It is fun and exciting to prepare home-made natural juices that are, if not delicious, at least incredibly healthy for your organism.
With all the fuzz around the store-bought foods, it is pretty much complicated to find your way out of this improper environment, where you are encouraged to consume all those foods with additives, added sugars, carbohydrates and fats. Thus, toxins and free radicals start flowing freely through your body, endangering your health at a great deal and banishing your positive mood.
But do not stand there watching them destroying your well-being! If you are a real fan of fruits or vegetables and you want to go through a complete detoxification of your body, here are 7 simple and healthy juice detox recipes to prepare at home.
- Few slices of ginger
- One carrot
- One beet
- Half an apple
Who says you cannot combine apples and root vegetables? Take your blender or juicer, then mix a few slices of ginger, one carrot, beet and half an apple together, then enjoy your drink. This delicious juice has a pretty sweet taste due to the carrot, but it might become somehow sour due to the apple. With only 155 calories, this juice is great for beginners!
A combination between sweet potatoes and almonds is enough to supplement your organism with the necessary potassium and protein daily allowances, which will balance your fluids and electrolytes. You only need an apple, half an orange, almonds and half a sweet potato to prepare this juice – mix these ingredients together and you will obtain a complete refueler for the days when you feel tired.
- One apple
- Half an orange
- Few almonds (it’s better to soak almonds in water for few hours before)
- Half a sweet potato
Winter has arrived and cold is accompanying it, so you need to take some additional precautions in order to prevent an eventual infestation. You can prepare yourself a delicious and very healthy juice by mixing kiwis, grapefruit and oranges together, along with a pinch of cinnamon, for a unique taste. This will boost your immune system and will provide you with plenty of vitamins at the same time.
- Pinch of cinnamon
If tiredness and sleepiness cause you troubles, the most appropriate way to avoid them is preparing a natural juice with peaches, lychees in syrup and coconut water. Apart from being an excellent source of energy, this juice will also keep your body perfectly hydrated, which is a plus particularly during the winter, when your organisms needs fluids. You should mix only half a glass of coconut milk with one peach and as many lychees in syrup as you want, adding a teaspoon of honey for a better taste.
- One Peach
- Lychees in syrup (as many as you wish)
- Half a glass of coconut milk
- One teaspoon of honey (optional)
Bear in mind that you will need plenty of antioxidants in order to detoxify your organism, so a detox home-made juice will be the most suited choice. You will need one mango, a glass of blueberries and three or four middle-sized strawberries in order to prepare this juice. Mix these ingredients together then enjoy your natural and tasty drink! If you plan to go to your workout session, you may use it after you finish, to boost your nutritional values and keep your body slim.
- One mango
- Glass of blueberries
- 3 or 4 middle-sized strawberries
Vitamins are also important when it comes to detoxification, so just take a swig of this vitamin-packed juice and show some care for your health. With only 192 calories, this juice combines pears, apples and cherries, which will create an excellent-tasting drink that will make you feel better than ever. This juice contains vitamin A, B complex, C and E, as well as lutein, which promotes strong bones and can fight aging, so you get triple benefits in only one single drink.
- One Pear
- One Apple

Iron is the key for a healthy organism, so you will need it included in your diet, too. Prepare a great detox juice with kale, Granny Smith apple, green grapes and cucumber and you will simply start feeling excellent. This juice is rich in vitamin K, which helps many of your organs function correctly.

Most of does fruit can’t be found in nigeria
I’ve never been in Nigeria but what I checked there are a lot of fruits you can use for juices. Like pineapple, watermelon, apple, mango, banana, papaya, annona, orange, coconut, etc. Such delicious juices you can do with these! Remember, you can combine these with vegetables too. Maybe I didn’t give many recipes in my site yet but I’ll consider it. Meantime you can try different variations. Thanks.
Are the vegetables cooked or raw, ie the beets, sweet potato erc. Thanks
Thank you for your interest! You actually bring up a very valuable point. Yes, sure, all vegetables here (beets, sweet potatos, etc) are raw and not cooked in these specific recipes. Mostly we use raw vegetables in juicing because they have much more vitamins and minerals than after heat processing. But, of course, there are vegetables that should not be eaten raw like cruciferous vegetables (arugula, broccoli, kale, cauliflower, cabbage, turnip, collard greens, bok choy, brussels sprouts, radish, rutabaga, and watercress). These should be cooked or as minimum deeped into some hot water to blanch before eating or juicing. They contain chemicals that block the production of thyroid hormone in your body. As you may ask, many of these vegetables are commonly included in salads and juices in raw form. An occasional arugula salad or cup of coleslaw is not going to do harm to most folks, but it would be wise not to make a habit of eating or drinking any of these vegetables in raw form. Blanching won’t clean all the pecticides out because they go deep inside the vegetables but it will cleanse the surface along with cleaning inside the florets. For more information you can read here.
