Flatter tummy. Better, radiant skin. Mental clarity and a boost of energy — all distinct signs (and benefits!) of a toxin-free system. After days, weeks, or months of indulging in fatty, processed foods and being exposed to polluted air, your body can accumulate so many toxins that it not only makes you feel sluggish and old, but it could also weaken your immune system. What should you do?

 

Get a blender, and get rid of harmful toxins from your body by trying out fresh, delicious, and nutrient-packed juices that detox your system. You can come up with any number of combinations using fruits, vegetables, nuts, and fiber sources. Here are three great and tasty detox juice recipes to help you get started.Great Detox Juice Recipes - Veggies zoom v2

 

1. The Detox Breakfast Drink

This powerful super juice recipe was created by Dr. Mehmet Oz, a cardiothoracic surgeon and TV personality, and it is meant for a three-day detox.

  • 1 banana

  • 1 tbsp of almond butter

2. The Anti-ageing Detox Drink

The best part about doing detox juice recipes — aside from drinking really good juices — is that you can use them to counteract the effects of old age. This particular recipe is packed with antioxidants, courtesy of berries, which have anti-ageing properties.

 

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup of fresh (or frozen, then thawed) blueberries
  • 1 cup of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups of peeled and coarsely chopped mango
  • ¼ cup of water.

 

Mix all ingredients in the blender. Strain and thin with additional water. Pour. Garnish, if preferred. Drink and feel rejuvenated.

 

3. The Cold-busting Detox Drink

Finally, with cold weather reaching polar levels in many places, increasing energy bills and sending your immune system into total meltdown, you’re going to need this vitamin-packed detox drink to thwart colds.

 

What you’ll need:
