by Young and RawIn a perfect world, we would all be able to take time out of our days to make ourselves a juice or smoothie, and then consume them straight after they are made. Although this would be great, it is not always an option when we have meetings to run too, children who need attention and the plethora of other things we have going on in our lives. Just because you cannot drink your smoothies or juices right away, does not mean you should not make them at all 🙂 Here is our guide to how long you can store a juice or a smoothie, while still keeping it nourishing for your body.Smoothies: Smoothies retain their fibre content, which helps to protect them from oxidative damage. This means that if you keep your smoothie in a tightly sealed glass jar, away from light and heat as much as possible, it will last for 24-48 hours. If you like, you can also freeze your smoothies, and then consume them as they defrost when you are ready to drink them. You can make your smoothie up to a week in advance if you freeze it in a tightly sealed container. Try to use glass, but make sure you get freezer safe glass or it will explode and make a big mess. You can find cases of Ball Jars on Amazon.com or go to your local health food store and see if they have jars for you.

Juices: Juices are a little more fickle and delicate than smoothies, because the fibre has been removed. This means that they are more susceptible to oxidative damage.

If you are using a centrifugal juicer, your juice will start to break down within about 15-30 minutes. If you cannot get to your juice within a 30 minute window, we would suggest that you freeze it and drink it as it defrosts. You will have some nutrient loss with the freezing, but it will be much less than you would have lost if you had left it at room temperature or in the fridge

If you are using a masticating juicer, the juice will last up to 48 hours in a tightly sealed glass container. This gives you quite a bit more time. If you are making a juice in a masticating juicer and want to consume it later, just store it as you would a smoothie, in a tightly sealed glass container away from light and heat, and you should be good to go for about 48 hours.

If you want to make juice ahead of time and freeze it, I would say do not do so for longer than about 3 days at a time. With juice, try to consume it as soon as you can 🙂
