Do you have a juicer collecting dust in your kitchen cupboard? Improve your lifestyle by making tasty and healthy juices. With these tips you can make juice a weekly or even daily part of your life.
1. Invest in a quality juicer.
Without a good juicer, you are likely to spend more time frustrated with food getting stuck running inside the machine, or having cleaning issues. Do some research and invest in a good quality juicer, even if it is a little more expensive. This will save you time and the frustration that can often prevent you from making amazing juices.
We recommend Hurom juicers. They have developed a system that guarantees the least friction, oxygenation and losses of enzymes, vitamins, phytonutrients and food value (raw fruits and vegetables). They are ideal equipment for juice therapy, combat modern diseases such as cancer and stabilize the eating habits of today’s life.
2. An apple can fix your juice.
One of the worst things that can happen to you is to end up with a drink that tastes a bit ‘gross’. It’s disheartening to find that you’ve just used some great, nutritious veggies, and to find that you don’t like the taste of the final product!
Sometimes you can save it by adding a little sweetener or honey, but it’s still a bit of a disappointment. Juicing is an art, and it takes practice and lots of trial and error to get it right. You will find that adding a single red apple to most food combinations in a juice can be enough to sweeten just enough to make your juice rich.
However, we recommend that you experiment and try, depending on your personal preferences.
3. Store leftover fruits and vegetables.
When you cut vegetables or fruits for food, instead of throwing away the leftovers, store them in a tuper in the fridge. You can use them later in your juices. These food scraps usually include celery, broccoli or cauliflower stalks and leaves, small pieces of potato, carrot, cucumber ends, and more of that sort.
4. Season your juices!
Sometimes it helps to add a little salt, powdered ginger, turmeric, or cinnamon to give it some spice. These seasonings usually only enhance the taste.
Give them a try!
5. Make large amounts of juice in advance.
Juicers are sometimes difficult to clean and it can be a bit lazy to use them on a daily basis. Please try to make a large amount of juice when you use them.
The key to keeping the juice for several days is storage in mason jars or any airtight container inside the fridge. This prevents them from getting oxidized and keeps their flavor for longer.
Try these tips next time you get the chance, and you will get to make a great juice!
