Dr Oz’s Green Drink + My new Juicer

If you follow me on twitter, fbook or instagram; then you know that I was SUPER excited to get my juicer for Mother’s Day. Best Mother’s day present ever right? I researched juicers for a while and had been on the prowl. I wanted to make my kids organic juice made with real fruit juice, imagine that. I also am not a fan of breakfast and every morning the only thing I want is juice or a smoothie (wish I had the same liquid diet mentality for the rest of the day, I might be skinny).
my big girl juicer
So up first on the juice list was the Dr. Oz Green Drink which is supposed to be amazing for you, I mean Dr Oz likes it so it must be good! Between owning a business and raising two little boys, I worry if I am squeezing enough vegetables into our diet so I figure I will have this most mornings (just in case I want to have Mexican food and margaritas later :) I read a bunch of different websites and apparently I was brave to start with this juice, some people said it can be bitter so for my first batch I took some of the commenter’s advice and sweetened it up a tad without loosing any nutrition.
Dr Oz’s Green Drink(modified a little for a newbie)
2 c spinach – which I always add to smoothies and you cant ever taste it!
1 cucumber
1 bunch celery
1″ ginger root
1 bunch parsley
3 apples (original only calls for 2)
1 lime
1 lemon
4 carrots (original doesn’t call for carrots but I added for sweetness)
Basically just wash everything and if it has a peel you wouldn’t eat like lime and lemon then cut that off. All other parts are fine, I put in whole apples and the whole bunch of celery, leaves and all.
The worst part for me was the color… after a few minutes it starts to get a green/brown because it is so fresh. I was thinking to myself no wonder they add chemicals; I don’t think most people would buy juice this color.  But don’t judge a juice by it color! It turned out to be really good. Next time I am going to do a little less cucumber because it was too dominant for me. I did love the celery and ginger in it. Overall it was so refreshing, and after a glass you feel really energized. It is also really filling and my kids even liked it! Double score!
By the way of you don’t have a juicer you can do this in a blender too which actually adds more fiber. In my research I found all the pros and cons of blender vs. juicer, one adding fiber but one getting the vitamins to your bloodstream quicker because you don’t have to break down the fiber… ppl are really serious about their juice! So do you think you are brave enough to try it? Or have you already tried it, and if so what did you think? And do you have other healthy juice recipes I need to try?
