Disclosure: The Cranberry Institute has sent me research updates, cranberry tips, some seasonal recipes as well as cranberry juice cocktail and a Flamen Fast Release Ice Cube Tray. In exchange, I’m  sharing  some of this information with you.  I was not financially compensated to write this post. Opinions are my own.

This is actually my latest beverage related obsession, and it began with a nifty ice cube tray that makes four  2-inch ice balls. Do they look like gigantic cranberries, or what !?!???..Cranberry Ice CubesEach ice cube ball has  about 1/4 cup of juice,  providing approximatley  30 calories.  I love the   twist of cranberry flavor they add to my water,  and the health benefits of proanthocyanidins PACs.image008

Aside from adding to my  plan water, here are some ways I like to rehydrate, refresh and relax with the power of cranberry:

cranberry juice ice balls + pomegranate berry flavored sparkling water

cranberry juice balls + tangerine lime flavored sparkling water

cranberry juice balls + light lemonaderehydrate with the cranberry juice pairings

Whether you’re rehydrating from exercise, or kickin’ back on the porch these cranberry ice cubes will add a delicious twist to your refreshment. IMG_4558
