Thanks for all your great comments! This giveaway is closed. The winner is Sarah Kewer! Congratulations and happy juicing everyone.

Looks tasty doesn’t it?

Today I’ve got a review of the really amazing Bella NutriPro Cold Press Juicer. Although we couldn’t offer a juicer as a giveaway, I decided to offer one reader a $25 VISA Giftcard as a giveaway. Maybe the winner could buy some great fruits and vegetables?!

The Bella NutriPro juicer, which looks the picture below after you assemble it, was super easy to put together.  The picture on the left shows that there is no spinning blade like on most juicers. Instead this juicer uses a two-stage cold press technology that squeezes and chews the fruits and vegetables to get the most juice possible without adding any heat to the juicer.  The lack of heat and no shredding of the produce with blades helps preserve all those great enzymes, which is why we juice in the first place!

Some of us were very excited to try it out!

Six of my kids were home when we first tried it out and the older ones quickly took over the process because I guess they didn’t think I could do it. Really.

The first day we made a fruit juice with grapefruit, pineapple, and oranges. That was a very big thumbs up. The second time out we used spinach and apples and made green juice (in the very first picture of the post.) Everyone was hesitant to try it, except me, but they thought it was very good. One of my daughter’s friends came over that night and he and John both tried some that we had saved for them. John asked me to make him some more so I did!

The third time out we used frozen strawberries and frozen peaches to make this delightful sorbet. Tip: If you do this, let the frozen fruit thaw slightly.

Doesn’t that look amazing? The Bella NutriPro Cold Press Juicer is easy to clean. It comes with a giant tootbrush and it took no time to clean it. That’s a good thing.

I would like to give you five chances to win a $25 VISA Giftcard. There will be one winner drawn on Saturday night, February 16, 2013.

    I have never juiced so I am not sure if I can qualify!!?? but I think I would like something green… spinach with something… maybe pineapple, I would be a novice so it would have to be a recipe…. really I have no idea!!

  2. Ellena says

    I went to the Nutripro website and I learned that beet juice increases blood flow to the brain (:

    I’m not sure if it works with all types of juicers but try frozen bananas sometime. I guess like you said the key is to let them thaw slightly but the result is delicious. And I have to give a big thumbs up to pineapple. Not only is it tasty but contains bromelain which is an effective anti-inflammatory. I used to take it it pill form for shin splints and it worked wonders. Made running a lot easier. Much better (and more enjoyable) to get it from actual pineapple juice. Believe it or not there is actually a plethora of recipes that can be made from the leftover pulp too.

    Put a watermelon through it. Seriously. You will see stars it’s so good. Juicers were MADE for watermelons.

  5. Jessie C. says

    I learned that fresh juice is a rich source of vital compounds that protect our cells against damage and disease and improve overall health.

  6. says

    I would love a juicer! It’s something I’ve always wanted to try. I love fruit juices –especially raspberry and strawberry.

    Juicing is a simple and easy way to integrate more fruit and vegetables into your diet. Just throw your fresh produce into the juicer and drink up.

    This looks like an awesome juicer! I like my centrifugal juicer that I just bought. My two favorite juices are now:

    1) Oranges, carrots, ginger with a dash of salt and cayenne.
    2) Kale, apples, celery, lemon, and ginger.

    Ginger is they key in both! :)

    I make a drink with pineapple, banana, apple and orange. It is so good and keeps you satisfied for a long time!!

  11. Nancy A. says

    I learned about the cold press juicing on their site! I never had heard of that and it is very interesting! I may have to look into that type of machine! Would love to win the gift card to buy produce to make more juice!!

  12. Mary Beth Elderton says

    I like to juice green things like spinach or kale, then sweeten them with blueberry or apple and a bit of lemon.

  13. Mary Beth Elderton says

    I learned that juicing is a great way to get the nutrition a body needs from raw, whole foods.

  14. says

    How great you got this juicer, and thanks for the giveaway! I would be willing to juice almost anything, but since I have to pick, I’d say the fruit would be nectarines, thrown in with some kale, strawberries, and an orange. :-)

  15. says

    From the website, I learned a benefit of juicing:
    Many Americans don’t consume enough produce, so juicing those fresh ingredients is a quick, easy way to meet your recommended daily needs.

  16. says

    I have a juicer and love it! I tend to juice greens using the Dr. Oz green juice as my basic recipe and then add various fruits to it. I find the citrus fruits go well with the greens. I’ve even juiced beets and mixed that juice with orange and pineapple. I am amazed at how good it is. Also, quick tip– I love to make smoothies and since the green juice doesn’t keep for long (gets rancid), I juice and then freeze it into ice cubes. This way I can just juice once a month but make smoothies anytime without all the fuss.

  17. Elena says

    I learned that juicing is one of the fastest and most efficient ways to get the nutrients your body needs

  18. Neiddy says

    Juicing is one of the fastest and more efficient way to get all the nutrients we need, juice is a great pick me up, gives you energy and helps you sleep better

  19. Sarah Kewer says

    I would love to juice more vegetables like kale, spinach, and carrots. I think it would be helpful in getting more vitamins.

  20. Cate says

    I have a juicer packed away in a storage locker but when I used it, my favorite thing to add to whatever fruits and veggies I had on hand .was fresh cantaloup. It had the best flavor and texture. Very refreshing.

  21. Cate says

    One new thing about juicing from the website: “Mistake #1: Sugar Rush—Your freshly made juices should be pleasant tasting, but using too many high-sugar fruits and vegetables to make them more appetizing can pump your bloodstream full of sugar. The key is moderation.” One of the reasons I quit juicing was thinking it was too sweet and not enough fiber but pairing limited fruits with more veggies is a good idea.
