Fresh Juice, Eco-Friendly All Purpose Cleaner, & More Eco-Friendly Ideas {For Less than $4}

Aldi's is one of my favorite stores.  I've have enjoyed buying produce there for quite some time, and as the times goes by, the store gets better and better.  Recently they had pineapples on sale for $0.99 and a bag of navel oranges for $2.49.  I had nothing in particular in mind, but I purchased them both.

Fast forward to most recently, I decided to blend my own juice.  I have an BLACK+DECKER Citrus Juicer and I used that to juice 3 of the navel oranges.  Then I used my Pampered Chef Pineapple Wedger Corer to remove the fruit from the core and the prickly skin.  With the help of my Nutribullet (since my regular blender has decided to give up the ghost), I blended the navel orange juice with the pineapple and created a super tasty juice.  Then I poured it all into a half gallon Mason Jar.

As the juice settles, it will become thick from the pineapple pulp.  I just drank it with a wide straw because I typically don't like pulp.  The next day, I juiced the remaining 3 navel oranges and added that to the juice to thin it out.  Just delicious!

View the short video below to see the making of the juice and other eco-friendly ideas for the fruit remains.  Truly a no-waste product.

Happy Juicing,


  1. The juice sounds delicious!

    I never shopped at Aldi's until moving into our new house since there is one up the street. Love it! We used to buy Lindt or Ghiradelli 70% snacking chocolate at our regular grocery store until discovering a German chocolate Aldi's carries. It is just as good with more ounces at a fraction of the cost! I bought a bag of oranges there too a couple of weeks ago. They were all perfect.

  2. You come up with the best ideas for tasty treats. : )

  3. Well done! Although I eat oranges and pineapple, I don't drink the juice because like you I don't like pulp at all! So I'm amazed you were able to drink it without straining it. Maybe the freshness negated the pulp, LOL. I also do the same thing with my orange peel but I use white vinegar instead. I love the infused orange smell. That is my favorite all purpose cleaner.
