Yakima, WA. – March 2nd, 2015 – Looking for a creative way to freshen up your daily dose of apples? Just drink it! Liquefying apples can make for a yummy – as well as healthy – core ingredient for a wide array of beverages.
“Turning fruits and veggies into beverages is one of the top food trends for 2015, according to Allrecipes,” said Lindsay Ehlis with Borton & Sons, Inc. “Apples naturally sweeten up any veggie drink and add delightful flavor to traditional smoothies, cocktails and mocktail recipes you already enjoy—or new ideas we are happy to share.”
“Not to mention, 8 oz. of liquid apples count as one of your USDA daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables,” Ehlis added. “So, whether you’re juicing a whole apple, blending in slices, or pouring 100% apple juice or cider, you can be happy knowing that by drinking your apples you’re supporting your health, as well as your taste buds.”
From “morning to nightcap,” Borton & Sons, Inc. is offering five ideas for blending, pouring or juicing apples.
