JUICE DETOX DRINK 5 – I AM GREAT-FULL

I AM GREAT-FULL is the fifth or Dinner detox drink recipe in our FREE 1 DAY JUICE DETOX. This dinner time juice is extra filling due to both sweet potatoes (cooked or raw, we prefer cooked for better flavor) and apples, and the ingredients will help regulate your blood glucose levels throughout the night and provide sustained energy, preventing too much spiking since this delicious juice detox drink does contain dates for a natural sweetener! 🙂

This whole blended juice recipe is easily made with a good power blender – but not to worry, we have tested and you can make this recipe with a regular blender as well. 🙂

GRAPES

Grapes are a wonderful addition to a detox regimen because they contain procyanidolic oligomers (PCOs), antioxidants that contribute color, juiciness, and flavor to grapes. Therefore, dark red or purple grapes are the best for detoxification. These antioxidants target toxins and free radicals and neutralize them. Resveratrol in grapes aids with weight loss, as it causes fat cells to diminish at a very high rate, reduces cells’ ability to store fat, allows blood vessels to dilate and thereby lowers blood pressure and gets more oxygen to the body. Grapes reduce heart attacks and aid in weight loss!

ORANGES

Oranges are abundant in soluble fiber, potassium, and vitamin C, which serve to lower cholesterol levels, improve heart function, and lower your risk of heart disease.

The Blender Cleanse

Potassium will work with other vitamins found in oranges including magnesium, calcium, and sodium, to maintain fluid levels at a cellular level. Oranges are also rich in carotenoid compounds that help protect the eyes, absorb light, and improve vision.

APPLES

The phytonutrients in apples help to regulate blood sugar by breaking down complex carbohydrates into simple sugars that are easy for your body to digest.

Apples help withelimination and weight loss due to a high level of pectin, which is a type of soluble fiber. Pectin lowers blood fat, making apples a heart-healthy addition to any juice.

SWEET POTATOES

Sweet potatoes are super-healthy, unlike their white potato cousins! They are packed with antioxidants that reduce toxicity in the body as well as inflammation, so those experiencing joint or arthritis pain will find some relief. They are also high in Vitamins C and A, which are immune-boosting.

Your body will process the glucose in sweet potatoes slowly, as they have a low glycemic index and will help your body experience only a slight rise in blood glucose levels with sustained energy, which will help you to feel full and satisfied after drinking this juice at dinner time!

GINGER

Ginger does wonder for digestion and will detoxify your gastrointestinal tract in a variety of ways. For one, ginger improves nutrient absorption by stimulating gastric and pancreatic enzyme secretion and relieves stomachaches, pain, and inflammation. Ginger is powerful: regular consumption of ginger slows the growth of colorectal cancer cells!

DATES

Dates are easily digested sources of dietary fiber, copper, vitamins A, K, and B6, magnesium, manganese, niacin, and riboflavin, which help keep eyes, skin, mouth, and lungs healthy while also warding off cancer.

Dates help your body to break down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats while providing lots of carbohydrates to keep your body going throughout the day and night.

CINNAMON

Cinnamon regulates blood sugar and improves blood glucose control. Just half a teaspoon of cinnamon every day can significantly reduce blood sugar levels, triglycerides, bad cholesterol, and total cholesterol levels in diabetics.

Cinnamon also  improves digestionrelieves congestion, and can reduce inflammation, including relieving pain and stiffness in joints due to arthritis.

  1. I am planning on trying the juice cleanse, but have an issue with sweet potato. What would you suggest as a substitute with the I am Great Full dinner juice?

    1. Hey Lori! Yes I hope you join us! 🙂 I would suggest subbing the sweet potato with squash such as butternut. If you don’t like squash you could try carrots. Otherwise you can replace this with another dairy free smoothie you enjoy!

    This is definitely the thickest and most filling of the 6 detox juices … It lives up to its name!!! More pulp than the other ones too , however. I think my Ninja 1500 just couldn’t handle the grape skins. Husband says it tastes like Christmas! 🙂
