Noni is an evergreen shrub native to the tropical regions of Southeast Asia and Polynesia. Its fruit is yellow-green and mango-sized. Noni fruit has a bitter taste and is most commonly juiced and marketed as a general health tonic with some manufacturers making unsubstantiated health claims about it. However, noni is high in antioxidants, fiber and potassium, making it a healthy addition to your diet. You can prepare noni juice and consume it raw.

Juicing

Step 1

Peel the skin of the six noni fruits with a knife. Cut into small chunks and place them in a bowl. This will be enough to make 8 oz. of juice.

Step 2

Add the chunks of noni to the chute of the cold-press juicer. Place a cup under the spout of the juicer to collect the juice as it flows out. Cold-press juicers don't use heat to extract juice, which keeps the nutrient profile of the juice intact.

Step 3

Squeeze the juice of one lemon into your serving of noni juice. This will help conceal the noni juice's natural bitter flavor. Drink immediately.

Raw

Step 1

Peel the skin of the noni fruit with a knife. Noni is ripe when the skin is bright green and prickly.

Step 2

Add a 1/3 of noni fruit to a serving of yogurt or oatmeal, for example, to eat for breakfast.

Step 3

Stir fry 1/2 cup of chopped noni with onions, spinach, tomatoes and coconut. Pour the stir fry over rice.

Step 4

Add 1/3 cup of noni chunks to a protein shake and blend on high for 30 seconds.
