The humble lettuce often gets tossed aside as garnish on a plate. This is a shame because they are packed with nutrients, full of living water and perfect for juicing.
I named this juice 'lettuce in' because it helps lift depression, thin the blood and open up the heart. I specifically used the heart of the lettuce and celery to signify this meaning.
This juice is a great lunchtime juice. Super hydrating, a little bitter and sour taste, perfect if you don't like juices that are too sweet.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cos lettuce hearts
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 celery heart
  • 2 red apples
  • 1/2 lemon

Preparation

Cos Lettuce
  • Cut into half and then into quarters and then in half again
  • Juice in handfuls
Cucumber
  • Cut into chunks to fit down the chute
  • Juice with skin on
Celery 
  • Chop into small thumb size pieces across the stalks (this shortens the long stringy cellulose fibre and stops it wrapping around the press)
  • Juice in handfuls at a time
Lemon
  • Remove stickers and cut off any hard end points
  • Slice lemons into rounds with skin on to give more flavour and get more juice from each lemon.
Apples
  • Remove the stems and remove any stickers
  • Juice apples whole with skin and seeds.
  • Cut in half or quarters if too big to fit into the wide chute.

Instructions
 

  • Start making this juice with the cucumber. Add 2 or 3 pieces at a time and let them press through before adding more.
  • Next juice the lettuce. You will need to use the pusher to help push the leaves down onto the press.
  • Next juice the celery. Add handfuls at a time.
  • Add the lemon slices next because they will help push the celery fibres through the juicer.
  • Finish with the apples, pop them in whole at let the juicer press them through.
