You can get the awesome power of cranberries by drinking detox juice made with this special fruit. In each of these recipes it’s recommended to use organic, fresh cranberries to avoid herbicides and pesticides, which will undermine your detox efforts.

Cranberry Juice Detox Water

1. Cranberry Detox Water

This is a very simple recipe for a cranberry detox water that you can use as often as you’d like to help support the body, especially the urinary tract. It’s a way to get pure cranberry juice that isn’t sweetened and doesn’t have preservatives added to it. By placing crushed cranberries in water you are infusing the water with the juice, and allowing the nutrients to be absorbed quickly by the body. This is a much better recipe to use than buying store bought cranberry juice, and gives you control over what you’re putting in your body.

What You Need

1/2 cup Fresh Cranberries, crushed
8 ounces Purified Water

Crush the cranberries to release their juices, add them to a glass and fill with the water. Allow to sit for 30 minutes. You’ll be helping to hydrate your body each time you drink this, while also getting the nutrients from the cranberries. This is a detox water that you can drink daily for better health.

2. CranKale Green Smoothie

This smoothie combines two superfoods, kale and cranberries, and makes it easy for you to get a chunk of your day’s requirement of vitamins and minerals all in one glass. Green smoothies have enjoyed popularity in recent years, and for a good reason. They’re loaded with vegetables but retain the flavor of fruit. With the strong flavor of cranberries the kale goes relatively unnoticed, a good thing if you’re not the biggest fan of the taste of kale.

What You Need

1/2 cup Fresh Cranberries
1/4 cup Fresh Blueberries
1/2 cup Baby Kale
1/2 cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk

There is much to be said about the benefits of kale, and when you consume cranberries with it you are getting a good complementary food which adds in some of the vitamins and minerals that kale doesn’t have. This is one green smoothie that will pack a tart punch, and will be a big help to your entire system.

3. Cranberry Detox Cocktail

You’re probably familiar with cranberry juice cocktail, the highly sweetened and most popular cranberry drink sold in stores. Here you can get the benefits from real cranberries in a cocktail mixed with other fruits that will help the body in a number of ways. Blueberries are a great fruit to combine with cranberries, as they help reduce some of the tartness while still letting the flavor of the cranberries through.

What You Need

1/4 cup Fresh Cranberries
1/4 cup Fresh Blueberries
1/2 Pear
8 ounces Purified Water

There are two ways to make up this cocktail, you can either let the fruit soak in the water (overnight is best but allow at least 30 minutes) or you can blend it up and drink it as a juice. The juice method is recommended if you’re trying to increase your fiber intake. This is a beverage you’ll likely be drawn to again and again, and can be enjoyed daily if you’re craving it.

Cranberries also have impressive data showing they can help in these areas as well.

5. Cranberry-Infused Detox Smoothie

A smoothie makes a great detox vehicle because it’s easy to drink, tastes good, and blends up superfoods so that they’re more easily absorbed by the body. Here we’re starting with a serving of cranberries, and adding in mango which will help round off the taste while providing helpful vitamins and minerals. A bit of celery makes sure that this has just a hint of pepperiness, and the orange brings back some of the sour bite of the cranberries. Coconut milk smooths everything out and keeps this free of dairy, which you’ll want to avoid when detoxing.

What You Need

1/2 cup Fresh Cranberries
1/4 cup Mango, frozen
1 stalk Celery
1/2 Orange
1/2 cup Coconut Milk

Blend all ingredients until they reach a smooth consistency. By using frozen mango you don’t have to add ice to this to make it come out cool and refreshing. If you’d rather use fresh mango be sure to add in a half cup of ice to make up the difference.
