Mandarin Orange Water: A Healthy Vitamin C-Packed Drink Recipe for Coronavirus Quarantine by Donna John
Vitamin C supplements, orange juice and citrus fruit are hot commodities right now because of coronavirus (COVID-19). While researchers say that no supplement, including vitamin C, can prevent or treat COVID-19, the vitamin is still important for our health – it helps prevent or reverse cellular damage and aids in immune health.
An ICU nurse friend of mine gave me this mandarin orange water recipe that she uses for hydration and for a vitamin boost. If it's nurse recommended and can up my vitamin C intake, count me in. Want to make an adults-only version? Add a little vodka or rum.
- 2 - 3 mandarin oranges (Cuties), peeled and broken into segments
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup water
- few drops zero-calorie liquid vanilla sweetener
Here's how to make it:
Put all ingredients into a blender.
Blend until thoroughly combined.
Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a glass. (Or improvise and use a cheese grater like I did.) Serve.
