I cannot wait to get my hands on the latest innovation on the juicing scene – Froothie’s Juisir. So in anticipation I thought I’d wet your whistle with a preview of this amazing new gadget and a list of the fabulous juices I’ll be squishing together as soon as it arrives! If you’ve only ever bought juice in bottles or cartons, it’s time to sit up and take notice. Home-made juice is much better for you, tastes amazing and has infinite flavour opportunities with all the combinations of fruit and veg you can throw together.
First up here’s a list of my top 10 juice combinations for a spot of inspiration…
1. Carrot, Apple & Ginger
This classic combo always makes me feel energised and raring to go. The apple and carrot are lovely and sweet but it’s all balanced out with that kick from the fresh ginger. Nutritionally it’s got Vitamin A, potassium and antioxidants all going on, as well as the tummy settling properties from the ginger, which can also reduce pain and inflammation.
2. Cucumber, Apple & Celery
Green, light and ultra hydrating – cucumber and celery both have high water content so are great if you’re in need of real thirst quencher. It’s also a fab post-workout drink as celery is rich in sodium which helps you replenish any salt you’ve lost in sweat.
3. Passion Fruit, Orange & Kale
A sublime zingy and fruity drink with the goodness of kale but none of the bitterness, thanks to passion fruit having such a delicious flavour. There’s a reason why kale is regarded as a super hero of the veg world – it offers huge health benefits in the prevention of cancer and enhancing the function of the liver.
4. Blueberry, Raspberry & Spinach
A blast of berries with a side order of greens and that means topping up on your iron – great if you’re feeling a bit sluggish!
5. Beetroot, Plums and Grapes
Get with the purple food trend and juice together earthy beetroot with sweeter plums and grapes – delicious! Purple fruits and veg have a special pigment that contains flavonoids that can help keep blood pressure in control and boost your immunity.
6. Melon, Cucumber and Strawberry
Ultra refreshing for cooling off on a hot day, this is summer in a glass, especially if you opt for watermelon! Watermelon is a rich source of nutrients like anti-cancer lycopene and magnesium which is good for your heart, hydration and can also help to promote muscle relaxation and restful sleep.
7. Pineapple, Lime and Celery
Not only does pineapple give this combo a pleasingly tropical hit, but it’s also loaded with vitamin C, vitamin B2, B6 and potassium. I reckon a dash of chilli would be the perfect flourish.
8. Orange, Pink Grapefruit and Red Pepper
You might not immediately think of putting red peppers in your juicer, but they have a lovely sweetness that goes perfectly with orange and tangy pink grapefruit for your morning juice. Peppers are also a source of vitamins C and A that play a role in immune function and act as antioxidants in the body.
9. Orange, Carrot, Celery and Beetroot
Got a hangover? This deep purple juice should help reduce your symptoms as it’s got vitamin C, antioxidants and electrolytes in it. Down the hatch!
10. Pear, Broccoli and Lime
Deeply green, deeply good for you! Broccoli is a cruciferous veggie so can help support the liver’s natural detoxification processes. The pear and lime give this juice a sweet and zesty finish.
FYI Just to clear up any confusion, juices are packed with healthy nutrients but don’t forget to include whole fruits and vegetables in your diet too to make sure you’re getting all of that lovely fibre.
What kind of juicers are on the market?
Centrifugal: These are the kind of juicers that are cheap and cheerful but are a total nightmare to clean. I got so fed up with mine that it’s been permanently relegated to the garage shelf of kitchen gadget doom.
Slow/Cold-Press: These are a serious piece of kit and suited to people who want to make juice every day. These guys come with a more hefty price tag, but are much better performers, quieter, easier to clean and produce a better quality juice. You can see Froothie’s range here.
What makes the Juisir different from the rest?
Because of the innovative bag you don’t have to clean the inside of the machine at all! “I know that for most people, the hassle of juicing at home is you make the juice, spend one minute drinking it, then 10-15 minutes cleaning the insides of the machine,” says 32-year-old Leo Chen who invented the Juisir.
Entrepreneur Chen wanted to create a machine on a similar principle to the hugely popular coffee capsule machines, but with a healthier more environmentally friendly spin. You can find out more about him on Forbes
How does the Juisir work?
- Put the fruit and vegetables in a bag (reusable or eco-friendly disposable, you can choose which)
- Pop the bag in the Juisir and hit the button
- The Juisir will crush the fruit and vegetables with eight tonnes of force, the force of two adult elephants (hence the cute elephants on the bags)
- 90 seconds later you have freshly pressed juice
How can I get a Juisir?
Froothie are taking pre-orders on their site, so if you do fancy getting your name down for one you can hop over to the Froothie Website
For £579 (use the early bird code soon (EARLYBIRD100) to get another £100 off this price. For this you will receive your Juisir and 1 reusable bag with 30 cotton refills or 60 disposable bags (you can buy more from the Froothie website) and a standard 2 year warranty.
At this price it’s a big investment, but if you’re seriously into making juice every day, you’d be looking at paying £300-£500 for a good quality cold pressing juicer that will go the distance. So if you’re after the convenience it’s worth every penny in my opinion.
