Scrumptious Celery Juice
Updated: May 25, 2020
Okay so, scrumptious and celery juice don’t usually appear in the same sentence together, but you‘ll have to trust me with this one. I’ve found a way to transform your usual vegetal heavy celery juice to something zesty, zingy and a very welcome morning kickstarter with the addition of spicy ginger.
I made this recipe up because I wanted something that would excite my tastebuds for the day ahead - and wake me up. Optional pairing notes: I suggest pairing this one with a yoga or pilates class to maximise emotional benefits. Happiness level: 900000!!!
1/2 bunch celery
4 leaves of Tuscan kale
1 small bunch of mint
1 small knob of ginger
On a chopping board, peel the ginger and roughly chop mint, cucumber, kale and celery.
Zest half the lemon, place through zest in a small bowl and set aside. Juice the remaining lemon.
Add celery, ginger, cucumber, kale, mint, lemon juice and zest to a juicer or blender and switch to high setting for around a minute or until everything is juiced.
Serve over ice and enjoy! Optional: garnish with a celery stick if you’re feeling fancy.
Notes: Drink this straight away or you can store it in an airtight jug for up to 2 days, just give it a good mix first.
