DIY Juice Cleanse Recipes

I loved sharing my experience with the 3-day BluePrint Juice Cleanse yesterday. It’s fun to step out of my comfort zone and try something different to share on the blog. A juice cleanse is no joke, but I survived and feel pretty good about it.

Since I shared with you the ingredients for the BluePrint Cleanse, I wanted to do a little round-up from my DIY version incase you wanted to try out any of the juices or even do a little cleanse yourself! If you are thinking about cleansing, you don’t have to do 3 days – you could do whatever you want! A day, a week, or even just replacing a meal or a snack with a juice, I think you will feel fantastic!

Everything’s better with a little juice!

Green Juice – An alkalizing juice mixture meant to get the body started & bring balance to our acidic systems. I used these ingredients to make a 24 oz green juice: 1/2 cucumber, 5 celery stalks, 3 small apples, small bunch of parsley, 2 handfuls of spinach, 2-3 stalks of kale, 1 lemon, 1 lime, a small nugget of ginger.

Spicy Lemonade – Juice mix focused on giving the metabolism a boost/jump start. For this You can use 2-3 lemons if you are using a juicer, or 3-4 lemons if you plan to juice them by hand. Once you have the juice from the lemons, add it to 14 oz of water. Then add about 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper & 1 tbsp of agave – those are the measurements I used, but you could add more or less of each to your taste. Definitely start with less of the cayenne if you aren’t into the spiciness of it, because it definitely gives the lemonade a kick

Carrot Juice – Full of healthy beta keratin. I used a 3-4 large carrots, 1 lemon, 1 lime & 3 small apples  along with about 5 celery stalks. Quick and easy, but full of flavor!

Beet Juice – Ingredients meant to keep energy/sugar levels up. This recipe calls for 1 beet, 2-3 carrots, 3 small apples, 1 lemon, 1 lime, ginger slice. Some cleanses do not use carrots for this juice, but others do –  Since beets aren’t my favorite, I added in the carrots to downplay the beet-iness of the juice. I also added a 1/2 cucumber at the end, to again, mask some of the beet flavor.

Cashew Milk – Dessert! Cashews are a great source of protein, but this milk/juice is a fantastic sweet treat to end the day. Here are the ingredients for the milk – 4 oz. raw cashews, 1 tbsp agave, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, 16 oz water. This juice milk recipe is the first one that doesn’t call for an actual juicer. Al thrown into my my Vitamix and it comes out beautifully. Love this one!

    These look so good! I’ve done the BluePrint Cleanse a few times, but it is pricy. So I appreciate these budget-friendly and fresher options. Thanks 🙂
