Citrus Juice – Liquid Sunshine

Citrus Juice Web

The picture says it all! The vibrancy of the juice color jumps out of the photo!

Tangelo JuiceIn the winter months in Maui, citrus fruits are abundant: from sweet to sour tangelos, pomelos, wonderful varieties of lemons: variegated, Meyer’s; Key lime, Tahitian lime, Kaffir lime; Navel oranges…on and on.

My dear friend Linda who care takes a citrus orchard turned me on to an inexpensive electrical citrus juicer from Black and Decker. The juicer not only saves your hands, the best part – it is so easy to clean.

We use lemon and lime juice for so many things: as a morning elixir with warm water and honey, added to drinking water/green drink, in salad dressings, fruit salads etc. To avoid the bounty of fruits going bad, I juice a bunch at peek ripeness and store in smaller containers in the freezer, ice cube trays works well for this – to then transfer into ziplock bags for future use.

Tangelo juice is just outrageously delicious – sweet and nourishing…just a few ounces, as it is high in sugar – great before, during or after a workout.
