It looks like juicing is a health trend that is here to stay, so whether you are just getting started, or have been juicing for a while now, we have some kitchen gadgets to share with you today for faster, more efficient, and more enjoyable smoothing.
There’s a huge difference between juicing and simply blending fruit and vegetables together to create a smoothie. Investing in a good quality juicer will make a dent in your wallet, but it is something you need to look into if you are serious about juicing. Cold press juicers will give you juice with the highest nutritional value, as they do not use heat to extract the juice from your fruit or vegetable. Some juicer brands we love include Horum and Braun.
What To Consider When Choosing A Juicer
- Cold press technology
- Yield capacity (some juicers are cheaper but they will not extract as much juice from your fruits and vegetables, this means you would be wasting money in the long term)
- Other functions or settings (for example some juicers can also convert raw nuts to nut milk)
- Ease of cleaning
- Child friendly
This might sound insignificant, but since you cannot add unpeeled lemons to juicers and they add great flavour to your juice, investing in a good lemon squeezer is important so that you can squeeze a dash of lemon to perfectly finish off your juice.
Just like the lemon squeezer, a mini grater will allow you to add spices like ginger or nutmeg to optimally spice up your juices. This will enhance the taste, but also boost the health benefits of your juice creation.
