Light And Refreshing With Minute Maid

Disclaimer: This giveaway is sponsored by Minute Maid.  All opinions written below are 100% my own!

If there's one thing about my family that I take seriously it is their health and nutrition.  I come from a family history of obesity, diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure and heart issues.  The best way to keep these diseases at bay is by eating and drinking healthy.  This can be hard for me because I struggle with the selecting healthier drink options part.  I love fruit juices, but the problem is that most of them are loaded down with added sugars and way too many calories than my body would care to burn off.

Being the juice addict that I am, I was excited when I opened the big box above and discovered that my friends over at Minute Maid had sent me some goodies in the form of fruit juice to try out.  Like me, they are concerned about the lifestyles of their consumers and now offer a variety of drink options to suit everyone's nutritional need.  Included in that variety is their line of Minute Maid Light juice beverages.  They recently added 3 new flavors-Light Raspberry with Tea, Light Peach with Tea and Light Mango Passion- to their lineup as well as a No Pulp Minute Maid Pure Squeezed Light Orange Juice joining their Low Pulp Light Pure Squeezed Orange Juice with calcium and Vitamin D.

I got a chance to try the Light Raspberry with Tea, No Pulp Light Pure Squeezed Orange Juice and picked up some of their Light Pink Lemonade (not pictured below).  Let that all of the juices tasted yummy.  Healthy doesn't have to mean flavorless.

The Light Raspberry with Tea and Light Pink Lemonade both have only 15 calories per 8 fl oz serving which is 85% less calories than other fruit drinks.  The Light Raspberry with Tea was very light and refreshing.  Kind of gave a spa like vibe.  I will definitely be using it as a liquid base for my berry smoothies in the future also.  The Light Pink Lemonade really has some kick to it.  That was perfect for Moo because she's crazy about lemons and love their tangy taste.

I enjoyed the Light Pure Squeezed No Pulp Orange Juice too.  I'm not a pulp drinker at all when it comes to juice!  It has 50% fewer calories and 50% less sugar than most orange juices.  And you get 50 calories for every 8 fl oz you drink.  Pretty easy to work off compared to those orange juices with 100 or more calories. It's also not made from concentrate.  So, you can rest assured that you're getting mostly pure squeezed orange juice and a pin drop of orange juice with tons of artificial flavoring.

Well, I've given the new Minute Maid Light juices my two thumbs up, I would love to give you guys a chance to try it out for yourselves.  So, I'm giving away 3 coupons for a FREE (up to $3.99) One 59 fl oz Minute Maid Pure Squeezed Light Orange Juice Beverage (any variety).  Use the Rafflecopter widget below on how to enter.  You can also check out Minute Maid on Facebook and Twitter to stay up to date on new products releases and coupon savings!

  7. Believe it or not, I have not had one single drop of soda since my sophomore year of high school (an undisclosed amount of years ago...) So when it comes to Minute Maid I tend to be all about the OJ. Morning, evening and night. I love their orange juice and Raspberry Lemonade!
