It's best to drink your juice right after making it, but what if you want to prep for a day or two ahead? Juice can be safely stored in the fridge for 24-72 hours, but there are a few things to keep note of if you want to maximize nutrition and taste!
Just like an apple that’s exposed to air turns brown, juice that’s exposed to air also becomes oxidized and loses nutrients over time the longer it sits for. This is especially relevant for juice seeing as there's no natural cellular structure of the fruit or vegetable to help keep those nutrients intact. The best solution to prevent nutrient loss and oxidation is to use an airtight, glass containers.
Long Term Storage
Storing for longer than 72 hours? Longer term storage works best in the freezer, ready to be thawed in the fridge to drink shortly after.
Another quick hack is adding a slice of citrus into your juice to help boost vitamin C levels and reduce nutrient loss.
