Chard, cucumber and apple juice

Serves 1 5 min
To extract as much juice as possible from leafy veg, roll them together tightly before putting them through the machine. Chard has a distinct grassy, slightly bitter note, but should be balanced out by the sweet apple and mild cucumber. A squeeze or two of lemon can combat anything that tastes too worthy. This should yield about 3-400ml of juice, but will vary depending on the oomph of your juicer. The trick to getting maximum flavour is to start with the more fibrous and difficult-to-juice items, and finish with the juicier, higher-yield items; they will flush through all the preceding flavour. Ingredients are listed in the best order in which to plunge.


  • 100g chard
  • 1 celery stalks
  • 3 apples, cores and stalks removed
  • ½ cucumber
  • squeeze of lemon, to taste


Prep time: 5 min
  • Step 1

    Put everything through the juicer apart from the lemon.
  • Step 2

    Adjust with lemon to your taste.
