Just the mention of a glass of freshly squeezed juice is enough to make our taste buds do the happy dance. Colourful and overflowing with flavour, it brings to mind tropical islands and holidays.
While we could all do with a beach escape to recharge our batteries, fresh fruit juice can definitely contribute to our wellbeing if had as part of a well-balance diet. Brimming with goodness, freshly squeezed juice is a great source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, ranging from vitamin C to zinc depending on the fruit used.
Fruit juice also contains fructose, the type of sugar we find in fruit, making it a source of energy. While the energy you get from it is better than chomping down on a high-sugar processed food, one glass still contains quite a bit of fructose, so remember to take that into account when considering your daily food intake and try diluting your juice with water.
Top up on a freshly squeezed apple or orange juice at KAUAI today, or try their slightly less sweet carrot juice which you can have just as is, or blended with either apple juice or celery, cucumber, beetroot, ginger, orange and apple.
