Citrus Recipe #1: Cleanse for Detoxification

This summer sip is the perfect combo of sweet and tangy.

Sharp citrus notes offer a buffet of immune-boosting and cleansing vitamin C, high-water-content, mineral-rich cucumber balances the sugar in the fruit and hydrates the body, and spinach oxygenates the blood and strengthens cell integrity.

Boost with wheatgrass to further neutralize acids and expel wastes, probiotic powder to aid digestion, and basil to sooth the digestive tract and create a more dimensional flavor. If you’re taking medication that interacts with grapefruit, substitute an orange.


  • 2 cups baby spinach 1 orange, peeled
  • 1⁄2 lemon, peeled
  • 1⁄2 lime, peeled
  • 1⁄2 red grapefruit, peeled
  • 1⁄2 English cucumber
  • 1⁄2 cup filtered water
  • 3 drops alcohol-free liquid stevia, plus more to taste

Optional boosters

  • 1 small handful basil leaves
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon probiotic powder
  • 1⁄4 teaspoon wheatgrass powder


1Push the spinach, orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, cucumber, basil booster, and water through your juicer. Strain any pulp.
2Stir in the probiotic powder and wheatgrass powder boosters, if using, and add stevia to taste.

Citrus Recipe #2: Ginger Lime Mock-tail

Try this deliciously refreshing, non-alcoholic Ginger-Lime Mocktail. Ginger is packed with anti-oxidants, aids digestion and is also anti-viral to keep the pesky bugs at bay. Lime juice is bursting with Vitamin C and bioflavanoids – super-powered antioxidants to help you overcome the silly season’s over-indulgences. This yummy mock-tail will keep you refreshed and add some pep to your step as you leap into 2013!

• ¼ cup lime juice (freshly squeezed)
• 1 teaspoon zested ginger
• 12 drops Stevia
• 18 ounces sparkling water

Combine all ingredients in a jar and stir. Pour over ice into 2 cocktail glasses and garnish with lime wedges. Serve, it’s that easy!

    I have heard that lemons and also limes I believe have detox properties that help the body to flush out any toxic waste and also to cleanse the body. I am drinking hot water, with lemon every morning for my morning cleansing.
