Expert Tips

  • If the texture of celery bothers you, remove the strings before chopping. This will result in a much smoother drink.
  • If desired, make this smoothie the night before, then refrigerate for a quick on-the-go breakfast in the morning.
  • Always read labels to make sure each recipe ingredient is gluten free. Products and ingredient sources can change.
