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. 蔬菜

    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

    甜菜富含大量的抗氧化物,有助減輕體重,更能增添果汁飲品愉悅可人的粉紅顏色。試試這道甜菜蘋果生薑果昔。

  3. Celery

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

  4. Ginger

    薑有助減少腸道內氣體,幫助消化油膩食物。試試這道薑綠色果汁。

  5. Apples

    蘋果含豐富纖維,能增強體內免疫系統,對消化系統的清潔也很有助益。試試這道蘋果、紅蘿蔔、薑和茴香汁。

  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.
