CONGRATULATIONS to Melody Co and Katrina D. Ballecer! You each win a Juju Cleanse Solo Kit! Will email you in a bit for details :)

You know the feeling. The sluggish, nappish, blah-ish feeling you get after the holidays, when you promise yourself THIS is the year the resolutions WILL happen, yet you feel  like you can just bury your head under the ground from too much indulgence. Whenever I feel like that, which is often, I know it’s time to junk the gunk. And that’s when Juju Cleanse comes to the rescue.  Inside this  nifty little insulated pouch of power is a quartet of freshly squeezed juice combinations sure to jumpstart your path to cleansing, detoxing, and resoluting. Usually, I do a 3-day Juju Cleanse but, let’s face it, sometimes you just can’t get rid of your cravings for chewing and end up drinking the Juju AND eating. Now you can have the best of both worlds and still improve your veggie intake.

Unlike the regular Juju Cleanse Kit, which are 6 500ml juices meant to be your caloric replacement for the day, Juju Cleanse solos are 350ml bottles of yummy juices that are great as meal replacements (I drink the Green Bomb every morning), as a boost during your regular day, and especially for pre- and post-cleansing. I carry my drinks in this bag as my ‘baon’ and put the ice pack to keep the bottles chilled.

  And since Juju Cleanse is squeezed and bottled fresh daily and delivered to your doorstep, they will stay fresh and potent for up to 48 hours. So one order of 4 is good for 1-2 days. Perfect coz I like to start and end my day with one of these bottles if only to tell myself I have begun the path to health and wellness. You know what they say, fake it til you make it.

You can customize your combinations from a myriad of different juice options, but here are my absolute favorites: The Green Bomb

Celery. Cucumber. Coconut Water. Malunggay. Pineapple. Romaine Lettuce. Spinach.This elixir of assorted green veggies loads you up with important nutrients and enzymes that our bodies desperately need to keep alive and well down to the cellular level.”

Guys, I cannot tell you enough about how important it is to drink a green smoothie or juice on a daily basis. I do it every morning.

Spicy Limonada

Cayenne Pepper. Honey. Lemon. Not just your ordinary lemonade. This version packs a little extra heat and health into every sip with cayenne pepper. This drink aims not only to swing your body pH into a more alkaline state, but to speed up your metabolism as well. 

For those who like a little bit of a kick in their drinks, this is definitely it. I love lemon anything and find that this actually alkalinizes your stomach instead of the usual mentality that lemon = acid.

Qcumber Quench

Cucumbers. Pineapple. Mint. If promoting good looks (as well as health) is what you’re after, then this refreshing blend of cucumber, pineapple and mint is the perfect choice. Not only does the cool cucumber help lower blood pressure and cleanse the kidneys, but it is known for keeping your skin, nails and hair looking radiant and healthy as well. 

This is a new drink on their roster, and I absolutely love its refreshing taste and light disposition. Like a non-alcoholic mojito for the afternoon. Yum as an afternoon quencher.

Atomic Carrot

Carrot. Ginger. Pineapple. Carrots are a goldmine of natural vitamins and nutrients with a long list of therapeutic effects making it extremely beneficial for pregnant women and young children. Aside from improving our eyesight, strengthening bones and teeth, and supporting the thyroid gland, drinking raw carrot juice can also be helpful for lowering the symptoms of stress and normalizing the function of our digestive system.

 I’m just gonna put it out there: I don’t like carrots. But the pineapple and ginger helps the medicine go down a little better.

Here’s another combination that I enjoyed throughout the day, as there is more of a variety and tastes like dessert.

Vanilla Nutmilk

Cashew Nuts. Honey. For those looking for an alternative to dairy or soy, look no further. Rich in zinc, copper, magnesium, and B-vitamins, our vanilla cashew nutmilk is dairy-free, vegan-friendly, and 100% delicious! Perfect on its own or blended with your favorite fruit as a hearty smoothie to help build healthy bones, strengthen hair, skin and nails, as well as combat depression.

OMG! I absolutely love this Juju Solo! Tastes like a delicious milkshake that I do not mind having over and over again. I had some leftover frozen berries and blended them together and I had a berry milkshake that could sink ships.

Gotta have my Green Bomb Alkazest

Coconut Water. Grapefruit. Pineapple. This vitamin and anti-oxidant rich mix of grapefruit, pineapple, and coconut juices is a refreshing mid-afternoon picker upper. It is designed to replenish your electrolytes and boost your energy levels to help get you through the rest of the day. 

I am big on grapefruit especially after i found out it has negative calories (google it!), and the scent also acts as an appetite suppressant, and this is one of my favorite drinks to have mid-day when I feel like having something sweet as a snack.

Red Giant

Beets. Carrots. Ginger. Pineapple. Rich in alkaline elements that aid in cleansing and elimination, this potent potion of beets, pineapple, carrots, and ginger is as healthy as it is delicious. Beets are remarkably good for your liver, and beet juice has been shown to increase stamina and act as an athletic performance enhancer.

I think Juju Cleanse and I are a great tandem because I love the veggie and fruit combinations that go into every single bottle they produce. I absolutely LOOOOOVE beets, though for some this juice takes a bit getting used to. It’s great as a cleanser and you can really see it go through your body. And by see, I mean, just take a peek when you go to the loo :)

Every delivery of Juju Cleanse comes with some fresh mint, so you can steep yourself some peppermint tea which eases cravings and calms you down as well.

You can mix and match your Juju Solos of trust their taste and order a Solo Kit, which is a quad of juices specifically made for the following: Anti-Stress, Energy, Hangover (HELLO I NEED THIS!), Complexion, Immune Boost, Vit C Boost and Kids.
