Orange, Lemon, and Pear Juice Recipe (Thirstday)

The Recipe

A simple juice drink that just requires a couple fruits, ice, water, and a blender!

Ingredients:

  • 3 Peeled oranges
  • 1 Pear
  • 1 Lemon, cut in half and ready to squeeze
  • Handful of ice
  • A small amount (about 1/4 cup) of water or even orange juice

The only work that is needed is for you to do a little cutting and peeling, and plugging in the blender. Throw everything in, blend, and drink right away. This is one of my friends’ favorite drinks when studying and once she showed me, I understood why.

 

The Benefits!

The oranges are full of vitamin-C, which is crucial for tissue growth in the body, particularly in skin, blood vessels, and and bone. It is a natural antioxidant and will also help heal cuts and scraps on your body, thanks to it being an important component of  connective tissue growth process.

The pear is a quality source of dietary fiber. Including them into your diet will help protect you from colon cancer, and provide you with vitamin-C, copper, iron, potassium, manganese and magnesium. The added bonus of pears is that they are very low in calories which could obviously help curve an appetite where you would otherwise chow down a truck load of calories.

The lemon is small, but a huge benefit. Most people hear about oranges having vitamin-C and bananas having potassium, but lemons have a lot of benefits. It promotes hydration, also provides vitamin-C, improves skin quality, helps weight loss, assists digestion, helps prevent kidney stones, and even freshens your breath (bow-chicka-wow-wow!).

I hope you enjoy this drink as much as your body will enjoy all the healthy nutrients it will provide!
