Healthy Juicing Recipes // Juice Cleanse

These 7 Healthy Juicing Recipes will help boost your energy, detox your body and aid with weight loss.

I’m going to preface this post by saying I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist and I don’t claim to know how each individual will react to a juice cleanse. I’m also going to say that you don’t even need to do a juice cleanse with the juicing recipes that I’m going to provide you with. You can simply choose to add one or two of these juices to your diet each day to help boost your energy and nutrition. That’s what I tend to do. I enjoy one of these juices along with a celery juice since I’m one of those people who tends not to eat my veggies nearly as much as I should.

Which Juicer to Buy?

  • I use this Breville Cold Juicer at home. It’s easy to clean and fairly quiet. If you’re looking for a more affordable juicer, this one gets great reviews.

If you would like to do a juice cleanse, these healthy juicing recipes are just what you need to get started. 

I have done a few juice cleanses over the past couple years. My first two were done with juices that I purchased from a local juice producer here in Portland. But you know what? It’s super expensive. So, I finally invested in a juicer and learned that it’s super easy and just as delicious (if not more) to make create your own healthy juicing recipes at home.

During a typical juice cleanse, I’ll drink 6 glasses of juice a day and plenty of water. I’ve also found it helpful to supplement my juice cleanse with some homemade bone broth that I make in the slow cooker or instant pot, just because I find myself craving something warm, especially during the cooler months. Hot tea is another option to add on to your juice cleanse.

You can also supplement your juice cleanse with this Weight Loss Soup that can be made in the instant pot or on the stove.

Here’s what a typical day of a juice cleanse looks like:

  • 8am – Celery Juice + Water
  • 10am – Carrot Ginger Juice + Water
  • 12pm – Green Juice + Bone Broth + Water
  • 2pm – Beet Juice + Water
  • 4pm – Green Juice + Water
  • 6pm – Grapefruit Mint Juice + Water
  • 8pm – Bone Broth + Water

I like to purchase my fruits and vegetables on Sunday and prep them all. Then, during the week, I like to prepare the individual juices each day, for optimal freshness. It’s said that juice is at its peak nutrition when you consume it within 15-minutes of being prepared, but 24-hours is great too. In fact, these juices will keep for up to three days in the refrigerator.

How Many Days Should You Juice Cleanse?

1 Day – This is great for beginners and perfect to give your body a reset after a particularly indulgent weekend.

3 Days – A three-day juice cleanse will help eliminate toxins, boost energy, stimulate weight loss and benefit your immune system. This is the duration that I generally stick with.

5-7 Days – Need an extra nutritional boost. Try a five to seven day cleanse to further eliminate toxins. It’s particularly useful in times of high stress.

What Should I Eat After a Juice Cleanse?

After a juice cleanse, you should aim to slowly introduce your body to normal food. Start with lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and be sure to drink plenty of water. Then, I like to introduce healthy grains like quinoa or farro, and light proteins like fish and chicken.

    All those juices look like a rainbow 🙂 I haven’t done a full on juice cleanse but when I used to start my morning off with a green juice I always felt like it gave me a boost for the day!

    These photos are just gorgeous!! I’m a big fan of fruit and veggie smoothies but I haven’t experimented much with juicing- I’ll have to try your recipes.

    I have done both at home and purchased juice cleanses. It’s so much cheaper to do a DIY one at home but sometimes you just need the convenience of bottles. Green juice #2 is my jam though – so good.

    I think it’s time for me to get a juicer! I find myself using my blender, then straining some of the tough fibers, which is a total pain! And the amount I spend on store-bought juices (which run $4-$7) could pay for a juicer by the end of the year. Thanks for all the great tips and inspiration!

    I’ve just started following your recipe, and noticed turmeric stains like mad! Do they stain all the plastic part of your juicer too? I’m on my 2nd cup (did celery and carrot ginger just now)… and I’m really not used to it. It’s a bit gross.. the rawness taste… how long will it take for me to overcome it? I feel a bit nauseated lol..

  8. Confused on servings! The recipe for 1x is one whole day for one person?
    So if I want to do 3 days with my hubby I need to do the recipe 6x?

  10. There is no such thing as “bone broth”! What you’re all spending tons of money on is called STOCK. Stock is a liquid made from slowly simmering(barely) the BONES of am animal (usually beef, chicken, veal, or fish) for anywhere from 2-12 hours. A broth on the other hand is made from the MEAT of an animal. So once again BONE BROTH doesn’t exist.
