We tried some of these recipes on a juicepresso and that allowed us to make some cold pressed juices at hold the most healthy way. The debate on how healthy juicing is, is another subject. We personally enjoyed the process healthy or not is was fun and yummy and a lot more cost effective than buying a green drink from one of the local jamba juice shops.
