How to Create a Juice Bar at Home

McKenzie Jones | January 1, 2022

If you need the motivation to make juicing part of your regular routine, we recommend setting your kitchen up for juicing success. In this article, our in-house chef, Mayra Lopez, details how to create and stock your own at-home juice bar to amplify your daily intake of fruits and veggies.

Fresh Fruits & Veggies

While we love frozen produce for smoothies, fresh is best for juicing. To start, rinse all of your produce with lukewarm water, peel or remove the skin as needed, and chop food items down to the right size – just small enough to fit easily into the food chute, without having to force pieces down with the food pusher. Remove the rind from any citrus fruits and the large pits from stone fruits. Store your prepped produce in airtight containers in your refrigerator so they’re ready to juice when you are.

Favorite “Boosts”

These are the ingredients that will take your juices to a whole new delicious level. Mayra’s go-to “boosts” include ginger root, turmeric root, cayenne pepper, raw honey, and herbs like parsley, mint, and basil. These can also be cleaned and stored in airtight containers so they’re prepped and ready to go.

Tools

“Have some good quality kitchen knives, as well as a cutting board on-hand to help with all your produce prep,” says Mayra.
