In order to lose and maintain an optimal weight, it’s important that the methods you use have well-balanced nutritional properties. In addition, it’s also worth trying to implement mechanisms that are simple, effective and don’t involve excessive spending. Health is all about quality, not quantity.

In that regard, today we’ll tell you what we know about losing weight by adding red juices to your diet. Most of these are both healthy and inexpensive.

Types of Red Fruit

Fruits of a red hue contain high amounts of vitamins and minerals. Furthermore, these can help you in different ways, one of them is they maintain the beauty of your skin and promote weight loss.

Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, watermelons, grapes, and pomegranates are just some of the red fruits group. Most of them are sources of vitamin C, beta-carotene, potassium, calcium, and iron, among other nutrients.

These are the vitamins and minerals that offer you many skin benefits and cleanse your entire body. In addition, they’re diuretic and laxative. These properties promote cleansing.

Types of Red Juice

When preparing mixed fruit juices, you can enhance the properties of these fruits. This way, you’ll get the vitamins and minerals from all of the fruits included in the drink.

In addition, because of the high water content of a red juice, you get more liquids. Therefore, this helps improve the diuretic function of the juice.

Red Juice: Alkalization

Red fruit-based juices allow you to obtain a large number of nutrients, antioxidants, and alkalizing elements. This is why they’re ideal for losing weight while improving your health.

The importance of alkalization is due to the fact that it helps your body counteract the acidic nature produced by various factors. This may be due to inadequate nutrition, lack of physical activity, pollution, and all of the harmful habits of sedentary life.

Furthermore, red juices help burn abdominal fat. Plus, their natural sugar content helps you consume less refined sugar, and this helps prevent weight gain.

Below, we’ll describe the red fruits that you can use to prepare red juice. Take advantage of all of their benefits and flavor!

How to Prepare Red Juice

It’s not necessary to have a recipe. All you need is red fruits and blend them depending on their availability and, of course, your taste.

Among the fruits that you can use and mix are the following:

Red Grapes

Grapes have a high content of resveratrol, an important antioxidant. This is mostly in the skin and the seeds of grapes.

Resveratrol is also good for the health of your skin. In fact, some cosmetics even include it in their formulas.


Pomegranates are fruit with a high content of antioxidants. They’re a little bigger than an apple and available for harvest in the fall and winter.


This fruit is particularly refreshing because it contains a lot of liquid – which makes it ideal for drinks.

Much of the value of watermelon lies in the fact that it improves your body’s ability to eliminate and regulate the amount of liquid stored. This is due, among other things, to its high potassium content. Thus, it’s great for people who tend to retain fluids.

Red Berries

The range of these fruits is exquisite in terms of flavor. As if that wasn’t enough, they’re also a great source of antioxidants.

Also, when making juices with these fruits, you’ll get a creamier texture.

Red Apples

Three whole apples and a half.

In addition to their contribution of natural sugar, apples also contain plenty of liquid, and that’s good for losing weight.

Most apples are very healthy but opt for the red hue and when you prepare the red juice. Furthermore, make sure to include the peel, as it’s high fiber content is a body cleanser.

How to Make Fruit Juices

  • Mix and match various red fruits, depending on what’s available.
  • Ideally, opt for seasonal, locally grown red fruits.
  • Chop and blend the fruit with an adequate amount of water to your taste.

Additional Recommendations

The most important recommendation we can give you when preparing red juice is that you shouldn’t add extra sugar. Fruits already have plenty of natural sugar. If you like sweeter drinks, opt for riper red fruits. Also, you may cheat a little and add a ripe banana to your blend in order to make it sweeter.

Furthermore, make sure to add the skin and seeds of the fruits (after washing them properly). The peel contains most of a fruit’s properties, as well as the seeds.

Also, to optimize your absorption of the vitamins and minerals contained in the fruits, add a little bit of extra virgin olive oil, or coconut oil, or flax oil to the red juice.

Finally, remember that single ingredients don’t do miracles nor work on their own. For this reason, you must maintain a healthy, balanced diet overall and remain active.
