Black Currant Juice

Black Currant JuiceHere’s a little riddle for you: What contains four times the vitamin C of an orange, twice the potassium of a banana, and double the antioxidant power found in blueberries? You guessed it: the black currant. These shiny little dark berries developed a bad rap in the US during the first half of the 20th century because they were thought to spread a dangerous disease to pine trees. It turns out that this concern was entirely overblown, and so now black currants are beginning to receive the accolades that they rightly deserve.Black currants aren’t just an impressive source of nutrients either. When juiced, they provide a sweet flavor that finishes with a satisfying bit of tartness. All added up, this makes them a no-brainer for inclusion in your juicing regimen. Below you’ll find a suggested recipe for a black currant-centric juice. But the truly great thing about these berries is that they can be incorporated into a wide variety of juice cocktails. Throw some into your freezer to have them available for use in smoothies too!
