Important

If you have reactions to strawberries while eating them, then consult your doctor, preferably a naturopathic doctor, to see if you can juice strawberries.

If you have a sugar related illness or problem then do be careful. As great as strawberries are, they are extremely high in natural fruit sugars. When you compare the sugar (energy) content of strawberries to other fruits (except cranberries which are also high in fruit sugar) then you will see a really big and dramatic difference.

General

Strawberry juice can be a little on thick side and so you will need to dilute it with another juice or water.

If your juicer has more than 1 speed, you will want to try juicing on a slower speed.
