Tips

  • How long do unopened juice smoothies last? The precise answer to that question depends to a large extent on storage conditions - to maximize the shelf life of unopened juice smoothies, keep refrigerated at all times.
  • How long do unopened juice smoothies last in the fridge? Unopened juice smoothies will generally stay at best quality for about 1 week after the date on the package, assuming they have been continuously refrigerated.
  • To further extend the shelf life of juice smoothies, freeze them: to freeze juice smoothies, store in airtight container and leave at least 1/2 inch headspace at the top, as juice smoothies will expand when frozen.
  • How long do juice smoothies last in the freezer? Properly stored, they will maintain best quality for about 8 to 12 months, but will remain safe beyond that time.
  • The freezer time shown is for best quality only — juice smoothies that have been kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
  • How long do juice smoothies last after being frozen and thawed? Juice smoothies that have been defrosted in the fridge can be kept for an additional 3 to 5 days in the refrigerator before using; juice smoothies that were thawed in the microwave or in cold water should be used immediately.
  • How can you tell if opened juice smoothies are bad or spoiled? The best way is to smell and look at the juice smoothies: if the juice smoothies develop an off odor, flavor or appearance, or if mold appears, they should be discarded.
