  3. Put one half of an orange on the hand juicer and squeeze it until all the juice is out.
  4. Repeat the above step until the juice from all the oranges is squeezed.
  5. You may strain the collected juice using a strainer or skip the straining and add some pulp from the orange to it.
  6. Pour it in a glass filled with ice cubes, add a pinch of pink salt, stir well, and enjoy your tangy drink!

  2. Put all the orange pieces into the blender and blend until pureed.
  3. Add a cup of water and blend it again to remove all the juice completely.
  4. Strain the juice using a strainer and add a pinch of salt to it.
  5. Refrigerate or pour over ice cubes and serve chilled.
Recipe Notes

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.
