Cherry Juice Recipes
In addition to offering some great tart cherry recipes (available in the Tart Cherry Health Report), we also have a complete selection of cherry juice recipes. These recipes use our great tasting, antioxidant-rich concentrate as an ingredient in each. As with all of our other recipes, we have personally made all of the recipes below. They are great for any occasion and will add an extra dimension of taste and flavor profile to any meal.
So let’s get started with eight tasty recipes. I’ve created recipes for each meal of the day and the final two for anytime of the day.
6 oz of plain or vanilla yogurt (The fastest way is to simply use the Yoplait 6 oz containers)
Additional ideas: Toss in some frozen (sliced) or dried cherries or blueberries. As always, if you use dried fruit, soak the fruit in water briefly to soften them up before adding to the cooler temperature yogurt.
Heat pan and place butter, onions and garlic, fry to bring out the flavor. Add the thawed cherries, black pepper, cherry juice concentrate, eggs and let mixture cook until firm.
Prepare pancake recipe as usual, however replace 1/8 cup milk with Fruit Advantage cherry juice concentrate.
Consider adding thawed whole fruit or dried cherries to the recipe, too. If using thawed cherries simply add them to the batter and cook. If you use dried fruit, soak the fruit in water briefly to soften them up before adding to batter.
Add another Cherry Dimension: Cherry Syrup for pancakes or waffles

Acorn Squash Bake
Dried cherries bring out the flavor of this easy-to-prepare side dish.

Cut each acorn squash in half. Remove seeds and fiber. Place cut side down in baking pan with small amount of water in bottom. Bake in a 350-degree oven 45 to 50 minutes or until squash is tender and can be pierced with a fork. (Or place squash cut side down in a microwave-safe container. Add a little water. Microwave on High (100% power) 5 to 7 minutes, turning dish once. Continue cooking, if necessary, until squash is tender.)
Meanwhile, combine butter, cherries, pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon. Heat on top of stove or in microwave oven until butter melts. Fill center of each squash half with one-quarter of the cherry mixture. Mix some of the cooked squash with the cherry filling. Serve immediately. makes 4 servings
