How to make strawberry juice
There are a couple of ways to make them, using juicer or blender. When using the juicer, the straining part is already done by the machine and it is ready to drink or ready to customize. But when using a blender, you have to manually strain and serve.
Strawberry juice ingredients
Strawberry. It is a fantastic bundle of a sweet and sour taste. It is a great source of Vitamin C, potassium, Maganese and folate. The fruit, juicy strawberry is great for making this juice. It brings bright color and rich taste to the juice. But frozen fruits are also a great option for making when you are planning for a party or on special moments.
Sugar. The batch of strawberry I had now is sour and definitely needed sugar to neutralize the taste. So I have added honey in here. But you may skip using the sugar or use natural sugar like agave nectar or maple syrup.
Salt. A small pinch is way too much for a glass of juice. I strongly recommend using when the fruits are tangy. It is a good neutralizer along with the sugar. The salt taste minimizes the sugar required for making the excellent juice.
Lemon juice. This is optional too. Add lemon juice if the strawberry is ripened and sweet. Lemon juice adds a kick and balances well the sugar and the salt.
Add 2 cups of strawberries and 4 cups of water to the blender. And pulse until the fruit crushed finely.
In a mixing bowl, rest a strainer over it. Pour the fruit mixer.
Press the fruits over the strainer using a ladle to extract the juice to the maximum.
Remove the strainer.
Add salt, honey, to the juice.
Pour it to the tall glasses filled with ice cubes and serve.
Strawberry juice over smoothie
I often see the western world leans towards smoothie than the juice. Whereas Juices are the popular drinks in Eastern countries.
Smoothie has retained the fibers. But the fiber loss in this strawberry juice recipe is minimal than you think of. Since we are crushing to the maximum, and the residue that you discard after extracting is less. And the good part is that you can use the leftover for making chutney or jam.
Moreover, a smoothie is a meal and this juice is a healthy fun drink. this juice is adorable when serving at the party.
Strawberry juice recipe Variations
