Homemade Weight Loss Detox Drinks

Homemade Weight Loss Detox Drinks

Over the past few decades, the world has focused more on one’s individual health. While this primarily entails the major advancements in cancer treatments, surgeries, and other life-threatening difficulties, this awareness has also brought about food and drinks that support longevity, energy, and one’s overall health.

Among these new products are “detox drinks”; smoothie-like drinks that deliver the necessary vitamins and nutrients to support these life-extending benefits. They are certainly popular, and for good reason. Aside from its healthy qualities, these drinks are fairly simple to make, very easy to transport, and can be made to satisfy nearly anyone’s taste buds!

Here are the 8 best detox drink recipes that are currently being used, all of which can be used as homemade weight loss detox drinks.

1) The Hawaiian

(Pineapple, Pomegranate and Lemon Juice)

Obviously the names are subject to change if you wish, but I’ve assigned names to the drinks based on the ingredients. The Hawaiian’s primary ingredient is pineapple, which provides a delicious tropical flavor to the drink – not to mention pineapple’s copious amounts of Vitamin B and potassium.

Pomegranates are known for their unrivaled amounts of antioxidants (yes, more than green tea), and the lemon juice adds metabolism with its citrusy kick.

2) Christmas Cocktail

(Kale, Pomegranate, Cranberry, Mint and Pear)

Kale is every health nut’s dream ingredient, because it provides a wide array of vitamins (primarily Vitamins B, E, and calcium) with virtually no taste, and it provides the “green” in the Christmas Cocktail!

Pomegranates, as we mentioned earlier, are rich in antioxidants, as are cranberries (which also provide the “red” in the cocktail). The pear and mint mostly add taste, although pears are also known for having fiber, Vitamins B, C and E, and potassium.

3) The Veggie Color Wheel

(Tomatoes, Peppers, Carrots, Lemons, Celery, Parsley, Romaine, Cilantro)

No, there aren’t any blue fruits or vegetables, but that may be the only main color not listed above. You will be able to get your required vegetable intake for the day through this smoothie, plus a refreshing touch from the Vitamins C and K rich tomatoes, and the citrus kick from the lemons.

4) The Sunrise Smoothie

(Grapefruit, Avocado, Strawberry, Banana, Orange Juice)

Grapefruit is well-known for its detoxifying abilities, and avocados are widely considered a superfood, and include Vitamins B, C, E, K, fiber and potassium. Bananas and strawberries are as widely known for their vitamins as they are their great, sweet taste.

Orange juice rounds out the drink, so try to get a brand with the highest Vitamin C content – oranges are also known for their high Vitamin A and calcium content.

5) The Killer ‘B’ Smoothie

(Blueberries, Bananas, Cranberry Juice)

If you haven’t guessed it yet, the potent 1-2 combination of blueberries and bananas contributed to the name of the smoothie. A special shout-out also goes to fans of the 2005 Houston Astros, who got the other meaning out of this drink name!

Blueberries have a very strong amount of Vitamins C and K, as well as manganese, fiber, and the antioxidant resveratrol. Bananas are obviously known for their potassium, but also have copious amounts of Vitamins B and C, as well as biotin and manganese. Cranberry juice provides somewhat of a “cleansing effect”, especially if you have a urinary tract infection.

6)  The Green Goblin

(Spinach, Cucumbers, Ginger)

The drink’s name comes from the former two ingredients. Spinach is considered by some to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet, if not THE healthiest. And who would argue? With its stacked vitamin and mineral content including Vitamins A, B, C, E and K, as well as calcium, potassium, and basic protein (just to name a few), you are getting an entire drink’s worth of goodness out of one ingredient!

Cucumbers deliver strong Vitamin K as well, not to mention potassium, manganese, and Vitamin C. Ginger is somewhat of a “spicy” addition, hence the “goblin” reference in the name (kudos if you can draw the comparison), but is also well-known for its fiber and cleansing effects.

7) The Liver Lover

(Beets, Kale)

This is a very simple drink, but it helps your liver’s overall function capabilities immensely. Beets are considered a superfood – and if you’ve ever watched The Office, now you know why Dwight Schrute is so fond of them – and they are very high in vitamins B and C, folate, magnesium, potassium, iron, and copper.

We mentioned kale earlier as the average health nut’s dream ingredient, and its high content of Vitamins B and E, as well as calcium, round off a fantastic drink that is sure to show your liver how much you love it!

