Notes
If you don’t have a citrus juicer or just simply do not want to make orange juice, you can slice the peels off of the orange (trying your best to remove all of the white pith as you can), slice it, remove any seeds it may have, and then blend the oranges in a high speed blender until a smooth mixture forms.
Oranges are the most popular Mediterranean fruit, which is rich in vitamins C, B and A, contains potassium and calcium. Exactly high content of vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, and this fruit has great benefits for the body.
Orange is full of vitamin C, which helps boost immunity, which is especially important during the winter when we are more susceptible to colds and viruses.
In addition, the high level of calcium in this fruit maintains and protects the health of bones and teeth.
Recent studies have shown that magnesium in oranges lowers blood pressure.
However, it is not recommended to squeeze orange juice, but to consume whole fruits.
The high concentration of hesperidin, a compound abundant in citrus fruits, lowers bad cholesterol.
Oranges themselves do not contain as much hesperidin anywhere, so it would be a good idea to use peel whenever possible.
The antioxidant properties of oranges protect the skin from free radicals. For a good complexion, it is recommended to drink a glass of orange juice daily.
The folic acid and folate found in oranges maintain brain development and keep vital organs in good shape.
Consumption of oranges is especially recommended for pregnant women because they have a positive effect on fetal development.
If you have ever made cookies with chocolate chips or a birthday cake, the recipe probably also contained vanilla extract. Normally, vanilla extract is used in very small quantities, in principle to give flavor and aroma to the product. Depending on what you prepare, it’s a subtle vanilla flavor you should not miss.
When you buy this ingredient, you can see on the product label that it contains vanilla extract or essence. The latter is said to be an aroma that mimics the taste of vanilla. The extract is normally much more expensive, which is why you are probably wondering what the difference is between the two.
