    Whether it is in the form of small cranberries or if it’s in the form of juice, cranberries have more to offer than many people give it credit for. Many know that cranberry juice is a home remedy for urinary tract infections but it is also offering much more than that. Cranberries may be able to help decrease the chances of developing cardiovascular disease, improve the overall health of your mouth, and slow down the progression of a tumor that may be invading the body. With that being said, this recipe calls for both cranberries and cranberry juice. In addition, cranberries carry vitamin C, E, K, fiber, and manganese to name a few.

    Orange juice is another ingredient that you will find in this recipe. You may be wondering how orange juice is going to get along with cranberries once your taste buds get a hold of this drink but somehow and someway, it does.

    Oranges are well known for their dose of vitamin C but they also help in other important ways such as lowering blood pressure, improving skin, decrease the chances of cancer developing, improve heart health, and more. Oranges and orange juice are very beneficial for daily consumption.
