3. Get Every Last Drop

To make the most of the oranges, instead of squeezing them, remove their peels and chop them up into big chunks. Don’t worry about the seeds too much.

Place the orange bits, cucumber and apple inside the blender or food processor.

5. Add any random green leaves

I used beetroot leaves in this juice, as they are usually neglected and thrown away — but they are yummy!

Don’t toss the celery leaves, blend them in!

To make it sweeter I added two chopped dried prunes, which are both sweet and savory.
