Homemade Fresh Cranberry Juice in 20 Minutes!

I love starting the day with a glass of homemade fresh cranberry juice because it’s such a healthy juice. They can help prevent urinary tract infections and some people even use it for type 2 diabetes, chronic fatigue, to prevent blood clots. Cranberries are loaded with antioxidants, vitamin C, and salicylic acid. You can see why a good homemade fresh cranberry juice is the way to go.

If you buy cranberry juice in the juice aisle of the grocery store, chances are what you’re buying is cranberry juice cocktail. What that basically means is that you are buying cranberry juice and extra stuff – generally high fructose corn syrup if you’re buying the leading brand.  I’m not a huge fan of starting each morning off with a hefty helping of high fructose corn syrup so, for me, fresh is the way to go.

While I can buy a jar of cranberry juice that isn’t sweetened, it’s so tart that even if I wanted to spend $8 a bottle, I wouldn’t. You can make this recipe in a large or small batch. Since I’m the only one drinking it, I make just enough for a few days.

This recipe is very easy and quick. I use real maple syrup from the trees in our back yard. If you don’t have an easy source of maple syrup, you can use honey or stevia to keep it Paleo. If you don’t mind the tartness, you can drink it without the sweetener. It isn’t super sweet this way, but it’s enough so it doesn’t make you pucker. Just store it in the refrigerator for easy access.

This is a really easy juice to make from scratch. If you want to enjoy it with breakfast, make it the night before so it can refrigerate overnight to get cold. Here are a few more easy Paleo recipes.

  1. I LOVE cranberry juice but never tried to make it myself before.. I m definitely going to try this recipe!
  2. Oh that looks so good!  I have never made juices at home before....but would love to start! So much healthier!

    Why didn't I think of this?!  I buy and freeze several bags of cranberries when they are on sale in the Fall, then make "cranberry sauce" throughout the year to use as jam.  I love cranberry juice but have never thought to make it.  I pinned this!  Thanks!
  4. Cranberries should be going on sale next month so might try this recipe. I do have some liquid stevia I've been adding to my tea but would be perfect for this. I don't like it too sweet either, especially in the morning.
  5. How cool! I would have never thought to make my own cranberry juice. Totally trying this
  6. Looks so good and refreshing. I just bought cranberries and will try this recipe tonight
  7. Love the idea of fresh cranberry juice. Do you use the actual berries after boiling them for anything?
  8. Just tried your recipe and excited to have my juice in the morning.  What do you do with the left over cranberry chunks? Trying not to waste :-)
  9. Steve Harris says:
    I just made a batch for my wife on Thanksgiving. This juice is fantastic! I used local honey for the sweetener and she loves it. Not only does it taste wonderful, it's very easy to make, and the house smells great too (BONUS!!). Thank you for posting this recipe.
  10. This is almost the same way you make cranberry sauce, just more water and less sweetener. The way I make my sauce is adding a cinnamon stick or two while it simmers (There is also a way to do it in the Instant Pot, but I haven't tried it yet). The reason I mention it is there are health benefits with cinnamon in controlling glucose and diabetes treatment, and also maple cinnamon cranberry juice sounds divine.
