Here in SoCal, I am often inundated with citrus; not a bad thing...it's just that plain old citrus juice can be boring. Well, after making this orange-ade, I don't think we will ever drink plain old citrus juice again! Even my two year old gave this a huge thumbs up!
This recipe is super easy to make and won't last long in your house:
*2 cups of fresh squeezed orange juice (you can also add in some grapefruit, tangerine, or a lemon or two if you don't have enough oranges, which is what I did)
*1 cup sucanat (unprocessed sugar) or if you don't have this, then 3/4 cup regular sugar
*1 cup of whey (or if you made my lemonade last week and have some left, you can use 1 1/2 cup of that as a starter)
*A gallon sized glass jar
