We are well into day 3 on our 5 day juice detox and I wanted to share some of our favorite juicing recipes.  Here are just a few of our favorites.

~Sarah

The Green Cucumber

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 large cup of spinach
  • 1 large cup of parsley
  • 1 celery stock
  • 1/2 medium lemon, peeled

Pink Delight

  • 8 ounces watermelon
  • 4 ounces strawberries (if frozen thaw first)
  • 4 ounces raspberries (if frozen thaw first)

*Pink Delight is best when made in a blender and then strained before drinking

    I tried several of the juices, loved them all! Being raw the past 3 months, I have even created some of my own lol!

  2. Ageha says:

    I have a question.

    I’m assuming you’re using a juicer to make these juices but since I don’t have access to one at the moment, will a smoothie blender suffice?

    Thanks much :)

    • Sarah says:

      Yes, a smoothie blender will work just fine but I recommend that if you are doing this as a juice detox then you’ll want to strain the juice through a fine mesh strainer before drinking.

  4. Yolanda Scott says:

    I am feeling GREAT! and that was my goal as I transition to raw. Thank you for assisting me on my journey

  5. Melissa says:

    Hi! How is this detox suppose to be taken? On an empty stomach? Mornings only? All day for 5 days?

    Thank you,
    Melissa

  6. britney says:

    hi, im soooo excited to try these recipes! but im not really a veggy person, and are they good or like taste? and how long do i have to do this for?
    thanks for the recipes!

    • Sarah says:

      Hi Britney,

      If you’re not a big veggie person then I would start with a greater fruit to veggie ratio and work you way to adding in more veggies. There is no set time frame for how long you have to do a juice detox. You can do a one day cleanse or any combination you’d like. There are no rules so go with what feels best to you. Good luck!

    Hi, I’m starting a juice detox soon (once my juicer arrives), but I’m worried I won’t like the vegatable juices. I like raw veggies, but I’m not a veggie lover. I do love fruit thiugh. Do you have any recipe suggestions to hide the veggie taste a little, until I get used to it?

    Thanks,

    Steph

  8. Bonny says:

    I just finished a week of juicing and feel wonderful. The first few days were a little tough and I had a couple of slips but finished with no problems and felt satisfied. I used Jason Vale’s 7 day juicing plan http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-391368/Start-juicing-lose-7lb-7-days and recipes http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-391391/7lbs-7-days-seven-day-recipe-planner
    I came here for some variety and am enjoying juicing a couple of times a day in addition to my meals. Thanks!

    Hi. Can’t wait to try all these lovely juices. How many days do you do it for?? And do u just have juice or can you eat food as well?? Does it matter which juice u have when. New to this and want to try it out I’ve heard good results from juice detoxing.

    Hi there,
    Looking for the best possible way to detox and came across your fab and user friendly website, thank you.
    Just looking at the above mentioned recepies for detox, how would you start your detox? Would you have one of the above three times a day – breakfast, lunch and supper? Your response would be appreciated. Never done this before – tks Paula

    • Sarah says:

      Hi Paula,

      For me personally I started the day out with a simple green juice mix (spinach, kale, apples, carrots and a cucumber). For lunch I would do a more fruit based juice (usually a mix of fruits with some kale or spinach thrown in). Dinner was usually a more veggie based juice and for snacks (if I was feeling hungry) I would have an apple, lemon, cucumber juice – very refreshing! I also made sure to drink plenty of water. Just remember that there is no wrong way to do this. Find your favorite juices and go with it – you can mix and match or just stick with one that you like best. Good luck!

  12. Brooke says:

    Thanks so much for this! I too have a blender and will get a strainer to try this. I was wondering if I can throw the veggies in the blender as well? Also do I need to add water as it may be too dry to mix everything?

    • Sarah says:

      Hi Brooke,

      When I used a blender to make my juices I would add in a small amount of apple juice to help things get blended. I personally needed a bit of sweetness and water just wouldn’t cut it. You can easily juice just veggies or a combo of fruit/veg in the blender to make your juices – just add in a bit of liquid to get things moving.

  13. Lizeth says:

    Can I also have protein shakes while doing the juice detox?

    • Sarah says:

      Hi Lizeth,

      Strictly speaking – no. The juice detox is meant to help give your system a break and protein shakes are MUCH harder on your system than pure fruit/vegetable juice. If you are worried about your protein needs during a juice detox remember that not only do ALL fruits and vegetables contain protein (elephants do just fine on a plant based diet) but also that the requirement the FDA sets forth for protein needs is VERY high and considered unhealthy by many prominent doctors.

      Good luck on your detox.

    mandy

    • Sarah says:

      Hi Mandy,

      You can drink as much as you need on a juice detox. If you are hungry – have a drink! I think one of the most important things a juice detox teaches you is how to listen to your body. Don’t try to schedule times to have a drink. Try listening to when your body is hungry, learn to recognize the clues your body gives you so that you know when you are hungry.

      Good luck!

      ~Sarah
