Fresh or dried cranberries contain bioflavonoids which are thought to help prevent cancer and protect the eyesight and are used as a cleanse for the bladder and help to prevent bladder infections-cranberries also contain fiber. Lemons are low cal, an excellent source of Vitamin C, and act as a sprinkle for many salads, for fish, plus they are a great garnish for fish products and salads, as well as many beverages. Oranges we all know are jam packed with Vitamin C, contain fiber, and are a good source of beta carotene, folate, thiamine and potassium. Oranges are used all year round as a favorite to most children and adults alike.
Okay-lets get to the good stuff-the beverage……
