While you probably know the benefits of juicing, do you know how powerful juicing oranges is for your health?
Before I tell you the benefits, let me share my favorite orange juicing recipe:
The Best Orange Juice Recipe:
- 3 Oranges
- 1 pint of strawberries
- 2 carrots
- 3 apples
After all the produce is washed well and the oranges are peeled, cut into pieces that can fit into your juicer. Juice your oranges first, then strawberries, carrots and last will be your apples.
Pour into a glass and enjoy. If you prefer juice that is cold, make sure you chill your fruit in the refrigerator before juicing.
If you do not have time to wash your juicer right away, rinse everything and soak all the pieces in hot soapy water. This will make clean up super easy later on.
