I love Cranberry Juice! and I think this looks like a winner. I appreciate that you say no to splenda and it’s ilk. But I don’t think we can even get unsweetened this recipe in oz. At christmas we can get the frozen berries though. & My mum is a nurse and they use cranberry tablets to treat people who have spinal injuries to prevent UTI’s she said that the juice avalible in OZ don’t have enough of the necessary chemical from the cranberry’s to make them effective. Today, we would like to let you know how to make a Cranberry juice for your family! Let’s do it!
I. Ingredients preparation
- 1/4 cup pure, unsweetened cranberry juice
- 3/4 cup club soda or sparkling mineral water
- 10-15 drops (about 1/8 teaspoon) of liquid stevia extract (amount may depend on your specific brand of stevia)
II. Method making this recipes
Stir the stevia into the cranberry juice. Add the club soda.
Note: This cranberry cooler uses the herb stevia as its sweetener. Stevia is a South American herb that has been used for hundreds of years as a sweetener. Since the 70s, Japan has used stevia extensively for sweetening food products. It’s available in many forms – the dried herb, a liquid extract, and a powder.
You can find stevia at Whole Foods and most health food stores in the herbal supplements section. Stevia has zero carbs. This little recipe calls for 1 part pure cranberry juice to 3 parts soda water.
An 8-oz glass of the cooler would have a total of 4 grams of carbs (for those of you that count these things). The taste? Refreshing and satisfying, but honestly, not quite as good as sugar. Probably very similar to if you had used splenda in place of sugar. Hope you success with Cranberry juice! Thank you!
