Weekend Detox Juice

This is one of my favorite juice recipes. The ingredients are simple and the juice itself very tasty and effective. 

As the metabolism slows down during the cold season I find it important to detoxify more often than during summer. A detox weekend at least once a month works miracles.

Root vegetables are in abundance right now and they are my primary choice for this effective detox juice. 

  • 1 pound carrots (orange, purple, yellow)
  • 2 large pieces of fresh ginger root (thumb size or bigger)
  • 1 large piece of fresh turmeric root (thumb size or bigger)
  • 2 large beets (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp virgin olive oil 

  • Wash and clean the ingredients. Peel if necessary. 
  • Pass all the vegetable through the juicer. Add olive oil and stir well.
  • Pour the juice into glasses and sip slowly. Enjoy in good company!

Tip: This is my basic detox juice. To make the detox less monotonous you can make variations of it by changing the proportions of ingredients used and adding other ingredients. You can add
  • beets
  • parsnips
  • horse radish root 
  • purple onions
  • garlic
  • hot peppers
  • lemons
  • blueberries
  • tart apples
  • fresh cranberries
  • and herbs such as parsley and cilantro. 

Use organic ingredients whenever you can. Drink this juice a few times a day instead of your regular meals and remember to drink a lot of water. Rest as much as you can.

After two or three days of juicing you will end up with a lot of juice pulp. Use it to make crackers, patties, soups, smoothies and deserts. For suggestions please click here.
