How to Juice Lemons 

Method 1 - Using an electric juicer

Lots of people have asked if you can use your juicer for whole lemons and the answer is simply yes! The beauty of a juicer means next to no preparation at all..

1) Always start by washing your fruit or veg when juicing. I would also advise using unwaxed lemons when juicing to keep your recipe as chemical free as possible

2) Roll the lemon on your worktop for 20 seconds to make it super juicy 

3) Sometimes you may first have to cut the lemon in half so that it will fit through the shoot but there is no need to peel the lemon

4) Simply chuck into the juicer
