Juicer Uses 8
A juicer is not just making juice or smoothies, nut milk, apple juice, orange juice, or any other green juice. You can use it to make baby food, sorbets, and a lot of amazing food items. Whether you have a masticating juicer, centrifugal juicer, cold press juicer, or even a citrus juicer, try the non-juicer items below. I can assure you that you will love these experiments.
1. Nut Butter:
Do you know you can make your nut butter with your juicer? Yep! I am not kidding. It is easy to make and does not take too much time. The process is really simple, Firstly grab your favorite kind of nut, and run it through a juicer. It will make the nuts into fine crumbs. Stir the crumbs with a bit of coconut oil, some cinnamon, and a very little amount of salt.
I also used vanilla and honey to increase the flavor. You may also use maple syrup or cocoa powder too; Which makes the butter more creamy and smooth. Curious to know about the taste? No worries! It’s delicious. Try it slathering on toast or scooping up with a slice of apple.
2. Tomato Sauce:
Not all tomato sauce you buy from the market is a good one, or you may not like the taste. Suppose you are making a dish where tomato sauce is a necessary ingredient, but you are running out of it. What to do now? Yep! You guessed it correctly. Let’s see how to make tomato sauce at home with the help of your juicer.
If you have a juicer, you can easily make tomato sauce at home. Firstly, take some tomato into the juicer and make juice from it. Then sauté some garlic in olive oil, and add it to your tomato juice. Cook over medium heat until reduced by half. Season with salt, pepper, and sugar to increase the taste. I will recommend using freshly made tomato sauce cause that will give you the perfect taste.
I’m a hummus lover. Making hummus is more comfortable with a food processor, but unfortunately, I do not have any food processor. I love making this recipe at home. So you might be thinking, How is it possible without a food processor? No worries, let me share how you can make it with a juicer. My juicer can churn out creamy and garlicky hummus. To get smooth hummus, you need peeled chickpeas, but peeling chickpea is a crazy thing. You can do it by spending a few minutes with your juicer.
Pour a can of drained chickpea into your juicer and blend it until it turns into a puree. Now, add some lemon juice, garlic, tahini, salt, and pepper with that. Transfer to a serving bowl and chill. It will be more delicious and attractive when you serve it with corn chips, flatbread, and veggie sticks.
4. Ice Cream:
I want to share the world’s most natural, healthiest, and inexpensive Banana ice cream recipe with you. All you need is frozen peeled bananas and your sweet tooth. Try to use a banana, which is just turning yellow, not the overripe one. Also, if you use a green banana, it will not work at all and will ruin the taste.
Peel the bananas and place them in the freezer overnight or until they become stiff. Then use your juicer to blend the bananas perfectly. You used frozen banana, so the blend may feel a bit dry, but it will get the creamy texture if you keep it in a bowl for some time. Now, stir the banana blend until it turns smooth, and now it’s all ready. As a topping ad some peanut butter and nut, you can eat it plain or chopped nuts or a drizzle of chocolate sauce. If you are not a banana lover, you can try it with another frozen fruit like pineapple.
Nothing can be better than a hot cup of soup on a cold night, but making it is not the easiest thing. One day, I was trying hard to find a simple way of making homemade juice, then I discovered that we could do it using our juicer.
At first, I extracted juice from tomato, onion, carrot, and celery stalk on the base. After heating the mixture until warm, I added salt and pepper. It’s become tasty. By following this way, you can make tomato soup easily. So, do try this at home. You can use any vegetables you like to make the soup form.
You can make the salsa by using your juicer. The process is similar to the tomato sauce described above. The best salsa is made with fresh tomatoes, especially when you use nicely ripened in-season tomatoes. Firstly you have to juice the tomato just like tomato sauce. Then take the juice to a pan and warm it. Cook it medium heat and reduce it by half.
Then add jalapeno, chopped onion, garlic, lime juice, chili powder, and cumin. Add salt and pepper to taste. You may add sugar if you want. Serve it with some tortilla chips or some diced tomato as well. This homemade recipe is best for a snack or party food.
7. Almond Milk:
If you love almond milk, it’s fun to make it yourself. When you try this recipe at home, it allows you to control the sweetness and infuse flavor. To make homemade almond milk starts with soaking almonds in some water. After an overnight soak in water, almonds transform soft enough to juice. Rinse out the almonds and make it clear.
Set up your juicer and add almonds with water. Continue adding almonds and water until the pitcher is full. You may serve it plain or with vanilla, sweetener, or spice. It is so easy. It tastes better than store-bought almond milk.
In the summertime, most people love cocktails. I am not exceptional. What if you can make your homemade cocktail by using your juicer! Isn’t it cool? Firstly, Cut fresh ingredients to size: tomato, celery, onion, and jalapeno. Take it into the juicer and make a juice. Take the juice into a bowl and add salt and pepper. If you use three pounds of vine-ripened tomatoes, you will get four cups of cocktails.
Refrigerate it for one hour. Stir the juice and add one-ounce vodka to each glass before serving. When I take one sip of cocktails in the summertime, it gives me great pleasure. You may try it at your home. I want to assure you that homemade recipes are far better than buying one.
