Dr. Oz’s Green Drink (Juice Recipes for Weight Watchers)

WW Recipe of the Day: Dr. Oz’s Green Drink

Since I had such great success with Blake Lively’s Juice the other day, I decided to rev up my juicer and give another “celebrity juice” a try as we continue our Juice Fest 30 Days of Juicing Experiment. This time it was Dr. Oz’s Green Drink Juice, which I found on JuiceRecipes.com.

According to the site, Dr. Mehmet Oz drinks this green juice recipe every morning, and so does Oprah. He says, “If you’re feeling a little sluggish and slow on the uptake, you’re not alone. Symptoms of peri-menopause include fatigue and memory problems, which may be due in part to fluctuating estrogen levels. For an energy boost that might also give you a cognitive spark, try a glass of the phytoestrogen-rich green drink I swear by.”—Dr. Oz

How’s that for a celebrity endorsement from a most well known doc?

What is in Doctor Oz’s Green Juice/Drink?

There are many variations of Dr. Oz Energizing Green Drink floating around. Here are the ingredients listed on the Oprah website for 4 (8 ounce servings):


2 cups spinach
2 cups cucumber
1 bunch celery
1 tsp. ginger root (or about ½ inch)
1 bunch parsley
2 apples
1 lime
½ lemon


Combine the spinach, cucumber, celery, ginger root, parsley, apples, the juice of one lime, and the juice of half a lemon in a high powered blender. Mix until liquid.

Does Green Juice Help You Lose Weight?

It depends. If you do a “juice diet” or “juice fast” which limits solid food and significantly restricts calories, you may experience weight loss, at least in the short term. The fewer calories you take in while juicing the more rapidly you’ll lose weight.

But weight loss isn’t necessarily the same as fat loss. It’s usually water loss. And you will likely gain the weight back as soon as you go back to your normal eating pattern.

Even if you don’t lose weight the health benefits of juicing fresh fruits, vegetables and leafy greens, include consumption of important nutrients, vitamins and minerals, which are vital for good health

Which juice is best for weight loss?

If you’re considering investing in a juicer and trying out a juice cleanse or some juicing recipes for weight loss, these five fresh juices are worth considering:

Grapefruit juice which may keep hunger at bay and speed up metabolism.
Kale juice because it’s packed with B-complex vitamins and minerals, which actually help you derive energy from other nutrients.
Celery juice which is actually a great post-workout choice because it’s a good source of natural organic sodium, which replaces the electrolytes you lose when you work up a sweat.
Cucumber juice which is refreshing and a natural diuretic.
Watermelon juice because it has been found to help reduce sore post workout muscles.

Which juice will reduce belly fat?

Juicing can be a good thing, but if your goal is to lose your belly fat, you may want to stick with fresh juices that are lower in sugar. That means creating fresh juice recipes that are heavy on the vegetables and light on the fruit.

Good low-sugar vegetables for juicing include cucumbers, spinach, celery and kale. Also, try to limit the amount you drink to one 8-ounce glass a day.

Or you can make a veggie-focused smoothie to get the benefits of both the juice and the fiber as you’ll see below.

Is it Okay to Drink Green Juice Everyday?

Most of us don’t eat enough fresh fruits and vegetables. Drinking a green juice every day is an easy way to replenish the nutrients your immune system needs.

Juicing for Weight Loss with Dr. Oz’s Green Drink Notes

I used the recipe for Dr. Oz’s Green Drink Juice from JuiceRecipes.com, which is made in a juicer instead of a blender. I guess my taste buds are adjusting to the flavor of these healthy concoctions because I genuinely liked this green juice drink. I thought it was well balanced. Not too sweet and Not “too green” if you know what I mean. Score another one for Dr. Oz.

If you are new to juicing, you may find this too “swampy” “earthy” tasting. If you do, try adding an extra apple or two or some pineapple to sweeten it up. Or try something a little more gentle, like this Beginner’s Juice.

Instead of peeling the lemon and lime and running it through the juicer, I just squeezed it in at the end.

Can You Make Dr Oz Green Drink in a Blender instead of a Juicer?

Yes, you can make Dr. Oz Green drink in a blender so it is more like a smoothie, as this video demonstrates. One benefit of green smoothies is the extra dietary fiber they provide.

In a high powered blender such as a Vitamix blend together the following healthy foods in this specific order:

1-½ cups filtered water
¼ cup parsley
2 apples, cored and chopped
1 cup of spinach
½ cup chopped cucumber
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
½ inch of peeled fresh ginger
2 celery stalks, cut into chunks
1-½ cups ice
