The 10 Best Fruits for Juicing:

As the majority of things in life, juicing is pretty much of a matter of personal preference. We all have our own "juicing must haves". And what works for one, doesn’t work for another.

So instead of trying to find out what’s best for you, let’s look at what should work for most people. It’s pretty simple:

Fruit is usually the easiest "ingredient" to juice. You’ll find it in almost any juice recipe. Legumes, on the other hand, can be used to thicken the texture, but not to make the juice.

Fruits usually add sweetness to the mix, but you can also use vegetables for that purpose.

However, I do have my personal fruit favorites. And I do believe that it’s a great idea to develop your own, personalized juice recipes.

And to help you with it, I’ve prepared the best list of fruits available.

Apple: Variety can be a nice twist in your juice. Invest in a few different kinds of apples. They’ll give you a good variety of tastes.


Apple juice is a favorite for people wanting to add fresh taste and some essential nutrients to their breakfast. Juice fresh apples at night, and in the morning have them freeze.

Then, overnight, the juice will separate from the white pulp and it will be really easy to separate the juice.

Another benefit of apple juice is that you can remove the seeds with a strainer. Mix part of the juice with water, the part you did not strain to get a better consistency if required.

Apples are incredibly good for you, and they help you in many different aspects of your well-being. Drinking a glass of this every day will ensure you have more energy.

The antioxidants contained in the apple juice help you to stay healthy, slim and active. Apple juice also has pectin fibers.

Studies have shown they help you to lose weight if you are overweight. Apples also contain a lot of vitamin C.

This will help you to fight any and all infections you might face throughout the day.

They also have a lot of vitamin A which your skin needs to maintain a healthy appearance.


They are not only great for treating colds and flu, you can also cut a whole orange into small pieces and freeze them. That way, when you are low on energy, you can just grab one of the pieces and suck on it.

Oranges are also a great source of Vitamin C which helps boost your immune system.

Vitamin C is also a great antioxidant, which can even protect you from cancer.

This is a really good fruit for your first time juicer, since oranges have less fiber than other fruits so it’s easier to drink.


Apples and Bananas.

These are the best fruits to start with when you are just beginning. They work well to give you the best tasting juice and help you feel good during the experience without the dread of a grinder spitting juice everywhere!


Grapes are great for juice. They offer a vibrant flavor to juice and it doesn’t take much to get the effort really flowing! They are also a favorite for those that think that juicing can’t be a fun experience.

Grapes offer a sweet flavor to juice but also can be blended with other fruits to create a very tasty juice. For those that tend to get bored when they juice, grapes are the best option for a little excitement!


They are simple, but effective! They do not offer as much of a sweet flavor like grapes do, but rather a slight tanginess.

They are best blended with other fruits for juicing, but you can enjoy them plain as well.


These can be blended with other fruits with ease or enjoyed on their own. They blend well with most fruits and offer a sweeter taste to juices.

Bananas offer even more benefits to juicing than just a smooth taste.

They are rich in antioxidants, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals as well! Simply cut them up and enjoy the benefits.


Pomegranate juice is said to protect the heart by lowering cholesterol levels and preventing plaque build-up on the arterial walls. It also promotes bone health by preventing the loss of calcium from bone tissue.

In addition, pomegranate juice in combination with a prescription drug used to treat heart disease, has been shown to have positive results in the treatment of high blood pressure.


Blueberries are wonderful fruits for your eyes.

While their antioxidants can protect you from age-related macular degeneration (ARMD) and cataracts by destroying free radicals and also because of lutein and zeaxanthin, evolutionarily-developed chemical compounds located in the macula and lens of the eyes, they are an exceptional source.

Blueberries are additionally a great source of vitamin K, E, an assortment of B vitamins, potassium, chlorophyll, fiber, and anti-inflammatory phytonutrients.


Pineapples are delicious when they are diced up and put into a tropical drink. Pineapples also make a great juice for anyone who is looking for an alternative to the traditional orange or grapefruit juices.

They are also good juice to drink after exercising. Pineapple contains tons of anti-inflammatory nutrients, and they are also very fibrous.

If your goal is to lose weight, pineapple juice can be very beneficial for your weight loss journey. Pineapple juice helps to digest the fat in your food easier and can also reduce your appetite.

Pineapple juice is also very good for your heart. Pineapple juice can reduce the stickiness of your blood and can reduce your blood pressure as well.

Pineapple juice also helps balance your electrolytes and improves your overall digestive health as well. Pineapple juice is also a great source of vitamin C and can help boost your immune system when you are feeling under the weather. It can also help prevent against illnesses and infections too.

The anti-inflammatory properties also come in handy if you are suffering from arthritis or gout. Pineapple juice can also help to reduce the inflammation and swelling in your joints as well.

So if you are looking for a healthy juice to drink every morning, make some pineapple juice and drink it in the morning.


Peaches are one of the most popular fruits used in making juices. Their skins are generally quite thick, orange to yellow/red in color, with an aromatic taste. When unpeeled, they can be quite large in size with a smooth, fleshy texture.

They are abundant in vitamins and antioxidants and also contain fiber and potassium.

Encourage your child to try to peel a peach and try eating the fruit. Praise any progress or for any willing attempts.

Then ask them if they want to taste the juice and make sure that all the pieces are first chewed soft.

As they try peaches from a juice bottle, you can model chewing for them. You can do the same with any other fruit.


Cranberries contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which has been proven in several studies to have anti-inflammatory effects.

Even further, it contains phytochemicals that reduce the risk of urinary and bladder infections. It even contains anti-oxidants called tannins, which fight cancer and heart disease.

While it isn't going to replace a proper medical diagnosis for any potential medical issues, it has been suggested by several health care professionals that you can replace your current OTC pain reliever with cranberry juice.


Both fruits are high in vitamin C and have fairly low sugar content. Lemons are a good source of potassium and limes are a great source of calcium! These are two very important minerals for the nervous system which is why they both help fight the symptoms of stress.

Lemons and limes also help with digestion because they have properties that are anti-microbial and digestive. Making juice out of both of these fruits can help improve your digestion and help your body to fight off digestive issues.

Lemon and lime juice can also help to improve your hydration and therefore can help speed your body towards healing. They are also a good source of electrolytes which help your cells to properly absorb water and stay hydrated.


Mangoes are incredibly juicy fruits that include a wealth of vitamins, minerals, fibers, and antioxidants.

They have low calories and come packaged with loads of vitamins that are great for the body in general.

Mangoes are particularly powerful when it comes to fighting cancer. This super fruit has properties that fight against cancer cell growth and increases immune system activity.

This really is a great nutritional food choice, and allows you to enjoy lots of vitamins without the calories.


When it comes to choosing the best fruits to juice, it's important to keep in mind that not all fruits are created equal.

No single fruit is the supreme elixir of high nutrient content.

Some fruits can even be high in sugar.

Just like people, every fruit has their own personality and the right fruit for you will depend on your goals and your taste buds.

To keep your juicing experience balanced, you need to mix and match different fruits, juicing some and eating others on a daily basis.

This way you'll guarantee that you get all the essential nutrients as well as the natural fiber that has a cleansing effect on your digestive system.

In the end, we can all raise a glass of fresh, cold, and delicious fruit juice to good health and a long, happy, and healthy life!
