If you've been around here before, it's pretty well established that we drink a lot of orange juice in our house. In fact, my youngest child is probably a significant percentage of orange juice.
With the holidays upon us, we enjoy orange juice for many things. It's always a part of our holiday breakfasts, and you can even find it in a recipe or two.
My daughter is home from college, and has really enjoyed baking since she was very young and took a cooking class. In that class, they learned to make pound cake with an orange glaze, and she still makes it for holidays.
While I make my pound cake from the grocery, either way, it's made more awesome with orange juice:
1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
1-2 tbsp. orange juice
(You can add some grated orange peel if you want to be fancy)
Mix until smooth and heat and drizzle over warm pound cake
Using really good orange juice makes a big difference in recipes and especially for drinking. That's why we enjoy Tropicana Pure Premium orange juice, it's worth it. One taste, and there's no doubt that it's made from fresh oranges.
Did you know that Tropicana Pure Premium is 100% pure and natural orange juice made from fresh Florida oranges? Yep, it comes from oranges from hard working growers in Florida.
In fact, Tropicana is the single largest buyer of Florida fruit, purchasing approximately 11.6 billion oranges from Florida each year.
