Juice Baby Juice

 

Meet my new baby:

the Breville Compact Juice Fountain

As soon as I saw this post over on Edible Perspective I emailed Parrish and asked if there was room in the budget for the purchase. At only $99, I just couldn’t resist! PLUS Ashley had given it such a great review.

For my first juice I chose

two pink lady apples, one peeled lemon, a handful of baby carrots, and one stalk of celery.

This juicer is super easy to use, although when running it sounds a bit like a very quiet vacuum cleaner. Which would be absolutely fine, except that our new rescue pup Hazel is terrified of the vacuum cleaner. So while I was juicing I was able to enjoy a chorus of barking, but hopefully she’ll get used to it.

Plus the result

was definitely something to bark about! Sweet, tart, and refreshing! It’s amazing the difference between fresh juice and bottled juice. It’s lighter and smoother. Fresher and brighter.

And I know I’ve read that a few bloggers write about how they can’t drink the foam BUT

I Love it!

And in all honesty, the clean up wasn’t all that bad.

It took about two minutes.

Max was very interested.

But ultimately passed when I explained that there were no snausages in the drink.

Love the picture of Max! I have a friend with a juicer and LOVE it! He really goes healthy with all sorts of veggie and my family, sadly won't partake. So, alas, I must enjoy it at my friend's house. :)

Yeah, I think I want to really lean heavily on the veggies side. I was thinking about all the fruit juice and the added sugar just last night!

Isn't Max a cutie. He's getting such a white face in his old age.

I love juicing - but I use a Vitamix. Not quite the same.

How much pulp was left over - and do you plan to use it for baking or anything?
