Cool Down with a Refreshing Glass of Juice from the R.W. Knudsen Family® Just Juice Line (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.

Now that the warmer weather is here, families need to make a point to stay hydrated, especially when they are spending time outdoors.  Kids, especially, need to make sure that they are drinking enough liquids, as they are the ones running around more in the hot summer sun, and not usually wanting to take breaks.  If you have kids who don't like to drink water, or you are one to not want to offer up sugary fruit juices to them, why not pour them a glass of tasty juice from the R.W. Knudsen Family® Just Juice line?

Product Overview

R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice varieties are "single-fruit, unsweetened, 100 percent juices are undiluted to provide the maximum taste associated with each respective fruit. "  I first became aware of this juice brand back when we had Savannah and the pediatrician told us to pick up pear juice when she was having tummy trouble.  And, since then, whenever I am looking to restock our juice supply, I look for R.W. Knudsen Family juices.  Everyone in the family likes the juice varieties available, and as a parent, I love knowing that I am giving the girls all-natural juices.

Backed by the brand’s over 50-year commitment to providing all-natural products without compromising on taste, Just Juice is available in the following varieties:

·         NEW Just Aronia Berry®
·         Just Black Cherry®
·         Just Black Currant®
·         Just Blueberry®Just Cranberry®
·         Just Pomegranate®
·         Just Tart Cherry®
·         Organic Just Concord®
·         Organic Just Cranberry®
·         Organic Just Pomegranate®
·         Organic Just Tart Cherry®

I was recently sent samples of R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice in their Just Tart Cherry and Just Cranberry flavors. Out of the juices from this trusted brand, these are two my family hadn't tried yet, but was eager to help me review. :-) 

When it comes to sampling juices, the girls are always ready and able to help me review, as I let them drink from little cups, which they love, before asking which flavor they liked better, or how each tasted. This taste testing was no different. Savannah and Bella took their spots at the dining room table and waited for the juices to be poured.

First up was R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice Cranberry. My girls love snacking on dried cranberries, so I was hoping that they would enjoy this juice. Bella was a fan, while Savannah not so much. But, they both loved the R.W. Knudsen Family's Just Tart Cherry juice, and asked for refills. While they couldn't really describe the flavor profiles for me, they both agreed that the Just Tart Cherry juice was fruity and delicious. :-)

The girls quickly drank up the Just Tart Cherry juice sample we were sent, and have since asked me to get more. :-) I will definitely be adding this juice from R.W. Knudsen Family to my shopping list, as I was also a fan. My husband and I, along with Bella just finished off the Just Cranberry juice last night at dinner. I loved how refreshing and delicous this juice is, and how it wasn't sugary sweet like other juices we have tried in the past.

These juices are not just for pouring and enjoying.  Nope!  Why not try a quick and easy recipe like the following smoothie recipe.  We just made this smoothie last night with the R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice Pomerganate (which I have been purchasing for a few months now and LOVE) and R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice Cranberry, and it was so tasty.  Everyone kept coming back for a refill, until there was none left. I have marked this recipe as a "YES" and will definitely be making again, especially on those upcoming hot summer nights here in CT.  What a refreshing way to cool day, while also enjoying R.W. Knudsen Family Just Juice -- kids and adults will love this recipe, so why not give it a try today...

  1. I left a comment here yesterday and I see it is not showing up? I used that comment for all of the giveaways that I entered yesterday.

    I would love to try this smoothie and I love juice that is 100 percent juice.
