Kris’s Beauty Detox Elixir

You can make this at home if you have a juicer, or you can have it prepared at a health-food store. I find it helps to give this list of ingredients to the person doing the juicing for easier ordering.

Ingredients for Detox Elixir

  • 1 3-inch wedge of cabbage
  • ½ large beet
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 unpeeled lemon
  • 1 small jalapeño (remove seeds)
  • A couple bunches of dark greens (parsley, spinach, kale, watercress, etc.)

*A thumb sized piece of ginger root can be used if you do not want the jalapeño.

Detox Elixir Directions

  • Scrub, don’t peel, your produce. 
  • Cut everything up
  • Run it all through a juicer

The benefits of this detox drink are out of this world

Cabbage heals the stomach lining. Beet is a terrific blood cleanser and wonderful for the skin. Dark greens are the ultimate detoxifiers and bone builders. Carrots are loaded with skin, vision, and body-healing carotenoids. Lemon alkalizes the body, and the peel is loaded with bioflavoids. Ginger improves circulation and digestion. Jalapeno increases circulation.
