  • The same 2-step process is used to grind frozen fruits twice into a creamy sorbet
  • The Platino Plus precisely squeezes the fruit without shredding or chopping it, giving you more juice in your glass

    My favorite fruit is probably Bananas and Strawberries but I’m a huge fan of pears, too. Favorite veggie is steamed broccoli. I know that’s weird but I loves it. I’ve never juiced anything so I’m not sure how that would work but I think it’d be cool.

    Mango is my favorite fruit. Peaches probably come second although I think I eat more watermelon than other fruits.

    I love strawberries.
    They are awesome dipped in sugar.
    I’d love to try sorbet,though!

  4. Colleen Boudreau October 27, 2014 at 10:40 pm -

    My favorite fruit is bananas.

  5. Robin Christofaro October 27, 2014 at 10:46 pm -

    I actually love all fruits and vegetables. I would have to say that spinach is my favorite – probably because so many people dislike it, that has made me like it even more!! They don’t know what they are missing!

    green apples are my favorite. I make a juice with cucumber, ginger, green apple and beets; so good!

  7. piper October 28, 2014 at 2:46 am -

    I have been wanting to make my own juice for years. I have fibromyalgia and the green juices are supposed to help. Store bought are so expensive and i would like to tweak them anyhow.

    I love anything blueberry. We make blueberry lemonades, smoothies and ice creams, so sorbet would be awesome.

  9. Jayne October 28, 2014 at 8:28 am -

    My favorite fruit is watermelon in season. I don’t think anything beats it for a refresher when it’s really hot outside.

  10. Tracy Faris October 28, 2014 at 8:58 am -

    We love apples. There are so many ways to eat it… by itself, with salt, with peanut butter, apple sauce, apple pie, in a smoothie, caramel apple… the list goes on and on!

  11. Kelly October 28, 2014 at 9:02 am -

    I love carrots, celery, kale, spinach… I currently am only able to eat them, as I don’t have a juicer. I like all raw except for the kale, which I bake into chips, or sauteed. I love all fruit, except for strawberries (allergic).

  12. Nichole Smith October 28, 2014 at 9:03 am -

    My favorite fruit is blueberries, favorite vegetable is asparagus. I like it roasted and smothered in hollandais sauce.

  13. Kelly D October 28, 2014 at 9:09 am -

    I like broccoli and my favorite way to eat it is in a stir fry.

  14. Erin Hussman October 28, 2014 at 9:19 am -

    My favorite is Red Peppers, I can eat them like candy. I also love watermelon. Growing up my dad always salted his watermelon so every time I eat it I am reminded of him.

  15. Cynthia Palmatier October 28, 2014 at 10:16 am -

    I love lemons, I start my day with warm lemon water, the green tea with lemon, then iced tea with lemon the rest of the day…I also love tomatoes, eat them almost every day also in some form, tomato sauce, tomato soup, LTB sandwiches, tomatoe and cucumber salad, and more!

  16. Valerie W October 28, 2014 at 11:21 am -

    Kale is my favorite vegetable, it is so good for your body in many different ways. I eat it raw in smoothies or I steam it with liquid chicken boullion mixed with my water. So yummy and so healthy!!

  17. Megan Johnson October 28, 2014 at 12:09 pm -

    I think it’s a toss up between strawberries, blueberries and kiwi. The first two are easy to eat just plain and I save kiwi for special occasions where I’m actually patient enough to peel them. 😀

  18. sandra October 28, 2014 at 1:39 pm -

    I like bananas because they offer potassium and fiber as well as tastes good.

  19. Rebekah October 28, 2014 at 4:51 pm -

    I love cherries. I usually use cherries along with berries and yogurt in smoothies. My brother and sister-in-law have a juicer and I always liked their combos: carrots, beets, apples, and spinach.

  20. lisa October 28, 2014 at 5:32 pm -

    My favorite fruit, when it’s perfectly ripe, is watermelon. It’s sweet and juicy. Also, when they’re in season it’s summer. Served ice cold it’s perfect.

    I just saw that all pinterest posts must be followed to claim anything. Does that include not being able to click on the posts we do follow? If so, let me know, please.

      I think the host is meaning you have to follow all boards. Its just the follow all button?

  22. Ingrid Jackson October 28, 2014 at 6:30 pm -

    I love strawberries. I enjoy them many ways, especially over a slice of homemade pound cake with whipped cream on top and a strawberry soda.

  23. Theresa October 28, 2014 at 7:31 pm -

    Right now my favorite pregnancy fruit is grapes!

  24. Marilyn Nawara October 29, 2014 at 6:53 am -

    My favorite veggie is zucchini. I peel it and then slice it into about 1/2″ slices and then bake in the oven with butter until tender.

  25. Michelle S October 29, 2014 at 10:07 am -

    My favorite fruit is cantalope! I can eat a whole one in one sitting. I hadn’t thought about it but I bet it would be good in a smoothie too!

  26. Jennifer Reed October 29, 2014 at 11:30 am -

    My favorite fruit is apples because they can go with both sweet and savory dishes. They are also great as a snack anytime. I also like that their are so many different varieties that can taste a little different making it a very versatile fruit. My favorite way to eat apples is with peanut butter.

  27. Natalie Nichols October 30, 2014 at 6:03 pm -

    I like avocados because they are satisfying and filled with nutrients and good fats.

  28. Michelle Macaluso October 30, 2014 at 10:02 pm -

    My favorite vegetable is carrots. I like to eat mini carrots with a little bit of ranch to dip them in.

  29. Sara Theissen October 31, 2014 at 4:43 pm -

    My favorite fruit is probably strawberries or red grapes. My favorite vegetable…maybe peppers. I love making grape and carrot smoothies. Yum!

  30. Michelle K. October 31, 2014 at 4:55 pm -

    My favorite fruit is strawberries, they are usually very sweet and make a great smoothie

  31. Ty November 1, 2014 at 1:56 pm -

    My favorite fruit is peach and I normally love to add pineapple and raspberry to it. It makes it really rich and so good.

  32. Lauryn R November 1, 2014 at 7:42 pm -

    I pretty much love all fruits and vegetables! I don’t usually make veggies into drinks though, I would love to be able to give it a try! I love making mixed berry smoothies! 🙂

  33. Chris O November 3, 2014 at 3:55 pm -

    My favorite fruit is the strawberry, which grow great in coffee “cans”.

  34. Billie November 6, 2014 at 2:00 am -

    I love corn, the sweeter the better. I also like carrots, cooked and tender, but still firm with butter. And others!

  35. Stephen Saunders November 7, 2014 at 9:21 am -

    My favorite is watermelon. During the summer months, I usually eat at least one per week and will share with my neighbor also. 🙂

    I love kiwis and blueberries mixed together

  40. Beth November 8, 2014 at 8:59 pm -

    I dislike picking favorites because I like so many things. I do enjoy pumpkin season, so I’m having a great time making pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin oatmeal, pumpkin pasta, etc.

  41. richelle bowers November 9, 2014 at 11:48 am -

    I can’t determine which fruit is my favorite. It’s a tie between bananas and grapes.

  42. Angela Cash November 11, 2014 at 4:19 pm -

    My favorite fruit is mango. I love to use them to make a fruit salsa, served with blackened fish and jasmine rice.
