How to Use a Juicer : Videos Below of Juicing!

Think of your organs as people.  Now think to yourself what do your organs think of you?  They are probably telling you they are not running at optimal speed and efficiency.  Or, they are telling you that you need to learn how to use a juicer!  This is because the food and drinks we consume have the most significant effect on our bodies. It is pivotal for the optimum performance of our organs that we consume foods with great care.

Studies are showing, vegetables and fruits pack the most anti-oxidants compared to any other food group.  These anti-oxidants fight off free radicals in our bodies that if not addressed can lead to serious health problems including cancer.  Luckily, if we are to juice regularly, these minerals, nutrients and anti-oxidants in the fruits in vegetables give us a greater chance from developing plaguing diseases.

So now let’s get to the good stuff.  We are thrilled to show you how you can unleash these anti-oxidants by teaching you how to use a juicer.  A juicer is so much more then just creating a refreshing drink.  It can take your health to the next level and restore your body to peak performance.  There is a lot of little tricks in knowing how to get the most out of your juicers and we are excited to show you!


Juicing Made Easy: How to Juice with Each Type of Food

Juicing is not a difficult task.  It really only takes one skill.  That skill is knowing how much of which food to put in the juicer at any given time.  Every Juicer has an entry point to where you put your desired food into.  This is called the chute.  For harder and tougher foods, like frozen fruit, nuts and seeds, you will want to put these foods in at a slower pace.  Put a small handful in at a time and then wait 3 to 5 seconds before putting in anymore nuts or frozen foods.  For fruit that has a high water content you can put a lot into the chute at once.  This is because there is a blade or grinder that can crunch and mash food more easily then foods with less water content.  With that said about fruits, vegetables are kind of in the middle.  They take a long time but you can put a lot in the chute at once.  It will not block up the grinders or blades in the juicers.  Now to the good stuff!  See the juicers in action!

Nut Butters

The best nut butters are made by Hydraulic Press juicers like the “Pure” or “Norwalk” Juicers.  The next best butter maker is the Triturating “Twin Gear” juicer like the “Greenstar Pro”.  The Masticating “Single Auger or Gear” juicers are not great at making nut butters but can make nut butter if you run the nuts through the machine over and over again.  I have not seen nut butter being made with Centrifugal juicers and I probably would not try it either.  Maybe I am wrong but it does not sound like it would work or even work well if it could.  Below is a Hydraulic Press juicer making almond butter.  Enjoy!

 

Ice Cream

Ice Cream is great!  What is even more great is being able to make ice cream or sorbets from your juicer.  The Hydraulic Juicer makes ice cream in the shortest amount of time but Triturating “Twin Gear” juicers, as seen in the video below, makes ice cream very effectively too.  Masticating “Single Auger” juicers are not bad at making ice cream but it is definitely not as easy as a twin gear or hydraulic juicer.  Look at the video below to see how easy a Triturating juicer can make ice cream!

 

Pasta

Not sure if I would choose a juicer to make pasta but you can if you want to.  Some juicers work better then others and if I was going to make pasta then I would use a horizontal Masticating “Single Auger” juicer.  This type of juicer seems to handle pasta the most efficiently.  You can make different types of pasta too.  All you have to do is put on the right attachment and you can make almost any kind of pasta imaginable.  Take a look below at how great this juicer is at cranking out home made pasta.

 

Juices

Now to the juicing.  Many people get into juicing because of the health benefits.  The most common are to lose weight, detox or obtain incredible amounts of nutrients and minerals without having to eat large amounts of food.  Whatever your reason to start juicing, just start!  Juicing really does improve your body, mind and quality of being.  However, not all juices are created equal.

In my opinion, the best quality of juice is made from the Triturating “Twin Gear” juicer.  I say this because out of all the other juicers, the Triturating juicer is the best at keeping oxygen away from the food being juiced.  The less oxidation involved during the juicing process means that you can have a more nutritious drink.  You are also able to store juice made from a Triturating juicer longer in the fridge then any other juicer.  See it in action below! The 2nd video is of the more known juicer, a Centrifugal juicer.  It produces juice the in the shortest amount of time.

Baby Food

Yes, even baby food can be made with juicers.  There is not a particular juicer that I have seen that makes baby food better then any other juicer.  Again, I would stay away from the Centrifugal juicers when it comes to baby food.  The Centrifugal juicers are really only used for extracting juice from produce.  All other juicers can produce baby food.  Look below to see this vertical Masticating “Single Auger or Gear” juicer at work.

Salsa

Salsa is by far one of my favorite snacks.  I love eating it at basically anytime of the day.  Normally I make my salsa with a food processor but it comes out a little too fine sometimes for my liking.  For chunkier salsa, the best juicer to use is a Masticating “Single Auger” horizontal juicer.  The texture is great and it comes out chunky.  Not only does it come out chunky but the ingredients are blended together well.  Check out the video below to see how awesome this salsa turns out!

