Homemade Fruit juice Recipes


* No Juicer Required

For these recipes you will need a sieve, the lovely CoyIntrovert was kind enough to send me the Nigerian style sieve recently and I am forever indebted to her.

Strawberry Chill

Ingredients:

1 dozen strawberries

Juice of 2 lemons

Sugar or fresh squeezed Sugar cane juice to taste

Direction:

  • Put the strawberries in a blender, add 2 cups of water and puree until smooth.
  • Place your sieve over a large bowl; pour the puréed mixture through the sieve. If using the Nigerian style clothe sieve, gently squeeze on the content of the sieve to remove left over juice otherwise use a big spatula to press the pureed mixture.
  • Add 2-3 cups more water to the squeezed juice, add in the lemon juice, sugar and set in the fridge to chill.

Enjoy!!

Cucumber Lime Juice

Ingredients:

2 large size cumbers (cubed)

Juice of 2 limes

Sugar to taste

Direction:

  • Put the cubed Cucumbers in a blender, add 1 cups of water and puree until smooth.
  • Place your sieve over a large bowl; pour the puréed mixture through the sieve. If using the Nigerian style clothe sieve, gently squeeze on the content of the sieve to remove left over juice otherwise use a big spatula to press the pureed mixture
  • Add 2 cups more water to the squeezed juice, add in the limejuice, sugar and set in the fridge to chill.

Enjoy!

Homemade Mango Juice

    Love this. I have been held back from making my own juices because I don’t have a juicer and I always thought that to make perfect juices, one needs a proper juicer. I would definitely try these recipes. Thankfully all the ingredients (including fresh strawberries which I recently found out are grown in Jos) can be found in Nigeria.
