Homemade 5-Minute Celery Juice a.k.a. DRINK YO’ GREENS!

Hi babes!

<3

Am I the only weirdo who craves greens…

DON’T ANSWER THAT.

Celery is full of vitamins, minerals, nutrients & health benefits ranging from heart health, fighting inflammation, skin disorders, liver + autoimmune disease, migraines, fatigue + gut health, bloating + other digestive issues.

I honestly thought making celery juice was a hassle so I never really did it because I don’t have a juicer. But turns out, you don’t even need one! All you need is a blender, celery + filtered water.

In a nutshell, eat/drink celery because:

  • it’s high in insoluble fibre + water, which makes it great for cleansing the intestines, regularity + fighting inflammation.
  • it has perfect sodium to potassium balance, which means it fights bloating without dehydrating the body, reduces gas + relaxes nerves in intestinal walls; its natural sodium content also raises stomach acid, promoting digestion.
  • it’s low-glycemic – balances blood sugar due to high mineral + vitamin C content + helps curb sugar cravings.
  • it’s perfect for electrolyte replenishment after a workout, great for heart health, maintaining healthy blood pressure + preventing light headedness / fatigue.
  • it’s high in calcium, builds strong bones & helps with the dilation of blood vessels + also high in vitamin K to boost circulation + blood flow
  • it’s full of antioxidants so it fights aging in all our organs, including our skin.

BTW, celery is one of the few veggies I try to get organic whenever possible because it’s on the dirty dozen list & has no peel!

INGREDIENTS (for about 2 full cups):

  • 2.5 cups raw celery, chopped
  • 1.5 cups filtered water

TO MAKE:

  • Simply add the celery + water to a blender & blend until combined & no chunks of celery are leftover.

  • Place a strainer over a mixing bowl & pour the celery juice into the strainer.

  • Let it sit for about 5 minutes to drain any excess pulp. Don’t stir or mix the juice & pulp mixture to prevent the pulp from going into the juice. Let it do its thing.
    • Alternatively, use a nut milk bag.

  • Pour the celery juice into a mason jar & store in the fridge.
  • Enjoy! (It stays fresh for 24-36 hours!).
