It’s the fresh version of several common processed juices. The celery may seem an odd addition, but it helps to counteract both the tartness and sweetness of the fruit, and does a great job of neutralizing everything. Flavor wise it hides in the background, adding only a clean freshness.
This juice is a natural remedy for cold weather illness. Immune boosting apples, celery, cranberries, and grapes are high in vitamin C, which help the immune system to protect the body from cold and flu viruses. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory that helps to settle the stomach and treat cough and congestion.
Plus it tastes, and makes you feel, great! Drink up!
Cran-Apple Grape Juice
1 bag fresh cranberries
2-3 stalks celery
2 apples or pears, or a combination
2 cups grapes, green, red, or a combination
1″ piece fresh ginger
Clean and cut all fruit as necessary. Process through a juicer. Remove any foam that rises to the surface. Drink right away. You can add a few ice cubes if you like. I like to drink it through a straw, as the straw pulls double duty to stir the juice when the solids separate.
