Making grape juice can be tricky, but it doesn’t have to be! This blog post will show you how easy it can be by providing detailed instructions along with some pros and cons of using blenders for juicing.
This juice is really delicious! In fact, the grape juice you make using this method will be better than store-bought. It also has many health benefits and can do wonders in terms of energy, immunity, and even weight loss! Most importantly, it’s 100% natural and needs no additives or preservatives.
- 2 cups Red Concord Grapes, fresh or frozen (frozen grapes work well too)
- 1/2 teaspoon of Salt (optional)
- Blender, Juicer, or Electric Mixer
Step #1: Prepare Ingredients
Remove the stems from the grapes before using them. If you use fresh grapes, wash them thoroughly to eliminate any bad odor or pesticide residue on the inner skin. This will ensure that your juice is tasty and free of toxic substances. If the grapes have an awful smell, then it might be best to discard them as they may contain some pesticide residue or even mold, which is not good for your health.
Step #2: Blend These Ingredients Together
Put the grapes, salt, and ice cubes in a blender. Set aside the blender cups and your hand mixer. I used a Vita-mix blender which has a capacity of 64 ounces (2 liters) and worked perfectly for this task.
Step #3: Squeeze Out the Juice…..
Switch on the blender. If you are using a hand mixer, then blend for about 2-3 minutes to get some juice out. This is actually more advisable as it will give you the best quality of juice. Do not add any water just yet because doing so will lower down its nutrients and vitamins, which we do not want to happen.
Step #4: Add the water to your Blender
If you are using a hand mixer, add some cool water and blend for another 2-3 minutes or until you can no longer hear any noise. It will take approximately 5-6 minutes in all to get out most of the juice.
Step #5: Strain it through a hand strainer
Blend until the noise becomes minimal. When you can no longer hear any sound coming from your blender, then stop blending but leave it on for about 5 minutes more so that froth and foam can settle down to the bottom.
Step #6: Strain it through a fine sieve (optional)
Using a hand strainer, pour the juice into another cup or container with a fine mesh. Gently squeeze any remaining juice out using your hand. You may need to do this step twice if you are not able to extract most of the juice from your grapes.
Step #7: Enjoy your homemade grape juice!
There you go, you have made a natural and delicious batch of grape juice to drink whenever you like! This will also be great for kids, especially those who refuse to drink milk or eat fruit. Children usually love the taste of grape juice, and it is also a great way to introduce them to the benefits of drinking juice.
Step #8: Drink your Grape Juice!
Drink this juice fresh or store it in airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You may need more than one glass, but remember that it’s high in natural sugars, so you will need to keep an eye on your blood sugar levels.
The Benefits Of Grape Juice:
This wonderful juice will do wonders for your health, and I’ll give you the main points here: It’s full of antioxidants essential in boosting your immunity and fighting disease. It detoxifies your body by flushing out harmful toxins, increases energy levels, and aids digestion.
This juice is also great for people with diabetes, so if you have diabetes, try this out for a change! You will be able to get over your cravings with this juice as it contains many antioxidants and other nutrients that will keep you healthy and strong.
So if you are looking to drink something full of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients, this is the perfect recipe for you! Try making lots of batches, so you won’t run out as your health should take in fresh juice rather than store-bought ones, which are filled with preservatives.