 

10 Easy Steps on How to Use any Juicer

 

  1. Choose the best juicer for the job
  2. Rinse your vegetables and fruits
  3. Prep the Vegetables to fit in your juicing chute
  4. Prep bowls to catch the pulp and Juice
  5. Attach your juicer with the proper attachment for your desired outcome
  6. Alternate fruits and veggies if you are not Juicing one type of produce
  7. Load food into the juicing chute at the right pace
    1. This all depends on the type of juicer
    2. Generally, fruits and vegetables can be put in the chute with large quantities at a time
    3. Nuts and frozen produce should be put in at a slower rate to protect the juicer’s gears
  8. Push food down the chute with your plunger but do not force it down too hard
  9. Monitor your juice catching bowl to ensure the juice is falling where it should
  10. Enjoy Your Juice, Pasta, Nut Butter ect!



Now that you Know How to Juice, What is the Best Juicer for you?

I hope that you enjoyed each video.  Personally, I have spent all week looking at all of the different juicing videos in amazement.  It truly is spectacular how many different functions a juicer can accomplish.  The only juicer I knew was the centrifugal juicer that my parents own.  That is the most recognizable juicer.  It is the fastest at extracting juice from produce.  Juice usually comes gushing out of the juicer at such a high rate.  If you want juice fast then the centrifugal juicer is for you.

However, you will not be able to do all of the different juicing techniques as shown above with the centrifugal juicer.  In this case, you will want to look at the 3 more advanced juicers.  Those are the Masticating “single auger” juicers, Triturating “twin gear” juicers and the Hydraulic Press juicers.  These juicers can accomplish all of the neat feats shown above.  Pretty soon I will have a complete break down of the advantages and disadvantages from these 4 popular types of juicers.  That way, you the reader can make an informed decision on what juicer will be the best option for you and your household.

  1. No doubt about it anti-oxidants are crucial to health, especially in these times of need with the CORONAvirus! Seriously, I am on the lookout for the best ingredients and the best methods for doing so. Juicing is wonderful as it incorporates those Vitamin C’s that should not be forgotten. Baby food is an area that I would consider to be most paramount. I hope you continue to provide valuable information in this area, and hope that we can continue to provide the ingredients necessary to uphold such a beneficial diet.

  4. Well this is a juicer’s paradise.  It contains an absolute plethora of things you can juice, which vegetables, which is the best juicer with great video’s to add to the mix (no pun intended).  There is something here for everyone from young to old.  I have been juicing since I was young but we have nothing like the equipment there is today, the choice is far better.

    I think that in the current wave of viruses, the more you can arm your body against the invading virus the better you will be in mind, body and soul.  This whole site cannot be faulted.

    I did get an advert up for flying from Southampton to Bordeaux which you now cannot do, but that’s not the fault of the site owner.

  5. Great article, information like this is much needed in today’s society. The old saying that our food is our medicine can never be more true in today’s modern society. The food industry is mostly for profit, feeding people whatever makes the highest margins regardless of the potential health risks it may cause. Juicing is a great way to feed our bodies with the nutrients it needs. It also gives our digestive system a break from eating solid foods and our body’s are able to absorb it much faster. Great information, I will be passing this around on all of my other social media accounts.

  17. Hi Eric,

    Wow, I didn’t know that juicers have so many uses! Thank you for your post – it’s an eye-opener for me. Also, thank you for introducing and reviewing several juicers, that’s also good to know.

    Nut butter, ice cream, baby food – it all sounds great. I love fresh juices, but I’ve heard that because juicing removes fruit fiber, juices are actually not healthy in the amounts of over 150 ml per day as they contain ‘free sugars”. Is this true?

    Best,

    ~ Julia

    • Really good question Jewelia.  I did hear that repeatedly throughout the last week of me reading articles and watching various YouTube videos regarding the removal of fiber.  I only heard it as a positive when it came to juicing.  Nobody ever had mentioned the removal of fiber as a con.  I also have not heard of “free sugars”.  I will definitely look into this.  I have only heard such great things about juicing because of the extraction of minerals and nutrients in their purest form.  If I find anything noteworthy then I will reply back to this comment or write a post on it all together 😉

  18. This is a good one. I must first commend the time and energy that you have put into making this website with nice templates and finding time to write an article on everything that we need to know about juicing. The steps and guide that you have given here is awesome. Thank you very much

  19. Well I learned something today! I write a Blog on the Paleo diet and of course dairy is Taboo but nuts are ok (in moderation) So I have to confess to not having known before reading this that you could use a juicer to make nut butters which in the absence of dairy butter are very yes for Paleo.

    The problem with manufactured nut butters is that they are quite expensive and usually full of additives and other none desirable ingredients unless you buy them from the likes of a farmers market.

    You have inspired me!

    Hamish

    • Correct Hamish.  A lot of store butters do have a lot of extra stuff added to them.  Making our own food is the way to go.  I too will try an upgrade to high end juicer so that I can access more food from whole foods.  Thank you for the comment Hamish.

  20. Hi, it is a great and nice feeling to know that someone will create a great website like this and also create a write up on an article like this to help us with useful information about juicing. The use of nursing butter is new to me and I am glad that the steps you provided are easy. Thank you
