Pomegranate Berry Juice Recipe

by | Jul 27, 2022 | Juicing for Health

Description

Wow, this juice recipe is super nutritious and tasty.

When you make fresh Pomegranate juice at home using a Kuvings cold press juicer you are also extracting the nutrition from the seeds. They get crushed in the press extracting more nutrients. When you buy store-bought pomegranate juice it is only made from the red flesh of the fruit.

I added coconut water to the recipe because it pairs well with the other ingrediets but it also flushes the juicer, extracting even more valuable phytonutrients for you to consume.

The final juice is thick and creamy from plenty of pulp that pushes through the juice strainer. The taste is quite sweet and a little tart which I really enjoyed.

 

Ingredients

    • 1 pomegranate
    • 125g blueberries
    • 2 apples, red
    • 1 ginger piece (2cm)
    • 250ml coconut water

Juicing Time: 10 mins
Juice Qty: 750 ml
Serves: 3

Preparation

Pomegranate

  • Cut into two halves
  • Squeeze out the seeds over a bowl
  • Tap the back of the shell with spoon to get all seeds out
  • Juice seeds one spoonful at a time

Blueberries

  • No preparation needed
  • Juice whole

Apples

  • Remove the stems and remove any stickers
  • Juice apples whole with skin and seeds
  • Cut in half or quarters if too big to fit into the wide chute

Ginger

  • Cut off a 2cm thick piece
  • Cut into thin slices leaving the skin on

 

Method

Close the cap on the juicer.

Add the pomegranate seed into the chute using a spoon or ladle. Go slowly allowing the juicer to press through before adding more seeds.

Next, add the blueberries. Let the juicer mix them together before releasing the cap.

Add the ginger followed by the whole apples one at a time.

Close the cap again and pour in the coconut water. Let the water rinse the inside of the juicer before releasing it into the juice.

 

Tip: you can buy the pomegranate arils (seeds) fresh on their own if you cannot get whole pomegranates. You can also use blueberries and pomegranate seeds from frozen, just remember to defrost completely before juicing them!

Health Benefits

Category: Brain, Antioxidants

Pomegranate

Pomegranate is a great blood builder, as it strengthens both red and white cell counts.

Pomegranate is affectionately known as "The Jewel of Winter Fruits" because of its precious jewel like seeds. It is the perfect addition to your winter juice menu. They are an excellent weight loss food and benefit the body by boosting the immune system and improving circulation.

Pomegranate juice significantly reduces ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) activity, helping lower blood pressure, preventing heart disease and reducing the risk of stroke.

Pomegranates may help to dissolve gallstones and kidney stones, nodules, calcifications, and small cysts such as ganglia cysts. They also have anti-tumor properties.

Pomegranates are also the perfect “brain food” as they help to increase cognitive function and memory recall. Pomegranates are also great for joints and may help to prevent cartilage deterioration making them essential for the prevention of osteoarthritis. 

Blueberries

The most intriguing health benefit of fresh blueberries is that they may actually reverse the loss of short-term memory that happens as we age.

They also act as an unusual type of pro-biotic by blocking the attachment of bacteria that cause urinary tract infections. They contain chemicals that curb diarrhea and also have viral activity and are high in natural
aspirin.

Anthocyanin is the pigment that makes the blueberries blue and is thought to be responsible for the major health benefit of preventing cancer.

Blueberries are believed to have one of the highest antioxidant levels of all common fruits and vegetables.

Apple

Apples are the Queen of all fruits. the old saying "an apple a day..." is truly ancient wisdom as they protect and heal every human body system and cell.

Apples are a true healing food.

Apple juice provides living water to support the liver’s hydration capabilities, so it can store the water and then release it back into the bloodstream when the blood becomes dehydrated and isn’t flowing very well.

Apples are high in a soluble fibre (still in the juice) called pectin that forms a gel-like substance in the intestine. This gel can bind to cholesterol, removing it from the body, which may aid in reducing blood pressure levels.

Apples also starve viruses. When their pectin fibers enter the digestive system, they release phytochemicals that bind onto viruses, shrouding viral cells so that they can’t feed and proliferate.

They are also high in malic acid that binds with any heavy metals in the brain. The word 'malic' comes from the Latin word 'malum', meaning 'apple' which is why I recommend to people who have brain or neurological symptoms to consume more apples.

Ginger

Ginger is one of the world’s oldest and most popular medicinal spices. It is known to greatly aid in digestion and assimilation and is widely regarded to help prevent colds, flu, motion sickness, and vertigo.

Ginger is like every's favourite Auntie (anti). Anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-spasmodic, anti-nausea, anti-bacterial. 

Ginger will support your overall immune system, so is great to use during the winter months, to help fight off colds. Gingerols in ginger cause a rapid and noticeable widening of the blood vessel walls and in turn helps to enhance circulation and also lower blood pressure.
