I love carrot and apple juice, add a little ginger and it takes it to a whole other level. Sweet, but slightly earthy and a spicy kick to it too. It’s the most refreshing juice I have ever had.
The difficulty is the pulp though. Most basic juicers or smoothie makers I have tried haven’t got rid of the pulp, so it’s thick and separates within seconds.
Thankfully, I was recently contacted by Panasonic to be part of their blogger ambassador scheme over the next year. It sees them sending me products to try out, and giving my opinion on them. The products are loaned, not gifted so all reviews are unbiased, but I get to keep my favourite.
To start me off I was sent the Panasonic slow juicer (MJ-L500). This deals with the pulp in a breeze, and what I love about it is that it separates the pulp, which is then totally reusable. I used my carrot and apple pulp in fishcakes and veggie burgers and it works so well.
You can also use it for some frozen fruits too, to make a healthy ice-cream. Which would be great for an alternative frozen dessert or for children who love ice cream.
It’s compact and sits on the work top well, without taking too much room. It is really versatile with the type of juice (with or without bits) or frozen desserts you want to make. It’s also incredibly quiet.
To be honest I am loathed to give it back. The carrot, ginger and apple juice being a particularly refreshing treat when I have a mid afternoon lull in energy, and stops me snacking too.
It’s not quite as easy to clean as I would like. But it is easy to disassemble, and over time the cleaning would become easier, when you know which bit goes where a little more!
