Blueberries are often referred to as a superfood by many nutritionists, and they are extremely healthy to create fresh raw homemade juice with. Blueberry juice contains huge amounts of vitamin C, vitamin K, and manganese, as well as moderate amounts of vitamin A, vitamin E, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, and many others. If you're not drinking fresh blueberry juice then get moving on it today.
1. For step you will want to thoroughly wash and rinse your fresh blueberries under cool to lukewarm tap water. Be sure to inspect the small indent at the top of each berry for bugs or spiders, as that is typically the location where they like to hang out.
2. Always remove the blueberry stems and any blueberry greens as they are generally regarded as being unfit to extract juice from. I also do recommend that you discard any bruised or unripe blueberries as both can ruin the overall flavor of your fresh made blueberry juice.
3. When juicing blueberries I like to use my masticating juicer as it has the power to extract the abundant amounts of the rich antioxidants and oils from the blueberry skin. A centrifugal juicer will work with blueberries however it will not be able to extract the same volume of nutrients and juice that a masticating juicer will. Owning both types of juicers is strongly recommended, as I like to use one for juicing dense produce and the other for bulk quantities of low density or soft produce.
4. Once you have extracted the amount of blueberry juice that you desire then do take the extra time to stir the juice very well, as this will even out the flavor. Depending on how sweet or sour your blueberries are, you might consider stirring in a teaspoon of bees honey into the juice as this will work well is balancing out some of the tartness.
5. I strongly recommend blueberry carrot juice as it's an absolute mega health tonic. If you drink a liter of blueberry carrot juice several times a week then you should start to quickly notice positive changes to your hair, nails, skin, kidney function, as well as a strengthening of your immune system. Blueberry juice also tastes great juiced along with leafy greens such as kale, spinach, arugula, and romaine lettuce.
6. Blueberry juice tastes amazing mixed with raw homemade nut or seed milks such as almond milk and hemp seed milk. The homemade nut milk will also dramatically reduce the blueberry juice's sometimes overly tart and tangy flavor.
