I don’t know about you, but I really need to experience some sunshine very soon! The Danish winter weather has been so wired this season – it has been like a yearlong autumn with rain, storms and grey skies and it is not until recently that we have gotten a bit of snow. Actually some one told me the other day that we have only had 10 hours of sunshine in January… WTF ….!!! No wonder that I miss the sun and all it brings (including the important D-vitamines).
Well, if the sunshine won’t come to me and I don’t have time to vacationing right now, I will have to ‘settle’ with this PERFECT clementine and orange juice. It has a strong and still mild taste of summer and sunshine.
Ingredients (4-5 cups)
8 small clementines
2 large oranges
2 large apples
Peel clementines and oranges. I use a knife, but if you want to get as much out of the fruits as possible you can peel it using you fingers instead. Then remove the core of the apple and chop it.
Place all the fruit in a blend and blend until smooth – it takes approximately 3-4 minutes at medium speed. Cover a mixing bowl with a tea towel and pour the blended fruits in the bowl. Assemble the towel and squeeze with both hands until all the juice is in the bowl and all you have left is the dry fruit meat.
Serve the freshly squeezed juice immediately with a few ice cubes or place it in the fridge to cool down before you serve it. I make it just before serving and even though I always store my fruit in the fridge, the end product still needs cooled down so I use ice cubes.
