How to make fresh juice at home without a juicer
Making your own juice at home without a juicer couldn't be simpler thanks to your blender! I love using my Vitamix to make my own juice at home. Here's how to do it in three simple steps:
Add your fruit and vegetables to the blender jug, and top with cold, filtered water (photo 1). Blend until it is completely smooth - I find it best to start on a low speed then gradually increase the speed (photo 2). Transfer the juice to a strainer set over a bowl and use a spoon to push the juice through (photo 3).
And that's it! Fresh homemade juice in minutes.
Tips for making the perfect homemade juice
- Use fresh and vibrant ingredients. I love using organic if I can find it!
- Re-blend the remaining pulp with more water. This allows you to stretch out the fruit and get more juice at the end.
- Blend with cold, filtered water. This is super important for making sure your juice lasts longer and tastes refreshing.
- I love adding a pinch of black pepper to assist with absorption of the turmeric. If that's not your vibe, you can omit it.
- If you own a nut milk bag, you can use this instead of the strainer over the bowl method. However, be cautious that your nut milk bag may stain.
Yes! Carrots are an excellent source of Vitamin A, which aids immunity and supports skin and eye health. Combined with oranges, ginger and turmeric, this healthy juice is guaranteed to make your body feel good!
Of course! Use any produce of your choosing.
Yep, simply add all the ingredients to your juicer instead.
