Dr. Oz ~ Longevity Shake

Dr Oz Shake

The next best thing to the fountain of youth in a foamy consistency and in a unexpected fruit shake form.  This amazing shake will lead to better health, heightened immune systems,  and keep you living longer and the secret ingredient is…

GOJI Berries!  This super nutrient rich berry is known as a super ingredient to many Chinese remedies and have been used by Chinese / Indian herbalists for the past 6000 years as a life enhancer.   Goji berries are rich in antioxidants and in beta-carotene.

What do they taste like?

Goji berries have a mild tangy taste and may be a bit sour and sweet.  The texture most resembles raisins.

Here’s a list of the Goji berry benefits:

  • protects the liver
  • help eyesight
  • improve sexual function and fertility
  • strengthen the legs
  • boost immune function
  • improve circulation
  • promote longevity

    • Should you drink these daily, weekly, etc, for maximum benefit?
      Can you use rice dream instead of almond milk?
      Just bought ALL the ingredients and love the taste!!!!

      • I agree, the taste is great! I could drink them all day.

      • Hey Sharon!

        Here are some Goji berry facts:

        Goji fruits were very widely used by the Lama doctors and the nomadic peoples of Mongolia and Tibet for regular consumption on a daily basis to help promote long lives and good health. Goji berries were eaten daily (drink or not) every morning before they started their days.

        To answer your questions, I would take everything in moderation. Sure the drink tastes great but consuming all those calories can’t be too great for your body. I’d say once a day is enough.

        As for Rice Dream, I’m sure you can add or subtract anything you like to your Goji shake as long as you keep the berries.

        Hope this helps,

  2. how many calories is the longevity shake?

    • 1. The shake is approx. 250 calories
      2. You can purchase dried goji berries at any Chinese herbal store.
      3. MACA Powder can be purchased at specialty health stores or from a good organic food section at your grocery store.
      4. I wouldn’t share your shake with your animal friends just to be safe.
      5. I’d store the shake no longer than a day.

    • You can buy Gogi Berries and Maca Powder at nutsonline.com.

      They are WAY better priced than you will get at a health food store and have tons of other great stuff!

  3. Cool!

    I’m gonna add Goji berries to my regular diet!

    • Hi Richard!

      Why don’t you try also Maca Powder then mixed with flour for making extra healthy baked goods or sprinkled directly onto your meals or add it to your beverages like smoothies.

  4. They look really weird but I’m willing to try. I saw them on the show too!


    Posted by Cindi | September 27, 2009, 10:38 pm
  5. I have one question concerning the longevity shake.

    The recipe calls for a heaping TBL spoon of Maca powder, the label on the bottle that I purchased says the daily dose is 1/2 to 1 tsp. This is a huge difference, why so much Maca powder?


    Posted by Robert | October 30, 2009, 1:17 pm
    • I’ve read that consuming large amounts of Maca powder may have a harsh affect your hormonal system so i would recommend you take the smaller dose that’s directed on your packaging before you go ahead and pour heaps.

      Let us know how it goes.

  6. why does it solidify into a pudding like texture so quick? am i doing something wrong? I am following the recipe and like it but haven’t seen any comments on anyone else having this problem.

  7. Tastes good but why does it solidify into a pudding-like texture so quickly? Just want to make sure this is how it is suppose to do. Kieth

    • If you don’t use so much maca powder it shouldn’t be like that.

      I had the same problem before too!

      Or try adding more almond milk.

      Hope this helps,

      • Does anyone know how much blurberries to use? Don’t know how much a freezer pack is. I buy them in 2 kg bags and I’m sure that’s not what is meant. Thanks for your help

        • The recipe calls for 1/4 cup of blueberries.

          You can add in as many as you like depending on your tastes.

          Hope that helps.

  8. What is Maca Powder

    Posted by Joseph Rennick | January 5, 2010, 10:50 pm
  9. Can you substitute blueberries with strawberries? and almond milk with reg. milk or yogurt? would it still be as effective?

    Posted by nicole | January 9, 2010, 11:16 am
    • Hey Nicole,

      In addition to vitamin C, strawberries also provide an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese, as well as folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, copper, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids

      Blueberries are great but if you prefer the taste of strawberries the shake should be just as good, just make sure you keep the Goji berries and MACA powder.

      Hope that helps.

  10. I do not trust the goji’s from china town

    Posted by JIm | April 11, 2010, 8:13 am
    • It really depends on where you go.

      Great China is amazing and they’ve been around for over 35 years. You have to go in and talk to the herbalist.

  11. Does this shake have to much carbs? 40grams and do carbs make you fat?

    Posted by ricardo | April 12, 2010, 9:07 pm
  12. and why banana ? can i use water instead of milk because i hear the protien in milk destroys antioxidants

  13. I found that Tibet Authentic Goji Berries are the best

    Posted by Tina | July 11, 2010, 12:09 pm
  14. My father is a herbalist and we have been using Goji berries for years! I’ve never had it in shakes before but will definitely give it a try. We usually use the Goji berries in soups and they add a subtle hint of sweetness. It’s wonderful! It’s nice to sprinkle some here and there in stir fried vegies too.

    Posted by Jenna | April 11, 2011, 1:16 am
  15. Oooh.. I didn’t know you could pick up goji berries in Chinatown. Next time I am there, I will have to check them out. 🙂
