Alternatively, use a blender to make a fruit smoothie made of 1/2 cup of plain almond or hemp milk, 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed or chia, 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, 1/4 banana and 1/2 cup of ice, suggests Dr. Oz.

The no-cook chia seed pudding is a good liver-cleansing snack or after-dinner dessert made up of 1 ¼ cups coconut or hemp milk, 1 tablespoon raw honey or maple syrup, 4 tablespoons chia seeds and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, according to Hungry for Change. Just mix and shake all ingredients together in a jar, then refrigerate for 30 minutes or until it thickens like a pudding. This mixture can last up to one week in the refrigerator.

Another good liver cleansing mixture is adding 4 tablespoons of Epsom salt into 3 cups of water, according to Dr. Clark Information Center. This is good for four servings at 3/4 cup per serving. Additional steps are required later in the evening.
