At the end of last week we took receipt of a Philips Avance whole fruit juicer.
Many years ago Mr Green and I bought a cheap juicer and we used it half a dozen times before deciding the amount of work needed to clean the machine for the amount of juice you got from it (roughly a thimbleful) was not worth the effort.
In addition, the chute was tiny which meant everything had to be chopped up small. In all honesty it was quicker to eat a fresh fruit salad!
All that has changed thanks to Philips who have designed a ‘whole fruit’ juicer that is easy to clean! They say it takes ONE MINUTE to clean this baby up and all the parts are dishwasher safe.
For heart month we decided to experiment with red coloured juices. I took to the kitchen first and made apple, carrot and beetroot juice. Take a look at the video to see how simple it is to assemble the Philips Avance juicer and find out what I thought of the juice! I must admit I was a bit nervous of drinking raw beetroot juice; I’ve only ever cooked the vegetable before…
Today we’re getting our first Abel and Cole box; the perfect partner to the juicer. We’ll be sharing more ‘red juice’ ideas and some healthy eating recipes throughout the month.
