There is nothing better than waking up on a Sunday morning and having brunch with your friends. All the delicious dishes, the good company and, of course, freshly-squeezed orange juice.

Unfortunately, that glass can sometimes cost a pretty penny, but if you simply can’t live without it, make it and other citrus juices at home! If you need convincing or guidance, read on.

Money Saver

A small glass of orange juice can cost upwards of $4 at a restaurant, which is really quite a lot of money. Instead, buy oranges in bulk and make your own at home! A lot of grocery stores will sell them in 1, 2 or even 5-pound bags, and for a much more reasonable price.

No Special Tools

Making any freshly-squeezed citrus juice is really simple to do and doesn’t require any special machinery. All you have to do is cut them in half or quarters, depending on how big your fruit is, and squeeze it into your cup! Or, you can buy a cheap hand juicer. 

Many Varieties

The best part of making juice at home is that you can customize it your liking! You can make straight up juices like orange or grapefruit, but you can also combine them with other citruses like pomelo, lime, and more!
