Philips Juicer And The Real Juice Reboot
2016 is a year of change for me and my family. Both John and I are working towards our weight loss goals and forming healthier habits. We are not only wanting to reduce our waist lines but are also working on nutrition, making sure the whole family gets a good range of vitamins and minerals to help beat those winter colds and bugs.
As you can imagine, I was delighted to team up with Philips to review the Philips Viva Collection Juicer. Juicing is a fabulous way to get your 5 plus a day of fruit and veg and once our new juicer arrived, we got to work testing out some amazing recipes created by Joe Wicks, The Body Coach.
For those following my blog, you will know that I’ve been on a Liver shrinking diet in preparation for an operation I need to have on Tuesday, therefore I’ve been making the juice with my daughter sylvia and John my husband has been the one to take on the #realjuicereboot challenge.
Sylvia has also been enjoying having a small juice each morning alongside her usual breakfast. All I can say is, what a fab way to sneak extra fruit and veg into your child’s diet!
We’ve tested out a range of different recipes created by The Body Coach and our favourite was called, The Cool Cucumber. John really liked this one. The apples gave sweetness and the lime and mint added a tangy and refreshing taste to the juice. I also had a taste and it really was fantastic.
Cool as a Cucumber
5 mint leaves
1/2 a lime
The machine works really great and there were no bits in the juice. The fruit and veg are crushed really fast and using the juicer was so much fun, everyone was wanting to take in turns to crush the veg and make the juice.
I have a fantastic wall chart in my kitchen which lists all the different vitamins and minerals in fruit and vegetables and so Sylvia and I were able to use this as a reference as we made the juice in the philips Juicer. The Juicing machine is fantastic. You don’t have to chop up the fruit or veg, you can simply drop the whole fruit, for example the apple directly into the feeding tube. The juice is pushed out into the collection jug and the left over skin and pulp is collected in a separate part of the juicer.
The one thing I love about this machine is that it is so easy to clean. The Viva collection juicer has quick clean technology which allows it to be cleaned within one minute. This is fantastic as no one wants to spend ages cleaning pulp from the equipment. The machine can make up to 2 litres of juice at a time which is plenty for anyone wanting to take part in the #realjuicereboot challenge.
I’d like to thank Philips for the opportunity to test out this fabulous Juicer. It’s a brilliant device and something which will be having a permanent home in our kitchen. For more information on the Philips range of juicers you can visit the Philips website.
Do you have a juicer or a favourite juicing recipe? I’d love to hear back.
We were gifted the Philips Juicer in return for an honest review.
