When it comes to juice recipes, we have so many choices. By reading through the juicer reviews on this site, you know that different machines are best for making certain kinds of drinks. A common route to take is to start off with a centrifugal juicer and then move on to a twin gear or masticating juicer. I don’t think I’m a juicing snob. In fact, I still use my Breville 800JEXL on a regular basis. It’s just that, for making green juices, a machine that crushes and grinds the leaves is superior at extracting the liquid they contain. So the type of appliance that you use will determine to a certain extent the types of drinks that are best to make.
Don’t let anyone tell you the types of juices you should create. This is something that we are all capable of deciding on our own. Some people advocate simplicity while others suggest that juices with a greater number of ingredients is better. I stand somewhere in the middle. Simple and complex juices both have something to offer. On one hand, juices with just one or two ingredients are likely to be a bit easier to prepare, we can make them quicker and we can clearly taste the produce that we use. Recipes using a wider range of fruits and vegetables can potentially provide us with more varied nutrients, vitamins and minerals. Then again, the taste will become more of a blend. For many of us, this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Each to their own. I like the Juice Fiend’s philosophy of keeping juice recipes nice and easy.
