Detox Breakfast


It’s the same old story every year. There’s just no getting away from it.

Put your hand up anyone who didn’t swear in front of the mirror just before the Christmas party season got into full swing that this year they definitely weren’t going to eat and drink so much. But of course, it’s easier said than done. Old school friends, chums from uni, those cousins you haven’t seen for ages, seeing the old year out and the new year in…It just goes on and on in one big social whirl! So, if you’re one of those incorrigible (or unpredictable – which sounds better) people who, however hard they try, never get round to doing what they intended to do, we’ve come up with a couple of detox juices that will help to beat off the effects of those Christmas excesses. And put your hand up if you’ve never overdone it…not even once! Of course we all have at some time.

We’re not going to give you one of those disgusting recipes based on green apples and maple syrup extract – we’re not as boring as that! Instead we’ve come up with a couple of “detox” juice recipes that are simply delicious at any time of day. These juices are not only truly delicious, but will also help us to “detox” – whatever that really means. At least they’ll stop you from feeling so guilty…

Just try one of these first thing in the morning to get the day off to a great start!

Strawberry and banana shake
Simply put all these ingredients into your blender and mix until you get the required texture.

  • 1 large cup of soya milk
  • 1 handful of strawberries
  • 1 sliced banana
  • 1 small glass of natural orange juice

To sweeten, add a dash of honey or a couple of teaspoons of sugar. All right, I know, liquid sweetener is the boring option, but it is an option.

Fruit mix
These are the types of fruit we recommend, but you can use anything you’ve got in your fridge.

  • 2 peeled kiwis
  • 2 peeled peaches
  • 2 slices of pineapple
  • A handful of blueberries
  • The juice of 1 lemon
  • A sprinkle of powdered ginger
  • 1 glass of chilled full fat milk
  • Several ice cubes

Blend all the ingredients until the liquid is runny and strain if necessary. Crush the ice and add to the shake. Serve chilled!
