INGREDIENTS

  • 6 orangeschoose a juicy variety like Valencia, Navel, Kennow

ALL OTHER INGREDIENTS ARE OPTIONAL, ADD AFTER TASTING.

  • ½-1 cup waterif/as needed to dilute fibers
  • 1-2 tablespoon lemon juice if/as needed for sweet oranges
  • 1-2 tablespoon sugar or honeyif/as needed for tart oranges.
  • 1 pinch salthelps cut down tartness
  • 1 pinch black pepperfreshly crushed

Method

  • Wash and peel oranges. Make sure to remove as much white part as possible.
  • Cut the four sides of the oranges, leaving the center intact. Remove any seeds that are still embedded in the sides.
  • Transfer the orange sides to the blender, set aside.
  • Squeeze the juice from the centre too by squeezing it between the palms. Or alternatively, transfer all centre to a muslin cloth. Lift all four corner of the cloth into make bag. Squeeze the bag to remove the juice. Transfer this juice to the blender.
  • Now blend the juice for 2-3 minutes with interval until smooth. If your oranges are fibrous, you might need to add water to keep the fruit moving. (I didn't)

TASTE TEST

  • Do a taste test. If the juice is too fibrous, strain it. (I didn't.)
  • If you diluted juice too much by adding water while blending, adjust the taste by adding optional ingredients. ( I added only salt and pepper.)
  • Pour into a glass. Add a straw and serve chilled.
