This lovely juice recipe comes to us from Kate Magic. A quick note: if you’re not able to find chicory, you could substitute with dandelion greens or mustard greens.

If Jesus was alive today, he’d be running his own juice bar, no question. He’d be turning water into green juice, and never mind the miracle with the loaves and fishes, it would be the miracle of the avocados and blueberries.
- 1 head celery
- 1 cucumber
- 2 heads chicory (aka curly endive)
- 1 small bunch parsley
- 1 ruby grapefruit
Chop everything small enough to fit into your blender or juicer. Here’s an ecstatic juicing tip for you: we think juicers were designed by men who cared very much for the nutritional quality of their juice but weren’t the ones who were actually going to be making the juice every day, and WASHING THE BLOODY JUICER afterwards. We don’t think they gave much thought to the practicalities of juicing day in, day out, for decades.
But being Ecstatic Beings, we have given it lots of thought.
And now we both use blenders and juice bags. Maybe the nutritional quality is a little inferior to that of juice made in a twin gear. But we don’t think it matters because now we drink much more juice, and spend less time making it, leaving us free to follow more ecstatic pursuits than washing up.
So we would suggest blending everything up together. Put the grapefruit and cucumber in the bottom because they are softer and won’t get stuck in the blades. When it’s whizzed, pour into a milk bag and hang from a kitchen cupboard handle. Let it drip, give it a squeeze, drip, squeeze, drip, squeeze and drink.
- Serves one ecstatic being or two people who just want to be moderately happy
- Takes 10 mins if you use the ecstatic blender method or 30 if you’re sticking to your juicer
- Equipment needed: juicer or blender
