2014 Hot Trend: Juicing

The Book
Get the lowdown on juicing with Pat Crocker’s The Juicing Bible ($41), featuring over 300 simple recipes and a guide to how our bodies react to liquid diets. It comes complete with health tips, preparation techniques and more.

The Machine
Unlike most juicers, Coway’s Juicepresso ($798) presses and crushes fruit at a low speed so the goodness isn’t lost, plus it’s a lot quieter. A high-powered motor allows for extraction of hard fruits, leafy vegetables and raw nuts.

The Takeaway
Get your juice fix on-the-go at Mission Juice. Choose from classic flavors like honeydew ($2.50) and green options like Chinese kale ($3.50), or go for their special blends like the Breakfast Surprise ($6.50), a mix of orange, apple, pineapple and passionfruit.

The Delivery
Local online juice store Hic’Juice offers organic, cold-pressed juices that come in ‘cleanse packs’ (from $108), depending on how intense you want your detox to be. If you’re just looking for a dietary supplement, opt for the three-flavors-in-one ‘six pack’ ($98).

The Raw Goods
If the wet market just doesn’t cut it for you, find all your juicing essentials at Tangy Tangerines from apples and pineapples ($0.40-$4.50), to hard-to-find fruits like yellow dragonfruit ($5-$9) and custard apples ($3-$18).
