** Disclosure: I was sent 3 bottles of Daily Greens Juice and the Daily Greens 4 Day Cleanse Book to review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. ***
Sean & I love juicing and we even did a 3 day cleanse back in April so when I had the opportunity to try Daily Greens I jumped on it. I’m always up to try some new brands.
Daily Greens is the brain child of Shauna Martin, who was diagnosed with breast cancer years ago. She attributes her recovery to drinking a green juice a day along with a healthy lifestyle. She wanted to share her drink your veggies habit with others.
Daily Greens is manufactured in Texas and is available for sale via their website, as well as some Whole Foods locations, I found 5 locations here in San Diego, and other stores around the country.
They have the following juice lines: Core Greens, Chia Infused Greens & Green Infused Hemp Milks.
I received 3 bottles of juice from the Core Greens collection: Purity, Renew & Elevate. They were overnighted to me with four ice packs in a cooler bag.
There are 6 different green juices in the Core Greens line, so there is a lot of variety. The three I received are what they include in their 4 day cleanse kit.
Purity: 60 calories, 12 grams of sugar, 2 grams protein and includes: Kale, Parsley, Broccoli, Cucumber, Celery, Lemon & Basil
Renew: 90 calories, 18 grams sugar, 5 grams protein and includes: Mint, Spinach, Cucumber, Watermelon, Dandelion Greens, Pineapple, Celery, Lime & Himalayan Pink Sea Salt
Elevate: 140 calories, 24 grams sugar, 4 grams protein and includes: Pear, Spinach, Watercress, Cucumber, Lime & Madagascar Vanilla
Taste wise they were very green, not bad or hard to drink, but just different from what I typically drink, which tends to include apple. The Purity & Renew both tasted kind of thin, but considering they didn’t really have much in the way of calories, that’s not surprising.
My favorite of the 3 was probably the Elevate because it was a little sweeter, the sugar content was significantly higher than the other 2 and the Madagascar Vanilla added a unique flavor to the juice.
I do have to say though, in comparison to the Suja cleanse, that I had so much more energy the day I drank these juices. I was a bit shocked in fact, because I had a really tough time the first day of the Suja cleanse. I think I’ll be starting my day with hot lemon or lime water and a Daily Greens Juice more often. And even Munch wanted to try them too 😉 lol.
Since I did this “mini” cleanse a few days before the wedding, I didn’t really have time nor the supplies to do a true cleanse, but I am definitely looking forward to doing the seasonal 4 day cleanses outlined in the book.
The Daily Greens 4-Day Cleanse book includes a foreword by the actress, Mayim Bialik and outlines four different 4 day Green Juice & Raw Food Cleanses: New Year, Spring, Summer & Fall. Also included is information for what to do pre cleanse & post cleanse maintenance meal ideas.
I’m super excited to try one of these cleanses, unfortunately Sean & I have been traveling so much, I haven’t been able to commit to one yet, but I fully intend to as soon as we have a full week here at home so I can have time to prep, etc. Oh and I need get a juicer, that’s an important part of a juice cleanse 😉
Included in each of the four cleanses is a shopping list for both the juice & the food. This makes things so much easier because you aren’t just guessing at what you need.
Each day is outlined for you as to what juices & food you should eat. You drink several juices for breakfast and lunch. They also give some extra food options if you are still hungry for lunch and afternoon snack, although they say that your need for additional food will decrease the farther you are into the cleanse. Then you finish up the day with a raw food appetizer & dinner for each day. It’s nice that there are food options so that you aren’t just drinking all your meals.
I’m looking forward to trying this out and I’ll definitely be sharing my experience.
Have you ever tried a juice cleanse?

These juices look so refreshing! I love green juices – but not for a cleanse, just as a drink 🙂

Me too Liz! We do both cleansing & drinking green juices everyday. These were yummy and gave me so much energy!
