The ingredients present in this Carrot Cucumber Celery Juice are a health powerhouse and offer various benefits ranging from skin and weight management to immune system boosting.
What is the benefit of celery and carrot juice?
Juicing in general is a great way to start your day, no matter what time of the year. You signal your body with great-nurturing messages and your body answers beautifully.
That’s what I like about juicing. It's a clever way to sneak in a lot of fruit and vegetables with little sips. It would take a lot of chewing to eat a carrot, a cucumber, a few celery stalks, and a ginger knob.
But if your juice them, it’s not hard to drink it all in just a few minutes' time, as part of a morning healthy ritual.
This juice was inspired by our carrot, apple celery juice recipe, and our celery juice recipe, but here we put more emphasis on reducing the sugar content and augmenting the hydration components, making it a stronger weight loss partner.
The reduction in sugar is also a reason we chose not to include an apple and went for carrots instead.
When we don't engage in clean eating routines, stomach irritation is a common problem.
For these health benefits, as well as all the cucumber juice's ability to help with gut health, we decided to make it the central part of this juice recipe.
When we have put on some weight we use our juice for weight loss which has lots of flavors and features de-bloating ingredients. I am sure you will feel healthier after your first sip!
Please have a look at our Hangover Juice recipe for another excellent detox juice and our juices for digestive issues, one is tomato-based digestive juice and the other is cabbage juice, which are great resources to have handy! And yes, they are delicious, and are designed to taste amazing!
This celery, cucumber juice recipe has only 3 ingredients core ingredients plus an optional one.
- Organic Carrots
- Organic Celery
- Fresh ginger (optional)
- Lemon juice (optional)
See the recipe card for quantities.
To make this celery cucumber juice recipe is simple and won't take you more than a few minutes. Getting this fresh juice done won't disrupt your morning in any way, and it is easily adjustable.
Step 1: wash and rinse your produce
It is important to wash thoroughly your product.
Nonetheless, I generally don't peel carrots, as they also have great nutritional value and save some time. Just try using organic carrots.
Also, you can choose to juice the celery leaves, (I usually do). It is a good way to extract value from the celery leaves that I wouldn't use any other way.
The downside is that it will make the juice bitter, and the only sweet component of this juice is the carrots.
Alternatively, you may choose to use the celery leaves on a sweeter juice such as this Kiwi, Tangerine, and Celery juice.
Step 2: cut the ingredients into dice
Note you could use the celery leaves, as they are edible but will add a distinctively bitter taste.
Depending on the juicer, you may need to dice the ingredients into smaller pieces, or just coarsely chop your vegetables.
Step 3: pass the ingredients through the juicer
Most juicers work the same way, where you insert the fruit or veggie into a chute, and the squeezed juice comes out. However, this may vary depending on your juicer.
If you don't have a very good blender, these are also excellent fruits and vegetables to consider. You may want to roughly peel the cucumber and fresh ginger.
Start introducing all the ingredients, combining the leaves (if using) and vegetable chunks, to prevent the juicer from getting stuck.
Also, if you want to thin the carrot juice, you can choose to add a little water through the juicer aperture, so it drags some of the rest of the fruits and veggies.
Although this celery cucumber juice recipe has a greenish color, I wouldn't say it is a green juice, because the carrots, change the color of this juice fresh juice.
Hint: don't introduce all the ingredients at once. Introduce handfuls, into the chute, press down with the tampers, pull it out, and keep introducing handfuls.
Vegetable drinks are less sweet in general, if you want a sweeter version of this refreshing drink, you can use different fruits. Add apples (green apples for a tarter flavor), tangerine, orange, or pineapple chunks to the juice to add sweetness, without added sugar. To add tartness, add lemon juice.
I like adding just a few drops of lemon juice, after juicing the cucumber and celery juice recipe, because, in my opinion, its tartness helps enhance carrot flavor.
Add ice if you want it cold.
Carrot celery cucumber juice benefits
Let's talk about all the celery cucumber juice benefits in detail. It is extremely nutritious and delicious, and easy to drink.
We all know we need a lot of water for our bodies to work well. Cucumber has some serious water content, 96% to be exact.
When drinking flavorless water throughout the day, adding cucumber juice or water to your diet can help you achieve the daily recommended water intake. Also, cucumber juice is great for replenishing after exercising, making it a great hydrating juice. (1)
Cucumber for Weight loss
Replacing calories from sugary juices, sodas, and sports drinks, with low sugar content juices such as this one, can help you cut on calories. Staying hydrated is great for many reasons, but it also helps to feel full. (2)
Supports healthy skin
Hydration is great for our skins. Think about the last time you spent time under the sun and didn’t drink the extra water you should have. The skin starts cracking, and the solution may be simpler than using moisturizer creams. Hydrate! Drinking carrot juice and cucumber can help soothe your skin from the inside out. (3)
These good friends help prevent and delay cell damage from oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Oxidative stress can lead to various chronic conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and eye degeneration.
Research shows, that antioxidants may stop this damage and sometimes even reverse it. Aim for vegetables and fruits high in antioxidants, like berries and cucumbers.
Cucumbers have a lot of Vitamin C, one of the best antioxidants on Earth! (4)
Lower blood pressure
Having too little potassium and too much salt in our bodies is one of the leading causes of high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease. (5)
Potassium acts like an electrolyte that helps to regulate the sodium in our kidneys caused by the excess salt, which causes our bodies to retain fluids, thus raising our blood pressure.
Cucumbers are a great potassium source, potentially helping to lower and regulate blood pressure.
As you can see, the carrot, and cucumber ginger juice benefits are not only fantastic but juiced cucumber comes in handy for about anyone!

The carrots have beta carotene which is great for skin health and inflammation. If fighting inflammation is your main goal, alternate this juice with our anti-inflammation juice.
As a cherry on top, adding ginger to this hydrating and refreshing drink provides additional immune system-boosting benefits and heart health benefits.
If you drink a glass of water before any meal, you trick your stomach into feeling fuller, and you stop eating before you normally would. Also, sometimes our bodies confuse thirst with hunger. Always reach for the water first!
Also, staying hydrated helps our bodies flush out toxins, that may make the skin look dull. Cucumbers are also high in vitamin B-5, also used to treat acne.
Hint: sometimes your headaches are just a lack of hydration, reach for a glass of water or high-water content fruits or vegetables before you reach for painkillers. When in need of hydrating veggies, think about celery and cucumbers.
