It can be a challenge finding healthy drinks that are delicious. For example, fruit juice labels on supermarket shelves are often laden with added sugars and artificial additives! Whether you’re cutting down on your family’s soda intake or finding ways to boost immunity, these organic fruit juices from German beverage company WOLF + WALD will tick all your boxes. Oh, and did I mention they’re also perfect as a easy mixer for a fancy cocktail at home? We could definitely use a naughty tipple (or three) in these trying times!
Pure and organic fruit juices
WOLF + WALD’s organically-harvested juices are directly extracted and first-pressed at the source. Each drink is naturally free of gluten and lactose, as well as artificial preservatives, colouring and added sugar. No concentrates are added either, so you’re drinking only the good stuff – 100 percent pure organic fruit juice.
Let’s start with the organic apple juice, which features only premium German apples, extracted for an unadulterated taste. This one’s a personal favourite of mine! Naturally sweet, slightly tart and bursting with pure apple flavour, it’s hands down the best apple juice I’ve ever had.
Coming a close second is the organic tart cherry juice. Each tart cherry that goes into this fruit juice is meticulously handpicked for freshness and flavour. Did you know that tart cherries can help lower blood pressure? They’re also known for their anti-inflammatory properties – score! Recently, I’ve been enjoying playing mixologist; I add the cherry and apple fruit juices together, and top them with sugar-free soda water for a refreshing, guilt-free midday pick-me-up.
If you’re looking for a healthy drink that can boost immunity, the organic aronia juice is a must-have in your kitchen. Aronia berries are touted as the queen of all superfoods; they’re packed with loads of antioxidants. In fact, these berries boast the highest concentration of antioxidants among all fruits.
Here’s another fun fact: blackcurrants contain more vitamin C than oranges and blueberries combined! The WOLF + WALD organic blackcurrant juice is a rich source of vitamin C. So kick-start your system with a shot (or two) before you power through the day!
These healthy drinks feature fruit sourced sustainably from family farms in Germany. The apples, aronia berries, blackcurrants and tart cherries are farmed in Franconia, where the soil conditions are ideal and the alpine air as clean as can be. What’s more, they’re picked only when fully ripe. Using a hose press, they’re then pressed gently and stored in a stainless steel tank to retain all their essential vitamins.
How to enjoy these healthy drinks
Take either the aronia, tart cherry or blackcurrant juices as a dietary supplement. A daily dose of 20ml to 50ml works well, and you can choose to enjoy them plain or mixed with another fruit juice. (I highly recommend the apple.) I’m a sucker for tart flavours so I can enjoy them neat, but you can also add on a natural sweetener if you prefer; honey or agave works well.
Alternatively, incorporate them into your favourite cocktail or mocktail! Have a go at one of WOLF + WALD’s cocktail recipes. I’ve got my eye on “Spill the Tea”, an alcohol-free mix of green tea, tart cherry juice, freshly squeezed lime juice, and honey. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
Time for tea
Love tea? You’ll enjoy the organic and caffeine-free teas from WOLF + WALD. “Herbs + Curiosity” is a herbal blend of hibiscus, lemongrass, spearmint and nettle leaves, while “Berries + Passion” is a fruity blend of cherries, strawberries, apples and elderflower. Each teabag is individually wrapped, so they’re great for sneaking into your bag for your next staycation!
