There’s nothing better than starting the day with a refreshing class of orange juice! There’s something about knowing it’s good for you which just makes it even more delicious. Orange juice has always been a staple in my family household. As soon as we would wake up mum would always say “have your orange juice”. This would always be followed up with “you need the vitamin C so you don’t get sick”. I’m sorry but she is right in this aspect. I know we often think our own mum doesn’t know what she’s taking about. But she’s actually right. So, I thought what better way to celebrate me coming into a quarter of a century then with my favourite orange juice recipe.

 

Now it’s pretty simple but there’s one special ingredient I add which just takes it to that next level. This is sure to go down a treat with the whole family. The kids will love it but if you even want to make it into a “special” adult drink you can just simply add white rum or even tequila. There’s also this great mock tail recipe from Pepper Delight which looks delicious. Check out our Munch Reusable drinking straws as well as they are perfect for every drink on any occasion.

There are so many proven health benefits from oranges as well. Firstly, it’s been proven to boost the immune system because oranges are pack with vitamin C and if you didn’t know vitamin C “functions as a primary antioxidant in the body”. One glass of orange juice is more than 200% more than the recommended daily vitamin C intake. So, in other words make sure you have that glass of OJ because it’s actually good for you.
