Juicing doesn’t always have to be done in a juicer. Sometimes you can use your high-speed blender to completely pulverize the ingredients, creating a juice. Don’t skimp on freshly squeezing all of your juices when called for because it is a lot healthier.

Store bought juice, regardless if it is from concentrate or not is always pasteurized. Pasteurization, while great for mass production to keep people from getting sick removes a lot of benefits and beneficial gut bacteria from the food.

With this recipe, you get the goodness of both orange juice and blueberries. You’re going to benefit from the fiber too which is good for the morning to help your body accept a sweet juice without sugar overload.

Orange juice has lots of vitamin C. Oranges are also cancer preventing due to the citrus limuloids which have been proven to help fight skin cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer, stomach cancer and even colon cancer.
