If you’re playing this open-water survival game, you need to make sure you get a Raft Juicer. Why? Because it greatly quenches your thirst, it gives you an anti-thirst bonus, and it’s a fun way to display your fruit collection. If you manage to get your hands on the Spicy Pineberry or Redbeet Shot recipes, you can even get a swimming speed bonus or health bonus respectively.
The basics are simple: place up to four types of fruit on the Raft Juicer table, and press ‘start cooking’ to create a drink. When the drink is done (this takes a few seconds), equip a Drinking Glass and fill it up. Of course, make sure the Juicer has a battery, but beware: don’t use random fruit. As tempting as it can be to try your own Juicer recipes, you can only get a ‘good’ drink by following a recipe. Everything else just turns into ‘leftovers’, which doesn’t quench your thirst nearly as much – a vital difference in this survival game. You can find most of the Juicer recipes in loot boxes, but the Spicy Pineberry and Redbeet Shot are bought from the Trading Post using Raft Trash Cubes.
Raft Juicer recipes
Before we get into how to craft a Juicer in the first place, let’s start with all the recipes for smoothies you can make. Good news: you don’t actually need a recipe to craft the drinks. Although it’s handy to stick the recipes on the wall, you can also use this Juicer recipe list to bypass the process of finding and buying them yourself.
- Coconut Beat: 3 Coconuts, 1 Raw Beet
- Simple Smoothie: 1 Mango, 1 Pineapple, 2 Coconut
- Mangonana: 1 Mango, 2 Bananas, 1 Bucket of Milk
- Silver Smoothie: 1 Banana, 1 Mango, 1 Bucket of Milk, 1 Silver Algae
- Strawberry Colada: 1 Pineapple, 1 Strawberry, 2 Coconut
- Red Melon: 1 Red Berries, 1 Strawberry, 1 Watermelon, 1 Coconut
- Redbeet Shot: 2 Raw Beet, 1 Coconut, 1 Turmeric
- Spicy Pineberry: 1 Pineapple, 2 Strawberry, 1 Chili
How to craft a Raft Juicer
Unlike the Raft Recycler, the Juicer crafting recipe doesn’t require a blueprint. All you need to do is learn the materials at the Research Table. Here’s the full Juicer crafting recipe:
- Planks x6
- Plastic x6
- Bolt x1
- Vine Goo x4
- Circuit Board x1
Besides the crafting materials, there are two more items you need: a battery to charge the Juicer, and a Drinking Glass. It costs one piece of Glass to make four Drinking Glasses (Glass, in turn, is made from Sand in the Smelter).
And that’s all there is to know about the Raft Juicer station. Enjoy your smoothies, and check out our full Raft Utopia walkthrough to learn how to get through the final section of the game, or read up on our Raft Temperance code guide if you can’t figure out how to get to Utopia.
