I’ve been making fresh citrus juice for my husband lately and I must say, it tastes SOOOO much better than the stuff you buy in stores!
In fact, I drank some fresh juice, and then drank some bottled orange juice and I was like, “YUCK!” They paled by comparison!
Now, during our raw food days in the past, we used to make fresh squeezed orange juice ALL the time.
But now I make a citrus juice that I “think” Sunny Delight was supposed to be based on… not sure.
Either way, this stuff is the BOMB! I call it, “Sunshine Juice”.
It’s so yummy and is a perfect balance of flavors: sweet, tart and that hint of bitterness from the (pink) grapefruit.
I think next time I’d like try adding some lime to the mix.
Here’s what I used:
1 pink grapefruit
2 mandarin oranges (Cuties)
Slice each and juice with citrus juicer. I use an electric citrus juicer where all you do is press the fruit down on the juicer that is in it’s bowl and it spins and juices. You can use a manual one, but it will take a little longer.
Pour into a glass and enjoy right away as to not lose nutrients!
NOTE: You will have some light pulp and seeds and you can use a strainer bag to remove it, but I personally leave mine in!
