The easiest way to consume Kaeng Raeng powder is added to a reusable bottle with at least 24 oz water, shake it up, and drink! The more liquid you add, the more juice-like the drink will be. For thicker texture, add less liquid. For those conducting a detox for the first time, we recommend adding juice, non-dairy milk, or blending Kaeng Raeng with fruit, ice, and water in a blender. For simplicity, we refer to non-dairy milk as soy milk, but you can use any other vegan, gluten free milk. Make any smoothie a green smoothie by adding veggies.
Users will get the most benefit from the detox consuming only Kaeng Raeng and a raw vegan diet during the detox. Conducting a detox involves removing all chemicals from your system, including caffeine. For regular caffeine users, we recommend green tea, black tea, or plain black coffee (if necessary) to help combat caffeine withdrawal headaches. Note: Kaeng Raeng is a high fiber product. It is important to drink your normal daily recommended value of water (64 oz) in addition to the Kaeng Raeng smoothies.
Kaeng Raeng is not very sweet. One serving of Kaeng Raeng with 24 oz of water contains 16g of sugar, whereas a 24 oz serving of apple juice contains 90g of sugar, or nearly 6 times as much sugar! If you are accustomed to very sweet drinks or juice, you may find KR is not sweet enough or has a bland taste. You can certainly add 4-8oz of juice in addition to water to KR, but know that the more juice you add, the more sugar and calories you are adding as well. Here is a graph showing the amount of sugar in grams per a 24 oz serving of popular beverages:
