  1. Yes, the peels of fruits and vegetables may be eaten and juiced. The bracha for the peels of fruits is Ha’eitz, and the bracha for the peels of vegetables is Ha’adama.

    The correct bracha for fruit juice, whether it is pure juice or whether it is mixed together with juiced vegetables, is Shehakol, unless the fruit juice is grape juice. In that case the bracha would that for grape juice, Hagefen.
