Juice cleanses have gained tremendous popularity in the past several years, and for good reason. They’re a great way to feel lighter and healthier quickly, and to jumpstart healthier eating after a period of overindulging. As with any major change to your diet, check with your doctor before starting a juice cleanse.

Ingredients to Include

  1. Légumes

    Detox drinks and juice smoothies can be made with an endless variety of ingredients, but it’s generally best to include more vegetables than fruits to keep the natural sugars to a minimum.

  2. Beets

    Elles contiennent des antioxydants qui favorisent la perte de poids et apportent au jus une teinte rosée éclatante et revigorante. Essayez ce smoothie à la betterave, à la pomme et au gingembre.

  3. Celery

    Celery gives subtle vegetable flavor, and naturally cleanses the digestive system of uric acid.

  4. Ginger

    Il aide à réduire les gaz intestinaux et favorise la digestion des aliments gras. Essayez ce jus au gingembre et aux légumes verts.

  5. Apples

    Riches en fibres, elles stimulent le système immunitaire et contribuent au nettoyage du système digestif. Essayez ce jus de pomme, carotte, gingembre et fenouil.

  6. Cayenne Pepper

    Adding a pinch of cayenne to juice drinks acts as a circulatory stimulant, detoxifier, and supports weight loss.

Try Using Nut Milks

Many cleanses also include nut milks, which can be more filling than juices. Homemade nut milks are easy to make in your Vitamix blender, and taste much better than store-bought varieties. See Almond Milk for the recipe, and have fun experimenting with different types of nuts.
