How to Preserve Your Juices and Smoothies to Turn them into Elixirs of Life
Did we mention… without preservatives???
If healthy living is your mantra, then juices and smoothies are definitely your elixirs of life. They pack a nutritious punch and are deliciously irresistible. But, store-bought juices or smoothies don’t count because they are generally loaded with artificial preservatives. And the only downside of home-made fresh juices or smoothies is that they don’t stay fresh for long and require immediate consumption.
So what do you do? Well, here are some zero-preservative ways to keep the freshness of your juices and smoothies intact for longer:
Load it up with Lemon
Lemon juice is one of the simplest and natural ways to keep the freshness of your juices intact whiles boosting the flavor of most juices and smoothies. Add enough so that you can taste it among other flavors. The acids in the lemon juice slow down the oxidation to retain the fresh natural flavor. To top it all, lemon juice has a lot of added health benefits and is packed with vitamin C.
Refine it with Rosemary
Rosemary extract is another powerful natural preservative. Derived from rosemary leaves, the antimicrobial composition of this ingredient has effective acids which aid preservation. Try adding a dash of this wonder ingredient to your juice or smoothie next time and voila, you will be able to have your drink last longer.
Spare no Space
Another great option is to simply fill the container up to the brim and leave no space for air. But in case you don’t have enough to fill completely, just push a plastic wrap down in a way that it touches the surface of your smoothie. This way there will be no air above the surface of your juice or smoothie.
