Heavenly Juice

Alfredo brought home 4 bags of oranges at 10p a bag yesterday (we honestly don’t hang out for hours at the Reduced shelf, by the way. We just get lucky)

He said: “They had trays and trays of them, but I thought- “What are we going to do with all those oranges?”

(Honey- don’t you know me by now??)

What are we going to do with all those oranges?

Answer: This juice!











Amazing juice to begin the day with! Suggested ratio:

  • 2 oranges to 10 frozen raspberries, thawed under a warm tap. (The glass shown is double these quantities. This would be amazing with strawberries too)


  • Juice your oranges by hand with a regular old plastic citrus juicer.
  • Blend your juice with your raspberries in a blender.
  • Wait for 2 minutes so the seeds sink to the bottom of your juice, if you wish.

Note to self: Early mornings are great; you have time to juice a dozen oranges with a little 4 year old helper in Dora the Explorer pyjamas. “I’m really good at doing this, aren’t I Mum??…….and ..”This is a definite thumbs-up smoothie Mum!”

I wept a little for the pallets of 10p oranges that are now in compost, but apart from that, it was a doggone good way to start a rainy day!
