Are you seeing Green?
You’re probably starting to see Green Juices pop up more and more in different restaurants, super markets and bottled beverages. I would buy juices once in a while at Mrs. Greens a super market that had a juice bar in the middle of the store which sold for about 7 dollars. If I get this juice 3 times a week that is 21 dollars alone just on juice. Most weeks I would only get it once a week because this adds up quickly…
Store Bought Juice Cleanses
Over the past year I have even started to see juice cleanses sold in restaurants close to my house where you can choose from a 1 day, 3 day, 5 day or even 7 day. I have been saying I want to try a juice cleanse for the past year. There is one problem. A 3 day juice cleanse can cost up to 150 dollars and sometimes more.
The juices are made fresh the day before and stored in mason jars for you to pick up the day before you drink them. They do stock you with plenty of juices throughout the day and it is worth it if you do not want to juice on your own. But I never gave in to trying the juice cleanse because of the expensive price tag and I don’t have ability to have access to the refrigerated juices all day long.
So, more about this amazingly inexpensive juicer that I am obsessed with! I was searching on Amazon (CLICK LINK TO SEE JUICER) one day and decided to type in juicer. This Black & Decker Juicer was the first one to pop up and also the cheapest on the page. I looked at the reviews and it had over a thousand reviews with 4 stars, pretty impressive for such an inexpensive machine.
After some research and reading the reviews left on Amazon I was able to identify the pros and cons of this juicer. Now that I have tried it they were spot on!
Here’s what I found:
-Very Inexpensive (most juicers can run you $150++)
-Convenient and very small to keep on the counter
-Easy to clean & comes apart very easily
-Works really well for the price
-Small feed tube (which means you have to cut your veggies up smaller before you put them in the machine)
-Made of plastic
-Not made for heavy use (perfect for someone using 1-3 times a week)
-Only makes a few servings (it is a small juicer so don’t expect an industrial size batch of juice)
OVER ALL: The pros out way the cons. This juicer is amazing. Some commented saying that they had problems juicing carrots. I had no problems. I cut the carrots into small pieces so the juicer wouldn’t have to work as hard to juice a whole carrot and I had no problems. Just go slow if you are worried.
TIP: TO make clean up extra easy line the larger compartment where the pulp fills up with a plastic bag so you can just pull the bag out with all the pulp – one less thing to clean!
My second juice was a Carrot, Orange and Mango Juice.
This is a good introduction for someone who is not familiar with carrot juice like myself.
Good Morning Juice
Servings: 2 people
What you need:
- 3-4 carrots cut into thirds (washed)
- 3 oranges peeled
- 1 ripe mango peeled and cut into cubes
What to do:
- Turn on the juicer and start by juicing the carrots a few at at time not over working the machine. Then do all of the peeled oranges, then the mango. Collect in a large measuring and pour into 2 mason jars.
- Cover with lids and put in refrigerator while you clean up
- Take it out and shake to mix the juice if it separates. Put a few cubes per mason jar.
Juicing is a great way to get the nutrients from the fruits and vegetables. This juice is high in Vitamin C and would be great if you added some Ginger as well.
