Want to super-charge your health?
Well, then it might be time to change out your kale smoothies for this even healthier green beverage – celery juice.
And you'll be in good company too, as pretty much every health influencer under the sun has made the swap already, with everyone from Deliciously Ella to The Balanced Blonde have all added fresh-pressed celery juice to their morning routine – and have all been raving about the health benefits on their social media channels.
Why celery, we hear you ask? Could the benefits really be that impressive?
This is what holistic health coach Molly Alliman recently had to say to Well + Good:
“Celery is a powerhouse vegetable with antioxidants, enzymes, and phytonutrients. And celery juice is a natural diuretic, and along with its ability to help the liver flush toxins, it also can reduce bloat.”
Many might be a little put off by the thought of consuming liquified celery, but fear not – we have rounded up three recipes that will make this health-boosting beverage taste a little better:
1. Fresh apple-celery juice with ginger and parsley
Sweet and tangy, this is a refreshing juice for the morning.
2. Blender celery juice
No juicer, no problem.
3 Kale, spinach, pear, banana and celery green smoothie
You won't even taste the celery in this one!
