If you’re interested in trying out your own 3-day juice cleanse, this is a great place to start!

Juice cleanses (also known as juice fasts) have been around for years, and have recently seen an increase in popularity on Instagram and other social media platforms.

Juicing is an amazing way to detox and boost the vital nutrients in your body, which is why we’re so passionate about helping others who are on their juicing journey!

Today, we’re going to share a few fresh juice recipes and tips that will help you through your DIY 3-day cleanse. These recipes include:

We’ll also cover the benefits of juice cleanses, a mock daily schedule, and tips for during/after your cleanse.

Let’s get to it!

Why Juice Cleanse? 

Before partaking in a juice cleanse, you need to know all of the benefits, right? The truth is, there are good reasons why people do juice cleanses. There are just so many benefits to juicing and juice cleanses.

Here are some of the most valuable health benefits of juice cleansing and drinking juice: 

  • Give your digestive system a break
  • Promote water weight loss (juice cleanses can also help you lose weight, but it is not the primary benefit) 
  • Reset your body to promote healthy eating habits 
  • Detox and re-hydrate your body 
  • Increase energy levels 
  • Regulate blood sugar 
  • Prevent heart disease
  • Reduce chronic inflammation

Daily Schedule 

A great way to prepare for your cleanse is to write down or print your daily schedule so you’re able to stick to your plan without any confusion. Here’s a proposed 3-day cleanse schedule: 

8:00 am (or right after you wake up): Warm Lemon Water
9:00 am: Sweet Golden Green Juice
11:00 am: Healthy Green Machine Juice
1:00 pm (or around lunchtime): Classic Beautiful Beet Juice

7:00 pm: Repeat with a juice of your choice
9:00 pm (or before bed): Warm Lemon Water or Tea 

If this schedule doesn’t work for you, no worries! You can always alter it or make your own that fits within your daily routine.

During the 3-DAY DIY JUICE Cleanse 

If this is your first cleanse, we recommend finding activities that will fill your time such as yoga and light exercise. These activities are going to help keep your mind off of food (and snacking), while also making you active and getting you out of the house.

If you feel that you’re in need of a snack, any raw vegetables or raw cashews will be your best friend. If you feel that you need to break your cleanse for any reason, we recommend slowing integrating whole foods or superfoods into your diet and to staying away from anything processed. 

After the 3-DAY DIY JUICE Cleanse 

When you’re ending your DIY juice cleanse, you will want to slowly integrate solid foods back into your diet. You can do this by adding smoothies, eating watery fruit (watermelon, cantaloupe, etc.), and other soft foods (such as oatmeal) into your diet.

When bringing food back into your diet, keep track of what you’re eating so you’re able to pinpoint any food intolerances that you may have. The most common food intolerances are dairy and gluten – pay special attention to these items.

Through this post-cleanse process, remember to hydrate by drinking lemon water, herbal tea, green juice, and more. Being mindful about what you’re putting into your body is going to help you be successful in the long run. If you feel that you’re getting off track, no worries! You can always redo your 3-day cleanse to get back on the right track – we’re all human after all! 

We hope this guide helps encourage and educate you during your juice cleanse journey! If you’re looking for more recipes or advice, visit our juicing blog.

  1. Very sorry but can I trouble you to include the approximate percentage for each ingredient for the above recipes? 🙂

    I outsource the production of my juices to a company that uses Goodnature machines and they asked for the percentage.

    1. Hi Jason,
      We have updated the article to include the percentages 🙂
      Have a great week!

  2. Hi there,

    How many ounces are in a serving? It says the recipe yields 24 ounces, is that one serving or is one serving closer to 8 ounces?

    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Rachel,

      We made this recipe based on (2) 12 oz servings, as this is a typical serving size for juice. Some people like to consume less or more, it really depends on the person!

  3. Hi there. Do you have a shopping list for this juice cleanse? Also how many ml. is 1 juice?

    Reply

    1. Hi Helena,

      Each juice recipe will yield approximately 709 ml (which is about 2 servings). Because we leave it up to you to decide which juice to have at 7pm, we do not have a standardized shopping list. However, I will send you a direct message to get more information on what you would like to do and can help you with a shopping list! 🙂

  4. Hello!
    This is sort of a TMI question lol but does this cleanse help you go to the bathroom more often?

    Reply

    1. Hi Alexandra! Yes, it sure does, hence the cleansing 🙂

      Reply

  5. Are ounces before or after juicing? When adding them up they are more than 24 so I am assuming before juicing. Am I correct?

    Reply

    1. Hi Sophie,
      Yes, you are correct. The weight of the ingredients is before juicing and the yield is the amount of juice. 🙂

  6. Nice article!

    How about juices for weight loss? it has worked well for me, especially making it easier as I get less cravings.

    I’m sure you heard a number of times how vegetables and fruit are very important for your body, weight, and overall health. Alongside that, if you’re trying to achieve a summer body, you’ve most likely tried to change your diet, exercise, and cut out snacks and alcohol.

    If anyone is interested, I recently wrote this article about best juices for weight loss: https://energeticlifestyle.com/best-juicer-recipes-for-weight-loss/

    My pick is the Mixed Green Juice… The recipe:

    · 1 bunch of chopped kale or spinach

    · 1 large orange, lemon or lime

    · 1 inch of fresh ginger or 2 tsp of honey

    · 1 cucumber

    · 2 Granny smith apples

    · 4 whole celery stalks

    I’m trying to stay extra healthy during the quarantine, so that means a lot more vitamins and fresh juices for me.

    What is your favorite juice to make?

    Take care everyone!
