I have always wanted a juicer because of the health benefits of making your own juice. When I was working in NYC a few years ago, I would always go to this one juice location that would charge over $5.00 for a custom juice that included any fruits and veggies of my choice. I can now get my own freshly made juice in my home without costing a ridiculous amount of money each time. I love the idea of making fresh juice for my toddler, who isn’t a fan of store bought fruit juices to begin with. I made her fresh apple juice and she loved it and now asks for it everyday! I love that I am able to sneak in a few veggies and other fruits as well when I am making her a healthy drink.
Know someone that is a health nut in your family? Maybe they would like a juicer this holiday season! I highly recommend the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor. Even though it is the only juicer I have ever used, I find it to be very effective in juicing the entire fruit and vegetable. Bigger fruits such as whole apples fit into the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor, which means less work for me! My hubby loves fresh squeezed orange juice on the weekends when we make breakfast, and we have even had a few friends over that enjoyed fresh squeezed juice with a cocktail.
The only thing I really didn’t like about my new juicer was the cleanup after, but now that I figured how all the pieces come apart and then go back together, cleaning up really isn’t a big deal, especially when I know that I am getting fresh juice with all the benefits of the added vitamins that come from these fruits. Best of all – there are no preservatives or added sugar – something to feel great about!
You can purchase the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor from Amazon, Walmart, Buy.com, and Macys!
