This juice is packed with heart-healthy nutrients that is literally pumping iron around your body. It delivers a massive 6mg of iron (75% RDI), 415ug Folate (100% RDI) and 768ug vitamin K (640% RDI) when juiced!
The watercress gives this juice a peppery and spicy flavour with just enough sweetness from the beetroots to make it an enjoyable drink. You wouldn't know it was packed with greens and super healthy.

Ingredients
  

  • 2 beetroots
  • 4 stalks celery
  • 1/2 bunch spinach
  • 40 grams watercress

Preparation

Beetroot
  • Cut in half and then into quarters
  • Slice each half into thin slices to make it easier to press
  • Juice with skin on (you can also juice the leaves and stems)
Celery
  • Chop into small thumb size pieces across the stalks (this shortens the long stringy cellulose fibre and stops it from wrapping around the press)
  • You can juice celery leaves, however, it will add bitterness, so discard if you don’t like this
Spinach
  • Fill a sink with water and wash well
  • Roughly chop leaves and roots
  • Juice handfuls at a time
Watercress
  • Roughly chop leaves
  • Juice handfuls at a time

Instructions
 

  • Start making this juice recipe with the beetroot slices.
  • Add 1/4 of the beetroot slices at a time and let the juicer press them fully before adding more.
  • Next, add all the watercress in one handful.
  • Add the chopped spinach in handfuls at a time. You may need the pusher to push the leaves down onto the press.
  • Finish making this juice recipe by adding the celery pieces in handfuls at a time. Again let the juicer press the celery through before adding more handfuls.
