Can You Make Celery Juice in a Blender? Yes – Here’s How!Top of the List
Celery juice is certainly enjoying its moment among health nuts. But the founder of the global celery juice movement, medical medium Anthony William, has been championing its benefits for decades! If you’re ready to start drinking it at home, juicers come in handy – but can you make celery juice in a blender? We hit the kitchen with chef and nutritionist Teresa Hansen who says yes, you can! Read on to learn how to make celery juice in a blender.
1. Benefits of Celery Juice
Before we dive into how to make celery juice in a blender, let’s highlight some of its health benefit. “[It’s] full of nutrients, vitamin A, vitamin C, folate, [and] a full profile of electrolytes including magnesium, calcium, sodium, and potassium,” says chef Teresa. “It’s great for dehydration – definitely a good start to the morning to make sure you’re hydrated for the day.” It also helps reduce inflammation and boost immunity thanks to all its richness in vitamin C.
2. Can You Make Celery Juice in a Blender?
So now we know about its powerfully beneficial side effects – but can you make celery juice in a blender? The answer is yes! If you don’t have a juicer at home, Teresa says you can you absolutely make it in an average blender. Simply start by chopping off the end parts, and rough chop the rest before throwing it into the blender. Then, to turn all that pulpy green mush into juice, you’ll need to strain it. You can use a mesh straining bag, or if you have a metal strainer at home, that’ll l work too.
3. How Much Should I Drink?
So, how much celery juice should you drink to reap the benefits? “One bunch of celery will make about 16 oz. or about two cups of celery juice,” says Teresa. She recommends drinking it first thing each morning on an empty stomach. That’s because the nutrients in the juice will absorb better when there’s nothing in the stomach to dilute it.
