Let’s Juice

Hello everyone, I hope you have had a good week! I have been applying for jobs nonstop this past week, which is driving me insane – full of disappointment and endless application forms.

In my very first juicing post, I said that I had bought a Nutribullet due to space confinement and lack of wanting to mess around cleaning it for hours on end. Luckily, I was given a £50 voucher this week by my mum, and I took to Amazon in search of a cheap juicer. Low and behold, the Philips Viva Compact was only £40, so I snapped it up!


It only arrived yesterday and I am already in love with it; it means I don’t have to sieve all the pulp. However, the difference is clear – this is going to use up a lot more fruit and veg as the juicer removes much less than what I’m used to.

Anyway  – let’s go, 5 more recipes!
