Fountain of Youth Cocktail Recipe

The Doctors share a recipe for a Fountain of Youth cocktail ... iguana juice! Don’t let the name fool you -- there are no lizard parts in iguana juice.

Ingredients for one 8-oz. glass:

  • 1 oz. nopales (cactus chunks)
  • 1 oz. spinach
  • 1 oz. celery
  • 5 oz. pineapple juice

* It's ideal to use a juicer, not a blender, to make iguana juice. Serve chilled, but without ice.

Nopal cactus fruit: Contains protein antioxidants that help prevent free radical damage as well as help fight chronic inflammation. High amounts of calcium, magnesium and vitamin C help decrease pain and soreness in your joints and muscles, as well as decrease plaque buildup in arteries.

Spinach: An excellent source of dietary fiber, calcium and protein. Helps improve cardiovascular health, prevent cancer, and the harmful oxidation of cholesterol.

Celery: Contains compounds that help lower blood pressure and prevent cancer.

Pineapple juice: Contains high levels of enzymes that fight infection; in addition, pineapple juice can help improve digestive health.
