Fresh Strawberry Juice is an incredibly refreshing and refreshing beverage that you can make at anytime of year. The vibrant red color looks beautiful and the taste is full of summary strawberry flavor.

I was first introduced to pure Strawberry Juice at my local juice bar, and I was delighted by delicious it is.

Why You Need This Recipe

  • Strawberries are plump red berries that come into season in March in California. I always get so happy when I first start seeing them at the farmers’ markets!
  • Strawberries are super healthy and their juice is no exception. You’ll get a ton of vitamin C, plus other nutrients and some fiber.
  • You can make homemade Strawberry Juice using simple ingredients in a juicer, food processor, or a blender. I’ve included instructions for all appliances.

Key Ingredients

For this recipe, all you really need is a pint of fresh strawberries. You can also use frozen strawberries, but you’ll need to defrost them overnight in the refrigerator.

I also like to use some fresh lime juice to balance the sweetness of the strawberries. You can also add a touch of sweetness with maple syrup or sugar. If you want to keep your fresh fruit juice cold, you may also want some ice cubes.

Recipe Steps

I use an Omega masticating juicer to make all of my juices, but you can also use a food processor, blender, or even a hand blender. See my list of the best juicer blenders.

Step One

Wash and prep your strawberries. I like to remove the tops from the strawberries (called the hull), but you can leave them on if you prefer.

You can use a huller to remove the stems or just use a knife.

See the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact measurements.

Step Two

Feed the strawberries through the feeding tube of your juicer.

Or, to make this strawberry juice in a blender or food processor, simply combine the ingredients in the pitcher of a high-speed blender, along with 1/4 cup of water.

If using a blender or food processor, blend the ingredients until smooth.

Step Three

Blend and then strain the juice through a nut milk bag to get rid of the pulp.

This is a very similar method to how I make Watermelon Juice.

You can also use a hand immersion blender to blend the berries if you don’t have a full-size blender.

Step Four

Serve your juice immediately.

Fresh fruit juices in general are best served right after they are made.

  • Consider using organic strawberries as they are on the dirty dozen list of produce sprayed with pesticides. You can also check out my article on how to eat organic on a budget.
  • If you are using a masticating juicer to make your strawberry juice, you may need to add some hard textured fruits or vegetables to help the juicer work efficiently. You can use an apple or carrot to alternate with the strawberry pieces in the juicer.
  • Strawberry juice can also be mixed with other fruit juices including apple, lemon juice, orange, or grapefruit.

Recipe FAQs

What is strawberry juice good for?

Strawberry juice has some great health benefits including that it is high in vitamin C and antioxidants. There is also some research that strawberries are good for the skin including reducing age spots.

Why do you add lime juice to the recipe?

A bit of lime juice or lemon juice added to strawberry juice helps keep the color vibrant and also helps balance and enhance the flavors.

You can add it to muffins, pancakes, or cookies.

What else can I do with strawberry juice?

What blender or food processor do you recommend?

I use a Vitamix Explorian, but that is probably overkill for this recipe (it’s great for Strawberry Smoothies though). You can use almost any basic blender to make Strawberry Juice. You can also use any basic food processor. I use a Breville Sous Chef.

Strawberry Juice


Description

Strawberry Juice is not only beautiful, but it tastes great and it’s good for you. It’s a rich source of antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. Learn how to make homemade Strawberry Juice using a juicer, food processor, or a blender.


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, about 2 cups (see notes if using frozen strawberries)
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup or sugar (optional, for extra sweetness)
  • 1/4 cup water, only necessary if you are using a blender or a food processor to make the juice

Instructions

  1. Wash and hull your strawberries. If you are using a blender or a food processor to make your juice, then cut your strawberries into halves (cut the larger berries into quarters).
  2. If you are using a juicer, then run the strawberries through the juicer. Collect the juice and then stir in the lime juice and sweetener, if using.
  3. If you are using a food processor or blender, add the strawberries, lime juice, and sweetener (if using) to the base. You may also need 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of water to help the blender or food processor work efficiently. Blend or process on high for 20-30 seconds, or until the mixture is smooth.
  4. If you are using a blender, you may need to add ¼ to ½ cup of water to help the mixture blend.
  5. Then, pour the blended strawberry juice through a fine mesh colander, using a spatula to gently push the juice through the colander. You can also do this using a nut milk bag. You won’t catch all of the fiber, but you’ll strain out some of the fiber to get a clearer juice. Discard the strawberry fiber or save it and use it for another purpose.
  6. Serve the strawberry juice immediately.

Notes

  1. You can easily double or triple this recipe for more servings.
  2. Fresh juice is best served right after it’s made. But, it can be stored in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  3. You can use frozen strawberries in this recipe. Defrost your strawberries in a bowl in the refrigerator 24 hours before making the juice.

  5. Strawberry juice can also be mixed with other fruit juices including apple, orange, or grapefruit.
