Cayenne Pepper Cleanse Recipe

Once you decide to follow the cayenne pepper cleanse, the instructions for it are pretty simple. You won’t be eating anything else for the duration of the cleanse, so there isn’t a lot of shopping to worry about!

Ideally, you should shop for the ingredients for the Cayenne Pepper Cleanse recipe before you start the program and you can buy cayenne pepper right here. Having everything on hand will make the diet easier to follow and will allow you to take the time to relax and rest like you should be doing during your detox. No need to be running around to the supermarket.

When it comes to ingredients for cleanse recipes, organic ingredients are ideal, but don’t let a lack of access to organic foods hold you back. If you can’t find organic lemons or limes, don’t worry about it! In the long run, it isn’t that important.

Now for the recipe. There are two different parts to the Master Cleanse. There’s the lemonade drink and the salt water flush. Both of these are important. On this page, you’ll find the lemon cayenne pepper cleanse recipe. This is the main Master Cleanse recipe, but you also want to make sure you check the page for the salt water flush as well, as you will need that to really do the fast properly.

What follows is the cayenne pepper diet recipe for a 32 oz supply of the drink. This will give you three servings. If you mix 64 ounces in the morning, you should be set for the day. Usually it is easier to mix them into two batches of 32 ounces each. I also have the directions for the Master Cleanse salt water flush as well.

Cayenne Pepper Cleanse recipe

  • 24 ounces cold purified (or distilled) water
  • three ounces of freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
  • three ounces of Grade B maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Keep in mind, you can use either lemons or limes. It makes no difference, so use whichever citrus fruit you prefer. In fact, you can mix them together if you like to get a lemon-lime flavor to your drink.

When selecting the cayenne pepper diet ingredients, Dr. Stanley Burroughs recommended using grade B maple syrup. This is the darker maple syrup and it supposedly has more minerals in it. Whether it really makes that big a difference I have no idea, so if you can’t find grade b maple syrup at your local supermarket or a place like Whole Foods, just get whatever pure maple syrup they have on hand. Just make sure that it is actually 100% maple syrup. You don’t want to be drinking Karo syrup or maple flavored syrup or high fructose corn syrup. That’s for sure!

For the cayenne pepper, be careful with the dosage here. A little bit of pepper goes a long way. So try just a very tiny pinch and then taste. If you like, add a bit more. I don’t think you need much cayenne pepper to get the mucus-clearing effect from it.

Now once you make up your batches of lemonade in the morning, you can store it in the fridge. Feel free to pour your drink over ice. I think the cayenne pepper cleanse is more palatable that way. Also, it really tastes best if you make it fresh daily rather than doing a week’s supply at once.

  4. Daisy Linhares says:

  9. Stacia says:

    Just checking to see if you have the salt water flush recipe. Thanks! :D

  10. Lisa says:

    If I am going to start the pepper cleanse tomorrow, am I allowed to eat anything for 10 days or do I just drink this stuff for 10 days?
    Thanks for your help

  11. admin says:

    According to Doctor Burroughs, during the cleanse the only thing you would consume is the lemonade drink, and also plenty of clean, fresh water.

  12. Jackie says:

    Stanley Burroughs has a book, that is very informative. It should be added you should drink a cup of sienna tea each night as well. This is a fantastic way to get your body healthy and feel great, tons of energy!

  13. Jane says:

    If Iam doing the cayenne cleanse , can I eat almost anything or do I have follow a diet.

  14. brenda says:

    why the maple sugar, i drink lemon and hot water with the pepper, not doing the whole fast thing. but i find just the lemon, hot water and pepper is a enjoyable drink.

  15. Emily says:

    Ifi am doing tge pepper cleanse for 10 days, do I start the salt water flush after or do it along with the cayenne pepper every morning.. Also how often should I drink the pepper cleanse per day?

  16. admin says:

    Emily, you do the flush at the same time — just do it each morning. For the cleanse drink, drink it when you are thirsty or hungry. Six to eight glasses per day should be good.

  17. admin says:

    The maple syrup is for vitamins and minerals and the calories.

  18. admin says:

    The powdered is preferred because it mixes a lot easier with water!

    This more of a fast than it is a diet. It is not meant for long term use. I would refrain from too much exercise. If you are doing a fast or cleanse, taking it easy and relaxing is the way to go… otherwise why even bother.

  19. Tracy says:

    where would I find the salt water flush recipe? I’m very intrested in starting this cleanse as soon as possible…

  20. Lela says:

    You continue the cleanse until the white coat on your tongue is gone. VERY IMPORTANT or don’t bother. Cleanse is complete when your tongue is a bright pink. Good luck ;-)

  21. beverly holbrook says:

    I was told that after the cayenne drink is done, you drink orange juice for a day, and then vegetable broth for a few days. Then fruit in the morning and raw vegetables at night. 10 days sounds very intimidating.

