We recently received a juicer as a wedding present and I am anxious to explore all the possibilities! Here’s a juice I’ve made several times from Dr. Oz’s 48 hour weekend cleanse.
Kale, Pineapple and Ginger Detox Drink
Ingredients (Makes 4 Servings; Drink Throughout the Day)
1/2 cup pineapple
2 large cucumbers
1 bunch kale without stems (4 cups chopped)
1/2 lemon, squeezed
1/4 inch of ginger
1 bunch of mint (1/2 cup)
Combine all ingredients and blend in juicer.
*If you don’t have a juicer, you can use a high speed blender and squeeze the blend through a nut milk bag. This is the same method used for making almond milk. The bags are the same as fine mesh produce bags or pantyhose. You might need to add a bit more water to the blend to get more juice out.
It has a tangy yet refreshing taste from the lemon and cucumber/mint combo with a sweet finish from the pineapple.
Kris Carr and Dr. Oz enjoying green drinks
Kris Carr of Crazy Sexy Life, discovered the benefits of juicing when diagnosed with stage IV cancer- she had no other alternative treatments available to her. Nearly 10 years later she is feeling better than she ever did even pre-cancer. Check out more of her story and juicing recipes in her e-guide.
Here are just a few benefits of juicing that Kris mentions:
“Say hello to boundless energy, glowing skin, clear eyes, improved digestion and exceptional health and happiness. Say goodbye to toxins, excess weight, sugar cravings, addictions, premature aging and a lackluster appearance.”
The proof is in the juice!
