4 Cleansing Liquid Recipes

Vanessa Packer — founder of bespoke fitness experience ModelFit — is quite the expert when it comes to cleanses. In fact, when she gave us the ultimate three-day full body cleanse, some of the best recipes in it were juices and smoothies. The good news: You don’t have to be on a cleanse to consume them.

We are always looking for new and inventive ways to get our daily fix of fruits and veggies, and one of the best options is in liquid form. We know your schedules are as busy as ours Potatoheads, and sometimes there is no other choice than to have a liquid snack or meal on-the-go – and that’s when Vanessa’s tips will come in handy. Scroll through below for four amazing liquid recipes from Vanessa Packer.
