This Wellness Potion has it all! It’s a staple in my round up of favourite potions to make. Why you ask? Celery is the most nutritious plant food available. It has so many benefits, from cancer prevention, lowering cholesterol, controlling blood pressure, preventing and healing digestive disorders, assisting in the maintenance of balancing the acid levels in the body, an anti inflammatory, and if that’s not enough, it assists in weight loss!
2 large cucumbers
2 small bunches celery
6 kale leaves
1/2 bunch dandelion greens
1 head romaine lettuce
Wash and prepare your produce, run through your juicer. If you do not have a juicer, you can use a high speed blender. If you are using a high speed blender, you will need to add water and prepare the juice in batches as the produce will not fit into the blender jar all at once. Once you have blended the juice, use either cheese cloth or a fine sieve to remove the pulp.
**Do not discard the pulp! You can add it to your next smoothie, or make pulp cubes in your ice cube maker**
Thinking about purchasing a juicer or a high speed blender? It’s worth investing in a high quality product, as they last for years with everyday use. I have had my Blendtec and Omega juicers for 7 years. I use both several times per day. I also use my juicer to prepare juice cleanses for clients!
