Simple Carrot-Celery Juice
Last week, I was craving some fresh vegetable juice. So I got in the cupboard and pulled out the old "Champion". Even though, technically, this heavy duty juicer belongs to my parents, I'm the only one who ever uses it. And even I don't use it as often as I should. But I do love the machine! After all these years it still appears to work like a champ!
This recipe is super simple, yet deceptively refreshing! I like it very much! I hope you do too!
Oh, and if you have any awesome ideas of what to do with the leftover veggie pulp instead of simply discarding it, I'm all ears! Mayhaps this generally cast away fiber can find a second life with just a little creative thinking. Let me know!
Rinse veggies well and trim away old/wilted ends if needed. Save aside one attractive celery stalk as well as the lemon halves. Run the carrots and the rest of the celery through the juicer. Maximize your quantity of juice by running the damp pulp by-product through the machine at least once. If you like, strain the top layer of foam off your juice by pouring it through a fine mesh strainer. Pour into a favorite glass. Now grab that half a lemon and add a generous squeeze to your juice. Garnish with the remaining lovely celery rib! Enjoy!
