The Dreamy Detox, from Jason Vale’s 3-Day Juice Challenge
Apple and cucumber are amazing ingredients for flushing out and cleansing the system. The celery helps to flush the body of excess carbon dioxide and reduce acidity in the body (perfect after too much food and drink intake!)
Ginger is a well known natural antibiotic and superb decongestant while lemon is particularly powerful at removing harmful bacteria and toxins from the intestinal tract – also amazing at cleansing the liver and kidneys.
JUICY INGREDIENTS: 2 apples (Golden Delicious or Gala), 2-3cm lemon (unwaxed), 2-3cm cucumber, 1 stalk celery, 2-3cm raw ginger and 1 small handful ice.
JUICY INSTRUCTIONS: Juice everything and pour over ice. Sip slowly and enjoy!
