Fresh Fruit Juices: Juice it yourself!

The first time I tasted Odwalla fresh juices I was hooked. I think it was their Mango Tango that swept me off my feet on a warm spring day in San Diego. Sigh.

Flash forward to present day. Enter: Our own personal Juicer. And I don't just mean my husband, although he often does the juicing so I guess that kind of does make him my own personal juicer. Thanks, sweetie.

If you've never tried juicing your own fruit? You have got to try it.
The flavor is delicate and rich. It's as sweet as can be and goes down smooth. Like it's right off the tree.  It makes frozen cans of "fruit juice" taste like they juiced a big bowl of plastic fruit! Take that!

My husband bought this juicer a few weeks ago. I think it's called the Healthy Juicer. It uses pressure to push out the juice so there are no blades to worry about.

First you peel your oranges. Come on, it doesn't do everything for you. hahaha

Then you press down on the fruit as you turn the juicer handle.

It pushes the flesh of the fruit through one side while dripping the juice and pulp through the other.

You can either choose to keep out the pulp that has collected in the green tray, or just add it back in your juice like I did. Bring on the fresh pulp!

It's so good you might just cry a little. I did.

And the great thing about the Juicer is that you can juice almost any kind of fruit. So far we've tried pear, apple, orange, grapefruit and stawberries. I am over the moon for Pear juice. It's like putting a straw right into a fresh pear. Unfortunately, soft fruits like strawberries don't work. They only smoosh, they don't juice.

My husband juices veggies, but I can't quite stomach broccoli/celery/radish green/carrot/cauliflower juice. It's a little too "green" for me. I'm partial to the sweet stuff.♥

Today is the last day (2/29/12) to 

Win it for yourself or for someone you know!


Happy Juicing!
