Cherry Active Drinks

As you know I often get sent things to try.  I like this part of food blogging as I am always open to trying out new things.  I was recently sent a variety of tconcentrated drinks from Cherry Active.

Cherry Active Concentrate is made from 100% natural Montmorency cherry juice.  Each 210ml bottle is the concentrated juice of over 650 Montmorency cherries and free from preservatives. A 210ml bottle makes two litres of diluted juice (mix 30ml concentrate into half a pint of fresh water). Alternatively, add to natural yoghurt, smoothies or as a mixer.

BeetActive concentrate is 100% concentrated beetroot juice, with no added preservatives. Sweet tasting, premium quality concentrated beetroot juice. Each 210ml bottle typically made from concentrated juice of over 30 beetroot. A 210ml bottle makes two litres of diluted juice (mix 30ml concentrate into half a pint of fresh water). Alternatively, drizzle neat over a salad or mix with balsamic vinegar and olive oil for a delicious beetroot salad dressing.

Blueberry Active concentrate is 100% concentrated blueberry juice with no added preservatives. Glorious tasting, premium quality concentrated blueberry juice. Each 210ml bottle typically made from the concentrated juice of over 1250 blueberries. A 210ml bottle makes two litres of diluted juice (mix 30ml concentrate into half a pint of fresh water). Alternatively, add to natural yoghurt, smoothies or as a mixer. 

I was excited to be able to try these because they are all natural and filled with vitamins and anti-oxidants.   I like to think that I can drink something which is healthy and will do me good, rather than drinking soda drinks and the like.  You can also make it fizzy by adding sparkling water to it instead of regular water. With some icecubes, I quite enjoyed them this way.  I loved also that they were not overly sweet and natural tasting.  This was a real bonus for me.   I've been using the Beet Active concentrate in salad dressings with great success. I just mix with a bit of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and seasoning.  It has a lovely colour and the flavour is superb!  (But then again I adore Beetroot!)  Yesterday the missionaries were treated to the Blueberry one and they drank the whole jug.  I also had a jug of lemon lime fizzy drink on the table and the blueberry one was gone first, which speaks for itself!

Once again I give these drinks two thumbs up for flavour, convenience, their purity, health benefits and lack of preservatives. Do hop on over to their page to find out more!

Many thanks!

  1. I will look out for these. I wasn't liking the sound of the beetroot one, even though I love beetroot, but the salad dressing sounds delicious.

  2. Neat, I do love cherries and blueberries. Can't say that I love beets though. Not something I use.
