Homemade Orange Refresher
This recipe is based on Orange juice and you are very welcome to use a carton of shop bought orange juice, but bear in mind there will be very little nutrition left in the orange juice. And orange juice in cartons has usually been stored for a very long time. You may find this post interesting to read on the Secret Ingredient not in your orange juice carton. If you use a carton of orange juice, this drink will be extremely quick to make. However, as I am all about promoting good health, I obviously recommend that you make your own orange juice.
You might be there for a fairly long time using your manual citrus Squeezer for this amount of orange juice, so I’d recommend you get hold of a cheap electric citrus juicer. It will only take a couple of minute to make enough orange juice for this recipe and they are very quick to clean afterwards and don’t take up too much room in your kitchen.
There is actually another option if you don’t have a citrus juicer. You can just blend your oranges straight in the blender. I tried this option first and did use my Vitamix, so I can’t guarantee how smooth your drink will be if you don’t use a high powered blender. If you are using a standard blender, try chopping your oranges small and blending them first before adding the other ingredients. I still enjoyed the taste of this version but it actually took me longer to peel my oranges and remove all the pith than it did to juice the same number of oranges.
You can sweeten this drink with any healthy sweetener you like. I added date syrup as it’s quite neutral tasting. You can easily make your own date syrup too. I also tried this recipe with maple syrup but didn’t like the taste. I thought it overpowered the oranges. If you’re not vegan, you might want to try honey.
