A juice cleanse is a great way to reset after the holidays, or anytime you've overindulged a bit. Juicing fruits and vegetables with a juicer helps to extract nutrients, making them easier to digest. You can also make juices in your blender, but it will require you to first chop them into smaller pieces, add water, and strain the pulp out before serving. There are endless juice cleanse plans, some far more restrictive than others. These recipes are great no matter your cleansing style, from green juices to detox waters. Here are 21 juice cleanse recipes for those who prefer to drink their fruits and vegetables.
