Skip the Motts – your Vitamix lets you create fresh, sweet apple juice at home! Its aircraft-grade stainless steel blades and 2+ horsepower motor demolish whole apples – skin, flesh, and all – into a nutritious nectar.
All those vitamins and minerals stay in while the solids get strained out, leaving you with crisp, refreshing juice bursting with sweetness.

What type of apples work best for making juice in the Vitamix?
Choose sweet apple varieties like Fuji, Honeycrisp, Gala and Red Delicious. Sweeter apples yield a better flavor. Tart Granny Smiths can also be used but may need honey or sugar. Avoid mealy apples.
Should I strain homemade apple juice from the Vitamix?
Yes, you’ll want to strain the apple juice. The Vitamix pulverizes the apples, releasing the juice. But straining removes the solids, giving you a clear, pulp-free juice. Use a fine mesh strainer or nut milk bag.
