5 Healthy homemade juice blends to start off the new year right

Did you overindulge during the holidays or just want to start off your new year on a healthier note? Whether you want to detox, boost your energy or bust that cold, these five fresh juice recipes are just what your body needs to get back on track.

Each of these juices has its own unique ingredients and also its own personal health benefit to get you feeling your best. While I recommend drinking your fresh juice immediately, you can store it for up to 24 hours in a jar secured tightly with a lid.

For these juice recipes I use mainly organic produce, especially any fruits or vegetables where the skin is consumed. No matter what, make sure you wash your produce well.
