In the United States, blueberries are most plentiful in the states of Maine and Michigan, and are at their peak flavor and nutrition during the summer months. Sweet, juicy, and occasionally a little tart, these tiny fruits are incredibly rich in antioxidants.

Often labeled a “super-food”, blueberries, when consumed regularly, can help to protect the body from the ill effects of free radicals. They can also reduce the risk of certain cancers and aid in limiting inflammation associated with asthma, arthritis, and various other health issues.

Blueberries are relatively easy to work with, as they don’t have to be chopped, peeled, or cored. However, when making blueberry juice recipes, it can be helpful to quickly pick through your container of fruit (if purchased from the store) to remove any under or overly ripe fruits, as they can be easy to miss. Like any fruit, make sure that you thoroughly rinse these tiny berries before juicing them.

While it is always advised to go organic when you can, this is especially true with blueberries. As there is no protective rind and the fruit is extremely small, blueberries grown traditionally tend to contain higher levels of toxins and pesticides than other traditionally grown fruits.

Here are some blueberry juicing recipes to get you started. You can alter the quantities or the ingredients based on your personal preferences.
