How do you make orange juice in a blender?
This is how you do it. You start off with some water. We’re going
to need one cup of filtered water in there. Now you need an orange. And
I’m going to leave as much of this white pith on as possible. All this fiber
is really the most nutritious part. Really, particularly it’s
high in vitamin C and calcium. All right? So you can actually get your calcium
through your fruits and veg. You don’t always have to drink milk. Now there’s a big difference you probably
have a juicer at home. It’s probably sitting at home got a little dust
on it. You probably don’t use it that much. It’s kind of hard to clean, right?
Hey, I’m not bagging juicing, I still juice. But there’s a big different
between blending and juicing. Normal juicing just pulls the water well,
the water and the sugar. It’s about 10% sugar in here on its own which is
about the equivalent about 10% sugar is the same thing as like a cloak and
stuff like that. And the thing about juicing is that you’re throwing away
the fiber. Okay, this fiber here, this is the most nutritious part. It
has all the good stuff in here. There’s lots of benefits of having this in
our system. Particularly diabetics, they won’t be able to drink the
juice but they will be able to eat the fruit because the juice has too much
sugar so they can’t drink it. But by eating the fruit they’re getting the
fiber and the fiber slows down the absorption of the sugars into your body.
So instead of getting a big hit with the juice you go up and then you
come back down. It’s that sugar rush. By having a smoothie or by blending
it and having that fiber you’re still going to have the energy and those sugars
but the fiber is going to slow down the absorption so you’ll have more
energy long-term. The fiber also helps pull toxins out of our
body. Where’s the lid. It also helps us lose weight. It’s going to fill us
up for a lot longer as well. Plus we pay for our fruit and veg by how much
it weighs. You might as well use all of it, right? So let’s blend this
up. All right. Let’s dig into this. Very orange.
All right. Look how smooth this is. That is all the fiber and all the
seeds and everything from the whole orange there. You know the problem with
normal juicing and like buying bottled juice and stuff at the supermarket,
it’s just so much sugar. And you know too much sugar leads to diabetes
and it’s just very, very bad for the body and we’re feeding it to kids.
At a very young age you can’t be giving kids a lot of sugar. So by having the
fruit, making it in a blender, it’s a lot easier. Easier to clean as well.
And plus all the benefits of the fiber. So hopefully you’ll enjoy it. All right. Welcome. We’re going to make some
green smoothies. If you don’t know what a green smoothie is, it’s very simple.
It’s this new craze that’s going around the world. All it is, it’s really
simply a combination of fresh fruits and… [ends abruptly]
