Apple Juice Recipe
I thought about doing this post and thought it might be too simple, but simple recipes are always the best right? So I decided to do it, so here I am. Hello.
I love fresh apple juice bought from the farmers market stands. Last year I got my hands on a juicer (thanks Dad!) and ever since then I’ve been livin la vida juicing! When we went apple picking last year I spent hours making cider over the stove, simmering it and adding spices, and yes it was delicious – but it was a long process.
Is apple juice good for you?
Apple juice is very good for you! Apples are linked to lowering the risk of diabetes, weight loss, health benefits to you heart and some substances in apples may help prevent cancer. A apple a day really does keep the doctor away!
Apple juice is packed with vitamins, calcium, potassium and fiber. It’s the perfect healthy rink!
How to Juice
With my juicer I have fresh apple juice within minutes. So I’m going to show you how to make apple juice! Juicing, it’s changed my life.
Also I’d like to mention that when I made apple cider last year Matthew was “so so” about it, but this year when I’m making it au naturel he can’t get enough. He’s buying me apples left and right, throwing them at me, leaving them under my pillow. I get the hint! 1 ingredient apple juice is great!
Healthy Apple Juice Recipe
So the ingredients in this recipe is: Apples. That’s it. No sugars. No honey. No water. No spices. Just good ol apples. And a smile. Every recipe should have a smile.
So about the juicer, if you don’t have one, I recommend you stop what you’re doing then rush to Amazon and buy one. This is the one I have and it’s fantastic for apples, oranges, greens, everything. You know what else rules? Apple and spinach juice. I love that stuff.
This powerful juicer makes juice in seconds! It’s easy to clean and it even comes with a good little scrub brush. It comes with a anti foam cup so you can pour the juice out and not get the foam if you aren’t into that. Anyways, you should get a juicer. If I was Oprah I would yell at you all “YOU’RE GETTING A JUICER! YOU’RE GETTING A JUICER! YOU’RE GETTING A JUICER!” but I’m not Oprah, so I’m sorry.
How to Make Apple Juice
Gather your apples. You can make apple juice from any type of apple but the juicer varieties are the best to get the most juice from. Red Delicious, Gala and Fuji are my favorite apples to use.
Depending on the size of your juicer you might have to cut your apples in half.
Some people like to remove the seeds from the apples before putting in the juicer. This is totally optional and up to you. Apple seeds do contain a small amount of a cyanide compound, but the body can handle this in small amounts without worry. Again, totally up to you. If I’m feeling lazy and want a quick juice I’m probably just going to throw the apples in whole.
A few apples go in and the cup stars to fill up. This is the anti foam cup I was telling you about. When you pour it out into a pitcher or glass, only the juice comes out, the foam is left in this cup.
A few minutes later, a entire pitcher of apple juice was made! Grab a glass and enjoy!
Can you freeze apple juice?
Yes, you can easily freeze apple juice! If you go apple picking, you might be left with many pounds of apples! Don’t worry – turn them into apple juice! Freeze juice in freezer safe containers or freezer bags. After thawing out, pour in a cup, and stir as needed. The juice might be a little bit cloudier than usual, but it still tastes delicious!
