A timely purchase...

Just before the current mini-heatwave began the postman left us a little package. Inside were the components we needed to turn our faithful little Moulinex food processor into a juicer.

So now any innocent fruit that carelessly enters this house (or is bundled in the front door by the folk at Ocado) stands a very good chance of being chopped up with sharp knives, then having its flesh pressed into a spinning grater and before giving up its very juice in a spinning centrifuge.


This afternoon we threw in a pear, a mango, some water and half a lime for a very refreshing drink.


Just add ice...

We now need to send you the song "Carrot Juice Constitutes Murder" by The Arrogant Worms.

Just a thought :)

when we bought the bits to turn the magimix into a juicer, we used them a lot for a few days, then got entirely bored with washing them up, and they've never been used again.

perhaps I should dig them out again ...

To turn your refreshing juice into a scrummy sorbet just add beaten egg whites (and probably some sugar/honey)then freeze...

Ah, for that we have the ice cream maker! A delightful little beast with its sole purpose to make scrummy ice creams!

That sounds almost like the mythical Vodka Vector!

Basilico no longer offers Vodka Vector but we can manufacture the memory for you wholesale

plus I worked out how to use three hands to explain how to prepare a mango ;-)