  22. Asng says:

    How much do you drink a day ? And how much each time

  23. Barbara says:

    I have two questions; (a) how long at one time do I drink or cleanse and how often do I cleanse? (b) will this cleansing have a negative impact on those who are on perscription meds daily?

  24. bee says:

    I have started this following my cousin. I did have a veggie salad yesterday and was wondering if this will mess up my cleanse. In reading the post am I clear in that you are to absolutely have NO food for 10 days.

    Also I have hypertension, how will the salt cleanse affect me?

  25. rachal says:

    i am trying to loose my belly leftovers from my two childeren and maybe some over eating habits. my stomach is my focus. will this plan make me loose my legs and butt? can i do ab exercises or wait until the 10 days are up?

  26. admin says:

    This isn’t a weight loss diet. It’s a flush. Weight loss is temporary. For permanent weight loss, consider a low carb diet.

  27. Hansel Gonzalez says:

    What do i need to make the lemonade drink?

  28. kelly says:

    can i not add maple syrup? or just 1/3 of the 3 ounces required?

  29. adrienne rutherford says:

    Can u work out while on a cleanse will I get dizzy and pass out?

  30. cassi says:

    i do not want to use maple syrup i think im allergic to it… will the cleanse still work if i dont use it?

  31. Sue says:

    People, get a clue! You are asking the same questions over and over!!

  32. amy says:

    if you have health issues (you are on medication to maintain something, or you have a diagnosed problem) use COMMON SENCE and dont do anything to mess with your body…gees

    I have completed this cleanse about 12 times over the past 4 years. Currently on my 7th day of the most recent round.

    Working out: Yes you can but be careful to not do anything too strenous or you will feel faint. Eating: The 1st time I did it, I did not eat anything – AT ALL! It was very difficult but doable (lost 20lbs). The first 3 days are the absolute hardest! After that, it’s a piece of cake. After the 1st time, I had to modify the way I proceed with the cleanse. I eat but only things that are easily digested (e.g. jello, rice cakes, etc). I am in the military and PT is a must so I needed something more then liquids to allow me to continue to work-out and perform; however, usually you don’t want your body fighting itself, doing double duty, trying to detox & digest at the same time.

    How much drink: I mix 64 ozs a day. I drink two, 32oz containers over the course of the day. I drink the mixture whenever. Whenever I feel hungry, bored, hungry, hungry, & hungry. In between sips, I drink water or a clear tea. My goal is to finish the mixture for the day around 7pm then do the epsom salt flush at night. Make sure you are only a couple feet from a restroom during the day. The flush really flushes!

    Health issues: As always, if you have serious health concerns, see your doc. I personally see major health benefits everytime I do the cleanse. My menstrual cycle is cut by 2 days and the flow is light to moderate vs. heavy w/ no pain. My skin is always clearer and bright. I also experience no more knee pain. This last time, I had an incision that had keloid. I noticed last Saturday that the keloid was gone and that the incision is barely noticable now. Weight loss is always 15 – 20 lb range and I feel fantastic. The cleanse will not make you lose bellyfat (ab excercises of some sort is the key for that) but it will relieve a lot of the bloating; mainly because the cleanse detoxs the colon and relieves your body of compacted waste that bloats us, lines our intestines, and makes our stomachs feel hard and fat.

    Salt flush: I use epsom salt because it is most effective and REALLY works! You have, have, have to stay near a restroom though. It tastes disgusting (no lie) but it will flush everything away. The 1st time I did the cleanse, I tried to add lime to flavor the salt flush – bad move. The metallic taste along with the lime made it more difficult to get down. Just hold your breath and drink it as fast as possible. I use 4 – 5 tsps in about 6 – 8 ozs of water.

    This is a fantastic cleanse if you can make through the first couple of days. I use a lot of cayenne pepper (2 tsps per 64 ozs). You will get used to the taste, start to really like it, and kinda crave it when you’re done. Good luck…you can do it!

    I am in the medical field and I have personally done the fast several times. I can contest to the power behind the fast. You may (after 3 or 4 days) experience some fatigue, but this is natural. Your body is going through a complete regenerate experience. Please, if you have blood pressure problems, take caution when doing the salt water flush (I use Epsom salt). Headaches are also normal, as the cleanse is flushing away all the caffeine etc, and your body is going to want what usually goes in your body. After a few days, you will feel great!!! With the cayenne pepper solution, my kidney stones have disintegrated, my heart burn has completely stopped, my asthma symptoms have lessened and the energy I now have is well needed. I recommend this fast to all of my patients!!! Remember to break the fast easily.. diluted orange juice, lettuce etc. Even now that I am only my own diet, I use the cayenne pepper “drink” DAILY!
