My Favorite Green Juice Recipe: Karina Smirnoff

The "Dancing With The Star's" darling shares her daily detoxifying juice. It's for those times when doing a cleanse and taking it easy just isn't feasible.

While Dancing With The Stars (DWTS) is about celebrities, eccentric outfits, and on camera drama more than anything else, there’s another aspect not filmed: how the cast looks after its health.

All of the contestants are subject to day-long rehearsals that prove physically demanding—even to the professional dancing partners.

We caught up with DWTS darling Karina Smirnoff—a Ukrainian professional dancer on the show and, after a series of high-profile relationships, now a celebrity in her own right—at an event for JCPenny’s Xersion activewear line last week.

One thing she says she does to stay fit besides Bikram yoga, salsa dancing, and jogging at the gym? Juicing, of course. And while she likes cleansing, her schedule doesn’t let her take the downtime and naps being on a cleanse can require. “All I want to do is sleep and nap on a cleanse,” she admits.

Here’s a recipe, developed by Smirnoff and Melissa Petitto, RD, that the dancer says she drinks for a “cleanse, liver detox, and tons of antioxidants “—no naps needed. —Jamie McKillop
