Homemade Detoxifying Celery Juice (Without a Juicer)

How to make an alkalising celery juice recipe without a juicer!! This takes minutes and is so delicious!!

After finishing my 10-day juice cleanse, I’ve kept up juicing as a regular part of my daily routine. I’ll make sure to have at least one juice a day, whether that be a green juice, beet juice, tropical juice, etc. My latest favourite has been this green celery juice.

Juicing provides a number of benefits, including:

  • Fast and easy absorption of nutrients.
  • Increased energy levels.
  • Improved cognitive function.
  • Glowing skin.

Celery juice, in particular, contains two antioxidants, apigenin and luteolin, which have been shown to reduce inflammation. This juice is highly nutritious, containing nutrients like folate, potassium, vitamin B6, K and C. Research has found that the luteolin in celery may help protect skin against UV damage. Celery juice may also help with:

  • Healing and boosting gut function by restoring hydrochloric acid, needed for digestion as it helps to break down, digest, and absorb nutrients like protein.
  • Promoting liver function, which in turn, helps with detoxification. It increases the production of enzymes, and helps in reducing fat build-up in the liver.
  • Improves digestion, as celery juice helps get things moving in the intestines, assisting with constipation, bloating, and water retention, and acts as a gentle, natural laxative and diuretic.

Homemade Celery Juice Without a Juicer

To make:

  1. Roughly chop ingredients into smaller pieces that will fit in your blender, pop into high speed blender, blend, then strain out the pulp through a cheesecloth, old clean muslin blanket or nut milk bag.
  2. Pour into a some tall glasses, add a handful of ice cubes, and enjoy fresh!
