Ingredients to make apple juice in a blender

The ingredients for a refreshing apple juice could not be simpler. All you will need is:

  • Fresh Apples
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • Sugar (optional)
  • A blender
  • A knife and peeler
  • A fine mesh strainer such as cheesecloth, a nut milk bag or even pantyhose!


Process: How to make apple juice with a blender

  • Clean, peel and chop the apples, removing the core and the apple seeds
  • Ensure that the apples are chopped small enough to fit comfortably in the blender
  • Add the chopped apples to the blender along with a small amount of plain water which will help the juice to bind the apples into a smooth consistency.
  • Finally, if you want to remove the apple pulp, tip the mixture into the nut milk bag or the cheesecloth and manually squeeze the liquid through into a container below.
  • Alternatively, if you want to make clear apple juice, then use a coffee filter and allow the juice to drip through for several hours.


How do I store the apple juice at home?

The best way to enjoy homemade apple juice is to serve immediately with ice cubes if you prefer. However, apple juice can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge, with a shelf life of up to 5 days. You will be able to tell that the apple juice is turning, as it will turn brown once it oxidizes. You can add some lemon juice or citric juice to delay this process slightly.

You can also freeze apple juice immediately, which will help to lock in some of the nutrients. Simply place in a container or even in ice cube trays and then take them out to thaw in the fridge.
