One day, I was shopping in the grocery store and discovered Aronia berries in the freezer section of the store. I love trying new fruits and vegetables, so I took a bag home with me. Unlike some other berries, I was pleasantly surprised by the taste. Aronia berries are semi-sweet, similar to a wine grape or a tart cherry.
Aronia berries should be included in your diet because of their high levels of antioxidants. In fact, they are more nutritious than the trendy elderberry that we typically consume during the fall and winter months as they are rich in folate, iron, and vitamins A, and E. They can also help improve function of the circulatory, respiratory and digestive systems, and can help protect the liver from chemical damage.
I’m a huge fan of Garden of Flavor. So, when I found out they were releasing an Aronia Berry Blackberry Energy Elixir, I just had to share it with you! This is one of my new favorite ways to include these berries in my diet.
Garden of Flavor’s Aronia berries are grown on a small, sustainable, certified organic family farm in Wisconsin. Their Founder, Lisa Reed, selected this farm because of the purity of the crop. She personally checks each harvest.
One of the main reasons why I love Garden of Flavor’s formula is because they puree the entire Aronia berry. The skins and seed contain the most beneficial and healthful part of the berry which is full of vitamin C, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral benefits. This Elixir also contains one billion deliverable probiotic cultures to help keep your gut healthy. This combination makes it the perfect energizing cold cocktail! Sip as is, or add a splash to your favorite smoothie recipe.
