Easy And Quick Fresh Orange And Pineapple Juice
One of the reasons I like making juices at home is because it is super easy and quick. This orange and pineapple juice is made from only 2 ingredients you can get from any grocery store. Just wash, peel, and make the fruit in pieces to fit the juicer opening and you are done. It usually takes me 5 minutes to make juice. My family loves the taste of fresh juice.
Clean Juicing Without Additives
Nowadays, it is hard to find juice without having extra not so healthy ingredients in it. Some have additives to boost taste such as added sugar. Some have preservatives to keep the juice fresh. And the list goes on and on. With juicing at home, you are sure that you drink what you put in the juice and nothing else. You don’t have to read the ingredient list on a what seems to be a healthy juice just to find out that it has high fructose syrup as ingredient number 2.
To Peel Or Not To Peel The Orange
I like peeling the orange because the juice tastes smoother. The peel of the orange adds an extra bulkiness to the juice that doesn’t taste great to me. I know there are many nutrients in the peel of the orange, but I just don’t like the taste. Instead, I grind the orange peel once dried and use it in baking recipes. That is a much better and tastier way for me to enjoy the orange peel nutrients.
Cost Of Making Juice
It is true that you get a smaller yield of juice based on the amount of fruit you put in the juicer. Some people think that is a waste of money. However, in my local grocery store, a 10 pound bag of carrots is almost the cost of 1 pound. A 10-pound bag of oranges is also very affordable in the neighborhood of $5. I use juicing as an alternative to making sure my kids get nutrients every day. Sometimes you get tired of eating oranges every day, so by diversifying with all sorts of juices, consuming oranges doesn’t get old. In addition, if you don’t spend the $$ on the sugary store juices on the shelves, you are saving the $$ for buying real ingredients like produce.
Equipment For Fresh Orange And Pineapple Juice
It is true that for this recipe, you will need a juicer. However, I grantee you that you won’t regret investing money into a juicer. It has been one of my best kitchen equipment investments along with the dehydrator. Juicing provides my family with instant vitamins and mineral boost with a very low-calorie count. As my little girl says it well – juices have sugar but it is the “good” sugar.
