Introducing the King of All Detoxes – The Mega Detox Recipe!
If you’re an avid reader of our website, you’re most likely aware of how many detox juices we’ve already tackled. While all of them are great, effective, and helpful, this one is the father or the king of them all.
The combination of beets, cabbage, spinach, and pineapple will work wonders on your blood and liver, removing some serious toxins before working on the fat-burning process.
Beetroot, apart from its cleansing properties, is also known to improve your energy levels and overall endurance, which is probably why you’ll end up feeling 10 pounds lighter after ingesting this blend, despite its quite high caloric value.
Sometimes I make it with more of one ingredient than another, making it more red versus more orange. I love the variety that this juice provides.
And speaking of calories, this recipe has 418 calories per serving, which is due to the presence of fruits like pineapples and oranges. Despite that though, it provides 8 grams of protein and 106 grams of carbohydrates, 19 grams of which is fiber, along with a whopping 34,000 IU of vitamin A, among the others. No wonder that this Mega Detox Recipe gives so much happy energy!
So, without further ado, here’s the recipe that you and your juicing buddies will surely love.
- 2 leaves red cabbage
- 3 ea medium-sized carrots chopped
- 1/2 ea lemon
- 1 ea beet peeled and chopped
- 1 ea orange quartered
- 1/2 ea pineapple peeled and chopped
- handful of spinach
- Wash and clean the vegetables and fruits in running water before slicing them into smaller pieces.
- Process all the ingredients in the juicer, a few at a time, until the mixture is homogenous.
- Pour it over a glass filled with ice and serve. Or, chill for later use. Enjoy!
- Pressed juices are best enjoyed cold or chilled. Thus, you may do this ahead of time, keep them in a glass container or jar with a tight-fitting lid, and store it in the fridge, where it can last for up to 3 days. Otherwise, you can pour it over a glass filled with ice and drink immediately.
- While it’s okay to juice beets with their skin on, especially since most high-powered juicers can process them, it can give a dirt-like, earthy taste that’s quite unpalatable. Especially, if you’re starting out on a juice diet. Beets are hard to manually peel though, but it’s totally worth the taste when they’re processed skin-off.
- This recipe calls for a juicer. But, if you don’t have one, you may use the blender instead. All you’ve got to do is chop the ingredients smaller and pulse them in the blender. However, you will probably want to strain the mixture before drinking to make the texture smoother and more pleasant. Here is a video showing you how to strain the blend. You will need a strainer like this one and a mesh bag like this one.
