Celery juice has been all the rage for a while, but let's put that aside and instead enjoy a nice celery smoothie full of all the good fibers celery has to offer. This smoothie contains a mix of celery, green apple, ginger, spinach, and lime to give it a real kick in flavor. Add some ice and give it a good shake before serving for a juice-like consistency with all the added goodness of the whole vegetable.

Super Green Celery Smoothie
This celery smoothie is something completely different to what I normally share.
Less sweet, with a nice hit of zing from the ginger and lime, it really packs a punch when it comes to flavour.
You will need:
- coconut water
- green apple
I start by adding all of the ingredients except for the ice to a high-speed blender and blending until smooth.
Once that is smooth then add in the ice and blend again.
The reason for this, is that to get a smooth consistency with the harder ingredients like celery, apple, ginger and lime, you are going to have to blend for a bit longer than usual, which means that the smoothie might get a bit on the warm side (yuck).
Adding the ice after everything is nice and smooth means you still get to enjoy a nice cold smoothie.
Tips For Making The Perfect Celery Smoothie
If you remember beforehand then freeze the apple (diced) and the lime (in wedges).
This will allow the smoothie to get cooler more quickly and require less ice to be added.
If you want the celery smoothie to get completely smooth, without any bits, you can always strain through a nut milk bag, although I have never felt the need to do this.
Do I Need To Peel The Apples?
There's so much nutrition in apple peel, there is no point in letting it go to waste.
You may want to use an apple corer to core the apple beforehand though, as you definitely don't want core in there.
