Making real juice from fruit and vegetables.

There are many media articles advocating the consumption of more fruit and vegetables. After due consideration, I arrived at the opinion, that the commercial juice offered has to be almost a fraud. I suggest in essence, canned juice is no more than mostly water, flavor of the fruit selected, and a vitamin pill, hence I decided to make my own "juice". For example, if the juice is beneficial, then the whole fruit or (vegetable) has to be better. The blended method utilizes all the fiber, which contains about 35% of the subject nutrients. The texture may be controlled with water, such that one can chew the mixture or by drinking.

The selection can be anything that is available. My consumption is about a liter a day of a current mixture. The mixture keeps in the refrigerator in a sealed jar with no sign of deterioration for about a week. Often a glassful is taken with meals. Conversely, one could make it fresh at each serving, since the effort is minimal.

This method makes real juice. Fruit and vegetables from the garden are utilized if available. Others are purchased as necessary. I use what is available at any given time. Enough water is added to make the mixture possible to drink. I consume about one liter per day and use the blended mixture sort of like a thirst quencher. Healthy?

Making juice from available produce, cranberries, pineapple, oranges, limes and muskmelon. This will be about a weeks supply for one person. The texture is decided by the amount of water added when blending. As an exercise compare this to the concoction sold in Supermarkets under the guise of being called juice. Cost about $12.00 Cdn.
