Philips Viva Juicer

I do tend to have a bit of a turbulent love affair with healthy eating. I really do like the idea of it, and sometimes I really get into it. But boy can it be hard work. Plus butter just tastes so darn good! But at the moment I’m about to go back on a health kick, which is great seeing as this juicer landed on my doorstep!

I’ve never actually used a juicer before but managed to get this one out of the box, up and working within 5 mins (impressive, especially as I was a bit hungover). It’s a fairly extraordinary little beast, I was surprised at how efficient it was and how little work went into the juicing, just shove anything in really. We opted to make a green juice (recipe below) which feels like drinking health in a glass.  I also plan to use up all the odd carrots I end up having knocking around into a carrot and ginger juice.

Now onto the bit EVERYONE whines about with juicers…the cleaning. This one is assembled in a few different bits which come apart really easily. There’s a section which holds all the leftover ‘pulp’ which you can chuck away and easily rinse. The only slightly annoying bit is the actually blade/sieve…  This takes slightly more work to clean (by no means hard work though) but I’m sure this is the case in all juicers.
