1. Green Machine Juice
This beautiful green juice is a great way to get a daily dose of greens in an instant! Green juice is beneficial to cleanse the body for weight loss, promote vibrant skin, increases hydration, energy, reduce hypertension and flush away toxins!
For use in a blender I like to add coconut water for improving the blending and also for potassium and extra hydration.
2. Celery Juice for Weight Loss
This is a bonus green juice because drinking celery juice first thing before other foods is one of the most energizing beverages you can drink and it promotes weight loss big-time. Celery stimulates digestion and speeds up the metabolism. Each stalk also contains less calories in it than it takes the body to break down to fibers. Since juicing removes the fibers in fruits and vegetables, the body instantly works to absorb the nutrients.
The nutrients in celery work to prevent cardiovascular diseases by reducing glucose, blood lipids, and blood pressure. Celery also helps with jaundice, liver disease, urinary tract obstruction, rheumatic disorders, gout, bronchitis, asthma, chronic skin disorders, vomiting, fever, tumors, anti-inflammatory properties, antifungal, antibacterial, and collects free radicals that live in the body.

3. Cinnamon Ginger Carrot Juice
Let’s just call this the vision and anti-inflammatory juice. Because it is a lovely carrot juice recipe that supports vision and provides anti-inflammatory properties.
Carrot root are made up of rich nutrients that contain phytochemicals which have powerful health benefits including carotenoids, vitamins, and fiber and is also rich in minerals, and antioxidants. All of these improve and reduce inflammation, digestion disorders, and contain higher nutrition [source].
The addition of cinnamon and ginger reduce inflammation and support arthritis which is just a bonus of this vision improving drink!
4. Detox Beet Juice
A vibrant magenta colored drink that works to support healthy blood flow and cleanse the blood. There is no magic tool for detoxing as the body naturally is able to detox through the liver. It happens at night as we sleep, which is the time the body repairs cells and organs. But sometimes we need a little detoxification boost to the blood and organs and drinking beet juice supports that.
This healthy and easy homemade beet juice recipe comes together quickly with ingredients that detox for a body cleanse, blood cleanse, to help with weight loss, improve skin, lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation, protects liver damage, provides anti-cancer properties and increase energy [source]!
5. Pineapple Orange Juice
The combination of orange and pineapple fresh pressed juice is beyond delicious! This wonderful homemade juice is a refreshing way to boost the immune system and start the day!
Oranges and pineapple are loaded with water, fiber, and vitamin C, which helps to flush away toxins from the body and boost the immune system. Juicing the fruit is a great way to get all those nutrients!
Health benefits of a juice cleanse
The results that are experienced from a juice cleanse are:
recharged liver function
stronger immune system
cardiovascular disease prevention
Can you lose weight juicing?
Yes you bet your waistline you can! Juicing to lose weight is very common, as it stimulates digestion to rev-up the metabolism, the recipes are usually low fat, and the body easily absorbs nutrients quicker than having to digest fibers. These natural weight loss drinks should be consumed in intermediate fasting or in a 3-5 day juice cleanse max. That is enough time for your body to start healing and see weight loss results. You can also do a 1 day body cleanse to start a reset on the body and see how you do.
What are the best fruits and vegetables to use for juicing?
DO EAT FRESH:
- dark leafy greens such as kale, spinach, chard, cilantro, parsley, basil, mint
- lettuce like romaine leaves
- citrus including lemon, lime, grapefruit, oranges
- ginger root
- turmeric root
Which blenders should I use?
Personally I love a high powered Vitamix. The quality is epic and phenomenally worth the investment. The comparison is very noticeably different from when using a standard blender to a Vitamix blender. And there are different price options to choose from. Next, if using a blender you will need to strain the fibers from the fruits and vegetables so I suggest using this mesh or nut bag.
Which juicers should I use?
Tips for juicing
Process the bulk fruits and vegetables that are hearty like apples, pears, fresh ginger, and carrots, to name a few, first. Then add in the leafy greens and herbs such as lettuce and parsley. To finish, end with watery fruits and vegetables such as cucumbers and watermelon which “flush out” the juicer.
