I don’t know about you, but I have a TON of apples from apple orchards, farmers markets, and the huge selection at Dorothy Lane Market. I love apple season and am always looking for new ways to use apples. Today I decided to make an Apple Carrot Celery Romaine Juice.
I recently purchased a juicer, which I love! After reading way too many reviews I purchased the Aicook Juice Extractor. It is super easy to use, easy to clean and has two speeds to get the most juice out of your veggies and fruits.
I always use greens (celery, kale, cucumber, spinach, etc) as a base for my juices. Then I sometimes add fruit to sweeten. Today I had apples, carrots, celery, and romaine in my fridge, so I pulled them out to make a quick juice.
I love juicing because the vitamins in fruits and vegetables, such as vitamin C and vitamin A, are absorbed better in liquid form. Your body can bypass unnecessary digestion of fiber and then more quickly and efficiently absorb nutrients. I always feel like I have a boost of energy after drinking this juice.
I always like to know what the benefits are to what I am eating or drinking. These are the benefits of this drink:
- Apple – tons of antioxidants, vitamin C, B complex and beta carotene
- Carrot – rich in vitamin A, high in carotenoids
- Celery – calms nerves, lowers blood pressure, diuretic
- Romaine – high in minerals, such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, and potassium. Packed with vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate and a good source of beta carotene.
I love juice as an easy way to get my vegetables in throughout the day. It’s also great for kids. My daughter doesn’t yet like to eat celery, but she will drink it when it’s juiced with apples or oranges.

So, gather your ingredients and give this recipe a try!
Apple Carrot Celery Romaine Juice
A refreshing, energizing drink that features apples and celery as it’s main flavors.
- 2 small gala apples
- 2 stalks celery
- 1 head romaine lettuce
- 6 baby carrots
Start by thoroughly washing your produce. Cut your produce into smaller pieces that your juicer will be able to process. For the celery, I use the stalks and the leaves.
Juice ingredients one at a time in your juicer. Enjoy!
You can use any type of apples you have on hand.
I prefer my juice over ice, try it and see what you like best.
This juice will stay fresh for two days in an airtight container.
