Make healthy and tasty juice at home with these easy tips




Do you not have a blender at hand but really want a glass of fresh fruit juice? Well, there is an easy way of making juice from any fruit or berry without a blender and we will teach you how.

Juices

How to make fruit juice without a blender or a juicer?

  1. Wash the fruits and put them in a saucepan. Aluminum pans cannot be used because almost all juices contain acid. If you want to make apple juice, cut the apples into thin slices. You also need to remove pits and seeds from your fruits, otherwise your juice will taste bitter.
  2. Fill the pan with berries or fruits, pour enough water to cover the fruits, put your pan on the stove and boil the fruits. Then take down the pan, cover it with a lid and leave to soak over night.
  3. By the next day you will have a broth waiting that tastes more like a juice concentrate.
  4. Boil the juice one more time and pour into jars. Optionally, you can add sugar, but only a little since the juice will already be sweet and concentrated.

There are different types of fruit juices you can make and enjoy at home.

Juices

Here is a list of the main types of juices:

  • Fruit juices - these are the most popular and well-known types
  • Vegetable juices - common and popular ones like tomato and carrot juices, and very exotic ones like celery or cabbage juice
  • Berry juices
  • Wood juices made from birch, chestnut, etc.

Let us take a look at how to make homemade fruit juice without a juicer, using apple juice as an example.

Here is a recipe for apple juice made with a grater:

This method takes more time and is not suitable for the production of juice in large quantities, but if you want to drink homemade apple juice during a meal, it is a good option to try. Regardless of the method of extraction of juice from apples at home, remember a few rules:

  • Do not use aluminum or other metals and enameled dish. Organic acids can react with metals and contaminants may appear in your juice.
  • When you make juice without a juicer, you should do it at a certain pace, not too fast and not too slow. If you try to squeeze the juice quickly, it will become muddy. If you squeeze the juice slowly, the liquid will react with oxygen and you won't be able to keep the product for a long time without it turning sour.
  • Squeezing juice from hard apples is unprofitable even in industrial production. The most suitable varieties for making juice are sour apples.
  • Carefully pick the apples and be sure to wash them in clean water, even if you are going to cut the skin.

Besides grater, you will need gauze and appropriate dishes. These simple steps will help you to make juice without a juicer:

  1. Wash the apples, clean them from the skin, cut them into halves or quarters and remove the core with seeds.
  2. Rub pieces of apples on a grater with small cells.
  3. Take a deep bowl and cover it with gauze.
  4. Gently spread the apple paste on the gauze.
  5. Connect the ends of the gauze so that you get a kind of pouch with applesauce inside.
  6. Squeeze out the juice smoothly right into a bowl.
  7. Get rid of the pulp and pour the juice into a glass.

The process is really simple but quite time-consuming. However, you will get a very healthy and natural fruit juice.

How to make fruit juice with a blender?

Orange juice

This procedure consists of several stages.

  1. The first stage is choosing the right vegetables and fruits for making fresh juice. It is best to give preference to seasonal fruits and vegetables that you can find in your region. In this case, you can be sure of their origin and ecological cleanliness.
  2. The second stage is the preparation for making the juice. Before you drop the fruit or vegetables into the blender (or grind them with a hand blender), they should be thoroughly washed and peeled; also remove the seeds and pits. Cut fruits and vegetables into small pieces so it will be easier to grind them.
  3. The third stage is the most crucial in the process of making fruit juice in a blender. Shred the pieces of fruits and vegetables until you get a smooth mixture. Then pour it into a piece of gauze or any other filter suspended over a bowl to drain the mixture. Solid particles and the pulp will remain on the filter, and you will get a delicious and natural fruit juice made with a blender with your hands.
  4. If you like a less concentrated juice, then you can pour boiled water into your juice and leave it to cool for several hours. Then strain the infusion, add sugar to taste and enjoy your delicious juice.

Another nice option is to make fruit smoothies. A smoothie is a thick drink mixed in a blender with berries or fruits along with dairy products, and lots of people like it nowadays. But what if you do not have a blender? Let us take a look at how to make a smoothie without a blender.

How to make a delicious smoothie at home?

Smoothie

Take an ordinary fine grater and grate the ingredients you have chosen.

If the ingredients are very juicy (like an orange or a watermelon), then a sieve would be helpful for you. You can also use gauze if you want to squeeze out the juice of very juicy fruits.

Pour all squeezed components into a jar, close the lid, shake it vigorously and your smoothie is ready.

Here are some recipes for tasty and simple fruit smoothies you can make at home.

Banana & peach smoothie

Banana smoothie

To prepare the drink you will need:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 large peach
  • 3-4 large strawberries
  • 50 ml of natural yogurt

Peel the banana, wash the peach and strawberries. Put all the ingredients into your blender and add yogurt. Whip it with a mixer or mixing bar. Pour into a glass, add ice and a bit of fresh mint. If you like to experiment, you can try to add honey, cinnamon and vanilla, but use them reasonably.

The citrus smoothie recipe

Orange smoothie

It can be made from these ingredients:

  • 1 orange
  • 100 g of fresh or frozen spinach
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 green apple
  • 100 ml of mineral water

Use a gauze to squeeze the juice from the orange. Chop the spinach and grate the carrots and apples. Put the chopped spinach and carrot-apple puree in a jar, pour in your orange juice and shake well. Pour your mixture into a cup, add clean water if you like and stir with a spoon.

You can also use pineapple juice instead of water; it will reduce the calorie in your cocktail.

Now you know how to make your own fruit juice; there are several ways of doing it and they are all simple and easy. Enjoy the delicious natural taste of your own homemade fruit juice.
