In years of classes with my beloved teacher, the Master of Kundalini Yoga, Yogi Bhajan, he encouraged us drink or eat certain healing items everyday to feel young, light and healthy. To name a few, Chlorophyll, Rice Bran Syrup, Turmeric, Almonds, Almond Oil, Pomegranate Juice, Yogi Tea, Sesame Oil, Whey and Yogurt (with live cultures and homemade being the best). This recipe includes those healing ingredients and a few others. This is not his recipe or idea to combine all of these ingredients at once. His recipes were geared toward specific health goals. It is, however, an amazing healthful drink designed for everyday. It is called "Dr. Yogis Green Drink" because you become your own Dr. Yogi when you combine, drink and benefit from it. This cleansing, nutritious and enjoyable green drink ignites your vitality and youth with energy until noon. There is NO blending, adding fruit or juicing necessary. It’s easy to stir, pour, add some quick items, shake and go with this natural breakfast drink. It fills you up, cleans you out and picks you up all at the same time. The ingredients have numerous benefits for your whole body. You can read about them below by clicking the links near the ingredients.

You'll mix your Base Liquid once a week (Sunday is perfect) and keep in the frig to use that week. You are mixing enough Base Liquid for a week's worth of healthy shakes. This drink can last up to two to three weeks in your frig depending on what liquid you use ie. soy, rice or almond milk, or tea, juice. This makes it convenient if you miss a day or even a few days. Start up again the next morning or carry over what you have stored in your frig to the next week. It’s best to drink it at room temperature, if possible. It's a good idea to pack a banana or healthy snack in case you get hungry before lunchtime.

Equipment Needed:

A Tupperware pitcher or pouring container with lid approx. 84 oz or two liter container with tight fitting lid, a good whisk, and measuring utensils, 16oz shake cup with lid (click here to see one type), spice or coffee grinder for almonds (nice but not necessary).

Add the following ingredients to your approx. 84oz or two liter container:
