The popularity of juicing is increasing as more people look for healthier ways to eat and live. Introducing fresh juice into your daily diet helps to promote better health, fight illness, and boost energy and vitality. Plastaket Manufacturing, home of the Champion Juicer, is a third-generation, family-owned business. The company is proud to continue in the tradition of the founders: manufacturing in the USA and focusing on high-quality, long-lasting juicers.
Juicing fresh fruits and vegetables is a great way to add nutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals to our bodies. Juicing maximizes nutrients by utilizing the whole food, peelings, seeds and all. Fruits and vegetables contain enzymes, phytochemicals, antioxidants and other protective substances that are essential for good health. Juicing helps the body’s digestive system function more effectively. Our masticating juicer removes the insoluble fiber from the fruits and vegetables, allowing the nutrients in the fresh juice to be more easily absorbed by the body.
- Wash and rinse your produce thoroughly.
- Cut off any damaged sections or tough ends.
- Chilled produce results in better-tasting juice.
- Save yourself some time — make a double batch.
- For best results, drink your juice within 24 hours of juicing.
What about the pulp?
After juicing, you’ll have the fibrous pulp left over. Save that pulp for use in things like:
- Vegetable soup
- Muffins, cakes, or other baked goods
- Veggie burgers
- Pasta sauce
- Pet treats
You also can freeze it for later use, or compost it.
Juicing is a fantastic way to get a wide variety of fruits and vegetables into your diet! There are endless flavor combinations — experiment with it, have fun! With fall just around the corner, we’ve put together a handful of recipes that we hope you’ll enjoy. For more recipes and juicing tips, please stop by our website at Championjuicer.com .
Green Detox Juice
Need a fresh start? This recipe will help your body naturally detox and eliminate extra water weight. It’s also a good juice to help you balance your blood sugar if you’ve overeaten sweets recently.
4 celery stalks
1 large cucumber
1 lemon, peel on
1 small handful of spinach
Cut lemon into quarters and cucumber into spears. Core apple. Juice celery, cucumber, lemon, spinach, and apple together. Serve immediately.
Carrot Pumpkin Spice Juice
Pumpkins are very nutritious and make great juices. Try it in this recipe below.
1 pie pumpkin
7 long carrots
1-inch knob of ginger
Sprinkle of cinnamon
Prepare pumpkin by removing rind, cutting it down the center, and removing seeds. Then cut it lengthwise or into chunks. Core apple. Juice pumpkin, carrots, apples, and ginger together. Pour into glass, sprinkle with cinnamon, and serve immediately.
Apple Cinnamon Juice
This refreshing juice will help keep sweet cravings at bay and can easily be made into a smoothie by adding a banana. I like using gala or cameo apple varieties, but any type will make a delicious juice.
4 apples (any variety)
2 celery stalks
Pinch of cinnamon
Core apples. Cut cucumber into spears. Juice apples, celery, and cucumber together. Add pinch of cinnamon and stir to combine. Serve immediately.
Optional: If you want to make it into a thick smoothie, add juice to a blender with one banana. Blend until smooth and drink immediately.
Hummus is not only delicious, but it’s a fantastic source of plant-based protein as well. You can make a delicious hummus right in your Champion juicer.
1 can chickpeas
2 beets, roasted and cut into chunks
1 garlic clove
Juice of half a lemon
1 tablespoon of olive oil and/or tahini (or as desired for taste and consistency)
Fit the blank screen (or use homogenizing body) onto the juicer body. Alternate chickpeas, garlic clove, and beets for best flavor melding. Mix in olive oil and/or tahini until you have your desired consistency.
Optional: Add fresh herbs (dill or basil) and sumac for topping. To make green hummus, replace beets with 2 handfuls fresh spinach.
