Everyone Needs a Great Cleanse Recipe
After a weekend full of going overboard on food and drinks, we all could use a great juice cleanse recipe. It happens to the best of us. After all, it would be a sin to not take advantage of every morsel at the best French restaurant in town! And a relaxing day at the pool is just not as fun without a margarita or two. Then of course, chips and dip must accompany any sort of Mexican cocktail! It’s all fun and games until Sunday night comes and we start to feel the effects of it all. Bloating, headaches and an overall sense of blah. I don’t know about you, but I am extremely conscious of what I eat and drink during the week so that when the weekend comes, I feel comfortable letting go a little bit! That is why I always start Mondays off with a blast of nutrition to rescue my depleted cells! Okay, I’m exaggerating a bit – weekends aren’t that unhealthy, but compared to my regular routine, they are. My body certainly feels the change.
If this sounds at all like you, you’ll appreciate the goodness a whole juice like this brings. It’s packed with vitamin C, omega-3s and antioxidants to rev up your body to prepare for another week.
Health Benefits of Ginger and Juicing
For all those mommas out there who are pregnant and feeling nauseated – try this recipe. Know anyone going through chemo, pass this one along. And dare I say it, anyone hungover – make this juice for them. Research has shown that ginger is a safe remedy to reduce nausea symptoms.
Whole fruit and veggie juicing is a healthy way to incorporate more fiber, vitamins, minerals, and disease fighting compounds into your daily routine. Replacing this juice for a meal will do wonders for your health and waistline.
By consistently replacing your typical breakfast or lunch with a whole juice, you will see dramatic weight loss.
This juice is 170 calories, has 8g fiber, a bit of protein and enough carbohydrate to fuel your brain. If you are interested in incorporating more juices into your routine, sign-up for our newsletter to be notified of the upcoming safe 24-hour detox to jump-start your weight loss journey.

Invest in a High-Speed Blender
All of the juice recipes here require a high-speed blender/nutrient extractor. If you try to make this juice in a conventional blender, you will be highly disappointed and to be honest, grossed out. The small investment of $90 will be well worth it. Trust me, you will use it waaaay more than you ever thought you would. Plus, keeping it on the counter will remind you how easy it is to throw some healthy ingredients in the cup to make a breakfast, lunch or snack that is so much healthier for you than what you were going to grab. The Magic Bullet NutriBullet 12-Piece High-Speed Blender/Mixer System is what I have sitting on my counter…I’m certainly a satisfied customer.
If you’re looking for an extra boost, my absolute favorite superfood is from Boku. Yes I am an affiliate, but only because it’s the only one I buy. Full of organic barley grass juice, organic nopal cactus, organic kale, spinach and spirulina, it’s a powerful punch of superfood in a glass. (Yes, I do get excited every time I add it to my drink.) I LOVE it. Add a scoop to this or any juice or smoothie to amplify the nutritional benefits.

- Peel and grate ginger.
- Add the orange, ginger and the rest of the ingredients to your high-speed blender.
