Who Knew You Could Juice A Parsnip?

Who knew you could juice a parsnip? I didn't until this fab Phillips Avance Juicer turned up for review along with the Juice Master recipe book by juicing  'guru' Jason Vale (I have to admit I'd never heard of him before but apparently he is a god in the juicing world).


This juicer retails at £199 (Argos) and is the one that Jason recommends in his latest juicing book. It's super easy to put together and more importantly only takes 5 minutes to clean. A big problem with older style juicers (and one of the main reasons that put me off buying one before) was the palava of taking them apart and cleaning all the separate fiddly bits, but with this one there is minimal faffing. You can even use the pulp waste to make cakes – something I will be trying soon.

The book accompanying the juicer came with plenty of recipes but instead of following them to letter I used them as inspiration. My favourite combo so far has been Orange, Pear, Carrot and Ginger Juice but I’m looking forward to experimenting with other flavour combinations soon. I’m also finding that instead of throwing out slightly past it fruit and veg, I’m juicing them so its definitely cut my fresh food waste down considerably....and if I can start using the pulp waste to make cakes then all the better!


Look out for lots of healthy juice recipes on the blog soon and here is a beginnersguide to juicing from the Foodies100 website.

This is obviously a top of the range juicer but Argos have cheaper options available if your budget doesn't stretch.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
