Plum Juice Recipe with and without a Blender/Juicer

It’s absolutely freezing out here! I can’t feel my fingers, and all I want is something warm and comforting to ward off this chill. Instead of Hot Apple Cider, I decided to whip up a delightful concoction of Hot Plum Juice infused with the fiery kick of ginger and the cozy aroma of cinnamon.

This plum drink not only warms you up but also brings a burst of health benefits. Packed with antioxidants, plums support digestion and boost the immune system. They are a good source of vitamins and minerals. Ginger adds anti-inflammatory properties, while cinnamon helps regulate blood sugar.

You can use either red or green plums.

  • Red plums tend to be sweeter with a slightly tart undertone. They can add a vibrant color to your plum drink.
  • Green plums are often a bit more tart or sour than red ones. They might provide a refreshing and crisp flavor.

There are 3 ways to make Plum Juice drink: juicing, blending, and cooking. Juicing is the best option for making Plum Fruit Juice, but it might not work for very soft plums. The ripe or overripe plums will be easy to blend. If you choose less ripe plums, cooking plums with spices like cinnamon or ginger is a better method.

Here’s how to make Plum Juice with and without a blender/juicer. You can choose which option you want. Since I need hot juice in the cold season, I’ll choose to cook it.
