How to prepare blueberrie juice?

Start off by rinsing the berries in a metal strainer with enough cold water to remove pesticide residue, soil dirt, bugs or other insects, and other kinds of debris.

Make sure that you shake the strainer while rinsing the berries.

The main event is, of course, the juicing itself and the star is your juicer machine. Turn it on and begin adding the blueberries into the juicer.

After juicing the blueberries, you can add a squeeze of lime, as it brings out the flavor of the berries and makes the drink even more refreshing.
