Here's a useful link, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iggGxhqFI-8

I'm quite lazy :oops: so i skip the straining part. Anyway, a bit of pulp/residue is good for fibre intake (that's the lazy me talking). Mine's quite simple, just add honey only.

The youtubber's concoction has more steps. But I'm sure it'll taste much nicer too.

enjoy. :lol:


Yah saw that in the other thread where Jen was asking about the Hurom slow juicer. Was tempted but when I think further, I think this will be another white elephant among all the white elephants I have. :oops:

Exactly what are the white elephants you have at home? We kept away our juicer after we got a blender to do smoothies. But we did smoothies all of 5 times, I think. But we got a bit of mileage from juicer cos we used to drink every weekend for couple of years. But so noisy so I was quite tempted by the Hurom slow juicer. But what to do with my existing juicer? So wasted!

Talk about white elephants, can you all share what appliances you have in kitchen which you use frequently or at least 1x a week?

My mini toaster; I use it at least thrice a week.
My rice cooker, I use it almost daily.

I presume this excludes items like fridge, washer, rice cooker? Maybe better to list appliances we hardly use?

Ok, white elephants:
a blender, a bread toaster, a set of cups bought from uk more than 20 yrs ago, a lot of plates, bowls, some corningwares etc.

White elephants

Happycall pans. I did not buy them, given to me by mum and MIL
Juicer given by MIL
Deep fryer, some housewarming gift from eons ago
Thermal pot given by MIL
Mini slow cooker stopped using this when kids pass babyhood
Pasta maker too troublesome
Tefal 3 tier electric steamer another housewarming gift
Sandwich maker given by mum
Moulinex food processor

Off the cuff, that's what I can think of. But if I rummage through my cabinets and store, I am sure there are more.
