1 ruby red grapefruit
1 stalk of celery
4 large kale leaves
Fresh as a Daisy
2 cups of alfalfa sprout
1 bunch of parsley
*NOTE: It’s important to remember that just drinking these juices without proper exercise and other dietary supplements can be dangerous, so consult a local professional nutritionist before going on a complete juice cleanse.
Kale is loaded with Vitamins A and C, potassium, iron and fiber which helps your body process foods properly. Cucumber is great in many juicing recipes because it hydrates your body and helps your body fight off bad cholesterol levels. Pears are great for detox juicing recipes because they are high in fiber and help your digestive system process toxins.
North Pole Green Juice
3 leaves kale
40 grams fresh mint
If you have a ‘low’ setting on your juicer, begin with the softer items first – cucumber, kale and mint. Then turn to ‘high’ and juice the apple and pear.
Here are some of Gaby’s thoughts on how to prepare for a juice cleanse:
I usually juice for about 5-6 days. 2 years ago when I first started, it was a 3 day juice cleanse. Which really means 9 days… because there is a 3 day pre cleanse and 3 day post cleanse schedule that I follow. That means, in the 3 days leading up to the cleanse, I cut out basically everything except fruits and veggies. I eat lots of loaded salads with different veggies, drink boat loads of tea, and obscene amounts of water to prepare myself.
So once I’ve got the 3 days of pre-cleansing under my belt, it’s time to hop into the juicing stage.
Some great thoughts for anyone considering this difficult, but rewarding endeavor. Now to the great detox juicing recipes that Gaby created!

Here are some of her thoughts on juicing sweet potatoes:
Juicing a sweet potato has never really been up there on my priorities list because, well, I didn’t even know juicing a sweet potato was even possible. But wouldn’t you know it, it is possible and it’s pretty darn healthy, too. Paired with the beets and carrots to sweeten things up, and this is one heck of a cleansing juice recipe if I do say so myself.

The benefits of juicing sweet potatoes and carrots is all about the beta carotene, which gives them their orange color and converts to Vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for healthy immune systems, skin, and vision.
Loaded with Vitamin K Adding cucumber to your recipes for juicing at home is great for getting Vitamin K, which is essential for the development of strong bones. In addition, Vitamin K nourishes your kidneys and acts as a blood coagulant which helps prevent lots of blood loss due to injury or in surgery.

Before I share my juice recipe, I want to remind you that if you juice as well, always make sure it’s 80% vegetables and about 20% fruit. Otherwise if it’s all fruit, it’s going to be far too high on the glycemic index – meaning, it will spike your blood sugar levels too quickly.
A great insight, something that we strive for in all of our recipes for juicing! This juice will truly brighten up your skin and boost your immune fighting white blood cells.
