Celery Grape Pineapple Blast

7

If you think celery is just an accompaniment or only belongs on veggie platters, think again!

This crunchy vegetable has been around for thousands of years and dates back to ancient Rome. Celery is full of nutritional benefits and healing properties, as well. Medicinal uses date back to the ninth century. Adding just one stalk to your morning Blast can provide your body with a great nutritional boost.

One stalk of celery has only two calories and a ton of fiber. It’s often called the “negative calorie food,” because you burn more calories eating it. Plus, it’s a terrific diuretic and helps flush out the excess fluid from the body. For this reason, it fabulous diet aid. In addition, it has super anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce swelling and pain around the joints.

If you are not a fan of green NutriBlasts because of the overpowering flavor of veggies, this is the drink for you! This Blast is a bunch of greens disguised in a haven of fruit. This celery-infused beverage is super easy and will add a little boost to your morning breakfast. However, please remember celery has a distinct flavor and can over power a drink, especially if you are not used to it. Start with a half stalk; you can always add more. I like to use sweet fruit and mild greens like the ones in this recipe to help balance and mask the flavor of celery.
