Making Smoothies with Celery

Celery is a light green vegetable in the parsley family that grows in bunches ranging from 10 to 12 stalks. It has a mild, salty, and earthy flavor, with a crunchy and stringly texture. The entire plant is edible, including the leaves which are rich in nutrients.

People tend to hate celery in their smoothies off the bat, but as their taste buds change from drinking more healthy smoothies, as will their affinity for celery. We've seen people who hated celery start to love celery in their drinks as they slowly added it to their smoothies.

How to Choose Celery

Look for bright, light green stalks and leaves (avoid discoloration of any kind).

Feel for firm, crisp stalks that are tightly packed (avoid wilted or bendable celery).

The entire stalk including the leaves and the rougher white part is edible and blendable. Some people choose to chop off the tops and bottoms, but it's not required.

What's considered a celery stalk?

A celery bunch is what you usually buy at the store. A celery bunch consists of celery stalks that you can break off.

Stalks are sometimes called ribs.

Celery is great at adding a little more yield to your smoothie since it's mostly water.
