Vivien’s Famous Juices
We are always being asked what juicer is the best to use. We use various types here depending on the fruit or vegetable being used and also the quantities of juice we are preparing.
There is no need to go out and spend huge amounts of money on juicers. We do recommend, though, that you buy a centrifugal juicer. The larger heavy masticating ones are very time consuming to use and clean, and if you are only preparing juices for one person you will soon get bored of using it. You can buy a good quality high-speed juicer from most good electrical retailers for between £30 and £50.00. With all juices, to get the best results, press alternate chunks through the juicer. Stir and serve immediately. With regards to the produce that you use, keep in mind that if you wouldn’t be happy to eat it, don’t juice it! Don’t see juicing as a way of using up unused fruit and vegetables: if it wouldn’t taste good if you ate it, it won’t taste good in a juice. Always wash your fruits and vegetables before juicing. Remember that these recipes are guidelines and the quantities needed vary depending on the ripeness and juiciness of the fruits and vegetable you are using. In addition to the juice recipes, we have included a little bit of information about some of the fruits to give you an idea of what these amazing fruits can do for you, and how best the combinations work together to help you through the day.
