My Favorite Green Juice Recipe: Bizzie Gold

Bizzie Gold is the founder of Buti Yoga, a sexy workout method that melds yoga, tribal dance, and plyometrics and is taught at studios and gyms around the world, with a home base in Santa Monica.

Buti does including booty shaking, as the name might suggest. But Gold swears the name has nothing to do with the derriere. “It’s a very primal feminine movement,” she says. In the Indian language Marathi, it means, “a cure for something hidden beneath the surface.”

And Gold knows something about cures. As former competitive skier who faced a career-ending injury and later a Lupus diagnosis, the healing she found through creating Buti and nourishing food for herself inspired her to expand her wellness focus to include nutritional consulting, meal plans, and, most recently, a line of protein powders and bars called Golden Ratio.

Gold uses the powders in her daily green smoothies, like this “sweet and dessert-y” one, below, which is filled with antioxidant-packed ingredients and protein for a post-Buti boost. Here’s how to mix one up. —Jamie McKillop
