Juice of Many Oranges

A couple of weeks ago, we purchased a couple of boxes of navel oranges.

 One of our friends in our homeschool group offered to pick them up for us. We were able to purchase #1's or #2's ("seconds"). I purchased one of each. There wasn't much of a difference in the quality of the oranges, only the price. 
The girls and I decided it would be nice to have an abundance of freshly squeezed orange juice in the refrigerator. We have used many juicers here lately but the one in the picture is by far the best and easiest one to use. We were able to put a whole gallon of juice in the frig to enjoy!
We are hoping with all of that delicious Vitamin C, we will keep our immune systems healthy enough to fight off any nasty bugs we might come in contact with.


  1. Your juice looks really tasty.:)I have been consuming Emergen C.It seems to be making me feel better.~Nikki

  2. We LOVE our Lalane juicer! We juice fresh apples, oranges and either pineapple or cantelope in the morning depending on what is in season. Then we add it to the blender with a banana, greek yogurt and some bee pollen. Great stuff! For lunch we have started making Mean Greens from recipes which includes kale, celery, cucumber, granny smith apples, parsley, lemon and ginger root. It is amazing stuff. Got any favorite recipes?

  3. Hi Nikki, I have heard the Emergen C works. We are really enjoying our juice!

  4. Hi Sharon, we juice watermelons in the summer and make popsicles! They are delicious!

  5. We posted about oranges the same day!!! Great minds think alike, right? :) They are so delicious.

  6. Yum, this looks wonderful! And it truly is the most beneficial orange juice you could give your family- freshly squeezed, unpasteurized and fresh. Can't buy that in the store! I'm so glad to have you joining us for the 31 Days of Juicing starting May 1st. Be sure to come back and comment throughout the month the things you're learning!
