When I was approached by Sharp to trial their Slow Juicer I jumped at the chance. I was also excited to hear that I have 1 x Sharp Slow Juicer to giveaway to a Honey and Fizz reader!
Juice is something that our whole family loves and I knew we would have fun trying out different juice combinations and it would also save us a whole lot of money as we wouldn't have to buy any juice. Juice for 5 people really adds up!
We popped down to the local market and stocked up on fruits and vegetables we could juice.
We stuck to familiar combinations but as the weeks go on I'm sure we will become more adventurous with our flavours.
Green juice - mint, cucumber, apple and celery
Carrot, apple + ginger
Beetroot, carrot, apple + mint
Pineapple, ginger + orange
Good old, simple OJ
We got in the habit of making up a few juices at one time and kept them in the fridge. They lasted really well and didn't go watery or separate. It was so easy to have them made up to grab on the go.
Putting the juice into our mason jars with the lids meant Simon could grab one on his way out the door and drink it on his way to work. It also looked cute ;)
We probably drank a juice a day as the juicer was really easy to use and to clean.
I think what had put us off making juice at home was what a hassle it was to pull apart a juicer and clean it. But with the Sharp Slow Juicer there were just two main parts that simply got rinsed under a hot tap and returned to the base ready to be used again. The 2 plastic jugs that came with the juicer, (1 to catch the juice and the other the pulp) were popped in the dishwasher.
If I didn't have a juice with breakfast I would make up a jug for afternoon tea.
You really can't beat fresh juice!
The winner will be drawn on Monday 7th July by Random Number Generator.
The competition will be run between here, Honey and Fizz Facebook page and on the @honeyandfizz Instagram page.
