Do you ever get your mind stuck on something? Celery? Odd, I know, but about 10am and a cup and a half of coffee into my day, I wanted something cold, celery-y, and citrusy. And from this, a celery and apple lemonade was born.
Celery is mostly water, but don’t be fooled. It helps lower blood pressure, boosts your immune system, helps with bloating (reason #2 I wanted some), and is delicious as refreshing. Besides sugar and fatty foods, often times when you are craving something-it’s because your body needs it? I said often times, that craving you had for salty popcorn topped with chocolate was not your body talking. It was your stomach. Anyway, back to the juice!
Not too sweet, refreshing, and satisfying this juice will definitely be on my rotation (especially when I have leftover celery from eating hummus). I soaked all the ingredients in warm water, vinegar, and baking soda before blending them.
5 stalks of celery (leaves includes), roughly chopped
1 apple, roughly chopped
Juice of 3 lemons
Juice of 1 orange
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
Ginger (I didn’t have on hand-but I will next time for a nice bite)
