Dr. Oz Detox Cleanse Lunch Smoothie

Day 2 – Dr. Oz Detox Cleanse {VIDEO}

Hi all! Here’s a little update for you on my cleanse. It’s day 2 of the Dr. Oz Detox Cleanse and I’m feeling pretty good. Yesterday I had a hard time getting all of the lunch smoothie down, it is HUGE! I was getting a little irritable when I got home after the gym and before the dinner drink but I wasn’t overly hungry I think I was just feeling a bit cranky! My energy levels are up and I slept really well last night. So far, so good! Like I promised here is another vlog on the lunch smoothie…

    Great vlogs! These are actually making me want to try this detox! But I see why you did it on a weekend…can’t really blend anything at work for the lunch one! Have you ever pre-made a smoothie and had it a few hours later? I don’t like smoothies too much to begin with, but I feel they are something to be had right away…? ps – Love the outtakes ahaha

      Thanks!!! I thought I’d try the vlog approach. I wasn’t sure how it would go but it was fun!! So as far as pre-blending, yes that can be iffy…usually it will start to separate which can be a bit nasty. If it is in a container with a lid it should be ok because you can shake it up. But I have read that you should consume them right away. I usually have one every morning for breakfast, it’s fast, filling, and I can drink it while I get ready for work 🙂
      Yeah, there is always going to be outtakes in my videos…lol!!!

    What are your thoughts on Greek yogurt in smoothies? That has a pretty good protein punch as far as yogurts go! My breakfast is usually Greek yogurt with berries (and I now add the Holy Crap cereal I got from the g-free event I attended a couple weeks ago). But if I start making smoothies, I’m thinking I could implement the yogurt. (My hope is that it will take away the smoothie-consistency I don’t really like and instead make the drink creamier like an ice cream — only it’s NOT ice cream, so WIN!! lol)

      Yes, yes!! Greek yogurt is great in a smoothie 🙂 would make it smooth and creamy and definitely adds a good amount of protein

      Oh and if you look under my “recipes” there are other smoothie recipes with yogurt. Just sub in Greek for the soy yogurt 😉

    So I love the idea of this detox but I’m am unfortuanlly unable to eat anything with coconut in it, I was wondering I could substitute the coconut oil with something or if it was okay to leaving it out altogether

      Hi Courtney! You can definitely omit the coconut oil. And any smoothie that calls for coconut water you can just use regular water 😉
