Our team recently partnered with SPUD Edmonton on a juicer review and here are my thoughts:
Fresh Juice is Delicious
I must say you really can taste (and see) the difference between fresh; slow pressed juice and the regular ol’ stuff you buy at the grocery store. Not to mention that you know exactly what is in your cup aka all the good stuff and no hard to pronounce “preservatives”.
Super Simple to Use
I will admit that I originally thought juicing would be a complicated process that would show little reward for all of my effort but after using the Hurom Slow Juicer everyday (sometimes twice a day) for a week my opinion has changed! It was super easy to make different types of juice and my two & three year old loved helping out with the process too.
**Pro-tip: Cut your fruit and/or vegetables into small pieces (1-2 inches) to get the most out of each piece**
Kids love it!
Not only did my kids love that we made our own juice but they (mostly) loved the final product too! Honestly though I set my expectations low and was pleasantly surprised by their reaction. All three of my children were happy to taste the different juices that I/we created and my two year old drank a full [small] glass almost every time. One day I made a veggie juice with red pepper; celery; parsley; kale & ginger and I loved it but thought there was no way my kids would touch it; the two year old surprised me again with polishing off a small glass full.
**Pro-tip: Adding greens, such as kale to your juice will change the colour to a brown shade and if your child asks if you have chocolate and if they can have some resist the urge to lie to them about said drink containing chocolate but do encourage them to taste it. **
