My Morning Routine – 100% Florida Orange Juice
I have a morning routine. Every single day when I get up, the first thing I do is have a glass of orange juice or make myself a smoothie with orange juice as one of the ingredients.
I drink one of those two beverages every single day. Florida Orange Juice is about the best tasting thing ever, especially first thing in the morning.
My husband is an orange juice fanatic and would, in fact, drink it for every meal of the day. He loves orange juice that much. He loves creating or adding different things to his orange juice as well.
He loves strawberry and blueberry orange juice. He uses orange and stir fry's carrots which is absolutely delicious. He is very creative when it comes to orange juice.
