JUICE DETOX DRINK 3 ~ I AM SWEET

I AM SWEET is juice detox drink 3 or Lunch drink recipe in our FREE JUICE DETOX. This is a lightly flavored green juice recipe that even the little ones will enjoy. If kiwi is not in season or hard to come by, just substitute for one small green apple (about 1/2 cup) plus the juice of half a lemon. You can use 2 cups of spinach or kale OR you can use 1 cup spinach and 1 cup kale.

This anti-inflammatory whole green juice recipe is easily made with your Blendtec or Vitamix high powered blender – but we have tested this in a regular blender as well. 🙂

KIWI HEALTH BENEFITS

Kiwi fruits are rich in many Vitamins, flavonoids and minerals. In particular, they contain a high amount of Vitamin C (more than oranges), as much potassium as bananas and a good amount of beta-carotene.

CUCUMBER HEALTH BENEFITS

Cucumbers have amazing anti-inflammatory qualities that can reduce swelling, as well as soothe and soften skin tissue. They are also an excellent source of silica, a trace mineral that strengthens the skin’s connective tissue.

Cucumbers will alkalize, cleanse the skin, and release toxins from the body, all while providing the body with hydration, as cucumbers are mostly water! Silica in cucumbers will keep your hair and nails strong, refresh and heal the gums and mouth, and lower uric acid levels in the body, which will keep your kidneys in shape.

Cucumbers are also packed with vitamins A, B, and C, which will make you feel radiant and energetic while protecting your immune system. Magnesium, potassium, and silicone all combine to heal and refresh the skin, your largest organ, as well as your body!

BANANA HEALTH BENEFITS

Bananas give us an instant surge of energy, while keeping blood pressure under control. Bananas are rich in potassium, calcium, and magnesium, as well as soluble fibers, which help to lower cholesterol.

Bananas are also rich in fructooligosaccharide, a probiotic that helps your body absorb nutrients and assisting with digestion. Bananas will relieve diarrhea, as they regulate fluid balance, alleviate constipation, and improve bowel function.

Bananas also have high levels of iron, amino acids, and antacids, all of which help your body prevent allergies, alleviate heartburn, recover from hangovers, and help you to lose or gain weight, depending on how you combine your foods. They are very easy to digest and will promote healthy skin, scalp, and hair.

PINEAPPLE HEALTH BENEFITS

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 toregulate blood glucose and boost your immune system alongside the plentiful amounts of Vitamin C.

KALE HEALTH BENEFITS

Plant-based nutrition expert Dr. Joel Fuhrman lists kale as the most nutritious food in existence, and recommends regular consumption of kale, especially in juice form, to achieve optimal nutrition.

Kale is an excellent source of vitamins A and C and manganese. It is also a very good source of dietary fiber, copper, calcium, vitamin B6, and potassium. Kale is known as a superfood because it contains ALL nine amino acids required to make protein in the body, alongside nine non-essential aminos.

It also has more omega-3 than omega-6, a rarity in nature that is optimal to supplement the average modern diet that is deficient in omega-3s as well as other micronutrients that kale provides.


Some people have argued that raw spinach is not healthy, since there’s a compound in spinach called oxalic acid, which blocks the absorption of calcium and iron and can be easily cooked out of spinach.

An easy way to solve this problem is to pair spinach with a food high in vitamin C, like pineapple.

This juice detox drink is specially combined to ensure maximum vitamin absorption for your health, so there’s no need to worry about raw spinach!  Spinach is packed with Vitamin K, which protects bone health and prevents osteoporosis. Spinach also improves digestion and the health of your skin.

PLEASE NOTE: Spinach grows unprotected by a rind or peel, so it is particularly vulnerable to pesticides and other agricultural chemicals, landing it on the ‘Dirty Dozen’ list. If you can find and afford organic spinach, it is highly recommended!

    About to start the juice cleanse but have a question regarding all the juice recipes. If I make the larger 5 cup portion will it remain drinkable through the week?

    1. Leslie Williams

      Hi Melissa and WELCOME to Blender Babes! The juice will get yucky after about 24 hours, so we don’t recommend saving it for longer than that unless you want to freeze it. Freeze into ice cubes and then add water and blend if you do want to keep it for later in the week. Happy Blending!

    My favorite detox juice!!! I used 1 cup of each spinach and kale, and am so happy my grocery store had yummy ripe kiwis! I use a Ninja 1500.
