Cold Press Juicing Tips

If you are new to Kuvings and Cold Pressed Juicing then here are a few simple tips for making your juice.

Make it Taste Good

When making a cold press juice from raw, fresh ingredients you want the final juice to taste great or you won’t enjoy the process of juicing.

If you own a juicer and are not making fresh juice daily then you aren’t getting the benefits. It’s like having a gym membership and not going to gym.

You won’t get any benefit if you aren’t doing it!

So, our first suggestion is – start making fresh juices that taste great by using our tried and tested recipes.

Buy in Season

If you want you cold press juice to taste even better buy your fruits and vegetables from local markets. When produce is in season it is fresher, healthier and taste so much better.

When you juice vegetables like carrots and beetroot that is not in season you can expect less juice, extra pulp in the juice and the overall texture of the juice can change due to the dryness of storing veggies.

 

Store Your Juice in Glass

Kuvings cold press juicers reduce oxidation and allow you to store your juice in glass bottles or jars for up to 3 days in the fridge.

This means you can make more juice at any one time. Instead of making your juice each day try making more and store it. This will save you time and make it easy for you to grab a juice from the fridge when you want it.

See our Glass Bottle range online.

Fresh is Best

When you buy your ingredients and get them home juice them sooner rather than later.

When produce sits in the fridge or on the shelf they start to dry out, especially herbs and greens, and you will end up with less juice when you go the make your recipe.

If you need to store ingredients then try our food saver bags.

Use big flavours

A cold press juicer allows you to use various herbs like parsley, mint and basil in your juices to add some great flavour.

You can also use spices like ginger and turmeric to add a extra kick. You don’t need a lot either because a cold press juicer will extract much more flavour and nutrients in the juice than a traditional juicer.

Lemon and lime in juice will help keep them fresh when storing in a fridge and they also make your juices pop.

Juice all Colours

Plants can harness the light from the sun and produce different coloured fruits and vegetables for humans to enjoy, through a process known as photosynthesis.

For plants to grow and to protect themselves (make themselves resilient to the elements of nature) they produce natural chemicals called “phytochemicals” or more commonly referred to as “phytonutrients”.
