Recreational, although I aspire to juice more! We use my Mom's old Moulinex juicer. It's bulky and a pain to clean, but it works well and I don't see the point in buying a new one--yet.

Carrot juice is my absolute favorite. Fresh carrot juice is NOTHING like what comes in cans. It's delicious.

Re: Any Juicers in here ?
I try to juice everyday. I have an Omega 8004, a masticating juicer. These are the best type of juicers if you want to juice leafy greens. Centrifugal juicers are pretty useless for leafy greens. If I were to buy a new juicer I would get a Omega VRT 350. Omega juicers are a great value and very highly rated.

I want to get into juicing. I'm gonna stop procrastinating one day.

Re: Any Juicers in here ?
These are some recipes that I like to use. I like the Vitamix better than a juicer as you also get the fiber.

Please add any you use.

8 oz Kombucha
1/2 yellow bell pepper
small handful of cilantro
pineapple chunks
frozen banana
1 cup baby spinach
5 strawberries

Detox Smoothie

1 1/4 cups pineapple juice
juice from 1/4 lemon
handful fresh spinach leaves
1/4 tsp fresh grated ginger


1 cup almond milk
2 cups fresh spinach
1/2 cup blueberries
1 frozen banana
1 T flax seed

Handful of kale
4 stalks celery
1 cucumber
2 apples or one ruby red grapefruit
or sometimes both

Breakfast smoothie
1 frozen banana
2 tablespoons almond butter (can also use peanut butter)
4 large leaves or equivalent of smaller leaves of kale (I use dinosaur kale, my favorite); take the rib out
8 oz. almond milk
Sometimes I also throw in raspberries or strawberries. Yum!

3 cups of spinach
5 frozen whole strawberries
1 small kiwi or half a large kiwi
1/2 of mango
handful of fresh mint
1/2 a frozen banana
1/2 cup of water
squeeze of half a lemon
**Usually when I have this particular smoothie I no longer eat any more fruit for the day and just concentrate on raw and cooked vegetables.
