Juice Cleanse Recipes

Happy New Year everyone! It’s time to get back at it!

Setting my sights on a fresh start to the year, I stumbled across a local juicing company offering various juice cleanse products. It sounded like a awesome complement to my diet…until I saw the price! Yikes!

Don’t get me wrong I think the products these juice companies make are amazing, fresh and full of all the goodness but the price of those fancy glass bottles are not in my wheelhouse. So, having a juicer that’s been collecting dust for a few months I figured the more cost effective method was to put a little elbow grease into squeezin’ my own. You’ll find a few of my own versions of juice cleanse recipes below.

Juicing

I don’t recommend using juices to replace what you’d normally eat when it comes to fruit and veggies but as an addition to your diet it can be healthy boost for your overall health. Choose juices that are lower in sugar which are generally more vegetable based and in terms of a serving I like to add 1/2 – 1 cup with meals.

You will need a juicing machine to to make the juice cleanse recipes below. We love our Breville juicer as it does allow for some of the fibrous components to remain in the juice (love me some fiber!) but there are many other great options too. Makes sure you wash all your produce carefully and then prepare your fruits and veggies as per the juicer’s instructions.

The juices made below are best consumed within 24 hours of making but will last 2-3 days in the fridge.

Jumpstart Green Juice

I like this one for first thing in the morning. The kick of the cayenne is a little odd when you first get up but it certainly gets you revved for the day!

Makes 2 cups

  • 1 apple
  • 2 field cucumber
  • 1 lemon (make sure you cut the peel off first as it will make the juice bitter)
  • 1” fresh ginger 
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
