How To Juice in 5 Easy Steps

If you are interested in juicing here is how to juice in five easy steps.

If you have been reading this blog for a while then you know I am a serious JUICER!  I even wrote a blog post on how to shop and find the right juicer for you.  

Assuming you have found the very best juicer you can find within your price point, now I am going to share how to juice in 5 easy steps.

Washing fruit and vegetables

Step 1: Wash your produce

This step is EXTREMELY important.  Fresh organic produce is very much that and should always be washed thoroughly before juicing.  While it won’t have pesticides and such, it will have dirt, bugs and other contaminates that you will need to wash off.  

I wash my produce in a sink full of COLD water with about 3 capfuls of white vinegar.  I let it sit for about 15 minutes and then rinse off everything fully while scrubbing it with a brush and my hands.  

NO your juice will not smell or taste like vinegar but if you look at the bottom of the sink, you will see all of the dirt and sediment from your produce.

Fresh cut prepped fruit

Step 2:  Cut up your produce

Make sure you cut up all of your produce so that it easily fits down the chute of your juicer.  

This step is essential and very easy to do.  For my apples and pears I use my Pampered Chef corer but you can find one anywhere like Walmart, Target, the grocery store or Bed, Bath and Beyond.  

OR just simply cut it up by hand and discard the core with the seeds which are slightly arsenic.

Step 3:  Juice your produce

I don’t have a photo of it right now because I didn’t want to bore you but simply place your cut up produce down the chute easily and in a manner that won’t clog the chute or your juicer motor.  

If you have a masticating juicer that is easy to do so make sure you feed it slowly and use your plunger as needed but don’t force anything.

Strain your juice

Step 4:  Strain your juice

If you want less pulpy juice you can strain it with a strainer into a bowl so that is smooth.  I prefer mine without the thick pulp so this is what I do.  

It’s an extra 3 or 4 minutes but well worth it because it is then really JUICE with no chewy bits in it.  

It tastes just like the cold-pressed raw juice you purchase online or Whole Foods.

Put your fresh-pressed raw juice in jars

Step 5:  Store your juice

After you have strained your juice simply pour in mason jars, tighten the top and store in the refrigerator for  no more than 3 days.  My juice doesn’t last that long, I can drink a single jar in 1 sitting.  I know I’m greedy.  LOLOL.

If you want an easy reminder of these steps, simply PIN THIS graphic below and it will easily remind you of the steps you need to take to make your very own juice.

    Great tips! I’m a smoothy person myself. I like my veggie/fruit drinks a little thicker so it’s more like I’m drinking a sweet shake. Love the jar idea – I do that too! Making smoothies for a couple days ensures I drink them more.
