Electric Pick Me Up Juice

  • 3 Apples
  • 6 Carrots
  • 1 Knob Of Ginger
  • 1 Large Handful Of Spinach
  • 1 Lemon

This little miracle in a glass will pick you up you're still recovering from brunch and watching kick off last night. You don't need to be hanging to give this juice a go-it's packed full of nutrients so if you feel a cold coming on it'll do the trick too.

The ginger in this one does all sorts of miracles so if you're still aching all over-this will have you right as rain in no time.


Step 1

All the ingredients should be pretty easy to find. You could swap out the spinach for anything else green like rocket for example.

Step 2

Peel the carrots and the ginger. Any old fool can peel carrots but the ginger is a little more tricky. Be careful not to waste loads of it.

Step 3

Pop the carrots in to the juicer. Don't be a messer like me and try and wedge them all in one go as they'll get stuck. Be patient and put them in one at a time.

Step 4

Fire the peeled ginger in. Ginger is super powerful in taste so don't go too crazy but it is also good for you so don't be shy. It brings all the goodness to this juice!

Step 5

You'll see all the pulp going away and it look like a massive waste (give it to chickens in the unlikely case that you have any!!).

Step 6

Quarter up the apples. Dont worry about the skin or the pips because the juicer will take care of those buggers.

Step 7

Tricky part is peeling the lemon. Use a knife to go around the outside. All you want is the juicy bit in the middle and not the bitter skin.

Step 8

Lash the lemon in. Half of one will probably do you at this stage but if you like it bitter chuck the whole thing in.

Step 9

Push the juice through the filter getting every last drop of goodness out.

Step 10

Thats it. Should be enough for 2 glasses and it is so powerful it will get you going straight away. If you had a seriously tough weekend then lash the 2 glasses together and have one big one.
