Celery Juice

If you have a bunch of celery, one of the great ways to use it is to make celery juice! Drinking celery juice is hydrating, alkalizing, and nutritious. It's also really easy to make at home, either in a juicer or a blender.

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch celery (~10 stalks)

Instructions

Celery Juice (in a juicer)

  • Separate the celery stalks. If using a whole celery bunch, cut off the base the separate the stalks. Keep the leaves. Then wash the celery thoroughly.
  • Juice. Feed the celery stalks through the feeding tube of the juicer, using a tamper as needed.
  • Store. Leftovers keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days though best when fresh. The juice will separate as it sits, which is completely normal. Just give it a good stir before serving.

Celery Juice (in a blender)

  • Separate the celery stalks. If using a whole celery bunch, cut off the base the separate the stalks. Keep the leaves. Then wash the celery thoroughly.
  • Chop the celery. Cut the celery stalks into thirds. The smaller the celery pieces, the easier they will be to blend. 
  • Blend. Add the celery stalks into a blender and blend on high until smooth. Use a tamper to push the celery down into the blade. I don't ever have to add any water when making celery juice in my Vitamix. However, if you don't have a high-speed blender that comes with a tamper, you might need to add a little bit of water, up to ¼ cup/60 ml, to help the blending process. If your blender is struggling, use the pulse function first to allow the blade to engage the celery. Celery is quite fibrous, so the blend will never be completely smooth, but there should be no large pieces left. The juice will look like a thick smoothie at this point.
  • Strain. Pour the content of the blender into a nut milk bag placed over a pitcher or a bowl. Using your hands, squeeze the nut milk bag to get as much juices out as possible. You can also use a fine mesh strainer and press on the solids with the back of a spoon.
  • Store. Leftovers keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days though best when fresh. The juice will separate as it sits, which is completely normal. Just give it a good stir before serving.
