Apple Lemon Ginger Juice Cleanse Starter Recipe

Whether you’re doing a one-day juice cleanse,  3 day DIY juice cleanse or just looking for new juices to add to your repertoire of recipes, this is one that you will not want to pass  up! It is one of our most-loved juice recipes of all time.

This recipe focuses on the big three detoxifying ingredients, apples, lemon, and ginger. A great first juice of the day, this one will get the detox process going and the added heat from the cayenne jump starts the metabolism.

We like to use this cold press juice recipe as our starter juice during a juice cleanse.

Even if you decide to make this juice your first juice in the morning, you may want to consider starting off with a glass of warm lemon water first. Drinking warm lemon water as you "break" your over night "fast" helps to stimulate the liver and being the cleansing process.

Apples,

I drink lemon and ginger tea every day for my gout. Never tried it with cayenne before. Lemon has loads of vitamin C which can help reduce inflammation caused by gout and potaassium, which helps the body maintain healthy uric acid levels which cause gout. Ginger also contains antioxidants that assist in controlling the levels of uric acid in your body. Gingerols and shogaols, two compounds in ginger, help reduce inflammation and pain related to gout.

Where do I find the macros on your juice recipes? Or how do I calculate them if they aren’t listed anywhere? This is my favorite juice to start the day with. Literally drink it 7 days a week 52 weeks a year.

Hey John! Great to hear, we love this one too! If you are looking for macros just for personal use, you can try https://juicerecipes.com/build/ These free online tools are pretty far off (for juicing), however this is the one we found to be the best of them. If you are looking to get macros for your juice business, you would want to get them professionally built out. We offer that service here: https://www.goodnature.com/product/nutrition-analysis-label/

Should I be drinking the whole 12 oz it makes in one serving?

Mar 9, 2022
Robin Frey

Hi Lauren, Short answer is yes! But definitely listen to your body, if you feel you should be drinking less, then start off with a smaller amount and gradually increase.

Love this one! About how long does this one last in the fridge?

Jul 7, 2021
Robin Frey

Thanks Meisha! It really depends on which type of juicer you have. If you have a centrifugal style juicer, you really should drink the juice immediately after making it. If you have a slow juicer (masticating juicer) you can keep in the refrigerator for about two days. If you have a juice press, you can keep in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.

Can you use this drink for acid reflux as I have tried everything to try to alkalize the acid as I have it even first thing in the morning before I eat and everything I eat makes it worse? I have been on PPI's for 15 yrs and it is not working to control the acid. I thought this drink may help first thing in the morning as apples seem to stop my acid if I eat one after lunch. Do I peel the red apples also ?

Jun 24, 2021
Robin Frey

Hi Janet, I think this recipe minus the cayenne pepper would be a good one to try in the morning. Since cayenne pepper can actually trigger acid reflux, I would omit it. Ginger naturally soothes the stomach and can help reduce the production of stomach acid. Although lemon juice is very acidic, small amounts can have an alkalizing effect when it's digested. This can also help neutralize the acid in your stomach. Apples are a good source of alkalizing minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium and it's thought that these may help relieve symptoms of acid reflux. I would keep the apple with the skin on, as there is a ton of important nutrients (like vitamin K, A, C, calcium and potassium) in the peel. Let us know how it works for you!

Can I use green apples instead of red?

May 27, 2021
Robin Frey

Hi Val, Yes, absolutely! There is less sugar in green apples and they will make the juice a little less sweet and more tart 😄

I am new to juicing. I recently went to a doctor's appointment and was shocked to see how much weight I've gained since becoming wheelchair-bound 2 years ago. I think juicing may help me lose weight and aid me in getting healthier. As I said, I'm a newbie to all this and your site looks like it will help me to know not only what to juice, but also why to juice a particular fruit or vegetable. Thanks and Fingers crossed.

Hi John, You're so welcome! I hope our recipes will be helpful to you in your new juice journey 😄 Happy Juicing!

Adelle

How can I juice the apples and lemons? Can I put it all in a blender.?

Mar 1, 2021
Robin Frey

Hi Adelle, We recommend using a juice extractor to make juice. If you don't have a juicer, you can try blending it and straining it through a fine sieve or nut milk bag. Hope this helps 😄

Thanks for sharing Carol! I agree, this juice is good without the pepper as well. Super anti-inflammatory too 😄

Is it good for for gouty arthritis patient.

Dec 28, 2020
Robin Frey

Hi Alma, Based on what I've read and learned, this juice (with lemon and ginger) is good for gout/arthritis as it contains anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have shown that lemon juice lowers the levels of uric acid (one of the causes of gout) in the body. You can read more about that here: https://www.healthline.com/health/lemon-juice-gout A recent study conducted in 2019 with rheumatoid arthritis patients showed that "The outcomes indicated that ginger seems to improve RA symptoms" https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/30844477/ Read more about the health benefits of ginger for arthritis from the Arthritis Foundation here: http://blog.arthritis.org/living-with-arthritis/health-benefits-of-ginger/

Do you add the cayenne pepper into the juicer at the time of juicing or is it sprinkled on top of the juice when you drink it.

Jul 26, 2020
Robin Frey

Hi Andrew, We add it to the juice, so you can sprinkle on top or stir it in 😄

Jul 19, 2020
Robin Frey

Hi Sonya, Yes, when we cleanse, we drink this juice at the start of every cleanse day, so once a day. 😄
