Citrus Punch: Non Alcoholic Recipe
Focused on Health - May 2012
Want to offer a festive alternative to alcohol at your next gathering? Serve one of this punch recipe. It provides plenty of fruity flavor, fizz and cancer-fighting vitamins and nutrients for just a fraction of the calories and sugar found in most alcoholic beverages.
The orange juice and cranberry juice in this recipe offer a healthy dose of cancer-fighting antioxidants like vitamin C. You’ll get the most vitamin C if you use freshly- squeezed orange juice, but refrigerated or frozen concentrate will also do the body good.

1 orange, sliced horizontally into 1/4-inch slices
1 lime, sliced horizontally into 1/4-inch slices
