It is always best to drink your juice as soon as you juice those veggies and fruits. But as any juicing momma can tell you, there are just days when you can’t be at home and you’ll need to take juice along with you in order to stay on schedule.
You can juice ahead up to 48 hours, and drink juice that is still good, just know that as soon as you juice, the nutrients will begin diminishing. Be sure to juice as close to when you’ll be drinking as possible.
Here are a few tips to guide you:
- Store juice in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours
- In an airtight container, such as a Mason jar
- Fill to the top and seal tightly. If I don’t have enough juice to fill the jar, I top it off with water
- If you are out and about, store your juice in a cooler, with a freezer pack
- Don’t leave your juice in the car, subject to temperature extremes
- Freezing is less desirable, but if you must freeze your juice, do so immediately after juicing. Thaw in the fridge before drinking.
- Drink your frozen juices within 10 days.
