Cranberry Apple JuiceAdding apples is the secret to sweetening this up.

Cranberries are in season now and are a superstar fruit, kind of like a superfood.

Here’s the thing though, there is a world of difference between fresh cranberries and especially fresh cranberry juice and the canned crap you get from the supermarket.

You  can clearly taste the difference. Check out Juice Daddy’s cranberry apple juice, then pick up a bag of fresh cranberries at your local store and get creative. Add them to smoothies, salads, side dishes and more.
