How to make your own Pomegranate juice

Dec 16, 2020 | Recipes

Pomegranates have a variety of health benefits. Just one cup of arils (the berry) contains 7 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein! They are extremely high in antioxidants and punicic acids.

To make Pomegranate juice, first fill a large bowl with warm water. Place two pomegranates inside the bowl for one minute. Make two cuts all the way around the pomegranates. Make sure to only cut through the rind this is about 1cm.

Keep the pomegranate under water and use your knife to pry open the pomegranate. Now split your quadrants apart by using my hands, this will separate the berries from the rind. Doing this underwater keeps the splatter down.

Once all the berries are separate the leftover pulp will float to the top. You can skim this out with your hands or pour it out.

It’s okay to leave some of the pulp as I’ll strain through a cheesecloth.

I now put the berries into the vita-mix blender and add water just enough to go a little over the line of the berries. I use a vita-mix over my nutri-bullet because its much more powerful! Two pomegranates converts to about 2.5 cups of berries. Blend it on the highest speed.

Pour the blend through the cheesecloth. Squeeze out all the pomegranate goodness.

I use my finger to keep some of the bubbles away as I pour the juice into my drinking glass. Enjoy!

Should you get a Nutri-Bullet Blender

I have been making healthy smoothies and juices for over a year now with my nutri-bullet blender, and maybe some not so healthy milkshakes. I like this blender because it has a very ergonomic design. The blades screw onto the top of the blender cup, which is quite convenient. This single piece could be replaced instead of the whole unit if the blades were to dull. The blender also comes with two...
