A while back, I was given an awesome opportunity to review a product from the amazing brand Fagor which I satill use today. It's quality made such an impression on me and my family, I knew I had to get my hands on another one of their products. This was the perfect time for the product they were graciously sending me. With my plans for 2015 and an improvement in my families overall health, the new Fagor Platino Plus Slow Juicer/Sorbet Maker couldn't have been a better edition to my kitchen appliances.
On and off, I have been attempting a few raw foods/juice dieting options. I am not only trying to lose weight but cleanse my system. I am so sick of feeling helpless and overweight. So when a friend recently told me how much weight and how quickly she lost it using a juice diet, I had to give this new option a try.
First and foremost this is a very simple machine. There is absolutely no assembly. Because there is no separation or oxidation in slow juicing, you get more juice. Using a "2-step process in which juice is extracted twice before it enters your glass" this way the fruit is squeezed and not ground, chopped, or blended.
For my first beverage I went with something simple which was an orange julius protein drink. I was beyond impressed with how quickly the Platino Plus dispensed everything from the oranges into almost pure liquid. I was able to drink this beverage extremely quickly as there were no chunks of ice or frozen banana and no pulp left from the pineapple or oranges! It was absolutely amazing!
Using the same technology, you can use your Platino Plus to make yummy sorbet. The biggest thing is don't go out and buy this and expect to come home and use it right away unless you pre freeze your fruit or buy frozen fruit from the grocery store. You need no additional ingredients to make this yummy dessert with your appliance. This dessert is great option for those who have dairy allergies or are looking for a healthier alternative.
