UPDATE: Liver Cleanse Juice

So a few weeks ago I wrote about a liver cleanse that I came across in my travels. It was basically citrus juice, cayenne pepper, olive oil, ginger, and garlic. Well instead of making juice, I decided it would be faster to smoothie everything. It was rather gross but I pushed through and drank as much as I could for a few days.

I'm not really sure if it actually did anything to my liver, but I assume it was beneficial overall. With all those potent living fruits and vegetables and spices it had to help something.

So this time I decided to juice the citrus fruits, including the garlic and ginger. That made all the difference. This juice version is so good! It's like a spicy lemonade that is a little on the sweeter side because of the oranges. If you have a juicer I highly suggest you try it.

  • 3 oranges
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 knob ginger root
  • cayenne pepper to taste
  • dash olive oil
I would recommend putting the olive oil and cayenne pepper at the bottom of the glass before you juice the fruits, ginger, and garlic. And be careful (!) because you don't need a lot for it to become really spicy.



  1. What type of juicer do you use?

    1. I use a centrifugal juicer. I bought it at Walmart because it was easy to use and super fast to clean. There are other types of juicers that will give you better quality juice, however it is my opinion that it doesn't matter if I have the best juicer in the world. If it's going to be a pain to use and clean I won't end up juicing anyway. It's a trade off.

  2. Really a great addition. I have read this marvelous post. Thanks for sharing information about it. I really like that. Thanks so lot for your convene.
