Rated 5 out of 5 by Magoo from Nice juice Used the Pro Series 750. Made about 2 cups of juice. No need for sugar. If using the 750 only need to mix on 10 for about 30 seconds to get the juice with the ingredients and amount shown. Real good juice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Betsy G from Perfect Start to the Day Using the 750 made making this juice recipe a cinch. I agree that the extra sugar isn't necessary if the oranges are relatively fresh; if they have started to turn the flavor will benefit from the extra touch. I've elected to peel my oranges when I buy them and place the individuals in ziploc bags in the freezer. In the morning I can toss one in Vitamix with a little water and a splash of vanilla (I've also occasionally tossed in a slice of fresh ginger) and blend a single serving without having to mess with the ice cubes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3doglovr from Delish! I used a Vitamix 7500 and this was delicious! Next time I'll omit the sugar or cut it in half. no pulp whatsoever! Husband thought it was too frothy but if I cut the blending time it will probably be more juice-like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Renut from Orange Julius Re-mix We tried this recipe and it turned out tasting like a refreshing Orange Julius! We exchanged the water for Almond Milk, and the sugar can also be substituted with honey or agave syrup. It is so good, we've made it four days in a row!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Tiffany from Pretty Darn Good! This was my very first time using my Vitamix and I am very impressed! There is very little to no pulp in this juice! I tried it with the vanilla but next time I will omit it, I think it over powered the raw flavor of the oranges. All in all it's easy and delicious and perfectly made one glass!

How long do you imagine I could leave the finished product in the fridge if at all? I have air tight bottles that I can put the juice in.
We suggest saving in a separate container for up to 1 week, covered and refrigerated.

Can this be frozen?
Yes you can put it in the freezer. It will freeze into a very dense ice block.

When making fresh orange juice can I just leave the seeds or do I need to remove them before blending ?
You can leave them in the seeds of the oranges will be pulverized by the machine.

Hi do I really have to peel the oranges? At Costco the sales rep said to leave on the skin. Please advise thank you.
Yes, please peel the oranges. There are two main reasons: If the oranges are not organic than you are introducing pesticides into your orange juice. If you do not peel the pith off of the orange than you will have an extremely bitter orange juice that you will not want to drink.
