Rinse and dry your produce. Then prep for the juicer. Our Hurom instructions recommend chopping vegetables into pieces small enough to fit easily down the chute. They also recommend peeling all citrus fruits as they can be difficult for the machine to process, which inhibits them from being fully juiced.
Turn your machine on and run all ingredients through the juicer, using your tamper as needed. We recommend starting with celery, then cucumber, then herbs, then greens, and finishing with ginger, apple, and lemon. The apples and lemons seem to make a final pass through the juicer and push out any stubborn remnants that may have gotten lodged or stuck.
Enjoy immediately or transfer to a jar, seal well, and refrigerate up to 24 to 48 hours. Nutrients are most potent when consumed as soon after juicing as possible. Not freezer friendly.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated with the fiber reduced by half as some is removed in the juicing process. *JUICER RECOMMENDATIONS: The two juicers we’ve used are: Hurom and the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer. If you’re short on time, the Jack LaLanne model makes juice a lot faster, but it’s not slow masticating, so it heats the produce to a higher temperature, which arguably decreases some of the vitamin and mineral content. However, it also largely fits in the dishwasher, so it’s quite convenient to clean. And while we love our Hurom for quality, it does take time to prep, juice, and clean. This Breville also seems to have great reviews and is relatively affordable (but we have not personally tried it).
