Most green juices on the market are sneakily loaded with sugar from too much fruit, fruit juice, or fruit concentrate, which can cause blood sugar spikes, inflammation, and weight gain. This Cucumber Lime Celery Juice is made with hydrating green veggies and lime, keeping sugar content low, while providing your body with vitamin C, chlorophyll, and antioxidants to boost your immune system.
What (your ingredients):
1 large cucumber
4 celery stalks, rinsed
2 cups cold water
How (your directions):
Slice the cucumber into 4 large chunks and add to a highspeed blender.
Chop each celery stalk into 2-3 pieces and add to the blender.
Squeeze the juice of one lime into blender. Add 2 cups of cold water.
Blend on high for 1 minute.
Place a nut milk bag into a pitcher. Pour cucumber lime celery juice through the nut milk bag, and squeeze the bag until all the juice is in the pitcher and only the pulp remains in the nut milk bag.
Enjoy immediately or store in fridge for a day to be enjoyed later!
Why (the science): Green juices do not contain fiber, healthy fats, or protein- so don’t replace meals with them. However, this green juice provides an additional way to hydrate and helps you get more antioxidants in your body between balanced meals!
