Blueberry Spritzer

April 14, 2011

Blueberries are a nutritional powerhouse. Recently Tufts University conducted a study of 60 various fruits and vegetables and found that blueberries rated the highest for their antioxidant capabilities. They have been linked to great health benefits and are said to help prevent alzheimer’s, prevent urinary tractions, improve aging and eyesight and more. This refreshing summery beverage is a cinch to make with only 4 ingredients. It’s a hit with adults as well as the kids.

Blueberry Spritzer

It is late at night and not warm out, but I have a nagging craving for this drink. It just looks so darn good.

Love the sound of this. I make a similar version with cherry juice based on the studies about cherry relieving muscle soreness after workouts. It's always nice to have a break from plain water. I love the addition of the whole fruit here.

[...] If you’ve got a juicer at home, this is the perfect opportunity to crack it out and create some delicious festive delights. Adding a touch of cinnamon and a dash of orange will help to make your juices smell and taste fantastic and will add a great aroma and color. Add fresh fruit to enhance the beverage. See my recipe for Blueberry Spritzer here. [...]
