5 Tips To Make Sugar-Free Fresh Juices for Your Family

Have you ever wondered how to make sugar-free fresh juices? The white sugar, after all, takes some goodness away from the freshly squeezed juice. But can I really just take away the sugar from a musambi juice. I find plain musambi juice so bland. With all the hard work involved in peeling, squeezing, blending & straining, I really look forward to a tasty outcome.

Well, I have figured out a way around this. If I use a combination of fruits, I can make really tasty juices. Of course, the fruits have to complement each other. Here are a few combinations and handy tips. Make sure you add as little water as possible while making the juice to avoid dilution of texture and taste.

#1 Musambi & Pomegranate

Proportion: 3 musambi and 1 pomegranate, half cup plain water. Serves 3

Peel and grind the musambis slightly in a juicer and strain. It’s important to grind slightly so that the seeds don’t chip but the pulpy part softens. Alternatively, you can squeeze the juice on a citrus fruit juicer. Grind the pomegranate, strain, and mix in the musambi juice. Serve fresh.

Tips: Use large size musambi as they are sweeter in taste. Similarly large size pomegranate are juicier.

#2 Orange & Pineapple

Proportion: 3 orange and 1/2 pineapple, half cup plain water. Serves 3

Peel and grind the orange slightly in a juicer and strain. It’s important to grind slightly so that the seeds do not chip but the pulpy part softens. Alternatively, you can squeeze the juice on a citrus fruit juicer. Grind the peeled pineapple fully, strain and mix in the orange juice. Serve fresh.

Tips : When peeling the pineapple, you can leave  the pineapple eyes intact for minimal wastage.  Also, buy pineapple which has turned yellow. They are the sweetest.

Replace the orange with musambi when orange goes off-season.

 

#4 Apple & Mint

Proportion: 2 apples and a bunch of mint leaves, half cup plain water. Serves 2

Peel and deseed the apples. Add the mint leaves to the peeled apples and grind fully in a juicer. Strain and serve fresh.

Tips: Vary the number of mint leaves as per your taste. You may add half a lemon for added flavor.

 

#5 Watermelon & Mint

Proportion: 1/4 watermelon and a bunch of mint leaves, no added water. Serves 2

Cut the red part of the watermelon into medium pieces. Add the mint leaves and grind slightly in a juicer. Strain and serve fresh.

Tips: Watermelon juice can lead to ingestion. Mint leaves add flavor and aid digestion.

 

If you have noticed, I have insisted on serving the juice fresh. Research shows that it’s ideal to consume fresh juice within 10 mins of preparation. To know more on the subject read Why do I struggle to stay fit despite eating healthy food ?
