Celery, Cucumber and Ginger 'Juice'

It's difficult to call this one a juice, because it's really rather chewy! But it is very fresh-tasting, and ginger is very good for promoting good blood circulation. Of course if you had a juicer you could make it clear, but then it wouldn't have the fibre!

Stalk celery (about 60g, with or without leaves)
1 Japanese cucumber, or 1/3 English cucumber, unpeeled (about 90g)
Piece of root ginger, unpeeled (about 15g)

  • Wash the vegetables.
  • Break the vegetables up into the blender with a little water, and blend until as smooth as possible.
  • Drink immediately!
  • If you don't want to drink it immediately, then store it in a vacuum flask. This keeps it cool and dark, so that you don't lose too many nutrients.
