1 head of celery (about 500g)
1 green apple (about 120g), peeled, quartered and cored
½-1 lemon, juiced
20g ginger, finely grated
MAKE IT YOUR OWN
Try adding a little deseeded green chilli to the blender if you like some heat, 1 tsp turmeric for an earthy flavour or 1 tsp maple syrup for a little sweetness.
If you prefer more of a smoothie-style green juice, remove the strings from the ridges of the celery and blend in a liquidiser until smooth. No need to strain, just serve straight up.
Separate the celery stalks and wash well. Trim the root ends and roughly chop, keeping one of the tender, young stems whole to serve.
Put the chopped celery, apple, half the lemon juice and ginger in a food processor or blender and pulse to finely chop. With the motor running, add 50-100ml cold water and blend until smooth.
Strain the juice through a fine mesh sieve into a jug, pressing down with the back of a spoon to extract all the juice. Cover and chill or serve straight away. Stir the juice well, add a squeeze more lemon if you like, and serve in glasses with a piece of the reserved celery stalk.
