Ever since I was a kid, Calamansi juice has been the most-requested juice I ask my mom to make for me. Even my husband loves the taste of it! My mom makes this juice almost everyday, especially if someone in our family has a cold and cough. We don’t usually buy calamansi in the market because in the province, my mom has her own calamansi tree. My kids had calamansi juice for the first time here and they totally fell in love with the taste. They love to help picking the fruit from the tree with their Lola (Grandma) to make calamansi juice. Filipinos also love to use calamansi to mix with dipping sauce, like in soy sauce with fresh chilis. It makes food like grilled fish or liempo so good! Even for noodles like pancit, we love to use calamansi too. Here are a few simple steps on how my mom and I make this fresh and delicious calamansi juice!

 

Ingredients:

Calamansi

½ cup of sugar (or more depending on your liking)

5 cups of water

 

Step 1 Wash calamansi and cut the top or through the center.

Step 2 Using a fruit drainer and small pitcher, squeeze calamansi into it to separate the seeds from the juice. I probably use 20 to 30 pieces of calamansi.

Step 3 After squeezing all the calamansi, pour 5 cups of water into the pitcher.

Step 4 Use ½ cup of sugar (or more depending on your liking) and stir it well.

Step 5 Store it in the fridge until it’s chilled or simply add ice to your glass, to start drinking this fresh and delicious juice.

 

Anyone here tried calamansi juice? What’s your favorite juice from other parts of the world?

We are now in my hometown of Marinduque in the Philippines. I wish my husband was here with me and the kids now, to enjoy the beautiful island and be together on Valentine’s Day. I’m excited to see him when he arrives in the next few days. Anyways, here’s a new style post for the girls who would like to try an off-shoulder dress. Product details below!
