I got a new juicer! In celebration of the height of the season- when everything is in bloom and there’s a rainbow abundance of fresh, colorful fruits and veggies- I decided to do 21 days of freakin’-awesome juices and smoothies. I have so many recipes that are hands down delicious that I’m going to make, drink and share here.
Join me? I invite you to drink a fresh, delicious juice or smoothie everyday for 21 days and see how you feel. I’ve enabled comments so you can share your progress and recipes.
P.S. Cleansing doesn’t have to be about what you take away, it can be about what health-affirming goodness you add to your life!
Liver-Kidney Detox Juice
yields about 16oz
1 small beet
1/2 large cuc
1/2 inch ginger
2 celery stalks
Run all ingredients through your juicer. Enjoy!
Confession: My taste buds don’t get down with celery juice. It’s got a strong taste that I find overpowers many juices. It works really well in this recipe because the sweetness of fresh beets masks celery’s salty flavor.
Some benefits: Celery is a diuretic that supports our kidneys to remove toxins. Beet juice cleanses our blood and is a good source of vitamins and minerals. Carrots are good for our eyes and skin.
