Step It Up A Notch Orange Juice

During the winter months, a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice to build up the immune system sounds delightful! Since oranges are currently in season, it is easy on the budget to buy a couple bags a week. Especially if you were to compare the cost of fresh squeezed orange juice at a restaurant. Besides all the nutrients, I can have a little Florida or California right here in my home!

I always have to step up the nutrient content. These four ingredients go nicely together without losing the flavor of the oranges.

DSCN9871Just in case you were wondering, I make this orange juice separate from my morning smoothies. The orange juice is a bonus later in the day or on weekends.

I grab a large handful of carrots when I juice for my husband and I. Which weighs about  3/4 of a pound. If you only want approximately two cups of juice, reduce the amount of carrots slightly.
