Published: Oct. 6, 2021 at 9:30 AM EDT

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Juice Products Association (JPA) and its consumer platform, Sip Smarter, are ready to welcome the fall season with a renewed focus on 100% fruit juice, its many health benefits, and the delicious and nutritious recipes that are perfect for the season.  One-hundred percent fruit juice is a healthy, nutrient-dense beverage with similar vitamins and minerals, such as ‎vitamin C, folate and potassium and natural plant compounds like polyphenols and carotenoids as the ‎fruit it is squeezed from‎. Plus, according to the Dietary Guidelines for Americans Further, one cup of fruit juice is equivalent to one cup of ‎fruit, and along with water and low-fat milk, should be a primary beverage consumed by adults and ‎children. ‎Given this, along with the fact that more than 80% of all Americans do not get their recommended amount of fruit‎, Sip Smarter is offering up a handful of easy, delicious, and healthy recipes that are perfect to get into the spirit of autumn.

Spiced Apple Poke Cake 
This Spiced Apple Poke Cake from Regan Jones, RDN, and host of the podcast This Unmillenial Life combines the flavors of fall with the health benefits of 100% Apple Juice. The majority of apple juice is fortified with vitamin C, which is crucial for the growth and repair of cells. It also helps heal wounds, builds strong teeth, skin, bones and cartilage and is critical to a healthy immune system.

Pomegranate Vegetable Soup with Lentils 
Finally, nothing says fall quite like a warm bowl of soup, and this vegetarian option from Diane Boyd, Registered Dietitian, and winner of the Creative New Beginnings recipe contest, is the perfect option to go with this season. Breaking away from the fall-favorite apple juice, this recipe calls for 100% pomegranate juice, along with plenty of other healthy ingredients, like lentils, carrots, and spinach. Pomegranate juice not only tastes great for fall, but is also a good source of potassium, which helps manage fluid balance, blood pressure, and nerve and muscle function. Pomegranate juice also contains natural antioxidants such as anthocyanins, which are known to support DNA and cell integrity.
