[wprm-recipe-print]Celery has been long known for its nutritional value. Recently, there’s been a renewed interest in this wonderful vegetable and it is touted as a superfood. Celery juice was first introduced to me through “The Eczema Diet” by Karen Fisher. We consume it on my regular basis and my children have grown to love it!
Benefits of Celery Juice
Celery juice contains vitamin K, vitamin a, vitamin B2, vitamin B6 and vitamin C (1).
Luteolin, which is found in celery, may provide some health benefits. There’s some evidence showing celery can reduce inflammation and lower allergic responses. This might be helpful people with asthma and rhinitis. (2), (3)
Make sure to wash the celery thoroughly. Celery has a reputation for being one of the “dirty dozen” foods due to pesticides. Organic celery should be washed thoroughly as well but there are fewer concerns of pesticide.
Also, when you start juicing, start with adding pears. The pears are softer so the fruit tends to clump. After the pears are juiced, add celery. Since celery is bulkier and has more fibers, it will push out the residual clumps of pear fruit into the juicer.
I think celery juice is very delicious and easy to make. Some people had concerns of the bitter taste for children. Adding pear to provide some sweetness makes it more palatable.
How to Make Celery Juice
First – thoroughly wash celery
Wash the pears
Prepare the ingredients
Cut the ingredients into small pieces
Celery Juice Recipe
Recipe for making delicious celery juice
- 1 stalk celery
- 2 x pears
Wash the celery and pears thoroughly in water
Peel the pears
Cut the celeries in small pieces (this ensures that the juicer continues to juice smoothly, if the pieces are too big, it can obstruct the mechanism and jam the machine)
Put the ingredients into the juicer
Pro tip- first add the pears. The pears are softer so the fruit tends to clump. After the pears are juiced, add celery. Since celery is bulkier and has more fibers, it will push out the residual clumps of pear fruit into the juicer.
Catch the juice in a jar
You can either consume after it’s freshly juiced or store in a jar for another time.
If you don’t like pears, you can take it out and use only celery. It’s up to you. Some people like the celery juice only and don’t want any sweet flavors.
