CELERY CUCUMBER PINEAPPLE SMOOTHIE RECIPE
Celery juice is all the rage! Celery contains phytochemicals that can help relax the tissues that make up the artery walls, which increases blood flow and lowers your blood pressure. The flavonoids found in celery have amazing anti-inflammatory properties and may be able to help prevent chronic diseases and lower oxidative stress. This smoothie gives you the benefits that celery juice has to offer, but also retains celery’s high fiber content for double the goodness. Plus, cucumbers and pineapples are delicious, low in calories and loaded with antioxidants, too. This recipe is TKM APPROVED!
