Terri’s Skin Detox Superjuice Recipe

I have been experimenting with different ‘superfood’ ingredients and have tried to create a vitality drink with amazing health benefits that actually tastes good. I think I’ve done it! Skin health is really about combining good nutrition with an effective skincare regimen and a healthy lifestyle. This superjuice has a multitude on benefits including:

  1. Clarifying the skin
  2. Increasing energy levels
  3. Reducing sugar cravings
  4. Detoxifying internal pollutants
  5. Reducing halitosis and body odour
  6. Improving immunity
  7. Increasing blood flow
  8. Improving digestive health
  9. Maintaining blood alkalinity for general wellness

The recipe:

  • 200ml coconut water
  • 1 lemon quartered (no rind)
  • ½ Lebanese cucumber chopped
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • Approximately 10 mint leaves
  • 1 thumbnail fresh ginger (preferably organic)
  • ½ thumbnail fresh turmeric (preferably organic)
  • 1 handful baby spinach or kale
  • 1 tablespoon liquid chlorophyll (from your local health food store)
  • 1-2 sachets Natvia natural sweetener to taste (available from most supermarkets)
  • 3 ice cubes (this keeps the nutrients cool to prevent breakdown of vital plant proteins)
  • Optional: Add 2 teaspoons of ‘Vital Greens’ Powder or ‘pH Ion’ powder for a real boost!

Pulverise at a high speed for about one minute until fully blended. I recommend the Magic Bullet or Ninja Blender (not a juicer) with a blade speed of 10,000 RPM.

Drink immediately or within 30 minutes of preparation. Enjoy!
