Drink Up! The Benefits of Cherry Juice

20140102-212758.jpg

During my pregnancy I often drank unsweetened tart cherry juice or ate cherries in the evening to ease achy joints & to promote a restful night’s sleep. As a breast feeding mom I’ve started drinking it to help the baby & myself sleep more soundly (worth a try, right moms?!). You don’t need to be pregnant or a nursing mom to reap the benefits of cherries!

      Hi Bernadette! I drink a small glass of it straight up. You could also blend into a smoothie or mix with club soda. I’m not a sour taste person & the tartness actually isn’t that strong.

    Did you drink this throughout pregnancy? Should it be avoided through any trimester?

      Hi Kelly,
      I did drink this throughout my pregnancy. I haven’t heard of any reasons not to be able to enjoy this during each trimester (unless you have gestational diabetes or need to watch your sugar intake). It’s always a good idea to run it by your doctor if you’re unsure of safety. I am not a doctor.
