What a cool way to beat the summer heat by a tall glass of raw fruits and vegetables juice with crushed ice and pretty garnishing. As I tend to juice more fruits during hot days with Champion Juicer, I need to remind myself of the relatively high sugar content that fruits carry. Therefore I would consciously incorporate some varieties of vegetables to balance up the concoction.
I have a nice Champion Juicer recipe here to help you combat dehydration. Dehydration happens when the amount of water leaving your body (through sweating) is more than the amount you take in during hot summer days. Champion Juicer’s ability to extract the minerals and distilled water from the fibers of fruits and vegetables makes it very ideal for you to replenish fluid in your body by drinking raw fruit and vegetable juices made using Champion Juicer.
Try this Champion Juicer recipe and stay hydrated throughout summer.
Champion Juicer’s Summer Spring
3 Carrots, peel and remove green tops
2 stalks Celery, discard leaves
Parsley, a sprig
1 Green apple
Mint leaves, for garnishing
Bundle up Spinach and Parsley. Push through the feeding chamber of Champion Juicer alternating with carrots and celery, then finish up with the green apple. You need to bundle up the small leafy vegetables as Champion Juicer is not the best juicer to extract them.
I have more highly recommended recipes to share with you in my juicer recipe collection.
Keep your cool this summer with a refreshing melon juice. There are many choices you can pick from the melon family, to name a few, Cantaloupe, Honeydew and Watermelon.
Melon is a common name given to various species of the Cucurbitaceae family with fleshy fruit.
Melon juice can be prepared using a blender but my personal preference is to use Champion Juicer. Champion Juicer extracts the clear melon juice very well and expels the pulp without any further straining whereas the blended melon juice tends to be a bit more fibrous and that’s not ideal as a thirst quencher.
Before juicing melon, it is always a good practice to wash the melon thoroughly as the skin of the melon may contain harmful bacteria pathogens such as the salmonella. Cut away the skin and slice the melon into segments small enough to feed into the feeding chamber of Champion Juicer. Discard all seeds where possible. Feed the segments one after another at a steady speed into the Champion Juicer to avoid any unnecessary heating up.
Always chill your melon before juicing if you want an instant cool melon juice as Champion Juicer is capable of maintaining the temperature of the chilled melon due to its low Rpm.
Cantaloupe juice is a good source of polyphenol antioxidants, which is essential to maintain healthy cardiovascular system and immune system. Cantaloupe juice also provides excellent vitamin C and beta carotene.
Champion Juicer is known to produce high quality Honeydew juice. Honeydew juice contains high Vitamin C, B6, folate, pantothenic acid and potassium but low in sodium. Honeydew juice also helps to overcome high blood pressure, skin disorders and other related problems of the circulatory system.
Watermelon juice is effective in clearing water retention problem in your body. It is mildly diuretic. Watermelon juice’s red pigment signifies the presence of Lycopene. Lycopene is a red carotenoid pigment and phytochemical found in tomatoes and other red fruits and vegetables. When extracting watermelon juice using Champion Juicer, it draws out the rich vitamins A, B6 and C as well as potassium from the fruit.
Do experiment with different types of melon juice using Champion Juicer and enjoy a cool summer nutrient packed juice that expels body heat.
Caution: consult your health practitioner before consuming sweet melon juice if you suffer from diabetes. In fact, if you are brave enough to try out Bitter Melon juice (commonly known as Bitter Gourd juice), it is proven to help regulate blood sugar in diabetes sufferer. Bitter Melon is also a member of the melon family.
Clean the Bitter melon thoroughly under running water, segment longitudinally. Feed segments through Champion Juicer with its seeds in tact.
What can be better than a glass of refreshing cool juice in the mid noon of a hot summer day? With the hot summer heat consuming my entire being, I dug deep into my Champion Juicer recipes archive, and retrieved a few of my favorites. Here’s one….
“Cu-Lime Cool” with Champion Juicer
2 Green Cucumbers
Ice cubes (optional)
Peel the cucumber if it is not organically grown. Slice into big long strip for ease of feeding them into the Champion Juicer feeding chamber.
Clean the lime and cut into quarters. Remove all seeds as the seeds may leave you with a bitter after taste. Push the two ingredients into the feeding chamber of the Champion Juicer and voila, you get yourself an instant fix ! You may grate the zest of an extra lime for garnishing and added floral aroma.
Lime is a good source of Vitamin C and cucumber’s cooling properties give a rejuvenating touch to the body. Cucumber juice aids skin eruptions of many kinds, especially with the addition of a little alfalfa juice.
