How to Make Homemade Orange Juice at home with just one simple, fresh and healthy ingredient: Oranges!

There are so many things I have to say about this delicious and fresh orange juice, but one thing is for sure . . .

It is so easy to make that I don’t understand why we don’t always make it this way!

Granted, peeling so many oranges can be a bit of a pain. I brought in R to help with the peeling since the orange juice was really more for him than for me. As we worked, Cooper sat at the foot of the counter, praying an orange peel would drop. That was pretty much how our Saturday morning went.

It was so cold and gloomy outside, my morning needed a little brightness. Winter tundra, my friends; the tundra is here and it can leave at any time. It’s cold, dark, and forcing me to sleep non-stop.
That is really what we all need in our life, a little bit of make-believe sunshine in this winter tundra.
Sunshine in orange juice form… it’s literally happiness in a glass.

I’ve been juicing lately to recover after eating gluten a couple weeks back. It’s my foolproof way of consuming delicious vitamins and nutrients without eating ten pounds of vegetables.

I’ve concocted some delicious, nutrient packed juices that mask the taste of kale and have considered sharing them here.

Am I the only one who can’t find it in themselves to like kale? I try; I’ve tried so many times, but it’s just blah to me. It is so good for you though. Even putting it in a juice, 99.9% of the time I can taste it above everything else. That was the case, until I found a secret weapon to hide it: celery.
otal side rant: Back to this orange juice and how to make it at home.

It was only natural to use the juicer to make orange juice. Almost zero work, minus having to peel the skins off. It’s a small price to pay for this rich, perfectly naturally sweetened orange juice.

Throw them in the juicer and let it do the magic…

Sunshine in a Glass—Pure Magic.






Pair it with a weekend Breakfast of Champions meal like pancakes (or our family favorite, eggs with pan-seared potatoes) and you are 100% ready to tackle the rest of the day.

How to Make Homemade Orange Juice –

Personally, I’ve found juicing has done wonders for me, always getting my body back where it needs to be after accidentally consuming gluten or after a couple weeks of eating too many sweets. I feel less lethargic, more stable blood-sugar levels, and so on.

My chocolate loving spidey senses have been on high alert lately. Valentine’s Day is coming up and that means chocolate delicious treats are 100% on the horizon.

Delicious and juicy orange contains an impressive list of essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals, which are necessary for normal growth and development and general well-being.
Oranges are rich in a variety of nutrients. This fruit has a low caloric value, does not contain saturated fat or cholesterol, but is rich in fiber, pectin, which are extremely useful for overweight people. Pectin serves as a natural laxative and thus helps protect the mucous membrane of the colon by reducing the time of exposure to toxic substances, as well as by binding to carcinogens in the colon. Pectin also lowers blood cholesterol levels by reducing bile acid reabsorption in the colon.
Orange, like other citrus fruits, is an excellent source of vitamin C (it provides about 60 percent of the daily recommended dose). Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. Eating foods rich in vitamin C helps the body develop resistance to infectious agents, and also collects harmful, inflammatory free radicals from the blood.
Oranges can be worn anywhere without much hassle. Fresh oranges can be eaten anytime, anywhere. Simply wash them with tap water to remove any dust and pesticide residues, peel the skin and enjoy the fruit!

Peel a squash, grate it and squeeze the juice. Remove the thin white membrane from the meat, as well as the hairs and seeds. Oranges are usually eaten this way. Alternatively, you can cut the orange in half and remove the contents with a spoon.

Fresh orange juice is as popular as eating whole fruits. However, it is better to eat an orange than to drink juice to get the most out of antioxidants. The fiber content is also significantly reduced when squeezing the juice. If you still want juice, squeeze it yourself instead of buying ready-made juices, because they usually contain preservatives, artificial colors and a lot of sugar. Before squeezing, leave the fruit at room temperature, if you have previously stored it in the refrigerator.

The top of the peel, grated with a grater, is used in the preparation of many recipes, mostly because of the rich taste of the sebaceous glands.
