About Orange Juice
Orange juice is a great juice made by extracting the juice from oranges and adding sugar to it. Orange Juice is one of the popular juices that is a widely consumed and versatile drink that can have many variations.
“Orange juice can be enjoyed by itself or incorporated into different recipes. Drinking fresh juice not only provides a delicious taste, but also ensures the full nutritional benefits of the fruit.

Orange juice has many uses – it can be made thicker without water if desired, or ice cubes can be added to make it thinner. Sugar or other sweeteners can also be added for taste, but it can be enjoyed without them for the full benefits of oranges.
Orange juice is a good source of vitamin C helps to build immunity, aids in skin glow and overall well-being. Orange juice is known for its refreshing taste and can be made with a lot of variations.
Different types of oranges to consider: Oranges are available in a variety of options such as blood oranges, tangerines, valencia oranges, clementines, and navel oranges. Packaged orange juice from the store loses its nutritional value due to lack of freshness and the addition of artificial colors and preservatives.
This beverage is ideal for satisfying your thirst. Making your own orange juice is superior and cannot be equated to pre-packaged drinks found in stores.

One way to extract juice without a mixer is by using a manual juicer. Simply cut an orange in half and squeeze out the juice. This is a widely used method.
Put the orange pulp into a mixer and remove the seeds. Then, blend the pulp with or without sugar for a few seconds. Strain the mixture and use a spoon to squeeze out all of the juice.
Step-by-Step Recipe for Orange Juice
Without using mixer
Start by selecting two ripe oranges. Rub them a few times to ensure that the juice is extracted effectively.
Cut each orange in half.
3. Use a manual juicer, preferably a steel one with sharp edges for efficient and effortless extraction of juice.
Place half of the orange on the juicer and begin pressing and rotating to extract the juice. If you do not have a manual juicer, simply halve the oranges, remove the seeds with a knife, and then squeeze the orange into a bowl.
Press firmly until all the juice has been squeezed out.
If you prefer your orange juice with pulp, you can mix some of the pulp collected here into the juice.
Remove the seeds and gather the juice at the bottom.
The fresh orange juice is prepared and available.
9. Begin by trimming the edges of the orange.
Cut down the middle.
Cut open in this manner and remove the seeds.
Remove the pulp from the oranges and place it in a blender. I used pulp from 2 oranges.
Add two teaspoons of sugar to the mixture, if desired. Omit this step if you prefer not to use sugar.
Blend the mixture in short bursts, being careful not to over-blend as it will become bitter. Then, strain the juice through a strainer.
Using a spoon, apply pressure to fully extract the juice.
Squeeze and extract all of the juice. Dispose of the leftover parts.

Serving & Storing Suggestion

Orange Juice is best when consumed fresh or within a day. However you can store it for 2 days in fridge in a clean container preferably glass bottle fitted with a lid.
