These high fiber vegetables are easily pulverized with a good power blender – but not to worry, try our tips on making this recipe with a regular blender as well. 🙂

Carrots are very beneficial to the body when it comes to detoxification. Carrot juice detoxifies the liver, blood, and intestinal tract while also balancing pH. Carrot juice also supports the adrenal glands, thereby boosting your immune system and regulating the endocrine system.

Carrot juice alkalizes the bloodstream, allowing the blood to absorb nutrients properly and deliver minerals and vitamins where needed, which will re-energize a body deficient in fresh whole foods. Raw carrots also give live enzymes and raw fiber to relieve chronic constipation and prevent colitis.

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 with elimination 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.

Turmeric is another detoxifying spice that cleans out the liver. It has been shown to prevent cancer and slow or stop tumor growth. It can also treat psoriasis.

In traditional Chinese medicine, turmeric is also used to treat depression. It is also a natural painkiller and anti-inflammatory that can be helpful to those with autoimmune and inflammatory issues as well as those with joint pain or chronic headaches.

Pineapple contains an enzyme called bromelain that aids in digestion and cleans the blood while also helping in the breakdown of protein.

Pineapple is also anti-inflammatory, so this juice is particularly great for those with arthritis or joint pain. Pineapple also contains manganese, which serves to regulate blood glucose and boost your immune system alongside the plentiful amounts of Vitamin C.

Clementines 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.

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

  1. Hi Tarashaun,
    This detox juice looks interesting. I am diabetic and noticed that it has 31 grams of sugar. Is this something I should be drinking?

      Hi Karen! Thanks for pointing this out – we updated our recipe plugin and the transferring of nutritional info wasn’t seamless. :-/ I’ve adjusted it to show you what 1 cup is. Usually you will drink half of what you make, so it will be 2-3 cups for 1 serving for this detox juice. Since it includes a lot of fiber it will help slow the sugar absorption substantially. That’s why blended juices are much better for you than extracted juices. That said, you should still consult your healthcare professional before trying this or my free 1 day juice detox.

    1. Hi Christina! We recommend only putting into your blender what you would put into your mouth, soooo go ahead and peel those oranges! We will try to note it in the future. Happy Blending!

    1. Hi Christina – Yes, we do! I’ve heard that some people include the rind (as it is healthy?), but we tried it and it’s unbearably not-yummy, so we don’t want to put you through that. Let us know what you think of it!

    Hi Ashleigh and WELCOME to Blender Babes! Coconut water offers up some additional sugars, minerals, nutrients, and flavor – you will definitely need the calories, too, to make sure you’re not hungry and deprived! We definitely highly recommend coconut water for that reason and because it will make everything a little bit more delicious! You could try it just with filtered water but will likely need to drink more. 🙂 Hope that helps!

    Wasn’t a great fan of the turmeric here but it was still drinkable. I would definitely try it again but maybe with a tad less and perhaps a better apple than the little red one i added.

    Amaze Balls! So great to start the day with this drink! Refreshing, tastes great and very filling. If you aren't used to Tumeric it takes a little getting used to but then its great.
