Fresh squeezed orange juice is the perfect summer drink and you’ll be surprised by how easy it is to make with 0 sugar added or fancy gadgets. All you’ll need is a dozzen oranges, a knife and your hands!


  • 12 oranges (you can use Navel, Cara Cara, Valentine, etc.) 


With your Hands:

  1. Start by rinsing your oranges well, then slice them in half and start squeezing into a glass. Keep going until you’ve made enough for a full glass! This tool can make things a lot easier.

With a Blender:

  1. Start by peeling your oranges with a perry knife, then chop into fourths before tossing into your blender. Blend until consistent in texture and then pour through a mesh strainer or nut milk bag to separate all solids from the juice.

With a Juicer:

  1. Start by giving your oranges a good wash and a rough chop and throwing them in your juicer, peel and all! The machine should do the work of separating the solids from the liquids and result in an awesome cup of juice.

The Moroccan Way:

  1. You will need a manual press tool for this method. Simply slice your oranges in half, place in the well and pull down the lever to squeeze the juice into your glass. Continue until you’ve made enough juice.
