Drinking your nutrients is all the rage but those good-for-you fancy juices and smoothies really start to add up. I love the idea of packing my greens into a yummy, cold drink from any of the popular juiceries, but my bank account does not. Since I’m a DIY kinda gal anyway (and a lover of any and all kitchen gadgets), I jumped at the chance to try out the Hurom Premium Slow Juicer/Smoothie Maker, the only juicer on the market that also makes smoothies.

The machine comes equipped with great recipes if you’re a juicing novice like myself or want to mix it up with smoothies. It’s really easy to clean (which is always a plus in my book) and is fairly compact so it won’t take up a ton of counter or shelf space.

With back to school season in full swing, the Hurom Slow Juicer/Smoothie Maker could be just the answer to making the morning hustle easier, yummier and more nutritious.
