It is easy to make pomegranate juice at home without a juicer. You can drink it immediately or use it to make mixed juices.


  • 5 pomegranates


  1. Put one half in your hand, cut side down. Place your hand over a large mixing bowl.

  2. Using a wooden spoon, smack firmly on the top of the pomegranate repeatedly. Keep your fingers loose so that the pomegranate seeds can fall into the bowl.

  3. Keep smacking until all the seeds are removed. 

  4. Do the same for the other half.

  5. Transfer the arils into a blender. Blend just until the arils are crushed but the seeds are mostly intact. 10-15 seconds.

  6. Put a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and transfer the juice into the strainer. 

  7. Drain the juice by pressing the pulp with a sturdy spatula or back of a spoon.

  8. Share the juice into glasses and drink immediately.

  9.  You can freeze the leftovers in small containers for several months. 


  1. Wear gloves and an apron when making this recipe. Pomegranate stains are hard to remove.
  2. When you pulse the blender longer than 15 seconds, the white seeds are crushed too and they make the juice gritty. So first blend it for 10 seconds and decide whether to continue or not.
