Dr. Oz Popcorn and Banana Smoothie Recipes, With Oprah

Dr. Oz Popcorn and Banana Smoothie Recipes

Today Dr. Oz had on the one and only Oprah Winfrey to talk about her life after her daily television talk show.  One of the segments featured Dr. Oz sharing two recipes (Popcorn and Banana smoothie recipe) that looked absolutely delicious.  Both of which will be added to my book of healthy recipes. In case you missed the episode or weren't able to jot down the ingredients and instructions, here they are listed below.

Healthy Blueberry and Banana Smoothie Recipe

Fruit smoothies are a delicious and healthy way to treat yourself during the course of your day.  Dr. Oz has added some ingredients for added protein and fiber benefits!

Blueberry and Banana Smoothie Recipe

1/2 banana
Dr. Oz, Blueberry and Banana Smoothie Recipe1/3 cup soy protein
1/2 tablespoon of pure honey
1/4 cup of frozen blueberries
1/2 tablespoon of flaxseed oil
1 teaspoon of psyllium husks (this is what metamucil is made of and can be used in this recipe)
8 ounces of water

So instead of reaching for that unhealthy snack, make yourself a blueberry and banana smoothie that is full of antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.  Make 2012 the year you take back your health!

Healthy Popcorn Recipe

Ingredients and Directions
  • 1/4 cup of popcorn
  • 1 brown bag
  • pour the cup of popcorn into the bag
  • Fold over the top of the bag
  • Microwave for 2 minutes until popping slows to a near stop (microwave times will vary according to the strength of the microwave).
  • Spray some cooking spray into the bag to help the spices stick to the popcorn
  • Add spices (Dr. Oz suggested using cinnamon or garlic salt for added flavor)
Buttered popcorn that you buy from the store is loaded with unhealthy fats.  This is a great alternative way to enjoy popcorn in a healthier fashion.
