Dr. Oz’s Green Drink: Dr. Oz has become a very trusted name in health and wellness, and his green drink is one of his most famous recipes in the industry. It combines the benefits of greens and fruits and is a great way to start the day.  If you’re not used to drinking your veggies, you may want to start off adding a little extra fruit to make the drink a little sweeter.

Iced Tangerine Mint Green Tea: The benefits of green tea have been well known for a while now, but green tea has a pretty strong flavor, and if you don’t like it, it’s tough to drink.  Well this recipe will deliver the benefits of green tea while not tasting like, well straight up green tea.
