detox smoothie recipes

The benefits of juicing are fantastic and the more you do it, the better  they’ll  get. However, juicing is not a replacement for your diet.

Make sure that you eat a great diet alongside juicing. It will enhance the benefits even more.

Please note that juicing strips the fiber from fruits and vegetables, so you’ll need to get your fiber from what you eat. Take an apple to work and eat a salad before dinner.

Find ways to ensure you get adequate fiber,  or you’ll likely become constipated, no matter how much you juice.

Experiment with fruits and vegetables. I tend to focus on vegetables for the nutritional value and fruits for their sweetness value.

Use fruits to sweeten up juice that would otherwise be a little on the bland side.

Juicing vs. Smoothies

Juicing treats gives you the vitamins, nutrients and raw enzymes that are easy to digest and that enter your blood stream immediately.

Detox juices give your digestive system a chance to rest, and give your liver time to flush out harmful toxins from food and your environment while still providing adequate nutrients to support the regeneration of cells and organs.

The body can easily consume pounds of vegetables in juice form, which would be very difficult to accomplish while eating whole vegetables with the fiber.

They’re perfect for getting a lot of nutrients on the go, or when cooking veggies isn’t possible.

These detox smoothie recipes provide similar benefits, but retain the fiber from fruits and vegetables. The fiber, along with extra nutritional support in the form of chia seeds, oats, nut butters and other smoothie add-ins, make them a great choice for breakfasts, snacks as a way to refuel after a workout.

 

Juicers & Blenders

juicer

A centrifugal juicer will do the trick for most juice recipes. The produce is fed through a hole and into a chopper. The “puree” is mix at very high speed and strained.

It will come out the  spout and into a pitcher.

For smoothies, you’ll need a high-quality blender that can handle a lot of produce and is easy to clean.

Juice Pulp

The pulp is what’s left over after juice is extracted – it is mostly insoluble fiber.

Pulp is great to add to a compost pile or bin and to the garden.

Just remember that most of the flavor from the veggies and fruit was extracted in the juice, so it won’t be as strong. You can also make vegetable stock, which extracts the last bits of flavor.

Buying & Prepping Produce
pro

Buying organic fruits and vegetables will increase the health benefits of the produce you consume, while minimizing toxins like pesticides. Try finding a local farm or CSA, or join a co-op to reduce the costs of buying organic produce.

Most veggies can be cleaned, cut and prepared a couple days in advance. Make sure you pre-cut celery, carrots

and other items that won’t absorb plenty of  water in a container with cold water to elongate their shelf life. Wait to cut more fragile/quick-to-brown for example tings like apples and cucumbers until right before you juice.  Wash everything thoroughly, too!
