Remember, if juice is your “thing,” Whole Foods Market has the real deal! That means straight, 100% pure cranberry juice (no sugar, fruit juice concentrate, or high fructose corn syrup added). It’s tart, for sure, but very refreshing when mixed with a splash of sparkling water and a squeeze of fresh orange or lime juice. If “too tart” is not for you, we have naturally sweetened cranberry juice as well.Do you get crazy with cranberries, too? Got a favorite recipe? Let me know!
