My Favourite Juice Mixes

My partner and I bought a fruit juicer last year and really got into it…for about a month. Well to be fair, we did move overseas for a while so weren’t able to bring the fruit juicer with us. But since moving back we only started using it again this month, and yes this month meaning the first day of the month. Making fresh fruit juice mixes is really fun, and obviously a super healthy and delicious treat when made properly. Here are some of my favourite juice mix recipes (you can edit the recipes with more or less of each ingredient depending on your palate) and some tips for you new fruit juice makers out there.

 

 

 

Tips before you begin:

  1. Wash your fruit and vegies well before using them, some people even like to soak their ingredients overnight so as to get out any chemicals or pesticides that some farmers use.
  2. Follow a certain order of putting in your fruit and vegies. Remember the soft ingredients first and slowly, for example putting in your berries first then the harder stuff.
  3. If you want to store your juice, add 2 drops of lemon juice to help its freshness last longer and stay the right colour
  4. Serve your fruit juices chilled or over ice for the best taste results
  5. Add water if needed to make a larger quantity without have to juice more
  6. You can dilute it if it feels a little too strong with water, apple & celery. Strong examples include broccoli and beetroot
  7. Drink at maximum 3 glasses until your body gets more used to it per day.
  8. Read the instructions given with your fruit juicer machine as there are different models which will vary in features, by learning how to use yours properly you’ll be able to make the best juices
