How To Prepare Healthy Juices With A Masticating Juicer

Masticating juicers are the latest trend in the juicing industry, so much so that they’ve made regular juicers a thing on the past. You may own a masticating juicer, but you’re still a long way off creating the perfect juices. We’ve put together a handy guide as to how to prepare healthy juices with a masticating juicer, in order to help you get the most out of your juicer.

Most people assume that you can just chuck anything into a juicer and it’ll taste great, but that’s not always the case. There are a number of different flavours you can achieve from a masticating juicer and they’re all dependent on what ingredients you stick in the juicer. For example, if you’re looking for a sweet taste, the likes of apples, pears, oranges, berries and more will provide a sweet flavour juicer. On the other hand, lemons and limes will give you a tart flavour, if that’s what you’re looking for.

Masticating can be divided into a number of other different categories; carrots, turnips and parsnips will give you a root flavour with ginger and hot peppers giving your juice a spicy kick. Otherwise, the likes of cucumber, celery and melon won’t give you a great taste but are high-yield.

High-yield ingredients are fantastic for providing nutrition, but as aforementioned don’t taste too great. Adding a more flavoursome ingredient, like mint or ginger could go a long way and make your juice much more attractive. Talking of mixing fruits, that’s completely acceptable in juicing. However, a good rule to follow is to only juice things together that you would want to eat together. You may also want to alter the levels of each ingredient as you go and adjust the juice to suit your tastes.

Many people new to juicing also ask if they should peel or not peel ingredients before throwing them into their masticating juicer. In most circumstances, that’s completely up to you. A lot of juicers will happily cut through the skin on a fruit and that skin often adds to the flavour or nutritional value of the juice. That being said, there are some exceptions – kiwi will almost certainly need to be peeled before being juiced and the same applies to citrus fruits, given that their peel doesn’t contain a nice flavour.

Again, any peel that you feel happy consuming is generally fine to include in your juice, given that it looks visually appealing of course.

Talking of visually appealing that it’s worth noting that creating a visually appealing juice is a large part of masticating. It is often the case that the way a food looks affects how we feel about that food and in turn how it tastes. Basically, don’t create a grey or brown juice that doesn’t look pleasing because you’ll likely find it doesn’t taste pleasing.

Finally, masticating juicers are fantastic addition to any kitchen and are also a huge improvement over the traditional centrifugal juicer. Part of the fun of juicing is experimenting, so get stuck in there and get juicing.
