5 recipes for detox juices when you stop smoking

Tobacco contains substances that are toxic to the body and can affect several areas of your body. When you stop smoking, it can take several weeks for your body to eliminate the toxins caused by cigarettes and return to normal. However, some foods can help speed up the body's purification process.

Here are 5 delicious juice recipes to help you through your withdrawal.

1 - "Healthy glow" juice with grapefruit 🍊

In addition to being very refreshing, grapefruit and orange are rich in vitamin C, which is a very powerful antioxidant. This vitamin fights skin aging and gives your skin a healthy glow. As you probably know, smoking dulls the complexion, making the skin look more damaged and aged.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin against irritation, inflammatory reactions, and pollution. It also allows the immune system to fight disease and offers a considerable energy source.

So here's the perfect recipe to restore your skin's vitamins and radiance and help it regenerate faster!

It's easy to prepare, and in less than 5 minutes, you'll have your "healthy glow" juice for 2 people!


  • 2 grapefruits

  • 2 oranges

  • 1 lemon


Squeeze the 5 fruits (add sugar if necessary to reduce the acidity) and enjoy.

2 - "Anti-inflammatory" juice with ginger 🍍

Ginger is a plant with multiple benefits. It has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. When quitting smoking, it is highly recommended to consume ginger to soothe the digestive problems that can arise during smoking cessation.

Ginger permits the production of digestive enzymes and stimulates bile secretion for optimal digestion.

Here's a perfect recipe for 2 people to detoxify your body.


  • 100g of ginger

  • 300g pineapple

  • 1 lemon

  • 1 packet of vanilla sugar

  • 5 mint leaves

  • Powdered sugar


  • Squeeze the lemon

  • Put the pineapple and ginger in a blender, then add the lemon juice and vanilla sugar

  • Mix it all together

  • Serve in a bowl with the mint leaves and enjoy.

3 - "Detox" juice with green vegetables πŸ₯’

Green vegetables are rich in magnesium and minerals. Smokers are less likely to have these minerals, as cigarettes prevent the body's proper absorption through the diet.

Cucumbers have many benefits. It's a slimming ally thanks to its high water content, which facilitates drainage in the body, while its high vitamin C content helps the skin regain a radiant complexion.

Here's an excellent cucumber juice for 2 people.


  • 2 green apples

  • 1 cucumber

  • 1 lemon

  • One tablespoon of parsley

  • A glass of water


The best solution is to put everything in a juice extractor (except the water, which should be added at the end of the preparation, along with the mint leaves).

If you don't have a juice extractor, blend the apples, cucumber, and parsley in a blender. Then, add the lemon juice, water, and mint leaves and enjoy.

4 - "Digestion" juice with kiwi πŸ₯

Kiwifruit and lemon are two fruits rich in vitamin C. Kiwifruit also has a laxative effect, which can help relieve constipation, which is sometimes linked to smoking cessation.

Here's a perfect smoothie for 2 people to help you fill in on vitamin C.


  • 3 kiwis

  • 1 lemon

  • 100g of white cheese


Blend the kiwis, fromage blanc, and lemon juice for around 5 minutes, then enjoy.

5 - "Vitamin booster" juice with carrot πŸ₯•

Oranges, carrots, and lemons are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, and vitamin E.
