Raspberry Delight with Antioxidants

Summary

raspberriesThis fruit juice is simply sweet and fruity, and will help to keep you hydrated. Children, adults, beginner juicerheads, and experienced juicerheads can all enjoy this easily palatable juice. The color is a pretty deep red, so children will be more likely to give it a try. This can be helpful when trying to sneak extra vegetables into a child’s diet. Beware, it is high in natural sugars, so diabetics and those with sugar sensitivities may want to dilute this juice. The raspberries provide a bit of that sugar, but raspberries are also a major source of antioxidants and will deliver more than half of your daily vitamin C requirement. Raspberries are also a good source of potassium, magnesium, and iron.Cucumbers are juicy, which helps to dilute some of the sweetness and increase the quantity of juice that is obtained. The skins of the cucumbers should always be left on when juicing, as the skins contain vitamin A. Carrots provide a mega dose of vitamin A, and a healthy dose of vitamin C and potassium to boot. The pear provides the general sweetness of the drink, while infusing vitamin B-6 into the mix. This recipe will make one glass of juice, approximately 16-20 ounces. With the antioxidants, hydrating qualities, and electrolytes, this juice can help you and your family to stay flu-free and hydrated through the dry and treacherous winter months.
