I love orange and carrot juice. Or apple and carrot. Or pineapple and carrot I also like to take the carrot juice and put it in the blender with some ice and some mango. A very nice smoothie, very refreshing.
All very tasty!
How do defoam? Actually, I like the foam and just mix it into the juice when drinking it. The jug that came with my juicer has a little thing (like a plastic "wall") you can slide in and then it separates the jug in two parts. The foam stays in one, the juice in the other. But, as I said, I like the juice anyway.
What juicer do you have? I just bought a new one, pretty fancy with a lot of power and this one doesn't produce as much foam as the old one.
Every day is a new day - embrace it!
Yup. I do carrot/orange or carrot/apple. I don't juice these days, but those were good. I didn't like plain carrot juice. Seemd too...thick? and weird haha.
As for foam. I just let the juice sit in my big container that I juice into. After a few mintues the foam will begin to thicken and harden. It makes it easier to just scoop off the foam into the sink. Sometimes after that I strain the juice.

I too like carrot and a fruit mix. Yesterday I had carrot, orange, and cucumber. I don't like eating beets, but like juicing them. All my juices I mix with fruit, be it a lemon, or orange, or apple. It seems to mellow them somewhat. I don't have any foam when I juice...

Ummm, why defoam? Put the white mustaches to shame and have a great red/orange one!!!
I don't really like the foam on top of my juice either, although I do like the idea of a red/orange mustache!
I strain my juice (a fine strainer that came with my juicer) and that seems to take care of the foam and I like the thinner consistency of the juice. I have a Champion and use it daily, what a machine!

You mentioned celery. Have you ever tried celery/apple? I just LOVE the stuff.
If you filter the juice as you are making it (with a fine strainer or filter), you will not have any mousse.
I have a Breville some-model. I bought it new on ebay. It was supposed to have a foam strainer, but it didn't come with it.
I usually either mix the foam in, or lately i've been scooping it off.
I have a bad habit of juicing lots of stuff at one time and expecting it to taste good, lol. I'm working on breaking myself of that habit.
I will try all of the above. Thanks, guys!
I have the Hamilton Beach Juice Fountain and it looks exactly like the Breville Juice Fountain. I have not juiced for a while and miss it a lot. I will begin again since I have found this site and this forum. I always mixed apples with the carrots and it makes it sweeter. I liked some of the suggestions in the replies. As to the foam, I have had other juicers that had a divider to separate the foam. I would suggest that you get a 'grease' separator cup that has the spout at the bottom and pours from the bottom and the foam will remain until last since you did not get the defoamer. I have tried screens etc., but they did not work well since the screen gets clogged with the very fine pulp and foam.

Also this would be a good time to ask you folks if any of you juice the peels of citrus fruits. I've read not to because it makes the juice bitter, but I just wondered if anyone actually did.
I think I read something before about people juicing watermelon rinds.
I don't know - I'd be cautious about any rinds. Just because of chemical sprays and such...

I'm not sure how much of a difference there is between rind holding toxic chemicals and regular peel (apples/cucumbers/etc) holding them.
When I was first introduced to juicing - many years ago - the recipe I was given was:
2 stalks of celery
I had a Champion juicer at that time and I ran all my juice through a strainer so that it got more of the "grit" out and left the foam behind :)
I still have my Champion juicer yet I also purchased (from QVC) a Jack LaLane juicer and that doesn't seem to generate foam (that I can remember anyway, I have just started on 100% raw and haven't gotten the juicer back in action yet).
Thank you, I'll try that, too!
