Refreshing Celery, Mint & Passion Fruit Juice (No Juicer Needed)

Refreshing Celery, Mint & Passion Fruit Juice (No Juicer Needed)

This juice is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C & antioxidants. It is not just good to boost your immunity but it is rich in fiber and refreshing too. This juice is perfect to be consumed in the morning because it will keep you energetic and it is the best food to kick-start your day. I added a handful of mint leaves to it which makes the juice extra delightful and your mood extra fresh.

You do not need any juicer to make it. It can be made using a high-power blender and then straining it using a colander. This way the juice retains a lot of pulp.

Story Time

We saw passion fruit when we came to Germany. We saw many people crazy for this luxury fruit and that is why we also decided to give it a try. Since it was very expensive, we bought just one. As soon as we reached our home after our weekly grocery shopping, we took out the passion fruit, washed it, and cut it in half. What did we see inside? A joke! Just two spoons of seeds slightly covered with extra sour pulp. It was unbearably sour that we started questioning those who love this fruit 😀 We never bought it after that.

But a few days back, I passed by a farmer’s market and saw passion fruit again. I always had a good experience with the fruits that I buy from the farmer’s market. So, I decided to give this nutrition-dense fruit one more try. This time I bought two pieces and decided to add them to our morning juice. It was sour but this time I liked the taste. Since it has so many nutritional benefits, I decided to make it a part of our diet.

What are the benefits of this juice?

I am not an expert on this but based on my research and knowledge on the subject, below are the benefits:

  1. Boosts Immunity and fights infection
  2. Clears skin and acne
  3. Good for the gut health
  4. Slows down the skin aging
  5. Good for the eyes-sight

Is this recipe Vegan?

Yes. All the ingredients used in this recipe are vegan and plant-based. All the ingredients used in this recipe – celery, mint, kiwi, cucumber, and passion fruit – are quite easily available.

What can we do with the leftover pulp or fibers?

I mostly add some pulp or fibers to the juice. I use a high-power blender and it blends the ingredients quite well. Because of that the fibers don’t bother my throat while drinking the juice. But at times, it is difficult to drink juice with extra fiber.

If you want to use the leftover pulp or fibers, you can add it to the flour and make dough. It would make good chapati or roti. You can even use it to make broth for soups.

Can we store the juice?

You can refrigerate it in an air-tight container for a day. But I would recommend making it fresh and consume within 2 hours. This is because of the reason that juices oxidize when they come in contact with the air. It is not advisable to consume it after many hours of making it. Fresh juice is always better.

Easy Swaps

You can even add Amla, Beetroot, Orange, or Chia Seeds to this juice.

Ingredients

Steps

  1. In a blender, add all the ingredients except passion fruit. Blend well until it is smooth and no chunks left. 
  2. Add more water, if needed.
  3. Strain using a colander. Colander doesn't have fine mesh and that is why it retains some fibers in the juice and the juice turns out extra pulpy. 
  4. I even add some of the leftover fibers back into the juice to make it pulpier.
  5. Add passion fruit pulp to the prepared juice. Mix well and serve right away.
  6. You do not need to blend the passion fruit. The seeds of it won't bother you while drinking the juice.

FAQs

What is the best time to drink juice?
+

In my opinion, the best time to drink juice is in the morning when the stomach is empty. It gives you energy and makes you feel refreshing.


Should we drink Juice? Is it healthy?
+

I believe that food performs differently when consumed in different forms. Some nutrients are absorbed well by our body when consumed in the form of juice. In fact, every body reacts differently to different food items. Some things suit one person but others feel constipated with that. So, try and see if it suits your body.


What is the benefit of chia seeds?
+

Chia seeds are one of the rich sources of Omega-3. Our body needs Omega-3 because this is one thing that it can not produce on its own. That is why it needs to be provided by external food sources. Moreover, I read in the book ‘How not to die’ that 1 Tsp of Chia Seeds can keep you energetic for one full day. Isn’t it astonishing?


What is Amla?
+

Amla is the Hindi word for Indian Gooseberry. It is widely available in India, especially during the winter season. It is a medicinal plant, one of the richest sources of Vitamin C and has around eight times more Vitamin C than Oranges. This fruit is highly rich in antioxidants and extremely good during the winter season. It does not just help boost immunity but also prepares your body fight infections and germs. Consuming Amla is a natural way to fight the common cold and flu. Switch to this natural Vitamin C capsule, a winter superfood – Amla.


What are the richest sources of Vitamin C?
+

Following natural foods are highly rich in Vitamin C:

  1. Amla (Indian Gooseberry)
  2. Citrus Fruits like oranges, kiwis, lemons, etc.
