If you like juicing this homemade kiwi juice recipe is for you. We started juicing years ago, and in the process have perfected a series of juices including this great kiwi and cucumber juice recipe.
A great juice has a lot of easily digestible nutrients and has to be hassle-free, rich in vitamins and minerals. It has to simply give you a smile in your face as you look into the day unfolding throw your window.
This kiwi juice recipe will be ready in less than 5 minutes with 4 ingredients and a juicer. Don’t worry if you don’t have a juicer. You can make it in a blender just adding an extra step, passing the blended produce through a cheese cloth.
How to Make Kiwi Juice
The great juice Formula: add something with enough water content, so you don’t have to juice everything in your refrigerator, something cheap like celery and cucumbers. Add something sweet and citric like apples or KIWIS and clementine. If you want an extra kick for an anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting superpower just throw in some ginger!
Wash, peel, and chop – Our Juicer instructions recommend chopping vegetables into pieces small enough to fit easily down the chute. They also recommend peeling all citrus fruits as they can be difficult for the machine to process, which inhibits them from being fully juiced and also add unwanted bitterness due to its pealing.
Juice! Turn the juicer on and pass all the ingredients through the juicer, using your tamper. We recommend mixing the ingredients as you run them down the chute. Some pieces of celery, cucumber, mixed with clementine, unpeeled kiwis, and ginger (optional). When all push together it helps to move things through. If you decide (as we do), to use the celery leaves, they may get stuck. This is where mixing everything together helps.

We thought it was an interesting piece of information to share!
- Before you get started, buy a high-quality juicer (see our Juicing for Health: the truth about juicing Post notes).
- We recommend a slow masticating juicer (like this one), which better preserves the nutrients.
- Try to buy organic produce whenever possible. If you can’t find organic produce, be sure to wash thoroughly and peel the skin when possible.
- Chop produce into small pieces that easily fit down your juicer chute. And don’t rush the juicing process by cramming too much produce down the chute at once, which can overwhelm the juicer and stress the motor / clog the machine.
- Enjoy juice fresh or within 24 hours for the best flavor/nutrient content (store leftovers well-sealed in the refrigerator).
- Compost the leftover pulp. Depending on the ingredients you use for your juice, you may be able to use it for things like crackers and bread.
