There is something more refreshing when juice is made from fewer and fresher ingredients, and this strawberry juice recipe has these qualities. The strawberries and small amount of sugar keeps the drink sweet, while the lemon juice gives it a slight tartness.

It is also better knowing that it is made in a blender, meaning less cleanup and less time spent before being able to sip on this nutritious beverage. Here are some tips and information on how to make strawberry juice.

When making a drink with fresh fruit, there are bound to be some health benefits. It is full of the good stuff, so there shouldn’t be any guilt in drinking homemade strawberry juice, especially if you leave out the sugar. The strawberry juice benefits range from health to beauty.

Strawberries are packed with antioxidants and fiber. The fiber comes from strawberry pulp, so if you want a health boost in your strawberry juice, I recommend keeping the pulp. There are minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium and manganese that help increase bone health and lower blood pressure.

As for beauty, the antioxidants and vitamin E and C in strawberries can treat skin inflammation and help to reduce age spots and wrinkles. Plus, vitamin C is great for the immune system and eyesight. A phytochemical present in strawberries called Ellagic acid, helps to prevent collagen destruction.

Does strawberry juice stain? Unfortunately, yes. Whether it is from the cut-up fruit or the finished drink, strawberry stains are difficult to wash off, especially when they don’t react well to soap. Here are some steps to wash out stubborn strawberry stains:

  • First, blot (don’t rub) the stain with a clean cloth or paper towel immediately.
  • Next, rinse any excess off with cool water (hot water can set some stains, so stick to cool water).
  • Mix 1 tbsp. of white vinegar and 2/3 cup of rubbing alcohol in a bowl.
  • Dip a cloth into the mixture and blot the stain until it is lifted.
  • Then throw it in the laundry using the hot water setting and detergent.
