Searching For The Best Tasting Detox Cleanse Recipes

There are plenty of good options on the market.  Buying a cleanse or detox can be a convenient and easy way to get things moving in the right direction.

Simply open a bottle, or mix up a shake and you're ready to go. What could be better?

Well, how about making your own detox drink right in your kitchen?  You can save a lot of money and it's not much more difficult that using a shake mix. Now I am all for investing in your health. But if I can make something that tastes even better, and I get to keep more of my hard-earned money at the same time. For me, that's a win-win situation.

There are plenty of cleanse detox recipes out there, but not all created equal.  That’s why I spent some time tracking down the best tasting ones to share with you.

What Type of Cleanse Should You Do?

Let's face it, there are a ton of options out there.  There is juice cleanses, smoothie cleanses , weight loss cleanses, and even food cleanses.

Then there are cleanses that focus on a specific part of your body, like a liver or colon, cleanse.

Any of these could be a good option for you depending on your goals.  If you are just starting out with detoxing I recommend you start with a mild general body cleanse.

It is a good way to try out cleansing, and see how it works for you.

So what does that look like?

I would start the day off with a juice, and then a smoothie for lunch, followed by a healthy clean eating dinner. If you want to step things up a level you could also take some liver or colon supplement sin the morning as well. This more of a suggestion for people who have done a detox before and know what it is all about.

If you follow this plan, you could easily do a 3-7 day cleanse and see some good results.

On to the detox cleanse recipes.

The Recipes

Breakfast

Morning Cleansing Juice-Sweet Coalescence

  • ​1 green apple (cored)
  • 1 large handful of strawberries (you can use any berries you like)
  • 1 lemon (rind removed)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 inch small piece of ginger root
  • Put everything in your juicer.
  • Dilute with water and you should end up with a 16-ounce glass.

Apples are a great source of fiber, and potassium, as well as vitamins A and C.  Fresh berries are an excellent source of vitamin A, B-complex, C, and E, as well as health promoting antioxidants.  Lemon is a good source of vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium, and is a known detoxifier.  Ginger helps with inflammation and stimulates digestion.

Beet Apple and Blackberry Juice

  • 3 small beets
  • 2-3 apples (cored)
  • 8 oz. blackberries
  • 1/2 inch fresh ginger
  • Put everything in your juicer and you are good to go.

Beets are full of folate, potassium, iron, and vitamin C.

Ultimate Green Juice

This one is a little more intense, but it is a great option if you are looking for a green juice to try.

  • 1 bunch celery
  • 4-5 kale leaves
  • 1 green apple (cored)
  • 1 big handful of flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1 lime
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 inch of fresh ginger
  • Again just throw everything in your juicer and go.

Celery is loaded with potassium, folic acid, magnesium, calcium, and amino acids.

Lunch

Blueberry Smoothie

Best-detox-recipes
  • 1 c skim milk
  • 1 c frozen unsweetened blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp cold-pressed organic flaxseed oil
  • Blend the milk and berries together until nice and smooth.
  • Then stir in the flaxseed oil for a dose of healthy fats to keep you full.

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

This one is my favorite, I LOVE peanut butter.

  • ½ c fat-free milk
  • ½ c fat-free plain yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp creamy natural unsalted peanut butter
  • ¼ very ripe banana
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 4 ice cubes
  • ​Blend until smooth

Bananas are a good source of potassium, and the peanut butter adds some healthy fat, and a little fiber to keep you full longer.

Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie

  • ½ c skim or soy milk
  • 6 oz (80-calorie) vanilla yogurt
  • ¼ c chocolate chips
  • 1 c fresh raspberries
  • One handful of ice OR 1 cup frozen raspberries

Raspberries are a good source of vitamin C, and they are high in fiber.

The key to good weight loss cleanse recipes is healthy amounts of protein and fiber.  This will keep you full longer between meals.  These recipes won’t let you down.

Dinner

For dinner, I recommend you eat a nice green salad with some form of protein, like chicken or fish. You can also have some more fruit or other vegetables as well.

Final Thoughts

Although I listed these as breakfast and lunch options, you can mix and match as you want. You can also experiment with different berries or other ingredients. See if you find a new combination you like even better.

Remember to drink plenty of water to ensure proper hydration, and get the most out of your cleanse.

There are all kinds of natural detox cleanse recipes out there, but these are some of my favorites.  I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
