Celery Juice Recipe

The easiest way to make celery juice is by running celery stalks through a juicer. But I’m going to show you how to make celery juice using a blender, as well. Both methods make excellent juice.

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches celery

Instructions

Juicer Method

  • Chop off the leafy tops and the root base of the celery bunches.
  • Place the celery stalks in a colander and rinse them with water.
  • Gently wipe off any dirt lingering on the stalks.
  • Feed the celery stalks through the juicer and collect the juice in a glass jar.
  • Add a few ice cubes to quickly chill it and enjoy.

Blender Method

  • Chop off the leafy tops and the root base of the celery bunches.
  • Place the celery stalks in a colander and rinse them with water.
  • Gently wipe off any dirt lingering on the stalks.
  • Cut the celery stalks into thirds, and place the stalks in the blender.
  • Pour ¼ cup of water over the celery stalks and blend until smooth. You may need to press the stalks down using a spoon as you blend.
  • Place a nut milk bag or cheesecloth over a jar or pitcher.
  • Pour the blended celery into the nut milk bag.
  • Using your hands, squeeze the blended celery so the juices run through the bag.
  • Once the blended celery is no longer dripping, remove it from the jar. Your juice is ready to be served.
  • Add a few ice cubes to quickly chill it and enjoy.
  • Refrigerate any leftover juice in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

Notes

  • I’ve tried both of these methods. Although using a juicer is much easier, the blender method still creates a satisfying and healthy drink.
  • It is normal for the juice to look separated when it settles. Simply give it a few quick shakes before pouring it into a glass.
  • While William recommends drinking 16 ounces first thing in the morning, I couldn’t find any clear and evidence supported reason for doing this, so I would just do what feels right for you.
