I know, I know, you will say that I should not be in love with a THING:-)
But this is my friend, I tell you. My friend Hurom, the slow juicer, makes the best green juice ever.
Our relationship started on the last day of 2011. I had a friend Phillips that was more than 10 years old and he still did a good but.. I needed to go to "the next level" with my juice. After seeing a lot of Hurom enthusiasts on the internet, I just went and got myself this present. I immediately got into trouble because in just two hours I managed to squeeze everything I could squeeze in my house:-) I had to go for an evening-emergency-last-minute-shopping and was not so glad to navigate between all this let's-go-to-2012 explosions, with my 3 years old. But the alternative was to have to wait with squeezing until maybe 2 or 3 January.. Do you know how many minutes is that?? I just couldn't wait so long.
So once again home I made like 4 litters of different colors juice and 2 liters of green juice and my New Year guests had to drink and drink (and also you-guess-what) and admire my new found friend all night long.. Lucky them right?:-)
A month ago I discovered a new interesting technique the made my addiction to liquid GREEN even more addictive:-) Until then I was just juicing and drinking, now I had this brilliant idea to start blending the thick green juice! It had some pulp in it anyway, why not use that and make like a smooooothiieee:-) And SMOOTHIE it gets! It is just heaven on the tong and I enjoy it even more. Smoooth, baby..
And if you did not get amazed yet, today I discovered the next best thing:-) (I am really wondering how much more good things I can discover). Today I took the pulp left by the Hurom and I squeezed it once again. It was dry but now it's dryer and I got almost half a liter juice out of it!!! Blended that with chlorella, matcha and hemp protein - and OMG!!!! Sooooooo nice and creamy and green and great!
Now I am considering emptying the compost and squeeze that, too...... Or perhaps not... No, maybe not.
Today I am again, even more in love with my Hurom. This relationship is getting better and better:-)
