Doing a detox can be difficult mentally and physically for some of us. The lack of energy and the detox symptoms that occur in the first few days can be very challenging.
This is why we encourage you to add 2 to 4 juices per day during our cleansing program. This will provide you with additional nutrients and it will increase your energy level. On this page, you will find our favorite detox juice recipes.
You can consume all the juices on this page, even if you are not following our 7 day detox and colon cleanse program. They are a great addition to your healthy diet.
Having daily juices allows you to get more nutrients than you normally do from eating your three meals per day. Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are packed with healthy sugars and essential micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) that will nourish every cell in your body.
You can prepare juices in advance if you have a busy schedule. But make sure to keep them in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.
You will need a juicer to make our detox juice recipes…
Our favourite is the Omega masticating juicer. Its low speed protects enzymes and prevents oxidation. It is a great juicer to have at home. You can also make nut butter with it, purees, plant-based milk, and even grind spices and herbs.
We hope that you’ll enjoy our detox juice recipes… Make sure to let us know what ones you liked most!
Lemon Water should be drunk first thing in the morning (after tongue scraping). Remember, you are detoxing. Your body needs a lot of water to eliminate all the toxic build-ups.
This morning ritual will rehydrate you after a long night of sleep. It will also support your lymphatic system and your digestive system.
This takes a minute to make, and a few more minutes to drink. Take your time, there is no rush…
Usually, this provokes a bowel movement. Although, you are on detox… So unless you are on the first or second day of the program, don’t expect any action in that area!

- 1 liter of warm water (or room temperature)
- The juice of 1 lemon

Wash and peel your ingredients, get the juicer and press start! (You can substitute any of these veggies in the recipes below)

Your liver’s main function is to detox your body. He is like a big filter! Even if its job is to detox, it still needs a little help from you…
The best way to detoxify the liver is to boost its detoxifying enzymes with a very potent phytonutrient found in broccoli (Sulforaphane). Juicing this vegetable might not sound appealing to you but… don’t run away yet… you can mix it with something else! Yes!
If you want to stick to green juices, then it might be a bit bitter. Choose a green apple as a sweetener. You can dilute it with 1 or 2 cucumbers.
If you need more sweetness, use carrot, pineapple or red apples.
Be creative. You can’t really make a mistake when you’re juicing. If it’s too bitter or sour, then just add something sweet… If it’s too sweet, add a vegetable or dilute it with water. It’s that simple!
Along with your liver, your kidneys are part of the filtering system of your body. They are extremely important.
If your kidneys don’t work properly, metabolic waste will accumulate in your blood. This will provoke weakness and shortness of breath, and later, kidney failure.
When your kidneys fail, your body starts to fail too. The toxic substances that they would normally filter will pass through and accumulate in your blood…
Your kidneys filter 150 liters of blood per day to produce your urine. So you should take good care of them!
The best juice to support your kidneys has to contain alkaline-forming and water-rich vegetables. Choose organic products…You do not want to add a toxic load (pesticides) into your body as you detox.
You can prepare this inexpensive drink in large quantity in the morning and sip it throughout the day.
Kidney detox juice recipe (in a slow juicer):
- 2 stalks of celery
- 2 cucumbers
- The juice of ½ lemon
Turmeric root is a powerful tool to have at home! Detox or not, you should use turmeric every day.
The health benefits from consuming turmeric come from the yellow pigment called curcumin…
Turmeric helps reduce inflammation in the body, boost the immune system and prevent DNA damage. According to the National Cancer Institute, it may also help prevent and stop cancer growth.
To learn more about the health benefits of turmeric, visit this page.
So buy some turmeric roots at the market and start juicing! Be careful though, because it stains! You can juice it all at once and keep it in a bottle in the refrigerator.
Drink it with a splash of lime or lemon for the taste, or dilute it in fresh orange juice…

All herbal teas are great during the detox. They will give you a little bit of comfort and will be a change from plain water…
Ginger tea is a good choice for cleansing, detoxifying, and for its anti-inflammatory properties. It will support your digestive system and help you to detoxify your body.
Ginger is also a powerful anti-nausea, something you might need during the your detox. When you fast, your body produces ketone bodies, which are know to provoke nausea. Additionally, the toxins that are released for elimination might also cause nausea…
Slice 1 knob of ginger, pour hot water on it and let it sit for 5 minutes. You can drink many of those teas during the day.
Having a broth is very comforting and it’s a nice way to have dinner with your family when you are not actually eating.
Ask your partner to prepare it for you if you are not able to cook and see food. It’s totally normal to have cravings and not wanting to prepare food when you are fasting.)
To make a broth, boil all your favorite vegetables for 1 hour. Eg: carrot, squash, sweet potato, onion, cabbage, kale, etc.
Minerals and other nutrients will be lost in the cooking water, providing you more nutrition during the fast. You may add sea salt or Himalayan salt if you’d like (for the taste and for more minerals).
Have you ever noticed trays of grass growing on the counter at a juice bar? That is wheatgrass, a very trendy and healthy remedy. It is considered to be the healthiest of all grasses, very rich in vitamin A, B, C and B-17, a forgotten vitamin that would have the ability to selectively destroy cancer cells. It is also a good source of essential minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, sodium, sulfur, zinc and cobalt. A complete source of protein, rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients, 2 ounces of wheatgrass juice is as nutritious as 5 pounds of vegetables. The chlorophyll contained in the juice oxygenates the blood, cleans it and heals it. Drink up!
To grow wheatgrass at home, you will need:
- Organic Hard wheat
- Natural soil
- Spring Water
- 2 Trays (one with little holes in the bottom)
How to grow wheatgrass
- Soak 1 cup of hard wheat seeds overnight
- In the morning, rinse the seeds
- Fill the tray without holes with about 1 inch of soil
- Spread the seeds on the soil
- Water it and cover with the other tray with holes, upside down. keep in the dark for 3 days

- If you have mold problems, increase the air circulation with a fan
- Average growing time is 7 to 12 days. Keep the cut grass in a container in the fridge for 1 week. To grow again, use new seeds and soil
