Flavor the juice by adding other fruits or vegetables to the blender. The popular craze for celery juice comes with so many health benefits. It’s loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants! Everyone wants a swig of this healthy juice in hopes of being healthier.
Start your mornings off with celery juice for a boost of vitamins and nutrients. I love to make a big batch of juice to have with my breakfast all week long.

Ingredients Needed to Make Healthy Juice
Fresh celery juice is a perfect way to add nutrients and fiber to your diet. To boost the flavor, add green apples, ginger, lemon juice, or other fresh ingredients to taste. I love playing around with different flavors to add to the celery juice. Adding lemon juice is my favorite because it brightens all the flavors. If I make it for my kids I add a little honey for sweetness. This juice is so versatile!
