These 7 healthy juice cleanse recipes will help boost your energy, detox your body and aid with weight loss. Learn how to make detoxifying green juice + more.
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. But there are loads of health benefits from consuming these healthy juices.
Simply add one or two of these juices to your diet each day to help boost your energy and nutrients. That’s what I tend to do since I’m one of those people who tends not to eat my veggies nearly as much as I should.
If you would like to do a juice cleanse, these healthy juicing recipes are just what you need to get started.
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 slow cooker bone broth or instant pot bone broth, 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.
Sample typical day of a juice cleanse
- 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.
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.

How many days should you juice cleanse?
- 1 Day Cleanse – This is great for beginners and perfect to give your body a reset after a particularly indulgent weekend.
- 3 Day Cleanse – 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 Day Cleanse – 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.
