Freshly Squeezed Oranges Smoothie

If you are worried about what to do with all your left over oranges, this recipe is a great go to option. In fact it prefers for your fruit to be less firm and left over volume is not an issue.

I absolutely love my Cusinart lemon squeezer. I’ve been using it for many years, as you can see from it’s appearance. Although probably this product’s intent was specific to lemons only, I’ve successfully used it to get juices out of limes and oranges as well.

Next you will need a blender or food processor. This blender has also been with us for a long time, hence I am such a fan of Cusinart brand. I love to keep things around and working for a long time.

Now that all your tools are in place, the rest will require very little effort for a ton of benefit.

Freshly Squeezed Oranges Smoothie


  • About 3 oranges (these don’t need to be super fresh). Add more if you want this is going to be your main liquid base.
  • Blueberries – about a cup
  • Strawberries – I love strawberries so I added a lot, almost all of 18oz box mine came in
  • 1 Banana

Step 1. Cut your oranges in half. Place each piece inside the lemon squeezer flash side down one at a time. Press and squeeze handles together right into your blander. Repeat this with all the oranges. You might want to refold and try again with previously squeezed pieces to get as much juice out as possible. Don’t worry if some of the flesh falls into the blander, it will only enhance the taste, texture and the nutrients content.

Step 2. Add strawberries and blueberries to the blender.

Step 3. Turn the blender on and select food processor option if available. Your blender/food processor might have different settings, youiu might want to refer to your manufacturer’s guide for the best option to use.

Step 4. Once all of the fruit has been blended up, pause and add a banana to your smoothie. Continue to blend until fully incorporated. Maybe 1 or 2 minutes.

So that was easy right. Now you have lots of time left to crochet this summer cup cozy
