Oranges (valencia) Small are one of the healthiest fruits you can eat because they are filled with Vitamin C, fibre, potassium and low in calories. Consuming oranges more often may protect against heart disease, cancer and diabetes. They may also help to improve memory, blood pressure, immune system and overall health. Add them fresh to your breakfast smoothie bowl, to salads or use some freshly squeezed juice to enhance the flavour of a drink. Bake a fresh orange cake as a dessert. Use juice and zest to flavour syrups, curds and doughs. Their robust flavour can complement spicy seasonings. This versatile fruit pairs well with almonds, basil, chocolate, cilantro, coffee, nutmeg, and mint.
