The deep blue color of this yummy Blueberry Juice looks beautiful, but it’s not just a pretty color! 

Did you know that the pigment in blueberries that creates this color plays a vital role in their health benefits? It’s called anthocyanin and has many health benefits, including anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anticancer, and anti-microbial properties. Antioxidants can help fight free radicals and lower blood pressure.

Blueberry juice and most other fruit juices including orange juice are also a source of vitamin C which benefits the immune system.

So, if you like blueberries, you’ll be happy to know that they’re one of the healthiest fruits you can enjoy in your daily diet. Eat them raw, add them to your morning oatmeal, add them to salads, or make this refreshing and delicious homemade blueberry juice to get all those powerful health benefits daily.

Key Ingredients

You can easily make your own Blueberry Juice at home, and you only need two main ingredients.

Blueberries

Ripe blueberries are sweet, juicy, and tangy. They make the best juice with the best results! Your juice will be a little tart if the berries are not fully ripened.

To select the sweetest (and juiciest!) blueberries, look for ones that are plump and deep, dark blue with a light dusting of gray on the surface. If it’s too firm or looks a little red, it’s probably not ripe. The darker the berry is, the better for making fresh blueberry juice.

Check for evenly sized berries with smooth, unblemished, and unbroken skin. The silvery coating on blueberries is entirely normal. It’s called “the bloom,” and it’s there to keep the blueberries juicy and help protect them from insects and bacteria.

Avoid very soft, shriveled blueberries or ones showing any signs of mold.

Sugar

You can use any type of granulated sugar for this recipe, or a natural sweetener of your choice, for example, agave syrup, honey, or maple syrup.

I like using coconut sugar or agave syrup in this recipe because the milder flavors work well with the blueberries. Or, if your berries are very sweet, leave out the added sugar altogether.

Water

For thicker juice, feel free to use less water in this recipe.

If you like the mild flavor of coconut water, you can use this instead of regular water.

Special Equipment 

You’re set if you have a blender or food processor in your kitchen. Either will work well.

You could also use an immersion blender.

If you don’t like to have tiny bits of blueberry skins in your juice, you will need a fine mesh strainer for running the Blueberry Juice through a few times. It will also help remove some of the seed residues.

Recipe Steps

This Blueberry Juice is so easy to make and only has a few simple steps. Check the recipe card below for exact quantities and detailed instructions. 

Step One

Wash the blueberries thoroughly in a large bowl with fresh water. The best way is to add the cup of blueberries to a bowl, add the water, and then drain the water from the berries using a colander.

Step Two

Place the blueberries, sugar, and water in a high-speed blender or food processor, and blend until it’s smooth.

A slow juicer is not ideal for juicing berries as they are too soft.

Step Three

Strain the juice through a mesh strainer or a few layers of cheesecloth until it is filtered to create a smooth juice. Scoop any foam off the top with a spoon.

Omit this step if you don’t mind tiny bits of blueberry skin and seeds.

Step Four

Transfer to glasses, and serve immediately.

I hope this fresh juice using fresh berries becomes one of your favorite recipes! You can drink the juice straight, or use it in your favorite recipes or in fruit smoothies.
