We’ve had a juicer in the house for about a year now and it’s seen some good use. Wife hasn’t been too well lately and we had a few extra apples in the house so I said I’d make her a nice healthy juice.
Now don’t get me wrong, this isn’t a simple 2 minute job; there’s setting up to do, food prep, juicing and then the cleaning of the machine. However, what you end up with is a very healthy glass of juice that tastes very nice indeed.
- 3 gala apples
- 2 medium carrots
- Thumb sized piece of ginger
Method of Preparation:
- Prepare your ingredients: Core the apples then chop them and the carrots into pieces small enough for the juicer to manage. Peel the ginger and chop that into small pieces too.
- Whack it all in the juicer and make juice
What you can see in the picture above is the result, of course you get your juice but you also get the processed remains of your ingredients. These can be passed through the juicer again to get as much juice out of them as possible, it’s really up to you. All the recipes you see will work the same and there are tons of juice recipes out there; you know what you like so why not try a few of your favourites together and see how it turns out?
The juicer we use is the L’Equipe Omni Juicer which is a single auger juicer, I won’t go into the specifications of it (you can find information on this and various other units here) but just know that it will get through most fruit and veg and it also has homogenising functions for making purées, nut butters, frozen fruit ice creams and for extruding noodle dough.
