Can I blend the celery without straining and still get the benefits?
Straining is recommended to remove the fiber, which can cause bloating. The juice contains the vitamins and minerals. Blending leaves fiber in the drink, so be sure to strain for the full benefits.
Does celery juice need to be consumed immediately after making it?
It’s best to drink celery juice right after making it. To preserve nutrients, store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 24 hours. Stir or shake before drinking to redistribute settled pulp.
Can I add other vegetables or fruits to the celery juice for varied flavor?
Absolutely! Feel free to experiment by adding apples, cucumbers, lemons, or ginger to your celery juice to tweak the flavor and nutritional content according to your preferences.
