We are a smoothie obsessed family, but the concept of purely “juicing” was a new experience for us when we tackled a review of the Fusion Juicer. I admit that we all thought the Apple Blueberry and Strawberry juice that we made was literally the BEST JUICE of our life.
The Fusion Juicer is on sale at Walmart for $119.00. The price point is on the higher side but the product produces incredible results.
If you are a health conscious individual looking to JUICE or CLEANSE on a regular basis – especially adding in hearty items like greens in the form of Kale or chunky Apples, then the Fusion Juicer would be a great investment.
The Fusion Juicer comes complete with an inspirational recipe book featuring all kinds of juices – everything from green juices to sweet juices to dips you might want to make. I read through the recipes and the advice they shared and decided to opt for my own experimental juice. We tried a bunch of items and flavors to see what we liked best.
Our favorite juice was using Frozen Strawberries, Fresh Blueberries, and 1 Large Apple. Delicious! We also added in banana and oranges later on but the combination was never as divine as our initial flavors. The apple seemed to be a KEY ingredient in really bringing out the juice liquid element and then it pushed through all the other berry flavors.
Fusion Juicer Tips and Advice
1. If your are making a recipe with berries, add these first. They tend not to produce a lot of juice on their own, but once you add in a fruit that produces more liquid, it will then make your BERRY juice flow right for you so everything is flavored as you’d like.
2. Be sure to add in a fruit that produces a ton of liquid – this is a juicer after all! Apples and Oranges are excellent for this purpose. We thought the Apples tasted better in this special juice style. I’m not sure if the apples are really better or we just preferred them! be
3. It takes some time to make juice – so be patient and add ingredients in one at a time as you will PUSH them down into the juicing chamber and you don’t want your blades to get clogged. This happened when I went to fast with chunky items like an apple and banana at once. I let the machine rest for 3 minutes and then it seemed ready to spit out the pulp and m motor was good to go just like new again.
4. Check out the pulp that the Fusion Juicer spits out in the pulp container. It is pretty intense.
However, I still felt like it almost pulverized everything but just emitted the big chunky solids left over after squeezing out all the juice. We felt like our chunks of “pulp” looked so delicious and were smoothie worthy in our book so we decided to put them BACK into the juicer and to see if we could squeeze out more juice. We were able to squeeze out another glass of juice by adding just a portion of an extra apple.
Overall, we LOVED the Fusion Fruit Juicer and the kids thought it was delicious. I think if you are looking to incorporate GREEN juices into your families diet this is the way to go. I’m off to buy KALE at the grocery store tomorrow so I can come up with some fruity KALE recipes that my kids will drink up.
