How to make fruit juice with your Vegan Milker

Vegan Milker is a multifunctional tool which has many purposes, due to its apparent simplicity.

While we might have designed Vegan Milker as a tool to prepare plant milks in a quick and easy way, we’ve discovered how practical it is when it comes to preparing all kinds of healthy drinks. In this post, we’ll explain how to make top quality fruit juices with Vegan Milker’s filtre, saving on costs and energy.

Basic fruit juice recipe

General rule of thumb in order to make a good fruit juice with Vegan Milker is to use at least a really high-water content fruit, which from now on, we’ll refer as “base fruit”. Thanks to this “base fruit” we’ll get enough liquid to integrate a second, less juicy fruit afterwards. The juicing process goes on for a total of three minutes, and it doesn’t produce an excessive amount of pulp. However, as you know, we hate wasting food so we’ve sure come up with a few ways to make the most of this pulp.

Basic ingredients:

  • Base fruit: any kind of melon, oranges, grapes, pears or any other high-water content fruit.
  • Secondary fruits: strawberries, mango, pineapple, peaches, kiwifruits, apples, plums, figs, etc…  Do not use bananas or avocados in the secondary group, as their texture (and high fat content in the case of avocado) make the filtering step harder than usual. If you’d like to add them to your juice, do it at the end, after having removed the filtering attachment.

Instructions to make the fruit juice:

  1. Wash fruit with you don’t intend to peel with water and a squeeze of vinegar.
  2. Fill the filtre with the high-water content fruit until the point where it reaches the line on top, and blend with a hand blender until it’s completely liquid. This way, we’ll get the base juice, which we can add the remaining ingredients to.
  3. Add the secondary fruits and blend for an extra minute.
  4. Release the filtering attachment and, before pressing the pulp with the mortar, keep blending (this is done to facilitate the press, you can watch this trick in action on our video “Express filtering”).
  5. Lastly, press the pulp with the mortar to release the last droplets of juice.
  6. Juice will keep well in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 2-3 days, but it’s best to consume inmediately, so we can make the most of all the vitamins.
  7. Thanks to the emulsion which Vegan Milker makes, the remaining amount of pulp is minimum. The juice texture, however, tends to be rather thick, like a cross between a pressed juice and a smoothie.

You can find a section with ideas on how to use up the leftover pulps at the bottom of this post.

Sugar free fruit juice?

It is not necessary to add any sugar to our homemade juices, but you can use higher fructose fruits (such as melon, grapes or peaches) to make it naturally sweeter, which is more nutritious.

On the other hand, if you’re a fan of more bitter flavours, you can add a squeeze of lemon or lime to get an equally delicious, but less sweet drink.

Here are some recipes to make the most of every part of the fruit.

Recipe 1: melon strawberry juice.

This is a sweet juice with antioxidant and diuretic properties.

Ingredients for 250ml:

  • 2 slices of really ripe melon (set seeds aside)
  • 8 ripe strawberries.

Instructions:

  1. Wash strawberries with water and a drizzle of vinegar. There’s no need to cut them into smaller pieces, as they’re easy enough to blend.
  2. Put the seedless and skinless melon in the filtering attachment and blend for a minute.
  3. Add the strawberries and blend to mix throughoutly.
  4. Release the filter attachment and keep blending the pulp as shown in our video “express filtering” to aid the filtering process.
  5. Press the pulp with the mortar, leaning the filter diagonally so it’s easier to squeeze and set pulp aside to prepare other recipes (see last section of the post for recipes).
  6. Do not throw the melon seeds away, you can use them to prepare a different juice with your vegan milker, which then can be added to the juice to boost its nutritional benefits.

Recipe 2: tropical watermelon, pineapple mango juice.

This juice is delicious, and will provide you with lots of fibre and minerals such as magnesium and phosphorus, as well as vitamins A, B-group and C.

Ingredients to make 250 ml:

  • 2 slices of ripe watermelon, with seeds
  • 1 slice of pineapple, including fibrous core
  • Half a mango

Instructions:

  1. Peel and cut all fruit.
  2. Put the watermelon (base fruit in this case) in the filtering attachment and blend for a minute.
  3. Add pineapple and mango and blend again until fully mixed.
  4. Release the filter attachment and keep blending the pulp as shown in our video “express filtering” to aid the filtering process.
  5. Press the pulp with the mortar, leaning the filter diagonally so it’s easier to squeeze and set pulp aside to prepare other recipes (see last section of the post for recipes).

Recipe 3. Mango orange juice

Delicious vibrant juice with plenty of antioxidant properties, as well as lots of fibre and vitamins B, C and E.

Ingredients:

  • 2 oranges
  • Half a mango

Instructions:

  1. Peel the orange, putting special attention to remove all the white bits and seeds, which could make the juice bitter.
  2. Peel and cut the mango
  3. Put the orange (base fruit) inside the filtre and blend for a minute.
  4. Add the mango and blend until fully mixed.
  5. Release the filter attachment and keep blending the pulp as shown in our video “express filtering” to aid the filtering process.
  6. Press the pulp with the mortar, leaning the filter diagonally so it’s easier to squeeze and set pulp aside to prepare other recipes (see last section of the post for recipes).

What do we make with the remaining pulps?

Even if the leftover pulp is minimal, it’s not nice to throw them away. They’re really nutritious and can be added to many recipes to boost their nutritional content, for example yogurt, muesli or even as a topping for cheesecake. You can also try one of our favourite recipes which is to mix it with flour to make taco shells (see recipe for beetroot orange tacos)

Refreshing recipes:

Fruit juice is a really versatile item which can be used in many different ways.

  •  POPSICLES: You can freeze it to make popsicles, which kids (and adults alike!) will love.
  •  COCKTAILS: You can add some prosecco or any other wine/spirit to make a delicious cocktail (50:50 mixture)
  •  SMOOTHIES: You can make a smoothie by adding plant milk or yogurt.
  •  PROBIOTIC DRINK: You can make a delicious probiotic drink by using 50:50 juice and enzymatic water.