8) Green Lemonade

(Ginger, Kale, Lettuce, Apples)

We’ve heard about ginger and kale’s vitamin and nutrient content before, and they both provide key vitamins and minerals to the drink, as well as key phytonutrients for additional sustenance. Lettuce is known for its “watery” taste, but is also very high in fiber, manganese, potassium, biotin, calcium, and Vitamins B and C.

Apples are the traditional fruit in many senses, and aside from its crisp, clean taste resides strong fiber content and a large amount of Vitamin C. It should be noted that many of these nutrients reside in the skin of the apple, so if you plan on making this smoothie, make sure to add the apple skin so you won’t lose out on any of those key nutrients!

How Do I Use These Detox Drinks?

Whether your objective is to lose weight, maintain a specific weight area, or simply increase your vitamins and nutrients intake, these detox drinks will surely do the trick. Specifically, if you are losing weight, make sure to replace a meal (or multiple meals if you choose, preferably ones with the highest empty caloric intake) with the detox drink.

If you want to be very specific with the calories in each smoothie ingredient, they are always available online to check out – take solace in the fact that NONE of these drinks are high in calories! If you wish to add, subtract, or replace ingredients in any of the drinks, you are obviously more than welcome to do so, but just be careful on what you add to the drinks!

If you can, couple these homemade weight loss detox drinks with heavy water drinking and some cardio if possible, and you’ll be well on your way to obtaining – or maintaining – a very healthy lifestyle!

  1. The Hawaiian actually sounds amazing… just my kinda drink!! Pineapple and pomegranate are, like, 2 of my fave fruits!!
    I can’t say I’m a massive fan of having veggies in my drinks though… but I would be intrigued to try the sunrise.
    The Killer B and Green Lemonade sound great too!! 🙂
    Thanks for sharing!!

    1. I’ll be honest with you – I wasn’t over the moon about trying the veggie based drinks but I was really surprised at how tasty they were overall. Give ’em a try, you might like them after all 🙂

  2. Hello Calorie Ninja, Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your article. I love being able to throw a bunch of ingredients in a blender or juicer and voila, healthy detox drinks in a glass. Can’t be easier than this. I must admit I’ve tried a few detox drinks in the past, but gave up after seeing more of the ingredients washed down th sink, than my throat. There are some delicious looking drinks I’m looking forward to trying.

  3. Hi Chris

    Really great article with some tasty looking recipes!

    I tried a juice diet about a year and a half ago where all you could drink was these different juices that you make yourself full of vitamins and minerals. It was a strict diet that had different juices at different times and you couldn’t eat anything. I lasted about five days and have never felt so faint in my life! I then mixed it will food and made my own diet where I would substitute one meal for a juice a day and the results really started showing with my increased energy.

    I completely agree with these juices and think they are incredibly healthy and would support it for anyone looking to lose a few pounds.

    Stacey 🙂

  4. In this day and age, I believe we all need to assist our bodies to get rid of the toxins that are so rampant in not only the food we eat, but even the air we breath. The industrial revolution has some really nasty side effects!

    Your site is very informative. I like the variety of the detox drinks offered. Your header graphics are spot on! I really like the two ninja guys.

    As I have gotten older, I have learned that we must aggressively pursue and help our bodies to live long by living strong and detoxing often.

    1. Totally agree Valrie – very well said!
      I’m glad you like the ninja dudes we included in the logo – took me ages to design that 🙂

  5. hey Chris, great information in this post, thanks very much! I am definitely going to try out probably all of these drinks as they all sound so delicious. I find that anything that is good for me tastes even better too so I am very excited. I hope to lose some weight and flush my system out

  6. Nice set of recipes here! I do not call it detox but essentially it is an energy boost for me and I fix my own juice regularly as a part of my daily regimen.

    What I liek about these drinks is they give you that feeling of satiation, meaning you eat less at mealtimes…Plus they keep you hydrated (I am not a fan of water, but living in Dubai you have to drink it)…

    Appreciate adding these new for me recipes here, and I will be copying them and trying all of them out over time! This site always has something I am interested in it seems! Thanks for that!

  7. These sound great.
    I have sometimes wondered about juicing and detoxing. i worry that if I cut out regular food I won’t have enough energy to work out. But I could definitely mix some of these drinks in.
    Do I just combine all the ingredients in a blender? I guess vegetables being low calorie the quantities aren’t so important?
    Anyway, thanks for the ideas because I see programs offered where I live but I’ve always wondered what’s in the drinks and now I can see I could make them myself!

    1. A blender is fine Alison – it’s what I use on a daily basis! Don’t forget to think outside the box and dream up a few of your own recipes ( healthy ones of course! )

  8. Hello Chris,

    I used to drink a few big cups of green tea with lemon every evening and it seems to work. I´ve got rid of bloated feeling and lost weight, too. But my dentist told to skip lemons cause it can ruin my teeth. Need to find some other option now, lol.

