Using a blender

  • Peel the oranges and cut them into small pieces of about an inch each. Remove all the seeds, if any.
  • Put all the orange pieces into the blender and blend until pureed.
  • Add a cup of water and blend it again to remove all the juice completely.
  • Strain the juice using a strainer and add a pinch of salt to it.
  • Refrigerate or pour over ice cubes and serve chilled.


If you taste the juice and find it to be bitter, feel free to add any sweetener to adjust the taste.
A freshly squeezed orange juice that hasn’t been processed will only be good for 3-4 days in the refrigerator. Orange juice that has been processed and opened will be good for 5-7 days in the fridge.
