Cran Apple Juice

An apple a day keeps the doctor away? There’s possible truth to this 🙂 Cranberry sure keeps any doctors away from your bladder (and liver)! This is one of our top favorite fruit juice recipes.

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup of fresh cranberries
  • 4-6 large carrots
  • 2 apples
  • optional: ½ cup water

Directions:

Core the apples. Juice the carrots, apples and cranberries. Drink immediately.

It is recommended that fruit juice be kept to a minimum of 1 glass a day due to sugar content. Don’t let this hold you back though, they are full of goodness just like vegetables, and tend to have a higher dose of those all important keep-me-young antioxidants.
