Expert Tips

You can add other fruits to this juice as well, and if it's too sweet, you can also squeeze a little lemon or lime juice into it.

Natural fruit juice recipes are simple to make, and a fantastic way to add wholesome foods (in this case fruits) to your family's diet. In Peru, for example, you can find a glass of fresh orange and papaya juice in every breakfast table. You may be eating eggs, oatmeal, pancakes, tamales, or toasts with butter. The food varies, but the fresh juice is almost always there. The combination of this juice is very simple: only the two ingredients mentioned above. But the result is so much greater than the sum of its two parts! I like regular OJ, and have nothing against it. But blending some freshly-squeezed OJ with a cup of papaya takes it to a whole new level. This probably has a lot to do with the viscosity of papaya, which soothes the stomach and buffers the acidity (and in some cases the excessive sweetness) of orange juice. Remember that when it comes to drinking fruit juices, moderation is key. Forget the family-sized glasses and never-ending refills, and enjoy just a cup of this nourishing juice next to breakfast whenever you get the chance.

This juice is also a great base for many green smoothies. Just add the vegetables of your choice to the blender, and enjoy.

Directions

  • 1 Squeeze the oranges.
  • 2 Blend the orange juice with the papaya.
