Love juicing or keen to give it a go for the first time? Then read on because I’m very excited to be offering the chance to win a Sage by Heston Blumenthal Nutri Juicer on the blog.
Now I know juicing, and in particular juicing for kids, can be a bit of a controversial subject. A lot of it stems from the amount of sugar fruit contains in the form of fructose. So what’s the difference between eating fruit and drinking its juice? Well the issue arises as a result of how much fruit it takes to make one serving of fruit juice. A small child could easily drink the juice of 6 or 7 oranges but it’s highly unlikely they would be able to eat that amount of fruit in one sitting.
For this reason I always encourage parents to juice both fruit and vegetable together, which not only increases the amount of different nutrients being consumed, but keeps the sugar levels low as well. My favourite juice to whizz up for the kids is this Carrot & Orange Juice. This immune boosting juice contains only half an orange per serving and is packed full of Vitamins A and C, along with the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger if you chose to include that too.
For my Carrot & Orange Juice recipe I simply juiced together:
- 8 carrots
- 1 orange, peeled
- optional: 1/2 cm fresh ginger
The juice took literally seconds to make in my Sage by Heston Blumenthal Juicer which extracts on average 70% of nutrients from fruit and veg. Speed is everything when it comes to juicing. To keep vitamins and nutrients intact, you need to juice quickly and evenly so you don’t push heat and air into the cells. The extra wide feed chute also means you can juice bigger fruit and vegetables, so whole apples can fit down the chute without having to cut them first.
All in all this is a fantastic juicer and certainly far superior to the cheaper alternative I had before. I have used it on average 3 or 4 times a week since I have received it has been a great way to get some extra nutrients into my family without having to battle with them to eat their veggies.
