Sunshine Citrus Chard Juice

Earlier this week I shared a different version of Joe’s Mean Green that had chard leaves instead of kale and celery! Now I’m using chard again because it is such a powerhouse with a very high nutrient content. It is rich in carotenoids such as lutein and zeaxanthin, and it provides a lot of juice which is always a bonus, thanks to its thick stalks. The citrus in this juice adds a light zesty sweet flavour and enhances the chard‘s health benefits and taste. Enjoy!


  • 4 chard leaves (plus stems)
  • 1 orange
  • 1 ruby grapefruit
  • 1 lemon


  1. Wash all produce well.
  2. Peel the orange and the grapefruit.
  3. Peel the lemon (optional or scrub for a more sour taste).
  4. Chop produce to fit through the juicer.
  5. Juice and enjoy!
