Summer is finally here. Hooray!
Cranberries are a familiar staple in the fall and winter, but you’d be surprised at how versatile this superfood can be in your summer menu.
Since I’m always looking for delicious, simple summer recipes that are packed with nutrients, I partnered with The Cranberry Institute to help you get creative with a bottle of cranberry juice cocktail. Plus, I have a “cranberry inspired” prize pack that includes a signed copy of Body Kindness!
How Can You Use an Entire Bottle of Cranberry Juice Cocktail?
Turns out, it’s easy! From thirst-quenching spritzers to grilling marinades and even yummy frozen treats like homemade cranberry kefir pops, watch as I share my ideas for delicious and easy ways to use cranberry juice cocktail in your everyday menu.
Also, Did You Know About the Health Benefits of Cranberry Juice Cocktail?
It’s encouraged to drink at least 8oz of cranberry juice cocktail a day to help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). That same glass of cranberry juice is loaded with antioxidants and bioactive compounds that may help maintain cardiovascular health as well.
Mmmm. I love “sprucing up” my water with half cranberry juice cocktail and half H2O and for a sparkly pink drink, I’ll use seltzer water and cranberry juice cocktail.
Make kefir pops by combining plain kefir with cranberry juice cocktail and freezing into popsicle molds.
Cranberry juice cocktail is also a delicious base for meat marinades.
