Not only healthy, its absolutely delicious! In fact, I kick start my day with a glass every morning to get my protein, fruit & fibre very quickly. My preference is cranberry juice & frozen blueberries with no ice. All other ingredients are available in large markets, drugstores & health food stores. My only deviation from Dr. Oz's recipe: (1) I don't add 600 mg of fish oil by breaking open supplement capsules (2) the addition of 1/2 cup plain fat free yogurt wasn't in the original recipe.
- 1 cup juice
- 1⁄2 bananas or 3⁄4 cup berries
- 2 tablespoons whey powder
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 1 tablespoon psyllium husks (ground)
- 1 tablespoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon wheat germ
- fish oil, 600 mg (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup plain fat-free yogurt (optional, any flavour)
- 3 ice cubes (optional)
- Combine all ingredients in a blender in order given.
- Whip until frothy.
I look forward to my morning smoothie every day. Wow. I went with the lemon-flavoured fish oil liquid, and it's like a ray of sunshine. Frozen berry blend, fat-free vanilla Activia, ice cubes, apple juice, just a splash of water, and all the rest of the ingredients - the taste is amazing. This drink has got me moving in every single way. Thank you for sharing, CountryLady!
Tastes great...I was very scared when I was making it! Used frozen blueberries and frozen strawberries. Even put the fish oil in and it still tastes awesome!
Loved this - could eat it everyday - I didn't have chia seeds, psyhillium husk or whey - but will go to whole foods to look for these ingredients as it could only make it better! Made this in my new Vita Mix blender. I used cranberry juice and blueberries and did add ice. Thanks.
