Dominican Catherine Cuello, creator of the Green Hopping App -which helps locate cafes and restaurants where they serve green juices, smoothies, vegan, raw food, and gluten-free options in New York- talks about the benefits of detoxification to Green juice base and share delicious recipes to make juices and smoothies at home.

Juice-based detox is one of the best ways to alkalinize the body and flush toxins, especially after the holidays, but it is also recommended to do it regularly. Drinking green juices is the fastest way to ingest nutrients, minerals and vitamins, which go directly to the cells, since the body does not need to digest them.

Consider this method of feeding as "medicine" that comes directly from the original source - Mother Earth. The human body is prone to inflammation, which leads to cell deterioration. Green juices help the body to quickly get what it needs - minerals, vitamins, nutrients, etc. - and helps it avoid chronic diseases.

Through this form of detoxification one can "uncover what was covered" and "let breathe what could not breathe." That is why the skin tends to look radiant after a detox, because toxins are removed from the body. Now, the challenge is to be able to keep that skin luminous.

Celebrities like Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, and Gwyneth Paltrow drink green juices, and for good reason. It is an easy way to stay energized and fresh throughout the day. Find the balance your body needs and learn to incorporate them into your diet. Little by little you learn!

Here are some of the best superfoods and healing foods out there:


Pineapple: I always felt guilty eating pineapple because it is so sweet. That was until I discovered that it helps with protein digestion, thanks to its natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever properties. It also has the ability to fight bronchitis and sinusitis, help heal stomach ulcers, and repair body tissues. It contains natural collagen that stimulates the immune system and detoxifying elements that stimulate kidney function and help purify the blood. Who'd say!

Papaya: This is a powerful detoxifying and healing fruit. It has been documented by the University of Florida that papaya has anti-cancer effects and against tumors of the cervix, breast, liver, lung and pancreas. It has plenty of Vitamin C, E, and beta carotenes, which help reduce inflammation. Papaya leaf tea is also very good for these purposes.

Grapefruit: It is rich in antioxidant tannins and flavonoids that also help fight free radicals. It is also good for alkalizing the body.

The fruits of the forest: I love blackberries! They have many more antioxidants than their brothers and sisters. These strengthen the immune system and help fight free radicals introduced into the body from exposure to smoke, stress, toxins, and pesticides.

Kiwi: Contains twice the amount of vitamin C as oranges, more fiber than apples, and more potassium than bananas. Kiwifruit works like aspirin but without the side effects, and also helps reduce damage from oxidative stress to DNA, and has the ability to help damaged cells.

Lemon: Although it is an acidic fruit, in the body it acts as an alkalinizer that helps regulate pH. It serves to counteract the effects of acidity on the body and is rich in vitamin C. It also helps with the assimilation and absorption of the properties of green leafy vegetables.

Guava: Contains more of the antioxidant lycopene that fights cancer than any other fruit or vegetable. It is truly wonderful!


All green leafy vegetables, such as spinach or kale: are alkalizing, purify the blood, and contain chlorophyll. They are also rich in protein, calcium, iron, and folic acid, all essential for maximum health. They also help stimulate the body's detoxification enzymes.

Broccoli: Your body will thank you if you incorporate them into your food daily. Vegetables from this family (cabbage, brussels sprouts, etc.) help break down cell walls to repair damage and speed up the removal of toxins from the body. They have the ability to reduce carcinogens, kill cancer cells, and help prevent the growth of tumors.

Asparagus: They are a powerful antioxidant that have anti-fungal and antiviral properties. They are also an effective natural diuretic and help balance insulin levels in diabetics.

Beets: It's incredibly addictive! It is sweet, thick and smooth. Its combination of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties makes it popular for reducing the risk of many types of cancer; one of its pigments slows the growth of tumor cells. It also helps increase blood flow to help with detoxification of the body. Tip: By adding the beet leaves to your juices you will be adding iron, calcium and beta-carotene.

The carrot: It is full of beta-carotene that our body converts into vitamin A. Beta-carotene also helps with the production of collagen that leads to healthier skin. The carrot contains calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber and vitamin C. It is naturally sweet, so it can always be exchanged for apples in juices and obtain better properties.

Shiitake mushroom: Its high lentinan content keeps our immune system strong and reduces the risk of infection.

Ginger: Helps improve the absorption and assimilation of essential nutrients in the body. It is also good at relieving cramps, improves digestion due to its anti-inflammatory properties, and helps cleanse the sinuses. It works wonders!

Dandelion: Helps the digestive system eliminate toxins and excess salt from the kidneys. It has a good amount of calcium, iron, fiber and potassium. It also gives good flavor to a ginger tea or a pineapple juice with cucumbers.

Detox Juice Recipes:

Fountain of Youth: Kale, Spinach, Cucumber, Celery, Lemon, or Ginger. You can add apples or carrots to make it sweeter. This juice increases defenses and helps strengthen the immune system. It will also instantly fill you with energy.

Tropical forest: fruits of the forest, banana, spinach, coconut water and chia seeds. Spinach will change the color of your smoothie, but not the flavor! Get all the vitamins and antioxidants in this combination in a delicious way.

Reddish: beets, carrots and ginger. It is ideal for fighting colds and eliminating toxins.

Namaste: pineapple, cucumber, dandelion, kale, and ginger. Excellent combination to support the digestive system and kidney function.

Ommm … so relaxing: papaya, mint and celery. This combination of "inflammation reducers" helps calm the stomach when it is bloated or irritated. It is also full of vitamins.

Finally, vary the flavor of your juices with spices such as turmeric, cayenne pepper, or cinnamon, as well as ginger.
