Peaches are a juicy summer fruit rich in vitamins A and C. Make juice from peaches as a way to add fruit to a healthy diet. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends that adults consume 1 1/2 to 2 cups of fruit or fruit juice a day. Children should get 1 ½ cups. Very young children need about a cup of fruit or fruit juice each day.

Step 1

Allow the peaches to ripen completely. Peaches in the supermarket may not be completely ripe, so you may need to wait a couple of days after bringing them home before juicing. The peaches should be firm and yellow, with no green areas.

Step 2

Wash peaches in cold water before juicing to remove any dirt or chemicals. Also, remove the stem if there is one.

Cut each peach in half with a paring knife and remove the pit. Remove any remaining pith, the stringy material that sometimes adheres to the peach pulp when the pit is removed. The skin of peaches is edible, so it is not essential to peel them. However, if you are using a blender, you might want to peel the peaches. Otherwise, your peach juice will have bits of the peel mixed in. Slice each peach into small pieces that will fit into your juicer or blender.

Start the blender or juicer and allow it to run for about a minute. The time will vary depending on the appliance you use, so check the manufacturer’s instructions.

Add water to thin out the juiced peaches, if necessary, because juiced peaches tend to be very thick. Simply add water to taste and run the blender or juicer a few extra seconds to mix thoroughly.
