You need to take your time with the ingredients in this juice.
Start with the lettuce. Go slow and use your pusher to help get each piece pushed down onto the press inside the juicer.
Next juice the celery pieces. They will help push the lettuce through the strainer.
I then grab the handful of the spinach leaves and squeeze them into a tight ball in my hand before adding them to the chute of the juice. I then do the same with the mint leaves.
Let the juicer squeeze and press all the leaves.
Finish with the cucumber pieces adding one at a time waiting for each piece to go through before adding the next piece.
Tip: after making this juice close the cap and add 500ml of water to the juicer. Let it run for a minute or two. It will clean the juicer and pick up lots more nutrients from all the greens. You can then water your plants or drink the nutrient-rich water yourself.
