A guide to juiceable and  non-juiceable produce

Juicing is perfect for culinary creativity. It provides thousands of opportunities to blend fruit and vegetable combinations for delicious concoctions. While there are many varieties of produce to choose from for juicing, there are others that should not be juiced, primarily because they don’t extract juice, they make a huge mess or they can damage your juicer.

Whether juicing in a juice bar or juicing a home, use the guide above as a foundation for which fruits and vegetables to avoid, which to be cautious with and which ones are ideal for juicing. The best way to create blends combining juiceable produce with non-juiceable produce is to create smoothies. Extract the juice from “juiceables” using a juicer, and then add them to a blender with “non-juiceables” resulting in a delicious blend of all varieties of produce.

Keep in mind that citrus fruits are ideal for juicing, but they should be peeled first. Other fruits and vegetables that are good to go for juicing: cucumber, sweet potatoes and beets. Don’t juice rhubarb, figs, eggplant or pit fruits like cherries and peaches. With this information, the combinations for unique fruit and vegetable beverage creations are endless and make for fun experimenting in the juice bar or at home!
