Oranges are juicy and naturally sweet, which makes them super easy to turn into a treat!
Noticed how beautifully that rhymes?
Our post today features two quick orange treats.
By that I mean that the only ingredient we’ll be using today is an orange.
Go grab an orange, and let’s get slitting and squeezing!
Special equipment: none
Preps: 1 minute
You will need:
1 orange, unpeeled
How to make it:
- Cut the orange in half at its fattest point.
- Leaving the peel intact, slit around the perimeter and along all the internal white lines (in the shape of a star). This will make it easy to scoop out the pulp.
Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
Let’s make orange juice from scratch. It’s super fresh and chock-full of flavor!
Special equipment: squeezer
Preps: 2 minutes
You will need:
An orange per person
How to make it:
Squeeze orange and pour the juice and the pulp into a see-through glass.
Noticed the exquisite fragrance? Our juice was still a fruit a scant minute ago - all its vitamins alive and kicking! No factory juice will ever be as fresh as that.
Go enjoy your juice and I will take this opportunity to wish you a lovely weekend, brimming with freshness and beauty!

I’m pretty sure today’s title makes little sense. It will all come together in a minute. There’s a story worth telling behind the tomato in the picture. Here we go: A few months back, just before the end of the school year, my 8-year-old came home from school one day, holding a teensy gardening pot. Inside the pot there [...]
Do you like fresh, crisp, juicy veggies? If you do, I have one of the easiest salads for you today! This simple salad can be found - in different variations- all around the Mediterranean. If you’re familiar with the Greek salad, Italian salad, Couscous salad, and Tabbouleh, I’m sure you can spot the resemblance. This salad is a [...]
Do you find yourself sometimes snacking when you’re not really hungry? We probably all do that from time to time. For example, we might reach for a snack because we’re sad, tired, lonely, worried, annoyed or frustrated. The snack then becomes a form of ‘compensation’. Or we might have a snack at a social event just because that’s [...]
Is it true that watermelon is 92 percent water? I heard someone say it’s actually 97 percent, while others argue it’s ‘only’ 90 percent water. Truth is, I have no idea, but the juice you see in the picture is the ultimate proof that watermelon has loads and loads of water! Without further ado, let’s sluuuurp! Sweetened by: fruit [...]

Guess what I’m holding! That’s right. A homemade popsicle! Made entirely from fresh strawberries and orange. No sugar, no water, nothing else. I chose very ripe fruit since it’s naturally sweeter. My only challenge was to find ‘sticks’ and persuade them to stay upright. See picture below for a creative solution… For lack of better equipment, I used plastic containers [...]
