Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice with KitchenAid Citrus Juicer Attachment

There’s nothing like a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice, especially when you actually picked the oranges off of an orange tree, instead of placing them in a plastic baggie and weighing them at the grocery store.  My husband drinks orange juice like kids drink milk.  Kids drink milk, right?  I did, like it was going out of style.  I drank so much milk when I was younger, I was given the nickname “Milk-Bucket” from my dad.  I actually never drink milk anymore…funny.  So anyway, he drinks OJ a lot, but tries to avoid drinking that much because it’s just filled with extra calories and chemicals that wouldn’t be found in squeezing your own orange.  We own a KitchenAid, which is seriously the best investment for our kitchen, and used the juicer attachment for the first time.  It was super easy to use, but it is crazy how many oranges you have to juice for a full glass!  Luckily, we had a whole bag full that we picked from my dad’s orange tree.  We were overflowing with oranges, he’s juiced himself a glass of OJ the past few nights.

 

I recommend getting this KitchenAid attachment!  It’s super easy to use, inexpensive, and the freshness results are satisfying!
