Slow masticating juicer / Blender
Can I make this juice with a fast centrifugal juicer?
This celery juice will not work effectively in a centrifugal juicer since the blades will not be able to extract any nutrients from the tiny mint leaves. A slow masticating juicer is required for optimal juice extraction from leafy vegetables. We recommend the Tribest 5050 or the Aicok slow juicer.
