Steps to Make Peach Juice
Making peach juice is easy, follow these steps and you can make your own peach juice this summer instead of buying store-bought peach juice. There are two paths to this elixir: one through a juicer and the other through a blender.
Using a Juicer:
- Gather your ingredients: You'll need fresh, ripe peaches, a juicer, and a knife.
- Prepare the peaches: Wash, peel, and remove the pits from the peaches. Cut them into smaller pieces.
- Juice the peaches: Start the juicer and feed the peach pieces into it. Watch as it extracts the juice, leaving the pulp and skins behind.
- Enjoy: Pour the peach juice into a glass, add ice if desired, and savor the refreshing taste of summer.
Using a Blender:
- Gather your ingredients: You'll need fresh, ripe peaches, a blender, and a knife.
- Prepare the peaches: Wash, peel, and pit the peaches. Slice them into pieces.
- Blend the peaches: Place the peach slices into the blender and let it blend until smooth.
- Serve: Pour the blended juice into a glass, refrigerate for a colder option, and enjoy the result of your effort.
So, making peach juice, juicer Vs. blender: which one is best for you? Well, for me, I prefer using a juicer, especially a cold press juicer, like the Ventray 809 Slow Press Masticating Juicer I currently have, because it produces tastier and more nutritious juice compared to my previous Breville Juice Fountain Centrifugal Juicer.
Cold press juicers and centrifugal juicers are the two main types of juicers on the market. If you find yourself uncertain about these two juicer types, you might find the article Cold Press Juicer Vs. Centrifugal Juicer: Which One Is Right for You? helpful in making your decision.
