I’ll admit, I didn’t want to get on the celery juice train. My natural instinct was it seems like a LOT of work for just a little bit of juice. But with everybody talking about the benefits of celery juice I figured it was worth looking into. As it turns out my natural skeptic was proven wrong as study after study has been able to prove the copious benefits of not only eating but also drinking this magical veggie. So my next question was how do I avoid paying $10+ per bottle and make my own? I use my blender almost everyday but I rarely pull out the juicer, so I also wanted to investigate a technique of making it that I could do with the basics that are already on my kitchen counter. Let’s just say I was shocked at how simple it was to do and even more excited when I found out there are also ways you can re-use the pulp.
Making the juice is great on its own, but remember that large pile of pulp we collected while draining the juice? Now it’s its turn to be the star! The Produce Moms recently published this recipe on how to make a facemark out of the pulp and I am in LOVE. now onto the part about being able to recycle the pulp.
