Sweet Orange Juice Recipe

Description

This simple juice recipe tastes delicious and best of all it it has many health benefits, especially for your digestive system.

Carrots help eliminate “crazy critters” or bad bacteria in the intestines that cause poor assimilation of nutrients. Carrots also help with indigestion and can stimulate the elimination of your bowels when feeling boated.

Ginger is also great for the digestive system. It is regarded as an excellent carminative (a substance that promotes the elimination of intestinal gas) and intestinal spasmolytic (a substance that relaxes and soothes the intestinal
tract).

 

Happy Juicing!

Taste

YUM! It is so easy to drink, sweet and smooth with a little spicy aftertaste from the ginger.

Ingredients

  • 5 carrots (500g)
  • 3 oranges
  • 1 ginger piece, 2cm

Time:  5 mins
Qty: 600 ml
Serves: 2

Preparation

Carrots

  • Cut carrots once lengthwise to release the core
  • Juice with skin on
  • Note: If larger carrots are used cut lengthwise again, into quarters
  • REVO830: no need to cut if they fit in the carrot chute
  • AUTO10: Cut into 2 or 3 pieces across the carrot to fit in the hopper

Oranges

  • Thinly cut off the orange skin leaving as much white pith as possible
  • Juice whole or cut in half if too big to fit into the wide chute

Ginger

  • Wash and dry
  • Cut into thin pieces the size of your thumbnail leaving the skin on

Cold Press Juicing Method

Juice the oranges first.

They juice real easy just add them to the juicer one whole orange at a time.

Add the ginger next. You can put the entire amount in at once.

Finish by juicing the carrots.

Always go slow with carrots adding one long half at a time letting the juicer finish pressing each piece before adding more.

 

Tip: when buying carrots look for ones without cracks as this is an indication of dryness and less juice. Opt for the carrots in bunches, with their leafy green tops still attached. You can tell older carrots by the greens. If they are turning yellow they are drying out which means less juice.

Health Benefits

Carrot

Carrots are well known in juicing circles as the anti-cancer kings of the vegetable world. They contain antioxidants including alpha-carotene, lutein, beta-carotene and lycopene to name a few. Beta-carotene is the main nutrients when it comes to its cancer preventing properties. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A. It is believed that beta-carotene can break down the protective mucous membrane around cancer cells.

Carrot juice is also an effective natural remedy for an ulcer in the stomach. When carrots are juiced, they’re higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms in the intestines.

Orange

Oranges help quench your thirst and moisten your lungs, letting the energy flow freely in the chest. They also have a wide variety of phytonutrient compounds like anthocyanins, citrus flavanones, and various polyphenols. Oranges are not only a juicy and refreshing fruit but also offer a range of health benefits. Here's why oranges are good for various systems in our body:

Nutrition: Oranges are low in calories but high in vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect cells from damage. They also contain fiber, potassium, and other vitamins and minerals that support overall health.

Immune System: Vitamin C is essential for a healthy immune system. Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, which can help boost the immune system and reduce the risk of colds, flu, and other illnesses. Oranges destroy free radicals that cause signs of skin aging, scouring the intestine and flushing toxins from the body. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a predigested food. This allows for immediate absorption of all its abundant healing properties.

Digestive System: Oranges are a good source of fibre, which can help promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation. The fibre in oranges also helps support a healthy gut microbiome.

Cardiovascular/Circulatory System: Oranges are rich in antioxidants like flavonoids, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation and improve heart health. The potassium in oranges can also help regulate blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Nervous System: Oranges contain vitamin B6, which is important for the production of neurotransmitters like serotonin and dopamine. These neurotransmitters play a role in mood regulation and can help reduce stress and anxiety.

Respiratory System: Oranges are rich in vitamin C, which can help support respiratory health. Vitamin C has been shown to reduce the severity and duration of respiratory infections like the common cold. Oranges are full of lung-friendly antioxidants and packed with vitamin C which is well known for fighting infection and inflammation.

Skin Health: The antioxidants in oranges, including vitamin C, can help reduce the signs of aging and improve skin health. Oranges can also be used topically to improve skin tone and texture.

Skeletal System: Oranges are a good source of calcium, which is important for maintaining strong and healthy bones. Calcium is essential for bone mineralization and can help reduce the risk of osteoporosis.

Eye Health: Oranges contain nutrients like vitamin A, lutein, and zeaxanthin, which are important for eye health. These nutrients can help reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.
