The Secret to Making Homemade Juice Taste Better

Tomato Juice

Why make homemade juice?

Who likes that stuff anyway? Right? Well, you might be surprised how much you like the benefits such as feeling better, longer life expectancy, and better overall health.

But why does juice (green or vegetable juice) have to taste so bad?

It’s those vegetables that people have tried to feed you ever since you were a baby that are so gosh-darned good for you. So, why does it have to taste bad? If you’re like me, you’ve often thought, “If it tastes this bad, it must be good for me.”

Is there a way to make homemade veggie juice taste good?

In-deedy there is! It’s a secret that’s been passed around the juicing industry for a long time. As more and more people get juicers for their own homes, the secret is getting out.

Calling it a secret may be a little dramatic, but if most people don’t know it, then it is a secret until it’s…REVEALED…dah-dah-duuuh!

So what is the secret to making homemade vegetable juice taste good.

See if you can figure it out with this clue:

When you go the store and buy juice that might have a strong taste or bite to it, what does the juice product advertise? Usually, it’s written 100% real juice. So if it’s 100% juice, why doesn’t the store-bought juices taste like homemade juice?

It’s because they added sweet tasting fruit juice into the juicing mix! That’s the secret, and now that you know it too, guard it well against never-do-wells.

Can that really be the secret to better tasting juice?

Yep. All you need to do when using your juicer at home is to add in some of the following fruits, and your vegetable mixes will start tasting much better.

Fruits to add:

  • Apples
  • Oranges
  • Lemons or Limes for some zing!
  • Grapes
  • Kiwi
  • Apricots
  • Nectarines
  • Mangos

You may want to add other fruits such as cherries or pomegranates. You could also add some sweet tasting melons to the mix (I’d suggest cutting them up before trying to add them to your mix).

Where to make homemade juice?

Well, start first off in the home. Second, you’ll want a good juicer.

If you use a sub-par juicer, you’ll spend loads of time chopping your fruits and veggies to get them to fit into the juicer machine. You’ll also likely be frustrated with the speed, capacity, and efficiency.

Our pick is the 800 jexl by Breville. Send in the fruits and veggies and it can take care of it all.