  9. Good advice to use the detox drinks as substitutes for your meals in combination with drinking lots of water and cardio. I think your advice is spot on.

    The drinks you mention in the artilce sound like they are very delicious too. The pictures add a bunch to the recipe (who wants to see just a recipe) and make it easier for a dude like me to try them….They look appetizing!

    I notice at the bottom of the post you refer the reader to another post on a diet plane or similar that could incorporate these…That is a good idea I think, showing a complete layout showing how these fit in wojld be useful. Good effort on this, I enjoyed the read…Thanks!

  10. This article is just what I have been looking for. I was looking for something natural to put in my body instead of supplements and regular over the counter products.

    I have a couple of questions though….I was looking for a drink that will mainly focus on natural energy that will keep me from being tired during the day. I don’t know if I missed that in your article. Is there one available? Also, how do you portion out these drinks when combining them?

    1. Hi Akeim,

      For natural energy I would always turn to a banana first – throw one in the mixer and see how the drink turns out! They are a great source of natural energy ( and very good for you! ). As far as portions go – use your eye ( or your stomach! ). Just make sure you don’t overdo it in a 24 hour period – things could get a little dicey in the toilet area ( if you know what I mean! ) 🙂

  11. Looks like many tasteful combinations, think I have to try them all! 🙂
    Would be helpful if you included how much of each ingredients to use.. I´m going to test and try to find out. Love healthy smoothie drinks im the morning!
    Heading over to the kitchen now to see if I have enough ingredients to make one right now 😉
    Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    1. Ahhh this is more of a ‘throw them in and see’ technique Angee – we don’t provide exact measures for something as simple as a detox smoothie! Think outside the box and create to your own tastes! 🙂

  12. You usually put out really good posts and this one is no exception. Love the post with all the great drink combinations for detox. I already have some drinks that I take with my 5-6 meals a day and you have given me some extra drinks to try.

    Once I try them out and figure out a good blend, I believe what I’ll do is switch them up throughout the week so I’ll be able to do most of them. Some ingredients I already use so I’ll find a way to have different drinks to give me the different variations to maximize what I can get each day.

    Another great post, thanks!

  13. I read through your article and I really like all the different drinks you have put together.

    I watched a movie called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, that talks about doing a juice fast once or twice a year to clean out your body.

    I have a juicer and a ninja that I use for doing these kinds of drinks. Do you have a preference? I feel like the juicer is great, but there is a lot of clean up after ward.

    I also clicked on the your link to the review on the Fat Diminisher. Loved it and am very much considering getting it. Besides, most wieght loss products like these don’t have a 60 day money back guarantee, which tells me, this thing my really work! 🙂

    I look forward to reading more of your articles soon.

    1. Hi Jason,

      I don’t really have a preference on what I use for juicing, although I do own a ninja machine! I like the sound of this ‘Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead’ movie – I’ll have to look into this a little further! 🙂

  14. Interesting. I just drank my first “detox” beverage a few days ago. It had something called “probiotics” that is supposed to strengthen my immune system. Perhaps, I should have added some pomegranates to it, I didn’t realize that pomegranates had so many antioxidants until I read this article. It is also interesting that you mentioned kale. I recently learned what kale is. When I go to the store, I am almost never in the produce section. When I do go to the produce section, particularly when I go to the “green” area, I have to read the labels very carefully because all the green stuff looks the same to me. 🙂
    Thanks for this interesting write up. It’s so easy to forget that nature has so many good things to offer us. I appreciate the reminder.

  15. You have some great homemade weight loss detox drinks here. Would love to try them out. When I want to detox, I just drink pure apple juice that I make from my juicer.

    It will be just a couple of hours then I will experience some of the symptoms of detoxing. The killer B one looks like a recipe that I should try.

  16. January’s here and after over indulging in December I’ve decided to try a detox diet. I really like the look of some of the drinks in your article and would like to try them in my diet.
    Each drink is very informative so I know what vitamins I can get from each one.
    This is the first time I’ve tried a detox diet so do you have any recommendations for ingredient amounts and the best way to make them up.

    1. I go by personal taste Ian – I’m more of a ‘load it in and hope’ guy at the end of the day ( always seems to taste better that way! ) 🙂

  17. Awesome weight loss detox drink ideas you have here. i myself have been looking around for dieting options for a while now.

    I am sure many others out there will benefit from this information that you put out here.

    Have you tested this drinks yourself? Are they that tasty at all? I am curious to know.
