Horizontal juicers - not just for juice
Horizontal juicers are so much more than juicers
Did you know that horizontal juicers are not just for juicing? Juicers such as the BioChef Axis double as raw food processors. Not only can you make your favourite juices you can also enjoy, nut butters, sorbets, dips, pasta, bread sticks and more.
You can use a horizontal juicer for most kitchen food processing tasks making them more versatile than a vertical juicer. If you have just had a baby the horizontal juicer will be your best friend in the kitchen quietly making fresh, nutritious baby foods to both eat now and store for later.
Most horizontal cold press juice extractors such as the Oscar Neo 1000 come with a variety of different attachments turning your juicer into a food processor. The mincing screen is used to puree, emulsify and crush the ingredients turning them into a paste or sauce. For example, basil, garlic, lemon, pine nuts, olive oil and Parmesan can be alternatively fed into the machine where it is crushed and extruded as a fresh living basil pesto. When made with the juicer you won't believe the taste of this pesto! It is completely different than when using a fast spinning food processor, so fresh, tasty and alive!
The included nozzles allow you to shape your processed food to easily make bread sticks, pasta nut butters and more. The low speed and gentle crushing action won’t shred or damage precious enzymes thereby, in some cases, producing a superior outcome than a normal food processor.
Healthy, organic muesli can be very expensive but with the horizontal raw food processor you can make your own. Simply juice your favourite fruits such pineapple, oranges or nectarines and add a cup of oats, grapes, nuts and raisins for a dairy free, delicious breakfast.
For something sweet your horizontal cold press juice extractor is perfect for making alternative healthy frozen treats. Frozen fruit such as bananas or mango are simply fed into the machine where it is crushed and comes out very much like a sorbet. You merely combine your favourite fruits and add milk, cream or alternative milks such as coconut to make a delicious fruit sorbet without preservatives or added flavours. For super creamy sorbet try freezing yoghurt in ice cube trays and adding some delicious berries.
For the very young or the very old making your own soft, pureed foods can be a lifesaver and a healthy alternative to store bought foods. Your horizontal juicer will turn organic cooked fruits and vegetables into smooth pureed meals for both babies and the elderly or palliative care patients. These too can be frozen to store your week’s worth of meals giving you time for other important things. Horizontal juicers such as the Oscar Neo 1200 are quieter than the vertical ones so you wont disturb sleeping babies.
If you prefer your kids to eat healthy snacks after school the horizontal juicer is so tough and durable it will crush almonds, cashews and macadamia nuts easily turning them into delicious, healthy nut butters. Combine these crushed nuts with dried fruit such as dried dates, figs and seeds add some cacao and roll in coconut to make your own bliss balls at home. Hemp seeds are perfect and are rich in healthy fats, protein and various minerals. Try our Hemp Seed Bliss Ball recipes, easy and delicious.
So even though we love our horizontal juicers for their life giving fruit and vegetable juices there is so much more to them than just juice. They are a one stop shop for many of our home made, healthy, nutritious foods and treats.
