Vitamin C-rich Blood Orange And Tangerine Juice

I have to mention that this juice is extremely sweet! In fact, it’s sickly sweet so you MUST add in some water or enough ice cubes to be able to get it down. With that out of the way, let’s take a look at the benefits of this juice.

Blood Orange And Tangerine Juice Benefits

Blood Oranges – are very nutritious and healthier than regular oranges because they contain an amazing antioxidant called anthocyanin. This antioxidant helps reduce free radicals and has anti-cancer properties. Blood oranges are also very high in vitamin C and dietary fiber.

Tangerine – also contains a good amount of vitamin C, plus antioxidants, and it helps reduce inflammation. Additionally, tangerines contain vitamin A, potassium, thiamin, and folate.

Lemons – I’m sure you already know are a great source of vitamin C as well plus they’ll give your juice a bit of sourness and reduce sweetness.

Ginger – helps relieve pain caused by inflammation reduces bloating and improves digestion so I guess you could call this juice anti-inflammatory.

Oooooh, where do I start? You can get as creative as you possibly can with this recipe. You could add spinach or kale for more iron and protein but that’ll turn your juice into a smoothie. Or you could go for other fruits like pineapple, mangos, apricots, figs, or strawberries. 

What I like to do is use the juice recipe above as a base which I mix with enough water and throw in my fresh fruits. That way, I still get all the nutrients from the juice itself plus the added fruits.  

Storing Leftovers

So this recipe calls for 1 serving but if you make a whole batch, you can keep it in the fridge for 3-4 days. You can also make icicles by freezing them in ice trays and adding them to your water during the summer. If you do freeze the juice, omit the ice cubes after pouring cause it’ll reduce the amount of sweetness in the juice.
