Sour-Cherry-Lime-Juice-perchancetocook-4This is my summer-time, guilty pleasure juice. It tastes like a sour patch kid, or what I imagine a healthy sour patch kid should taste like. If you love sour candy, pineapples, cherries, and limes then this will really be an enjoyable vitamin-full treat for you.

I make this drink more often in the summer during cherry season. Since cherries were on sale at my local grocery store, I bought 2 bags and have been enjoying this Sour Cherry-Lime Juice quite often.

Sour-Cherry-Lime-Juice-perchancetocook-1This juice wraps up my “favorite juices” series. If you have been following my blog, you will have seen that I have been periodically posting my five favorite juice recipes. I am a huge proponent of juicing, as it has been an important part of my life for the last few years. Ever since I read The Juiceman’s Power of Juicing, actually.

Since it has been so long, I experiment less and stick to my favorites. I normally alternate between those five favorites regularly. I figured that if those five juice recipes could keep me happy for years, then they must be too good to not share them!

Sour-Cherry-Lime-Juice-perchancetocookThis juice is different than my previous four favorites in that there are no veggies here! Nothing but sweet citrusy goodness. And even though I love the other four juices, as I previously said, this Sour Cherry-Lime juice is my guilty pleasure. It always makes me feel better and it seriously helps with my sweet tooth cravings. If you have a bag full of cherries in your fridge, I highly recommend you try this!

Sour-Cherry-Lime-Juice-perchancetocook-2I’m kind of sad that all five of my favorite juices are all posted now. That doesn’t mean I won’t post more juice recipes though. I always enjoy experimenting with food creations and know that there are so many more to discover. I just wanted to share the five juices that have been consistently the best for me. Enjoy!

Here is a quick recap of my five favorite juices:

  1. Fennel Immune Booster
  2. Strawberry Beet Detox Juice
  3. Tropical Kale Carrot Juice
  4. Refreshing Tomato Carrot Juice
  5. Sour Cherry-Lime Juice

* Note: I’ve been asked what type of juicer I use. I’ve actually used the same Waring Pro Juicer for years! I love it because not only is it affordable, it is more importantly easy to clean and durable, which results in juicing more often and for a longer amount of time.
