- 1 large beetroot
- 1 large carrot
- 2 medium apples
- 2 large kale leaves
- 1 medium lemon
- Small chunk of fresh ginger
- Peel and discard the peel off the lemon.
- Chop the lemon into quarters.
- Chop all the ingredients ready to go through your juicer.
- Push through your juicer, being sure to alternate the harder items with your softer ones (this can help the juicing process).
- I find that pushing the lemon through last helps to clean the other veggies/fruits off the auger (the spiral looking thing). So, if you have a geared juicer, put the lemon through last.
