Celery juice. Even if you live in a hole, chances are you’ve heard about it. Because everyone suddenly seems to be drinking the green juice. And not just drinking. But, straight up swearing by it. Like it’s some kind of miracle juice.
Well, it kinda is. Celery has been hailed as a miraculous superfood. Hard to believe, right?
It’s basically become a global movement. Everyone is doin’ it.
Here’s the scoop…..
Celery juice is most powerful when consumed solo. Although I do like to add a squeeze of lemon, but I’m also a rule breaker.
Drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. Drink it straight!
Wait about 30 minutes before you eat.
Then go on with your merry day!
- heart healthy
- lowers cholesterol
- ideal for weight loss
- enhances sex drive
- great for your gut
- cleanses the liver
- darn good for the brain
That’s a good looking list of benefits. Are you sold?
I don’t know about you, but with all those benefits – I’m jumping on the bandwagon!
You can purchase celery juice in the Nugget Market juice bar. I’ve done it. But, I couldn’t do it daily. It’s not a cheap habit. And I really, really like Madewell jeans, Trader Joe’s + Target. So there’s that.
You can invest in a fancy juicer. They too are not cheap. And the clean up? Aint nobody got time for that.
So I read an article the other day about making celery juice in a ninja. Or bender. Whatever you have.
So, clearly I’m gonna tell you all about it!
blender celery juice
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 4 stalks organic celery
- 1 cup water
- squeeze of fresh lemon juice
Here’s what you do:
Cut celery into 1 inch pieces.
Pulse celery + water + lemon till smooth. It will be a juice like consistency.
Strain celery juice thought a fine colander or nut milk bag. This will give you a less pulpy and more juice like consistency.
I like my celery juice over sonic pebble ice.
And go on about your day!
I’ve been making 2 days worth at a time. I find that 1 bunch of celery will make me two servings of juice. It’s wayyy better day #1, I’m all for saving time. Store your day #2 in a sealed mason jar and it will keep for 24 hours!
Are you celery juicin’? Or are you not even about that life? Tell me!!
