Strawberry Orange juice is a refreshing fresh fruit juice recipe perfect for breakfast, happy hour, and parties.
In the peak summer days, fruits can work wonders to rejuvenate you, thanks to their abundant fiber and essential nutrients.
And to enjoy them, you don't have to adhere to the standard, mono-flavored juices similar to packaged versions. Mix and match various fresh fruit juices, adding herbs and spices to perk things up. Go all out and create a magnificent concoction.
This drink tastes best using fresh strawberries and freshly squeezed orange juice. You can also use frozen strawberries if desired.
These days, freshly squeezed orange juice is easily available in Lucky supermarkets or Whole Foods markets.
My daughter loves this strawberry and orange juice, so I sometimes give it for her breakfast or as an evening snack. It is also healthy because it is refined sugar-free.
Ingredients for Strawberry Orange Juice Recipe
Gather the ingredients to make the juice.
- Strawberries: Use fresh, ripe, in-season strawberries for flavorful juice. I highly recommend using organic strawberries whenever possible to avoid pesticides. You can also use frozen ones.
- Orange juice: Adds a slight tang and elevates the sweetness of the fruit. Freshly squeezed orange juice tastes best. However, you can also use store-bought orange juice.
- Sweetener (Optional): If the strawberries are not sweet enough, then you can add your choice of sweetener, e.g., maple syrup, honey, refined sugar, agave, etc.
- Chaat Masala: Add a pinch of Indian chaat masala for a subtle flavor. It's optional.
- Ice cubes: optional for serving.
How to Make Strawberry Orange Juice
Puree the chopped strawberries with some maple syrup or sugar in a high-speed blender or food processor until smooth.
Pour the chilled orange juice into the serving glass, followed by the strawberry puree. Sprinkle a pinch of chaat masala. Mix well.
Garnish with strawberries if desired. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
Storage Instructions for Strawberry Orange Juice
Refrigerator: This fresh strawberry orange fruit juice tastes best when served immediately. However, you can store any leftover juice for two days when stored in an airtight container in the fridge. Give a quick stir before serving.
Freezer: You can freeze the juice in a freezer-safe ziplock, ice cube tray, or popsicle mold for up to 2 months for the best flavor. Use them for slushies, and smoothies, or simply defrost and enjoy them as juice.
Optional Add-ins & Variations
- Liquids: you can dilute the juice further, if desired, with coconut water, or make it fizzy by adding sparkling water.
