My kids are juice drinkers. Scold me.
Even my husband is a juice drinker.
Their drink of choice- cranberry grape juice.
I purchase a brand that contains no high fructose corn syrup, but still there are natural sugars.
Not to mention this kind of juice is a bit acidic.
To stretch out the juice, to reduce that natural sugar in each cup, and to reduce the acid, guess what we do?
It is really very simple.
We water it down. By half.
Have you ever noticed when you purchase the juice marketed for toddlers and as a reduced sugar product, if you compare the ingredients of that bottle to that brands non-reduced juice bottle, the only difference is water. They water it down, often times by 50%.
So this is what I do. I have saved a cranberry grape juice container that is 128 oz. When I do my regular grocery shopping, I purchase the 64 oz containers of cranberry grape juice. I pour one 64 oz container into the 128 oz container and then fill the rest with water.
That’s it. Now I have double the juice, it is significantly less acidic and each cup contains half the sugar. Not to mention I have saved money on my grocery bill.
How easy is that?
