I think Kiwis are one of the most beautiful fruits on Earth. Their unpromising hairy brown skin only covers the most amazing star-like juicy center.
Kiwi's tart flavor provides a delicious way to start the day with a smoothie or breakfast bowl. Not only are kiwi fruits an excellent source of vitamin C, but they also contain more potassium than bananas and provide over 6% of your daily recommended dietary fiber needs. With its unique flavor combination, kiwi is a great addition to salads, on sweet/savory toasts, or its own as a delicious mid-morning snack.
Kiwi juice also contains heart-healthy benefits, including reducing the risk of clots and reducing blood pressure levels. Plus, some research has been carried out that shows a link between kiwis and the reduction of chest issues. This includes asthma, prolonged coughing, wheezing, etc.
This fresh kiwi fruit juice is made with apples and celery for a delicious, hassle-free start to the day.
This was inspired by our kiwi juice recipe, where we pair fresh kiwi juice with mandarine oranges and cucumbers.

Read on: how to juice without a juicer (fully-explained technique) or see how to do it for this drink on the recipe card.
See our juice storing tips to understand better how to keep your leftover juices and retain as many of their ingredients' nutrients as possible.
- Green apples - use any other apples or citrus fruits like orange juice, clementines, and lime juice.
- Celery - use the same amount of cucumbers to substitute the juice's watery, hydrating, and salty components.
Juicer - choose a cold-pressed juicer (affiliate link)over a centrifugal juicer. They are a little more expensive but are definitely the best option in the long run. They yield more juice, and since there is no heat involved as there is in centrifugal users, your juice preserves more nutrients and oxidizes slower (lasts more).
- Blender- if you don't have a juicer, you will need a high-speed blender (affiliate link) and,
- Mesh strainer- when making juice, use a regular colander or nut milk bags. We recommend using the same ones we use to make almond milk.
- Bowl - It is always better to use a large bowl (affiliate link) to work the blender method without making a mess in the kitchen early in the morning.
Store this leftover kiwi juice in a BPA-free (affiliate link), or tightly sealed glass container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
You can freeze your kiwi fruit juice in an airtight container, but it doesn't stand up well to freezing for more than 3 months. It will never reach the same nutrient density as fresh juice, but you will still enjoy its health benefits.
