Making strawberry juice at home is quick and easy, and delivers a really flavorful juice that’s rich in nutrients. It’s one of the easier fresh juices to make without a juice machine and can be easily stored for future days.

This is a thicker juice and is similar in flavor to a fresh Strawberry Puree. This fresh strawberry juice is delicious on its own, or we adults can use it as a component in mixed drinks or to flavor sparkling water. This is a great drink for kids and is also a wonderfully yummy hydrating food.

This is a great use of ripe strawberries and is so quick and easy to make. It’s one of our favorite strawberry recipes. (Learn how to store strawberries so they stay fresh!)

  • Strawberries: I usually make this with fresh berries, but you can also use thawed frozen strawberries. I remove the green stems before adding the berries to the blender.
  • Lime or lemon: A little fresh lime juice or lemon juice brightens the flavor of the juice. You can use lemon if you prefer.
  • Honey or maple syrup: You can taste your blended juice and adjust the sweetness with an optional sweetner. It may depend on the berries you have and your preference.
