Some impressions of the latest juicing workshop

20170318-juicingOn 18 March I organised a slow juicing & smoothie workshop in collaboration with Sampoorna Yoga studio. The wonderful Sophie Claeys of the Yoga Bar hosted the workshop in her spacious kitchen and 7 other lovely ladies joined in.

There were 2 slow juicers (JazzMax) and one Vitamix blender working overtime to make the fabulous creations concocted by the attendees. One juice after the other was churned out slowly & deliberately, one more tasty than the other… as it’s all about finding the balance between the right amount of sweet & more tangy or bitter vegetables and fruits as well as the added boosters & kicks as my inspirator Kris Carr calls them.

  • If you wish to organise a slow juicing & smoothie workshop at your home, simply drop me a note. I organise them for groups as from 6 people.
