Fresh orange juice recipes are the best. There's nothing like it on the planet. Great for breakfast or a juicy snack.
By law in the USA, juices in cartons must be pasteurized (heated) and when this happens, vitamins and minerals are depleted.
It’s also been brought to light more recently that the juice contains flavor packets and sit in storage facilities for a long period of time. If you love orange juice, juice your own. It’s safer and has many more health benefits.
Do not juice the rind of oranges in your orange juice recipes. They contain indigestible oils that can irritate the stomach. Peel first. I prefer to cut the peel off as I think it’s quicker, but that’s just my preference.
I love taking fresh OJ juiced with a small knob of ginger and pouring mineral water over top of it in a glass. So refreshing! But if you want some more ideas...just look below.
½ lime (with rind)
Mineral water, optional
Peel the orange, and cut the lime. Core the peach. Juice together and pour into a glass. Add mineral water as desired and serve.
Peel the oranges and juice. Drink shortly after juicing, but orange is a juice that will keep well for a day if you need.
2 cored rounds of pineapple
Peel the oranges. Core and remove the skin from the pineapple, and set aside 2 1 inch “rounds” Juice together and serve.
3 pineapple spears
3 lettuce leaves
Core and skin the pineapple, set aside the spears. Peel the orange. Roll 3 lettuce leaves and insert them into the juicer alternating with the pineapple and orange, serve.
small knob of ginger
Peel the oranges, and core the apple. Juice as usual and serve.
