Juicing doesn’t always have to be done in a juicer. Sometimes you can use your high speed blender to completely pulverize the ingredients, creating a juice. Don’t skimp on freshly squeezing all of your juices when called for because it is a lot healthier.
Store bought juice, regardless if it is from concentrate or not, is always pasteurized. Pasteurization, while great for mass production to keep people from getting sick, removes a lot of benefits and beneficial gut bacteria from the food.
With this recipe you get the goodness of both orange juice and blueberries. You’re going to benefit from the fiber, too, which is good for in the morning to help your body accept a sweet juice without giving it a sugar overload.
Orange juice has lots of vitamin C. Oranges are also cancer preventing due to the citrus limuloids which have been proven to help fight skin cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, stomach cancer and even colon cancer.
2 Cups Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice
1 Cup Fresh, Filtered Cold Water
1 Cup Organic Blueberries
1) First, using a citrus juicer; juice two cups of fresh squeezed orange juice. This could be 4 or more oranges, depending on how juicy they are and their size. In this recipe it is okay to use as much pulp as you want because you are actually going to blend this juice. This will allow you to retain the benefits of the pulp and fiber.
2) Using a high speed blender, place all the ingredients in the blender in the order listed above under ingredients. Blend on high until smooth. You can now pour it through a strainer if you like, but in this case, keeping the pulp will make a better morning juice that includes fiber to help the sugar digest slower, keeping you feeling full longer.
This recipe makes about 32 ounces of juice. That might seem like a lot for one person. If you are enjoying it for the purposes of having a morning juice, you can share it. But if you are enjoying a juice fast, drink it all yourself. It will give you a really great, energetic start to your day.
