WHAT GOES INTO THIS RECIPE: INGREDIENTS AND EQUIPTMENT
Ingredients: Organic celery, and water (if using a blender). Use an entire bunch of organic fresh celery. I am talking a whopping 8-10 celery stalks that come in a bunch. I promise you it is not too much and it will not harm you, only benefit your wellbeing. Organic is best but if you can not, make sure to wash really well the celery to rinse away pesticide sprays that were used during harvesting and farming. After washing the celery stalks/bunch discard the leaves as they can add a bitter taste to celery juice. This celery juice recipe can be made in either a blender by adding water or a juicer just using celery.
STEP-BY-STEP HOW TO MAKE THIS JUICE IN A BLENDER
STEP 1: Wash the celery and chop off both ends, discarding the leaves.
STEP 2: Chop the celery and add it to a high powered blender (I use a Vitamix). ONLY IF NEEDED, add up to 1/3 cup of fresh water. The water helps the celery stalks to mix and not get stuck. But see tips below as to get the maximum benefits of celery juice it is best consumed alone with nothing added to receive its healing benefits (so make sure that blade is sharp!).
STEP 3: Blend on high like you would a smoothie until it becomes a fine puree. Place a cheese cloth or nut bag over a bowl and pour the pureed celery juice in the bag. Squeeze it to separate the celery fibers from the liquid. Discard the celery “meat” or save it for smoothies, or to add to meatloaf or baked goods.
STEP 4: Pour the liquid in a glass and enjoy!
USING A JUICER
If using a juicer, add the washed and prepared celery to the juicer. After it is done, pour the juice in a glass and enjoy!

BENEFITS OF DRINKING CELERY JUICE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH
Aim to drink 16 ounces of celery juice right away in the morning and at the end of the day. This allows for optimal digestion, absorption, and healing benefits. Drinking celery juice works different than eating just a celery stalk. The juice does not have the fibers to break down so the body absorbs the nutrients more effectively and efficiently. Ultimately the goal is to drink 16 ounces every morning and evening (32 ounces total). If that seems to be too much just sip it in 4 ounce increments and wait 20 minutes before eating or consuming anything else. This is a fantastic way to start and end each day!
FAQ and TIPS
Celery takes more calories to digest than the green vegetable has in it. So your body burns more calories digesting celery than the calories consumed. When the body burns more calories than it consumes the result is weight loss.
When you drink celery juice every day you start to have clearer skin, a more positive mood, less anxiety, more energy and better sleeping patterns. If consumed with the right diet you experience less indigestion and weight loss!
Juicing celery rather than eating it whole in a stalk with all its fibers allows the body to digest it properly and absorb more of the nutrients from celery such as essential vitamins and minerals such as calcium, folate, vitamin B6, vitamin K, and vitamin C.
Celery takes more calories to consume and digest than it has consists of so yes celery burns fat. There are about 50 calories in this celery juice weight loss recipe and it takes more calories to burn that off meaning it can help with weight loss.
Per medical medium, it is important to drink fresh celery juice and consumed alone with nothing added to receive its healing benefits. Do not add lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, added fruit and greens, collagen or protein powder, water, or consume HPP bottled celery juice. I understand if you do not have a juicer, you can still enjoy some of the nutrients so I offer this method with adding a bit of water but know it does not provide the maximum benefits like fresh juicing does.
Celery juice is mostly made of water, is high in antioxidants and low in sugar which can help with clearer skin.