How to drink them all (7 recipes)?are they should drink 1 by 1 each day ,week or what..thanks
We don’t recommend drinking all 7 drinks at once.
We recommend spacing them one per day. This way, you won’t overwhelm your system.
We also recommend rotating through the different drinks. Each of them contains many different nutrients and you want as many various nutrients as possible. The more varied the nutrition, the healthier the person.
Also, rotating through will allow your body the chance to clear out any built up over abundance. For example, too much carrot will cause an orange tinge to the skin. By rotating through the drinks, your body has the chance to clear any excesses.
Finally, we want you to take it slow while going through a detox. It can be dangerous to detox too fast. Going slow and using one drink per day allows you to clear out without becoming sick.
Hi, you mean coconut water or coconut milk??
You are right, I have mistakenly mentioned coconut milk and coconut water in the same recipe referring to the same product. I initially had coconut water in mind. Coconut milk is actually a mix of coconut water with coconut meat. It is also reach in vitamins and minerals but has more calories in it. For the goal of detoxification I believe it is better to stick with coconut water. However this recipe with coconut milk can also produce a very tasty result.
For how many time I should drink the detox juice in a single day and how many days?
If you decide to go on a juice detox fast, then it is important to make sure you drink enough liquids during the day. Approximately 1 to 3 liters of juice each day, that is besides other liquids ( like water or tea). You should not force it though, drink only as much juice as you feel your body needs. It is also important to drink different juices during the day to ensure you get all the required nutrients into your system. You can browse our website for different juice recipes.
Some people go on short juice fasts, that last 1 to 4 days, every once in a while. Others, however, are able to fast for longer than a week. If it is your first attempt at juice fasting I would recommend starting with a 1 day juicing fast.
For beginners, going straight to juicing fast might be too difficult. Incorporating detox juices with normal food might be a better idea. Drinking fresh detox juice for breakfast is a detox solution many individuals made part of their everyday diet.
Are all these juices equipped for detoxing the body? This will be my first doing one of these and I am just wondering any tips or ideas you can give me!! Thanks so much 🙂
Since it is your first try at juice fasting, I would recommend you start with a short fast period. I would start with 1 day juicing fast and see how it goes. If you feel well after it, then perhaps you can fast for one more day. Make sure you drink enough liquids during the fast. You should drink different fresh juices during your fast to make sure you get all the required vitamins and minerals. You can use the recipes on this post or browse our website for a bigger variety of juicing recipes.
Is it necessary for you to fast for the drinks to have effect?
Juice fast is a method of cleaning your body from toxins. Drinking fresh juices while fasting helps supplying healthy nutrients to your body. By drinking fresh juices you provide your body with the vitamins and minerals in the amounts it is hard to get any other way. Juice fast is not the only way to enjoy the benefits of juicing. Drinking fresh juice every morning also does great to your health and helps with the detox process.
I’m 79 years I did not make juice in home for Weight loss but for my daily breakfast
My combination of apples ,berry ,pineapple ,orange ,peach ,grape and mix with milk
and same with water is this a good combination or what is good for me I mention
that I’m in a good health . Thank you Alex
Thank you for your question. I am happy to hear you are in good shape. Juicing on daily basis will only contribute to your overall health. I would recommend mixing the fruits with vegetables to lower the sugar levels and get more health benefits out of your juice. I also believe that drinking the juice as is, without mixing it with milk is the best way to go.
As far for the fruits you are using I believe those offer tremendous health benefits and are great for juicing. Grapes are great antioxidants – help protecting the brain from aging and lower the risks of developing heart problems. Apples are great for heart health, brain health and digestion. Pineapples strengthen the bones; reduce the risks of high blood pressure, great for digestion, great for the skin and our immune system. Oranges are flooded with vitamin C which works as an antioxidant. Oranges protect our body from diseases, inflammation and early aging. There are researches showing that orange juice can improve memory as well. Peach juice is good for kidneys, eyes, digestion and cardiovascular health. Berries have enormous amount of health benefits. Those might prevent Parkinson’s disease, help with diabetes and more. What type of berries you are using? Blackberry juice can reduce goat problems. Cranberries fight urine infections. Maintaining mental sharpness is only one of the many benefits of blueberries.
Good and simple to juice veggies I would suggest you incorporate into your juices are:
Beets – are good for digestion, reduce blood pressure, good for the skin, cure inflammation , help with constipation and have many more health benefits you can read about here.
Celery is probably one of the most nutritious vegetables. It has lots of anti cancer properties, lowers bad cholesterol, helps digestion and more ( all about the benefits of juicing celery here)
Off course there are many other veggies that are great and healthy: carrots, broccoli, kale and more.
Her are some combinations using the ingredients above I would suggest you try:
1 cup of water, strawberries and blueberries (1/2 cup each), 1/2 beet and one leaf of kale.
