As part of my new year’s resolution to be a healthier I bought myself a juicer from Gumtree, all of £10! I absolutely love it; it is quick and easy to juice the fruits (although it is a bit noisy), I don’t need to skin or core the fruits because the juicer removes all the pulp and there are no seeds from raspberries etc which would definitely annoy me. The worst part is cleaning it, although the parts are dishwasher safe if I actually put it in there I wouldn’t have space for any dishes lol so I handwash it every day (I can see this getting boring after a while and I will stop bothering to use it).
But for now I am enjoying trying out new mixtures of fruit for breakfast and here are a few of our favourites; I try to use every day fruit and veg (the pineapple and melon were in the reduced section!) and I made enough for 2 glasses of each mix:
3 apples, 1/2 lemon and an inch of ginger
Much like pure apple juice, but with a bite to it. Very yummy!
Inch of pineapple, 2 carrots and 1 orange
Very tropical, the kids really enjoyed this one.
- Carrots thicken it up nicely and are cheap
- Ginger goes with everything, so tasty
- Don’t bother with melon or other slight flavours
- Don’t have too many apples or pears, they make the kids poop (a lot!)
