Cheers: The best detox drinks

Isn't that beautiful? Finally it's light again when you get up in the morning and the first crocuses are already carefully poking their heads out of the ground. It makes you feel like spring right away! In our case, in the form of colourful and healthy drinks that boost the metabolism and drive out the winter blues with plenty of vitamins. A juicer is really worth its weight in gold to get everything out of the healthy fruit and vegetables. It's amazing what you can chase through it. And the leftovers can be dried and used as a base for vegetable stock. All in the spirit of sustainability. In spite of all the health issues, enjoyment and fun always come first for us when it comes to nutrition. The latter is definitely not neglected when experimenting with the juicer. And it is also surprising how good the result can taste. So it's not difficult to integrate such a healthy routine into everyday life.
