“Orange” Juice

orange juice 4I realized that I’ve only ever posted one juice recipe and figured it was time to put up another one. I have really slowed my roll on juicing but decided to bust my juicer out so the kids could have some fresh juice with breakfast.

I have to admit, juicing is really a serious hassle. But if you’ve got the time, it’s totally worth the result, which is crisp, fresh tasting juice! Now, I call this “orange” juice because of the color. There are oranges in it, but it’s not just plain ole’ orange juice. This is a great recipe for a virgin juicer who’s not willing to jump into the green juice pool just yet, or for picky kids.

“Orange” Juice (yields approximately 3 cups)

  • 5 small green apples, core removed (2 large red delicious make a great substitute)
  • 2 large oranges, peel removed
  • 1 large carrot

Turn your juice extractor on and add ingredients in the order listed. Stir and pour over ice.

I tried to get an action shot. It was difficult.

Yes the color looks a bit off now, but wait!

Check out that gorgeous ORANGE color!

I just wanted to mention that if you have the time, I highly recommend trying the aforementioned plain ole’ orange juice. It’s so much better in a juice extractor than in a traditional citrus juicer. Frothy and almost creamy. Very time consuming to cut off all the peels but if you’re hankering for some O.J. and have the time, give it a try.
