  11. I think you’re the only person who has ever made a green smoothie look SO appetizing!!! :)

  12. Do you have to put water in as well? I have a ninja blending system and I am new to healthy smoothies and juices but don’t you have to put water in this to blend it?

  13. I love this!! Thank you! I have been drinking these midday after lunch to get me through the rest of a busy day and on weekend mornings. They give me a boost and taste amazing! Ive stocked up on all the ingredients.
