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. Verdura

    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

    Le barbabietole forniscono una sferzata di antiossidanti in grado di promuovere la perdita di peso e donano ai succhi un vivace colore rosa dall’effetto rinvigorente. Prova questo Smoothie di barbabietola, mela e zenzero.

  3. Celery

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

  4. Ginger

    Lo zenzero contribuisce alla riduzione dei gas intestinali e alla digestione dei cibi grassi. Prova questo Succo verde allo zenzero.

  5. Apples

    Le mele sono ricche di fibra, ottime per stimolare il sistema immunitario e contribuiscono a pulire l'apparato digerente. Prova questo Succo di mela, carota, zenzero e finocchio.

  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.
