10 Simple yet Healthy Juice Detox Recipes for Beginners
Making all natural juices at home is both fun and exciting, not to mention delicious and incredibly healthy. With all the buzz about the questionable and chemical filled store bought foods, it can be pretty complicated to find your way around a supermarket anymore, with all the adds encouraging you to eat more and more of these foods that have sugar, trans-fats, and artificial this, artificial that. Before you know it, those nasty free radicals and toxins begin building up in your body, endangering your health.
You can do something about it, however. Detox your body naturally with organic fruit and veggie juices that you can make at home. Check out our list of the top 7 easy detox recipes that even newbies can do on their own.
Please note that in every recipe, we are assuming that you are using organic fruits and veggies.
This is a very simple mix that is perfect for beginners. Simple place a few slices of fresh, organic ginger, one organic carrot, and a half an organic apple (any variety) into your blender or juicer, and enjoy! This juice is very sweet, especially if the apple is a sweet variety but it’s a perfect way to get started.
This combination of almonds (find out almonds benefits) and sweet potatoes is more than enough to supplement your body with all the potassium and daily allowance of protein your body needs all in one glass. Place one apple, half an orange, a handful of almonds (about 20) and half of a sweet potato in your juicer. This is a great juice for when you are feeling extra tired.
Your body must have iron for healthy blood cell production, among other things and this is a great juice just for that. Place one Granny Smith apple, a dozen or so green grapes, and one cucumber (be sure to include the peel) in your juicer for a great juice full of iron and vitamin K, both of which are important for your blood.
For those hot summer days, this is a super cool and refreshing smoothie. Place two peeled kiwi fruit, half a peeled grapefruit, and one peeled orange. Add a dash of cinnamon for a truly unique flavor twist. This juice will provide you with plenty of vitamins and will give your immune system a boost.
This juice has plenty of B vitamins, vitamin A, C, and E, as well as lutein. To say the least, this juice is a powerhouse of goodness. Add one pear (whichever kind you like), one apple (any variety you favor) and one cup of pitted Bing cherries and mix them in your juicer or blender. This is such a sweet yet energizing drink, you will find yourself making it again and again.
The more antioxidants the better when it comes to detox drinks and this juice has plenty of those. Mix one peeled and pitted mango, one cup of blueberries, and a half dozen medium sized strawberries and blend. This one tastes so good after a hard workout; you can almost feel it filling up your body with its energy and goodness.
If you find yourself constantly fatigued, this juice will help with that. It will help to keep your body hydrated, which is important, especially in the summer months. Add half a glass (about 4 ounces) of coconut milk with one pitted peach, and several lychees. You can add a teaspoon of raw honey if you find this isn’t quite sweet enough for you.
This is a super powerful way to cleanse the blood and is also super nutritious.
In your juicer or blender, mix about 3 small apples, cored, with 3 small beets. Add 1 cup of organic blackberries, either fresh or frozen, and a ½ piece of fresh ginger, peeled.
This recipe is probably different than many you have tried, if you are a beginner, but once you get used to drinking dandelion leaves, you will find that you love them and miss them if they aren’t a part of your smoothie.
In your juicer or blender, mix about 2 cups of strawberries with one cup of dandelion leaves. Add 8 ounces of raspberries, either fresh or frozen, along with a bit of raw honey or stevia, if you find the drink a bit too tart for your taste.
This is a great smoothie to drink in the mornings as it’s easy on your stomach and can remove any buildup of toxins that may have occurred overnight. This juice is a real eye opener with an incredible taste you won’t get tired of.
In your juicer or blender, mix 1 ripe, medium sized papaya, peeled, seeded and sliced along with 1 half a medium sized pineapple, also peeled, cored, and sliced. Add a one inch piece of freshly peeled ginger, one medium sized, peeled kiwi. Mix these well, then add 1.5 cups of coconut water, and stir.
