    Default Juicers are AWESOME!

    I stole my mum's juicing machine and have fallen in love! Nothing on a the supermarket drinks fridge comes close to fresh, 100% natural fruit juice!

    Gimme some cool combos to try. What fruit with what fruit (or veggies if you prefer) push your buttons just right?

    Juicers lack fibre.

    Juicers don't give us the whole fruit, and it is whole foods that are the most nourishing.

    Blenders give us whole foods and are delicious.

    We do need a blender of 2 or 3 horsepower like the Vitamix blender or the better Blendtec blender with the four inch blade.

    And with either blender we can make delicious green smoothies from fruit and vegetables.

    And either blender is more than a blender as it can do everything from making ice cream to hot soup.

    A 2 or 3 horse power blender is more a way of life that leads to good health and happiness.

    But I didn't steal my mum's blender, I stole her juicer! Feel free to give me your blender recipes

    I'm particularly looking for something that's good with beetroots (but not with carrot or celery).

    Yoink and yoink! I have stocked up on those ingredients (well I'm hoping cantaloupe and mango aren't necessary as they aren't in season) and will be testing!

    cool. i regularly juice-feast.

    the best fruits to use are of course organic.
    and tree ripen fruit... oh! taste bud orgasm.

    i love:
    orange + mango + kale
    fuji apples + pears + peaches
    guava + peaches
    pineapples + lime + orange + a few basil leaves... mmhmm....

    and orange blossom oil.

    juice is great, but man, i love green smoothies.
    and cleaning up the juicer is so

    so i'm a total vitamix advocate too. 3hp.
    bzz bzz. all done!

    Carrot is the most vial "food" about

    Dunno, just always had a major thing with it, my mum is pushing me so hard to just put a bit of carrot in with something else and tells me I won't be able to taste it but I gots to tell ya, ain't gonna happen! I've been a vegatarian for over 15 years and you'd have a better chance of getting me to eat a piece of steak

    The Asian Persuasion one is worth trying fo' sure but I can't get mango or lychee atm so I expect it would disappoint.

    I was so bummed I couldn't find guava's! But I have fuji apples and pears, I've educated myself on what kale is and I'm going to see if I can get peaches and a pineapple at the markets on the weekend.

    oooh lemon tree. zest!

    apple + celery + dash of lemon = very cooling

    I enjoy juicing, but found that it was such a hassle to clean the juicer afterward. Are there easier to clean juicers produced now?
