You can freeze pomegranate juice for up to a year.

Pomegranate juice, which has higher antioxidant levels than red wine or blueberry juice, may stop or even reverse hardening of the arteries, according to the WebMD website. It can also be more expensive than apple or orange juice, and its strong and tart taste can make it hard to drink much of it at a time. As a result, you may find yourself with more pomegranate juice than you can drink immediately, but reluctant to pour such a healthful and relatively expensive drink down the drain. Instead, store your pomegranate juice in the refrigerator, freezer or pantry depending on whether it is already open and how soon you plan to consume it.


Step 1

Put any pomegranate juice you plan to drink within the next five days into the refrigerator in a sealed container.

Step 2

Pour the remaining pomegranate juice from any opened containers into freezer-safe glass or plastic containers. Leave at least 1/2 inch of room at the top of each container to allow the juice to expand.


Step 3

Put the lid on each of the freezer-safe containers and ensure an airtight fit.

Step 4

Place the sealed freezer-safe containers into your freezer and store them there for 8 to 12 months.

Step 5

Place any fully sealed containers of pomegranate juice that do not require refrigeration in a dark, cool part of your pantry that is not exposed to direct sunlight or excess moisture. You can keep these containers here for 12 to 18 months.
