Dr. Oz's Tangerine Weight-Orade

"This is Dr. Oz's recipe for a powerful metabolism-boosting drink. According to Dr. Oz, green tea is shown to boost metabolism 12% by drinking just one cup; tangerine contains a chemical composition that increases sensitivity to insulin and stimulates genes that help to burn fat, and mint is a calorie-free flavor enhancer. Drink 1 pitcher daily for maximum metabolism-boosting results. I believe this can't hurt and can only promote good health. 5/2/13 Again, the recipe is meant to be a metabolism booster and because it's not loaded with sugar or sugar substitutes it will not be a sweetened drink. It's aim is health benefits and hoped it will judged as such."

  1. I made this last night, I chopped the mint (which I will not do again) Tonight I will just put a couple sprigs, so i can remove them the next day. I also took the peel off of the sliced tangerine. I realy liked it!! It was very refreshing! totally making it again tonight!! Looking foward to the results!!
  2. I'm a bit ambivalent about this - I had hoped to really, really like it. It's ok. I know I would like it better if I sweetened it, but that's a bit counterproductive. The tangerine seemed to add a bit of bitterness to the drink - not bad, and I did drink all of it, but not what I was hoping for. I am wondering if it might not work better if I could zest the tangerine, although that might not be so easy to do. I need to get more tangerines to try this again - perhaps I should strain the tangerines out after they sat overnight in the tea? I'll be interested to hear others' experience with this.


I'm just me, mother, grandmother...friend to many and a Louisianian. My Cajun and French Quarter Italian descent afforded me exposure to some of the best of foods. My passions are my family, decorating, cooking and gardening. Those very passions push me into constant awareness with always looking for something new to delight the senses, thus my favorite idiom...Inspire me, puuuullllllleeeeeeease! ...and I mean it, too.
