    The sugar from the banana helps. Getting smoothies to taste pleasant is a challenge, no?

    I have visions of stringy celery clogging up my blender. I can't imagine much benefit to adding it to a smoothie, but whatever works for you, go for it.

    I can't imagine those two tastes together, let alone juicing them.

    I was a raw vegan for a while (not the Freelee type) and enjoyed all manner of smoothies of the type that combined veggies and fruit. I was a fan of keeping all that fiber, you know? I can't imagine ever once thinking to have added celery to one of the smoothies. It's not the first food that comes to mind when I think of nutrient density.

    Generally, I'm not a fan of juicing because it does remove the fiber from foods and think smoothies can be a good option for people who struggle to eat enough veggies. Hiding them in with fruit and some protein like yogurt or protein powder can make a good meal for some.

    Saying that, I really can't see what you were aiming for with a celery/banana juice, OP. Can you share what your goals are?

    This sounds horrible. Just eat your banana and eat your celery. I like peanut butter on my celery actually. Yum.

    I think of celery as adding flavor to broths in soups and stews or for adding volume and crunch to higher calorie foods, or, as you said, a vehicle for something else like peanut butter, cream cheese, dip, or hummus. I don't understand wanting to juice it.

    This is the second celery juice post. Is that Goop guy getting more traction than I thought?

    As a certified nerd, all I keep thinking of is this:

    100% agree. When I think of blended celery I think of it looking like it was regurgitated. No thanks.

    And 🤣🤣🤣

    I really like celery and all these posts are making me want to eat some, but not to juice it.

    I don't think the juice would taste bad, just be kind of wasteful. I do like fennel and cucumber in smoothies, though, and just think celery's texture would be a bit harder to deal with.

    I only like bananas plain and don't like them in smoothies.

    Back when I used to follow that sort of thing :blush: celery juice was touted as a powerful detoxifier that cleaned your blood and was a gut anti inflammatory. :lol:

    I have always hated celery. It's just strings with aftertaste to me.

    I'd rather blend a banana with some dark leafy greens, chocolate protein powder and milk!

    Is celery juice the miracle fix for 2019? This is the second thread I know of, plus its all over IG.

    Not being snarky, just asking.

    If I ever need a quick method to throw up, I'll keep that in mind. Celery and banana are the two things that are guaranteed to make me ill.

    Try adding a splash of ACV...

    Good thing dinner was a couple of hours ago... or I'd be revisiting it right about now. :sick:

    I think we might have a winner here. The Hurly Diet Plan (TM) "100% Natural and Organic Smoothie that works with your body to promote effortless weight loss." We're gonna be rich I tell you! Rich!!!

    Problem is just that I'll be stuck in a bathroom, hanging over a toilet. So you'll have absolutely no marketing support coming from me.

    But but but can I use your before and after pics, though?

    Or should I just 'borrow' some off of Pinterest like all of these scams miracle diets do?

    I could provide before and 'during' pictures.

    Not sure how useful those would be :tongue:

    After pictures might be a bit more difficult while at the ER getting an IV because of vomiting induced dehydration...
