Overdo it on the holiday cookies and cocktails this season? Yeah, us too. Now that juice cleanse doesn’t sound like such a bad idea. 

But buying a juice cleanse may not be an option for our lighter wallets at the moment. So we rounded up five super simple juice recipes whipped together by local nutrition experts that you can make in the comfort of your own home. Instead of reaching for those holiday leftovers to snack on, gulp down some healthy veggies and fruits instead. 

1. Blueberry Basil Lemonade Recipe
You don’t need a juicer to make this Sweetgreen lemonade. Even though it’s not blueberry season, you can stock up on the antioxidant-rich fruit in the frozen section of the grocery store.

2. Choosing Raw’s Festive Sweet Potato Vegetable Juice 
Gena Hamshaw’s juice is rich in vitamins C and A, thanks to the sweet potato, red bell pepper, and carrots. 

3. Green Goodness 
Where would juices be without some greens? Elise Museles of Kale and Chocolate puts together a green goodness juice with romaine lettuce, kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, and green apple. 

4. Yogurt Juice 
Registered dietitian Nour Zibdeh puts a twist on the average juice recipe with her family recipe that includes plain yogurt, water, ice, and salt. 

5. Blood Orange, Beet, and Pomegranate Juice
Weekly Greens blogger Alicia Sokol shares this special juice recipe courtesy of Derek Brown, the owner of the Passenger and the Columbia Room. It’s loaded with vitamin C, fiber, vitamin A, folate, potassium, and other detoxing nutrients.
