Key Ingredients

Ingredients for liver cleanse juice laid out on a white surface.

Beets are high in fiber and add vibrant color to your glass.

Beets are also known to help with liver function and prevent liver damage. They essentially help support the both the digestive system and the body’s natural detoxification system. They are one of my favorite vegetables!

Cucumber is very hydrating and perfect for including in this delicious Liver Detox Juice.

Apples add sweetness. You can use either a red apple or a green apple for this detox drink recipe.

Lemon ties everything together with its acidity and brightness. It is a nice source of vitamin C that supports the immune system. Plus, it adds brightness of flavor to the juice and helps balance the “green” flavor.

Dandelion greens are leafy greens that have amazing antioxidants and are highly nutritious. They have also been studied for their role in supporting liver health and fighting liver disease.

Parsley is rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants. It has been studied for its role in reducing heavy metals in the body and is one of those healthy foods that is almost always included in any detox diet. It’s great for reducing harmful substances and reducing oxidative stress. Be sure to use flat-leaf parsley and not the curly kind.

Recipe Steps

Step One

Rough chop all ingredients and add to a high-powered blender. You can also use a juicer for this recipe.

I recommend using a Vitamix blender or a masticating juicer (see my list of the best juicers).

As always, please do see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Step Two

Add dandelion greens on top, then water.

If you’re using a juicer, then leave out the water and simply juice all of the ingredients.

Step Three

Top the blender with the parsley, then lock on the lid.

Step Four

Blend until smooth. Then, strain and serve!

Recipe Tips & Substitutions

  • Fresh juice is best served right after it’s made. But, it can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  • You can peel the cucumber if you want to, but you don’t have to.
  • Use whatever type of apple you like best. Red apples tend to have more natural sugars than green apples. If you want your juice to have less sugar, then you can leave out the apple entirely.

Recipe FAQs

What type of cucumbers should I use?

Whatever is in your garden or farmer’s market! You can peel or not, depending on how it normally affects you. If you buy hothouse or English, they are generally seedless. Because you are blending or juicing and then straining, the seeds aren’t a problem.

How often can I drink this Liver Cleanse Juice?

You may want to ask your healthcare provider, but most people should be able to drink it once a day. Be forewarned that consuming beets or beetroot juice can turn your stool pink or red. So, don’t be alarmed if this happens after you drink the juice.

Does this juice really cleanse the liver?

The liver is one of our essential organs and works naturally to help detoxify our blood. It is sometimes known as the body’s “filter.” One of the most important functions of the liver is to breakdown alcohol and other harmful substances, among many other duties.

While a healthy liver does its own cleansing or detoxification work, it’s a good idea to support the liver by consuming foods with antioxidants so it remains strong and functioning.

Eating unhealthy foods or too many refined carbohydrates can lead to fatty liver disease and other liver problems. On the other hand, eating solid foods or doing a juice cleanse with this liver cleansing juice recipe only helps to support the liver’s work.

What other foods help cleanse the liver?

Almost all real, whole foods will benefit the liver as well as the entire body. Try eating more cruciferous vegetables to increase your overall antioxidant intake. You may also want to read my articles on the Best Foods to Eat Every Day, Clean Eating Shopping List, and the Best Green Vegetables.

Do you use raw or cooked beets in this recipe?

Use raw beets. Just remove any greens and scrub the beets well before cutting and juicing.

Liver Cleanse Juice

Support your liver’s natural detoxification abilities with this Liver Cleanse Juice. Some of the potential benefits may include feeling less bloated and more energetic! This healthy juice is easy to make and tastes great too.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 beets, scrubbed well
  • 1/2 bunch dandelion greens, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1 bunch flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 lemon, skin removed
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 apple
  • 1 cup water (if using a blender)

Instructions

  1. Cut the produce into large pieces that will fit through the feeding tube of a juicer. If you will be using a blender to make your juice, then cut your produce into smaller pieces than if you are using a juicer. If using a blender, you may also wish to remove the stems from the parsley.
  2. If you are using a juicer, then run the vegetable and fruit pieces through the juicer. Collect the juice and serve immediately.
  3. If you are using a food processor or blender, add the beets, dandelion greens, parsley, lemon, cucumber, and apple pieces to the base. Add 1 cup of water. Blend or process on high for 20-30 seconds, or until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Then, pour the blended juice through a nut milk bag, squeezing it from the top down to drain the juice into a pitcher. Discard the collected pulp, or save it and use it for another purpose.
  5. Serve the juice immediately.

Notes

  1. Fresh juice is best served right after it’s made. But, it can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  2. You can peel the cucumber if you want to, but you don’t have to.
  3. Use whatever type of apple you like best. Red apples tend to have more natural sugars than green apples. If you want your juice to have less sugar, then you can leave out the apple entirely.
