Make your own juice, pesto & nut butters at home with your Jazz Max juicer

JAZZ MAXAbout 3 years ago I posted a blog the love for my juicer: Jazz Max.

I bought myself the great gift of a Jazz Max in the spring of 2012. The Jazz Max is a slow juicer that transforms any vegetable or hard fruit into a juice, it doesn’t warm up the ingredients and hence gets a maximum of nutrients out of your (organic) vegetables and fruits.

I still experiment with mostly local & seasonal vegetables and fruits that I happen to have in the house. As I only use organic fruits & veggies, all I need to do is wash them and them cut them into the right size to fit them in the juicer. I’ve surprised many visitors in the past years with my creations 🙂

Furthermore, I make a mean parsley pesto, it’s simply divine with pasta.

Some of my favorites juice blends are:

  • carrot, apple, ginger
  • kale, celery, beetroot, carrot, ginger (apple: optional)
  • kale & pear
  • kohlrabi, beetroot, carrot, ginger
  • zucchini, kale, fresh turmeric

You can add hemp or flax seeds oil to your juices to get your daily dose of omega-3 fat.

As I got so many enthusiastic about the juices and the benefits, I recently started distributing the Jazz Max juicers. Contact me if you wish to get your own health machine at home. You will never buy another juice again, as your own creations are simply the best (and cheapest)! Order your Jazz Max through me and I’ll give you a personal workshop for free.

<3 juicing

I’d been a big fan of smoothies for a long time & have even sent a couple of blenders to the blender graveyard by trying out many blends of (frozen) fruits, veggies, nuts, pulses, seeds, …

JAZZ MAX

After reading the book ‘Crazy Sexy Diet‘ by Kris Carr and attending a healthy living workshop, I bought myself the great gift of a Jazz Max in the spring of 2012. The Jazz Max is a slow juicer that transforms any vegetable or hard fruit into a juice, it doesn’t warm up and hence gets a maximum of nutrients out of your (organic) vegetables and fruits.

I experiment with whatever comes in my bi-weekly organic and local vegetable basket as well as with vegetables and fruits that I happen to have in the house. If your fruits & veggies are organic, all you need to do is wash them and them cut them into the right size to fit them in the juicer. If they aren’t organic, then, peal them and wash them thoroughly before juicing them.

I love ginger & will probably write an entire blog post on the health benefits of ginger in the near future.
