Juice of the Month: “Sunshine” Juice

3 Jul

Happy July!

The “Sunshine” juice is the extremely delicious and packed with Vitamin C!

Finished Juice 2

Made with mint leaves, oranges, and mango chunks, this juice recipe proves to be the easiest and the tastiest without added sugars!

I didn’t use any stevia for this recipe, as the ingredients already make it naturally sweet. The mint leaves add an interesting zing to it, and the orange with mango combo is perfect for a hot day of summer. You can even through in some liquor with this recipe, and make it a fresh pool/beach side drink with ice!

MangoChunks

I made sure to buy frozen mango chunks, and let them thaw out before placing them inside the juicer or else no juice will come out. But at least with mango chunks, you don’t waste a whole mango or so, and can always refreeze at your convenience with no mess or hassle.

It takes my juicer about 4 oranges to create a cupful of juice, so that’s the amount of peeled oranges I used. I didn’t add too much mint leaves. Around 4 will do it. Mix all of the ingredients together to create a delicious, semi-thick juice with a whole lot of flavor.

MangoMintInJuicer

Mangos are in the same family as coconuts, olives, and dates, as they all have pits in the middle. The health benefits of mangos includes prevention of colon cancer and helpful factors to the digestive system. Along with oranges, mangos are rich in vitamin C. It’s a true tropical fruit, and by far the most delicious I’ve ever had.

This isn’t so much as a calorie friendly drink, but if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth this is a relatively easy recipe that doesn’t equal the calories of a chocolate cake (let’s be real, chocolate cake is great but this is a nice substitute).

Thanks for reading, and enjoy your Sunshine juice!

    Ou, that looks and sounds super yummy! It’s funny to think about how many oranges too get so little juice, though. You’d think there would be a bit more, haha.
