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. MORE + LESS -
