SPINACH ORANGE JUICE RECIPE
Required Kitchen Equipment
Step 1: For the first step you'll need to set out your centrifugal juicer on a flat, dry, and clean surface. Next you will want to assemble your juicer, however, do be sure that it's unplugged while you do this. Electric appliances that have been stored away for a long amount of time usually accumulate dust on them, so be sure to wipe down the inside and outside of the device with a lightly moistened towel. Once the juicer is ready for use go ahead and plug it in.
Step 2: Take your fresh oranges and fresh bunch of spinach and thoroughly rinse them both under cold water. When washing your fresh spinach try not to smash it, as this may cause it to lose some of it's juice yield. I would strongly recommend spraying both the oranges and spinach with an all natural citric acid based produce wash, and this will remove dangerous contaminants such as E. coli, insect feces, and water resistant pesticides.
Step 3: For step three you'll want to completely peel your fresh oranges. On a precautionary note you definitely do want to ever juice an orange with its peel, as it will ruin the juice's flavor and give you a terrible stomach ache. Once you have peeled your oranges you will then want to quarter them so that they fit very comfortably into your juicer's feeder opening.
Step 4: Please turn on your centrifugal juicer and begin gently pressing your orange pieces and spinach through the machine. It's important that you do not press the produce through the machine too vigorously, as this may break the juicer's motor. Continue juicing your fresh produce until you have approximately 8 to 12 fluid ounces of greenish yellow juice, which is one full serving. Use more or less produce than the called for amount if you need to, as the liquid volume within oranges and spinach can greatly vary.
Step 5: Once you're done juicing be sure to stir the beverage, as this will ensure a consistent flavor and texture. If any foam has collected at the top of the juice then remove it using a spoon. This spinach orange juice blend tastes amazing served with crushed ice and a thinly cut orange wedge.
