3 Granny Smith apples, skins on and quartered

1 cup loosely packed baby spinach

1 large rib celery

Juice all ingredients in an electric juicer according to manufacturer’s instructions.

Alternatively, use a blender or food processor to break down ingredients in batches, then press through a fine-mesh strainer to separate juice from pulp.