2 apples and 8 celery stalks + a little bit of cinnamon
If you for some reason prefer to stick with fruits only then proven combinations are:
2 apples + 2 cups of blueberries
1 pear, 1 cup of blackberries, 1/4 pineapple + peppermint leaves.
Hopefully, this answer helped you in some way. Wishing you good health and delicious juicing.
Willa kale , spinach,mango and pineapple juice help me finish the “love handles” and flatten my tummy? 2 are the kales to be raw or cooked?
I’m glad you asked.
Many people are looking for that 1 or 2 foods or supplements that will magically take away the fat. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that.
This juice is healthy, and will provide you with many nutrients. It can replace unhealthy snacks. As part of a diet that focuses on vegetables and healthy meats, eliminating junk food and processed foods, you will see a reduction in your love handles.
You also have to balance the sugars. Mango and pineapple are packed with nutrition, but also with sugar. You should have no more than 8oz of the juice per day. Otherwise, you’ll be taking in too many carbs, which could cause you to gain weight. This is especially true if you are eating breads and pastas, both of which are very unhealthy foods.
We recommend sticking to 1 serving of this juice for a snack. Then, make the rest of your meals 100% vegetables and meats. Add in some exercise and you’ll see your tummy flatten quite quickly and beautiful muscle starts to form up.
As for the raw vs cooked, in these types of juices, raw is better for taste. There isn’t much of a difference nutritionally, but cooked spinach and kale tend to give a rotten, sulfur taste when cooked, then added to a juice.
Hope this helps.
thank you for the great work you are doing it’s have been of great help to me $my grandma
You and your grandmother are welcome! I’m very glad our efforts help.
Dima. wonderful job helping us with your knowledge, special blessing for you.
asking for help on this one- just like taking a bath at the end of your day before you
go to bed to maintain a proper hygiene or cleaning for maintenance. what fruits recipe
you suggest for a daily simple detox, not a heavy detox just something simple at the end
of my day ?
We appreciate the compliment.
When you eat healthy food, all fruits and vegetables will help you detox. The biggest thing is that you don’t want chemicals going in. So, I choose Organics. Or local fruits and vegetables that you know are not sprayed.
It will also help greatly that you eat seasonally. What fruits and vegetables are growing around you throughout the seasons? Eating foods that are in season help your body detox better than any one particular fruit or vegetable all the time.
We don’t have a juicer yet. Need a recommendation? We have never try this. We drink ginger root. My husband is a diabetic and takes pills. They don’t seem to help. I’m wanting to try juicing. Please email me the info. Juicy recipes for diabetes. Thanks.
The best thing about fruits and vegetables is you can eat them whole and still get the health benefits. If you have a blender, you can begin by creating a juice out of the blended fruits and vegetables. And as you work your way up, you can explore the different juicers. We have several articles on this website that will explain the different types of juicers and the different benefits you get. We also have an article on juicing for diabetes with various recipes, so check that out as well. Thank you!
Thank you so much for sharing these I can’t wait to try them
Thank you for your time, Adam! Glad you like our recipes.
I was wondering about the juicing recipes; do you add any liquids such as coconut water or almond milk? Several of the recipes just list the fruits nothing else.
I am using kale from Trader’s Joe’s but I freeze the bag once its opened. Is using the kale frozen good for juicing or not?
These are good questions. Some people do add juice, water, or milk to their juicing recipes in order to smooth out the texture and create more volume. Sometimes, when using frozen food, another liquid is required to get it to process. In the vast majority of cases, adding the liquid does not decrease the nutrient content. You still get all the benefits, just with the easier to drink juice.
Frozen kale is just as healthy for you as fresh kale. If you can get kale from a local farmer, just after it’s been picked, that’ll be better than anything you can purchase in a grocery store. For some of the tougher fruits and vegetables, like kale, many people do freeze it in order to break down some of the fiber content. It helps reduce stringiness in your juice.
Hope it helps.
I have used Detox method and really helpful.
Hi, Prem Ranjan!
I’m very happy for you. You’re welcome!
this blog helps me a lot with my Father who suffers from overweight and
gout. His Doctor says that he should go a detox program. SO i did. My
dad loses weight and cures his gout naturally. I just also use a book
which includes recipe for detox. (http://tinyurl.com/y8ztdtlh). everyone should try it as well. thanks
Congratulations on feeling better to you and to your dad. We are glad we can help you. So many people have told us that they feel better and are healthier because of some of the things we have produced. We’ll also check out the book you mentioned. Thanks!
Thank you for the tips!
I learned a lot.
I Would like to know if it is advisable to drink juice detox every day?
Thanks in advance
This is an interesting question. We’re glad you learned a lot. Small quantities of a detox juice daily can help your body remain healthy. We recommend no more than 8 oz of juice per day if you are doing it on a daily basis. During organized detoxes, the amount can be higher.
