Tips to make this juice perfectly
- Customize the juice. If there are any other fruits or vegetables you’d like to add to this juice go ahead! I have added apples, ginger, and celery before and they all work perfectly.
- Use juicy oranges. Some oranges are not as juicy as others. If the oranges you are using are not as juicy you may need to add a few more.
- Change the ratio. If you prefer more mango or more orange in your juice you can change the ratios of the recipe to suit your preference.
- Use ripe fruit. The more ripe fruit is the sweeter it is due to natural sugars that develop, so use ripe fruit for this fresh juice recipe to ensure you have a delicious sweet juice at the end. If you feel you need a touch more sweetnes to your juice you can add a teaspoon of honey or agave syrup.
Should I peel mango before juicing?
Fruits with hard or inedible skins should be peeled before juicing, the skins of fruits and vegetables are usually edible (yes, even mango skins) and often contain a higher amount of nutrients than the internal flesh of the food. If you are juicing a mango with a blender you should peel the skin of the mango as it will affect the texture of the blended juice. If you are juicing a mango with a juicer you can leave the skin on or you can peel it first.
How to store this juice
Store the fresh juice in a sealed large jar or bottle in the fridge. The fresh juice can then be stored for up to a week. Before drinking, give the juice a shake or a mix as it is natural for some separation to occur as the sediments fall to the bottom of the juice.
