Orange by Huffington Post

Whenever I’m brunching or having a gourmet breakfast, my go to juice always has been orange juice πŸ˜‰ (Or OJ as some call it!). There’s just something about the oranges that makes the perfect complement to any deluxe breakfast =) It’s the perfect balance of citrusy freshness and sweetness to awaken in the morning…

Especially now that it’s flu and cold season, you’re pretty much drinking nature’s golden flu fighter! Sure the sugar content is slightly worrying, but if that’s the case you can always go for freshly squeezed organic with no added sugar. Part of the fun in making your own OJ is the fruit juicer!
