The word detox definitely gets confused with cleanses—the super-restrictive stretches of time when you aren’t permitted to put anything in your body but juice, juice, and even more juice.

Here, we’ve found 10 detox recipes we believe in—from superfood-packed veggie bakes to sweet chocolate desserts (yes, we said chocolate) that are a breeze to make at home.
