I have been on a big juice kick lately. Having freshly made juice at home is such a luxury. It tastes so much better than anything store bought, and I love being able to to customize the blend. I loved the idea of orange juice with strawberries. It’s a great way to get the vitamins from oranges with a fun twist. Adding some blackberries really turns things up a notch. This is a delicious fruit juice and a perfect break from traditional orange juice.
While any juicer will work for this recipe, I personally use and love the Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer. Justin surprised me with this juicer as a present and it is amazing! I am surprised at how much juice is gets out of fruits and vegetables. Especially leafy greens and softer fruits, like berries. If you don’t have a juicer, feel free to use a blender, add some ice, and make this into a smoothie!

Slow or masticating juicers crush and grind the fruits and vegetables to extract the juice, then filter out the pulp. They are called slow juicers because they don’t spin rapidly. This also means they do not heat up the juice as much as centrifugal juicers do. This can cause some of the nutrients to be lost in the process of juicing. Slow juicers produce drier pulp than centrifugal juicers and extract more juice from leafy greens and soft fruits. Having drier pulp means you have more options in how you use the juice pulp too. I honestly think that the Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush Masticating Slow Juicer is one of the best options out there for making juices at home.
