House of Chards

dp_juices_apr_28-9.jpgEsrah wrote a pun-riddled subtitle for this one, but I’ll save you from his humour. What  I will say is this some sort of delicious green celery citrus masterpiece. Lemon tell you about it (he he).

Everyone I asked suggested I make juice with either lemons, oranges, or celery, so I figured why not juice all of the things. This recipe made about 3 servings.

  • 2 small bunches of swiss chard
  • 4 oranges
  • 5 stalks of celery
  • 1 1/2 lemons
  • thumb of ginger


I have never juiced with chard before, but have always been curious because I love cooking with it. If you’re expecting a sweet juice you may want to add an apple or two. The celery and chard gave the juice a savoury flavour, while the lemon and orange took away from the slight bitterness of the chard stalks.


Chard is seriously packed with nutrients, like vitamin K, A, C, magnesium, potassium, iron… the list goes on. Add in the vitamin C from the lemon and orange, vitamin K in the celery (not to mention how rehydrating it is), the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties of ginger, and, well, this juice is pretty damn good for you.
