Other Ways to Enjoy Your Orange Juice

My grandmother would give me orange juice every morning quoting the commercial “A day without orange juice is a day without sunshine”. Now my mother says the same thing to my toddler son when she gives him orange juice every morning as I walk out the door to work. I love juice but worry about the empty sugar and calories in the drink. In my mind I weigh out the choices, I know juice have vitamins and minerals that are healthy but the sugar. But then I think, it is natural sugar right? I would rather my son get vitamin C from natural foods like juice instead of chewable supplements.

I have come to a happy medium with my love of juice. I now water it down, taking half juice and half water. I do this when I first purchase the best orange juice at RedMart before it even goes in my home fridge. This way no one knows it is watered down. I take the juice not watered down and do several things. One is adding a teaspoon of juice to my water bottles that I take to work. This gives me just a hint of flavor and I found I drink more water in a day this way. Next I take the extra fruit juice and pour it into my ice cube trays and then add popsicle sticks. Sometimes I’m even crazy and mix fruit juices to make different flavored popsicles. My family gets a fruity frozen treat. I also save some of the full strength juice in an empty water bottle to use in dinner recipes. I use it in orange chicken or in a tropical sauce. Juice is good for my family and I still let them drink it on a daily basis, just at half the sunshine.
