Orange Juice

Among the fruits Sarah eaten before, I’ve left out orange so far because it said to be acidic. Now that she’s almost three, I think it’s about time.

I do not have juice extractor at home, so it always gives me an excuse for not making fresh orange juice; but after talking to my neighbour, Jean, I was told that juice squeezer was actually quite convenient and it is not expensive either…so why not give it a try, right?

This is the first time Sarah drink fresh-squeezed orange juice; she loves it so much. Guess what, after having her first taste of the juice, she’s now goes for the orange itself!

yes orange juice is very good. I gave mine boy 1 cup every morning. 3 biji or orange. Been doing that since long time already...i think when he was 1 1/2 yr old..

I also use the thing to squeeze the orange. Easier. No need juicer.

MeRy said...

Orange juice......nice n refreshing.
Have u tried on feeding Sarah dragon fruit? Ryan loves it alot..

nicole said...

Joanne, i oso squeeze orange with using this... hahhahah.... Normally i pick orange will pick those "got butt hole" type de orange, taste sweet than sour. :)

I use to make tis orange juice, then i take an red apple, peel the skin and cut all apple in small pieces, then add to orange juice... like cocktail~~~ my gals love eat/drink tis...

Mummy Moon said...

I also like to use squeezer, easy and fast.. If I use juicer, I will add in carrots or apples...

Sarah is getting prettier and prettier :)

orange juice..good with lots of vit C. I'm also using the same 'equipment'...easy to use and most important, easier to wash/clean as compare to the complicated juicer.

If you want to buy sweet oranges, do do check the label for 4013 (of any brand).

I have a juicer but I still prefer to use this simple orange squeezer for OJ cos it's so much more easier to wash. I usually use the juicer for those hard fruits like apples, carrot etc.

LOL! "An orange a day keeps the doctor at bay!" great choice Sarah!

Mommy please have a nice day ahead!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

A great statement, I like it:-)
Wishing you have a pleasant day too.

Thank you so much for the great tips of buying sweet orange. I will definitely remember the label no.
I can imagine the juicer more susah to clean and wash. I have a blender at home but I seldom use it for blending. I dislike cleaning it too.

I felt so happy the moment I saw Sarah gulping the orange juice. I know her body will full with vit c:-)
Is true. I able to clean the juice squeezer within minute. :-)

Thank you so much for your comment. You always gives me and Sarah sweet words.

One thing...Juice squeezer has to use some energy to squeeze the juice. But it is so much easier to clean compared to juicer.

Woww, your DIY cocktail. Nice!
Anyway, thanks for your tip too in picking the sweeter orange. I never know all this knowledge.

Yeah, it is definitely nice and quench the thirst too:-)
Dragon fruit..Sarah has tried it several times when I had it. She kinda like it:-)
Good that Ryan likes dragon fruit. It has a lot of vitamins too.

May I know with 3 oranges, how many ml of juice able to squeeze out?
For me, I only able to get 25ml of orange juice for 1 biji orange.
Joshua very lucky lah. Mommy has been preparing nice and healthy fresh juice for him since he was very young.

CH Voon said...

yes, oranges juices (vitamin C) is good to improve Sarah immune system.

an oranges a day keep doctor away.

Adrine said...

Sarah looks so pretty in the photo :)

MommyAngel said...

I am glad that she loves the juice :) I haven't try that for Angel yet, only the fruits, maybe I shall make some juice for her someday.

Sarah's hair looks different, she looks pretty :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Actually Sarah loves to drink juice. Whenever I ordered fruit juice from outside, she will definitely take MANY sips from me:-)
So it is really a great news that she loves the one that I prepared for her.
I think it is very good that Angel loves fruits. But if she loves fruit juice, it will be another way for her to enjoy fruits; liquid and solid texture.
Is it ar? Sarah's hair looked diff in the pic? Hehe...maybe I tied her hair differently:-)
Thanks for your lovely comment.

Adrine, thank you so much for your comment.

Hope that Sarah become stronger with drinking more orange juice.
Does Vanessa likes it?

Kristie said...

nice! Jayden loves oranges too... :)

Btw the photo of sarah and her smile looks so much like u lah! :)

Ann said...

Cool! My boy used to love his fruits alot too but ever since the pead told us orange causes phlegm, we have kinda reduced intake alot.

But every other thing he wants orange flavour including biscuits!!!

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

hmm...yea, better let Christopher eats fruits moderately since it will cause him phlegm.
Is it? He loves all types of food with orange flavor. He is really an Orange Lover:-)

Good good good. Oranges are good source of vitamins, good that Jayden likes it.
Ya ka..Sarah looks alike me in the photo. I did not know that I smile like that all this while:-)

Shenny's mommy said...

Orange is one of Shenny favourite fruit too. I prefer to slice the orange and let her bite and chew on it.
Sarah does look prettier nowadays.

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Shenny's Mommy:
Nowadays Sarah started fall in love with orange. Whenever she sees me eating, she sure wants to eat too:-)
An oranges a day keep doctor away...Shenny, keep up your good work in eating more oranges yeah:-)
Thank you so much for your comment Shenny's Mommy. A big Muak to you on behalf of Sarah:-)

Adrine said...

I saw a similar juice squezer when I was out last weekend - only RM2.90 so I bought it to try. You were right, it's pretty easy to squeeze and easy to wash up.

So thanks to your post, Elyssa got her first cup of freshly-squeezed orange juice from mummy! Thx for sharing :)

Mummy Gwen said...

Yes the juicer is easy to clean but very tring haha.

I just give Gwen eat the oranges. I don't have a juicer at home.

Sarah is getting prettier each day. She is very fair like you. :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Mommy Gwen:
I gotto agree with you Mommy Gwen. It is quite tiring to squeeze the juice. And not much juice able to get from juice squeezer.
Good that Gwen likes to eat orange just like that. It is full with fiber.
Thank you thank you for your comment to Sarah. A big hug to you.

Woww, you able to get the similar squeezer at RM2.90? So nice. Mine is about RM5.90.
I able to clean the juice squeezer within minute.:-) But not much juice able to squeeze out yeah?
You are most welcome dear. And I am glad that Elyssa loves her orange juice.

Merryn said...

cool :) My Ethan won't touch oranges.. dunno why. he so used to love them when he was younger.. not anymore.

Sarah is so beautiful :)

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

I do think kids taste preference will change from time to time. So who knows, Ethan will sooner loves orange:-)
Thank you very much for your nice comment. Happy to hear that and I am sure if Sarah know Auntie Merrryn is praising her, she will happy too:-)

BoeyJoey said...

Orange juice is good, just try to limit the intake and take after food :-).

Sarah's Daddy and Mommy said...

Thanks for your advice.
I will definitely remember that:-)
