Why We Love This Cranberry Apple Orange Juice Recipe
The juice from cranberries is notoriously tart. Which is why most cranberry juices have a ton of added sweetener—to balance out the sourness of the cranberry. That is unless you pick up a sugar-free version, in which case you’re either consuming stevia (yuck) or a sugar alcohol like Splenda (unhealthy).
This gluten-free cranberry apple juice recipe has no added sweetener (not even brown sugar). Instead, the sweetness comes from the natural sugars in the apple, orange and pear. But these delicious fruits do more than just sweeten and enhance the flavor of the beverage.
There are a ton of amazing health benefits that come with this fresh cranberry juice, including:
- Super high in vitamin C. Literally every ingredient in this cran-apple juice recipe is rich in vitamin C.
- High in potassium. Cranberry, apple and fennel have notable amounts of potassium.
- Antioxidant rich. Every ingredient is rich in antioxidants.
- Supports immune system. As you’d expect with a beverage high in vitamin C.
- Anti-inflammatory. Most of the ingredients have anti-inflammatory properties.
- Can lower cholesterol. The orange and apple may help lower cholesterol.
- High in calcium. Every ingredient has some calcium.
Another important nutrition fact: each 12 ounce glass has around 90 calories.
