A Green Juicing Recipe to Cleanse Your Body

Here is an awesome green juicing recipe from Leann Vogel of the Healthful Pursuit blog.The benefits of juicing ingredients like kale, cucumber and pear are huge!

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.

Detox Juicing Recipes for Better Health

We absolutely love how juicing truly impacts people for the better at Best Juicing Recipe! So, when we came across this post about juice cleanses from Gaby Dalkin (What’s Gaby Cooking) we had to share it with you.

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!

Benefits of Using Cayenne in Juicing Recipes

If you’re looking for a great root vegetable juicing recipe, then this is it! The saying “Drink your Roots!” couldn’t be more true in this juicing recipe from Leanne Vogel who blogs at Healthful Pursuit.

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.

Like Leanne, I too never thought to include sweet potato in my recipes for juicing at home.

  • 1 medium beetroot, washed and quartered
  • 5 large carrots, washed
  • 1 medium sweet potato, washed, peeled and quartered

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.

The Benefits of Cucumber in Juicing Recipes

We pick back up on our journey through the benefits of juicing various fruits and veggies today with the cucumber. I always grew up thinking cucumber was a veggie, much like tomatoes, but it’s technically a fruit! This cylindrical vine fruit is a great addition to many great juicing recipes, so let’s take a look at why.

The Benefits of Cucumber

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.

Heart Health
Cucumbers contain sterols, which some studies show may help your heart by reducing bad cholesterol levels. That makes cucumbers an important ingredient in heart healthy juicing recipes!

Brain Health
According to Louise Tremblay, Cucumber juice also provides a source of copper, which helps your body produce  neurotransmitters, the family of chemicals your brain cells need to communicate. I wouldn’t be able to write this post without these important neurotransmitters!

In addition, cucumbers make great additions to juicing recipes for weight loss because of the high water volume and low caloric value.

Sking Brightening, Immune Boosting Juice [Joyous Health]

Skin Brightening, Immune Boosting Juicing Recipe
Credit: Joyous Health

The name says it all! This healthy juicing recipe is chock full of great ingredients that will leave your body feeling goooood! As always, Joy McCarthy (of Joyous Health) provides some great insights before she dishes out her juicing recipes, so we too wanted to give you her insights first.

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.

Skin Brightening, Immune Boosting Juice

  • 2 carrots
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 2 thumb size chunks of fresh ginger root
  • Half lemon (remove the peel of non-organic)
  • 1 lime (same comment as above)
  • 1 apple (remove the core)
