How to make kiwi juice?
Wash kiwi, then optionally peel kiwi, and chop – our Juicer instructions recommend chopping vegetables into pieces small enough to fit easily down the chute.
Tip: did you know that kiwi fruit skin is edible? That's why you don't need to peel it. I recommend cutting off the button as it is tough and challenging for your juicer.
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 adds unwanted bitterness due to their 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.
Put together some pieces of celery, cucumber mixed with clementine, unpeeled kiwis, and ginger (optional). When you push all mixed together, it helps to move things through.
If you decide (as we do) to use the celery leaves, they may get stuck. That's why pushing all ingredients together helps.
Serve and enjoy your fresh kiwi juice. Feel free to add ice cubs or sparkling water if you want to add some fizzy notes.
Get an excellent Cold-Pressed juicer; it will be one of the best investments you have made in the year! Trust me! Make sure you check the juicer's instructions before starting, as many juicers have different working mechanisms.
If you don't have a juicer, you can also make juices, following these simple tips on juicing without a juicer plus three delicious recipes.
This juice can be made without a juicer. Simple blend the peeled produce in a high-speed blender and if you want to consume the kiwi pulp as well as celery and other fruits, go ahead without straining. Otherwise, pass the kiwi juice throw a fine mesh strainer, and serve.
If you have leftover kiwi juice, store it in a glass container and keep it in the fridge for up to three days.
As a rule of thumb, you should try to consume juices high in vitamin C as soon as you juice them, as this wonderful vitamin and potent antioxidant loses its properties minutes after their pulp is exposed to oxygen.
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 other sweet fruits and have some tartness like apples or KIWIS and clementine. If you want an extra kick for anti-inflammatory properties and an immune-boosting superpower, throw in some ginger!
Use juicing smartly!

How much kiwi juice should you drink?
Eating one to three kiwis per day is enough for the majority of people to get the boost of nutrients from kiwi fruit.
This homemade kiwi juice uses two kiwi fruits suitable for two servings. So in one glass of kiwifruit juice, you are consuming one kiwi fruit.
Regardless of all the fresh kiwi juice benefits, it is essential to know that many people have reported being allergic to kiwi fruit.
Symptoms can range in severity from very mild to more severe. Therefore, make sure you are not allergic to Kiwifruit before consuming it.
I love this benefit of kiwi! Di you know that eating 1–2 medium kiwis before bed may help you fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Kiwis are rich in serotonin and antioxidants, both of which may improve sleep quality when eaten before bed.
When I am feeling a little restless at night, I like having kiwis as a light dinner dessert.
Can you eat kiwi skin? Yes, you can eat kiwi skin as it is not toxic. It can only be eaten when the fruit is ripe and sweet, barely sour. If there are tiny black seeds on the inside (see picture), simply cut them out as they can taste bitter.
Some people experience some sensation in their lips, sort of an allergy, so try little by little, if you are planning on eating the whole fruit.
We thought it was an interesting piece of information to share!
How to choose kiwi
Choose kiwi fruit that has vibrant skin. If the kiwi is too hard to the touch, it might not have ripped enough; it is better to wait a couple of days until the fruit is slightly soft; that way, you can be sure that it will be sweet and not too acid.
Kiwi fruit juice tastes better when the fruit has fully ripened as it would be much sweeter, although for juicing, you don't need to wait for that much, especially if you are using other fruits like the suggested clementine.
- 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. Try not to rush the process cramming too much produce down the chute in one go. That 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.
