When making juice, nothing beats your trusty juicer. If for any reason your juicer is out of commission, however, your blender is actually a very good replacement. In fact, a good blender can juice almost as well as that juicer you love so much. Not sure how to use a blender to juice? Not to worry! This article contains all you need to know to get started. 

Let’s get right into it!

  • Blender

How to Use a Blender to Juice

Step 1: Prepare your ingredients

Firstly, you need to get your ingredients. Gather your ingredients and wash your fruits and vegetables thoroughly, depending on the kind of juice you want to make. Would you be using water, a splash of tea, coconut water, or aloe vera juice? You should also get those ready as well.  

Step 2: Prepare your mix

Next, you’ll want to prepare your fruit mix. Slice up your fruits or vegetables into tiny bits. Doing so makes the blending process easier on your blender and helps you achieve smoother results.

If you’re making juice with fruits that tend to leave stains like grapes, berries, or carrots, you’ll need to put on your gloves to avoid staining your skin. You should also wear an apron to prevent getting your clothes stained. 

Step 3: Put in your ingredients one at a time

Now. it’s time to get your ingredients into your blender. Start with pouring in about half a cup or a full cup of your water, aloe vera juice, coconut water, or any other liquid of your choice into your blender. Then, it’s time for the fruit mix to go in.

If you have many different fruits or vegetables you want to juice, you might want to add each one into the blender separately, blend them, and then mix them all together then blend again. This helps keep your blender safe and prevents it from jamming.

When placing your ingredients into the blender, make sure not to stuff the blender as this would make blending difficult and might jam the blades. This might end up damaging your blender. Instead of placing all the ingredients in at once, you could simply blend in stages. 

Step 4: Blend your mix

Once you have put in all your ingredients, now you can turn up your blender at high speeds. It takes less than a minute to blend your mix into a smooth mix with a thick consistency. However, the blend can get better. 

Step 5: Pour your juice

Once you’ve gotten your thick mix, grab your bowl and your milk bag. Place the milk bag into the bowl and pour the mix into the milk bag. If you’re working with ingredients that stain, you’ll want to have on your glove and apron.  

Once you’ve got it all into the milk bag, gently massage the bag to get all of the juice out into the bowl. Keep massaging until all that is left within the milk bag is pulp. Even without a juicer, you can still get great juice using this method.

If you’re thinking of what to do with the pulp, you could use it to make cookies or add it to your salad. In the end, nothing needs to be wasted. 

Step 6: Enjoy!

If you followed all the steps above, well then congratulations, you have yourself a great juice made with a blender. Go ahead and pour it into a glass and enjoy your drink.

If you want to store it, you can add some lemon juice to the mix and store it in a jar. However, I wouldn’t advise storing it longer than a day in your refrigerator. Juice is best taken fresh as you would be getting all the nutrients out of it.
