Nothing is better than a glass of fresh juice in the morning. Today I am sharing my favorite celery juice recipes. If you want to add fruit and vegetables to your diet, then this is a must!
Today I want to share the most important thing I do to start out every day (and it is not coffee). It’s making fresh juice. It’s been about eight months since we started making fresh celery juice every morning. And I am going to share with you my favorite celery juice recipes.
This is a glass of pure celery juice that I made. It’s simple and easy to make. The top layer is not pulp, it is foam. It’s a very healthy way to start out my day.
There are a gazillion reasons to drink homemade fresh juice in the morning. Anthony William has written plenty of articles about the miracles of celery juice and starting out your day with pure homemade celery juice. We use to drink only celery juice every morning but I must admit I would shiver a bit at the taste every morning. I knew the drink was healthy and good for me but sometimes, I had to push myself to drink it.
That is when I started adding some fruits and vegetables to our daily celery juice. And wow, it’s not only delicious, but something I look forward to every morning.
Before we talk about juice recipes, you do need a juicer to make fresh juice.
I will be honest with you. I wasn’t going to spend $400 on a juicer to make fresh juice. So I did some research and found a great solution with one of my favorite brands, Breville. I just wrote a blog post about their countertop pizza oven and I love it. So when I found they made a very basic “fast” juicing machine for under $150, I was sold.
I know nothing about juicers, other than the fact they can be really expensive. But this machine was rated very high and I decided to go for it. That was eight months ago. I should probably mention that I love it so much I bought another one for our Ventura house.
This is my machine and it isn’t anything fancy. But it makes great juice and it’s super easy to use and clean. Tap on the photo for more information.
I love that I can add pretty much any whole fruit and vegetable to my juicer. The only time you have to peel the fruit is if you wouldn’t normally eat the skin. So I peel oranges but that’s it!
We currently get a produce box every Saturday. I can use almost all of these fruits and vegetables for juice. I don’t think I would use the lettuce or endive, but everything else works.
And the best part? I always use the fruits and vegetables that are still good to eat but overripe. Even the celery! It’s so much better than throwing it away.
You can see my juicer in the background and the juice I made with celery and blood oranges!
Here is a juice I made from celery, carrots, and apples. Some people don’t like the foam, but I love it.
On any given day I will throw some vegetables and fruits in a colander, wash them and then stick them in the juicing machine. Lately, I have been using carrots, celery, and apples. You might say this is my current favorite.
