Champion Juicer, Making healthy eating more possible

I recently really wanted to try juicing and luckily Champion offered me one of their juicers. After looking at their site and their juicers, I definitely wanted to try it out.

I was so excited for the juicer to come that I had a lot of my fruits and veggies all ready to go. So within a day or two of receiving it, I made my first juice with household unit. Since this was my first time ever using a juicer especially this one and I didn’t want to mess up, I relied heavily on the manual and videos that Champion have. I really loved the fact that they had videos. I mean, I love manuals and pictures help with step by steps, but videos help so much more. At least for me it does.

The first thing I liked was that there aren’t a ton of parts (and everything was put together). So this juicer was pretty much all ready to go right out of the box if you so chose (I did wash everything though first).

For my first juice I decided on making what is called Sunset (it does look like a sunset)

2 apples, cored
1 medium beet
1 orange, peeled
3 carrots

When making this juice make sure you put everything into the juicer in the order that I have listed. For the apples I cut into quarters so it would fit easier into the top part. Push the fruit or veggies down with tamper. Never push things down with your hands.

For this recipe I was really worried it was going to have a really heavy/strong beet taste, but luckily I was so wrong and it didn’t. the apple and orange weakened the beet. It wasn’t super sweet but it was really good and it made 16 oz which to me doesn’t sound too bad at all considering there weren’t that many ingredients.

The pulp was thick that came out, which from what I learned means that we got the most out of the fruits and veggies. Do remember to have a cup or something at the end of the juicer so it catch the pulp or you may have a little bit of a mess on your counter.

Also, this is not a small machine or light. I do keep it on a shelf as it takes up a lot of counter space, but as do a lot of appliances I have, so not a big deal for me. If you do need some replacement parts, you can buy right from Champion Juicer website.

Champion has a ton of recipes on their site if you want ideas on what fruits and veggies to pair together. There are so many combination that the possibilities are endless. I have included a few that they have.

1/2 pineapple, peeled
1/2 slice lemon
1/2 cup fresh cranberries
3 tablespoons raw sugar
Juice together in the order given. Add the sugar to the juice and stir.

If you want to try out juicing for yourself, you should definitely consider this Champion Juicer. You can buy it straight from their site!
