Summaryblueberry-plum-juice

Today’s juice makes use of two delicious fruits that are currently in season and available at your local farmers market. The first is the luscious and nutritious blueberry. The second is the sweet and juicy plum. Combined together, they make a sweet and nutritious nectar that’s perfect for enjoying on hot days.

Plums are a member of the peach family of fruits. But interestingly, they’re also a member of the almond family. Although plums originated in China, they’re currently grown all over the world. There are many different varieties of plums, but they’re all defined by their tart outer skin and soft sweet interior. Plums are known for their gentle laxative effects, but they’re also a significant source of vitamins A and K. Plums are great for juicing due to their relatively high water content. Before you juice plums it’s necessary to remove their pits. Although this may take a bit of time, the blueberries are very easy to prepare and only need to be rinsed prior to juicing.

Ingredients

  • 4 Medium ripe plums
  • 1 Cup of Blueberries
  • 1 Handful of cranberries or strawberries

Directions

  • Remove the pits from all of the plums. Failing to do so will result in damage to your juicer, as plum pits can be quite hard.

  • Juice all ingredients on your juicer’s lowest speed setting.
  • Pour the delicious nectar over ice and enjoy.
