Fascinating Facts About Some Fun Food

Posted: 12/18/2013

Eating fruit every day can be a delicious way to increase your happiness
Eating fruit every day can be a delicious way to increase your happiness.

(NAPSI)--The next time you take a bite of a nice fresh fruit or a refreshing sip of fruit juice, you might care to contemplate these fun facts:

• Pomegranates get their name from two Latin terms: “pomum,” meaning “apple,” and “granatus,” which means “seeded.”

• Cranberries don’t actually grow in water, as many people think, but rather in sandy bogs and marshes. The cranberry beds are flooded for wet harvesting when the berries ripen.

• Cherries are part of the Rosaceae family, which includes almonds, peaches, apricots and plums. Black cherry (Prunus serotina) trees are deciduous and native to eastern North America, and the cherries have a tart taste compared to other, sweet varieties.

• The R.W. Knudsen Family® has produced quality, all-natural juice products since 1961. Its offerings include more than 125 types of natural and organic fruit and vegetable juices, carbonated beverages, and specialty items such as Recharge® all-natural sports drinks. These are all naturally made, without artificial flavors or preservatives, and never contain added sugar.

• Raise a glass to the goodness of fruit with this recipe:

Black Forest Cherry Smoothie

1/4 cup frozen banana in chunks

1/2 teaspoon ground flaxseed

1/2 cup frozen black cherries

1 cup R.W. Knudsen Family Just Black Cherry™ Juice

2/3 cup chocolate-flavored soy milk

1/4 cup vanilla yogurt

Black cherries and mint leaves for garnish

Place first six ingredients in blender container. Blend on high speed 1 minute until smooth. Pour into glasses. Garnish with cherries and mint leaves. Serve immediately.

Knudsen Family website, The Orchard provides users with ways to celebrate these popular fruits through fun, delicious content and shareable recipes, demonstrating how the simplicity of fruit delivers quality every time.
