Adventures in Juicing

After weeks of purchasing Blueprint Cleanse and Terri NYC juices I figured it was time to bite the bullet and purchase a juicer. I headed over to Bed Bath & Beyond and picked up the Breville® Juice Fountain® Plus. I had read great reviews online and the woman in the store pointed me in the direction of this juicer so I figured it was the right fit.

Once home with the juicer it was time to hit the gym and head to the Farmer’s Market and Whole Foods. I did not have any set recipes in mind I just wanted to play around and see what combinations I liked together so I grabbed some Kale, Cucumber, Apples, Celery, Parsley, Carrots and Lemons.

Returning home from the supermarket I was so excited to get the juicer out the box and start juicing!!!

Greens with A Hint of Lemon
-          A few stalks of Kale
-          2 stalks of Celery
-          1 Granny Smith Apple
-          ½ Cucumber
-          ¼ Lemon

I was so pleased with the final product, just like the juices I have been spending $6-$9 dollars on each day. I am looking forward to trying out new recipes. This early birthday present to myself is going to be used for years to come!!!!

What are your favorite juice recipes???


  1. Congratulations on your new juicer! I have a Breville also and I love it. Kale and spinach are my favorites but I juice everything. Have fun! You can't go wrong.

  2. Gratz! It's a big $ saver, isn't it? I use my VitaMix more often than a juicer, but it's all green goodness. My faves are still fruit-based, but <3 my standard green drink of cukes, apples, carrot, whatever-greens with GINGER pieces!
