The older I get, the more I notice that I am more sensitive to certain foods. Things that I used to eat without any problems now often cause stomach upset, indigestion, heartburn and more. It’s super frustrating and makes me really sad when I can’t enjoy my favorite food and drinks without being uncomfortable. Which is why I was super excited to learn that Simply Orange has a brand new low acid orange juice, perfect for those of us who may be sensitive to acid.
Simply Orange Low Acid is brand new. It has all of the benefits, taste and flavor of your favorite Simply Orange juice but with reduced acid for a smooth, mild taste. It’s perfect for my whole family as it is 100% juice and is not concentrated or frozen. It is not sweetened and has no preservatives, no colors and no artificial flavors – it’s just simply great tasting juice.
Simply Orange Low Acid is a good source of calcium and is the next best thing to fresh squeezed orange juice. Only with less acid so it goes down easier and smoother! Simply Orange Low Acid tastes great by itself but it’s also fun to get a little bit creative with it. My new favorite thing to do is to combine citrus and mint so I thought Simply Orange Low Acid would be the perfect drink to add a touch of mint.
I came up with a simple but refreshing way to compliment the already delicious flavor of Simply Orange Low Acid juice with some sparkling water and just a touch of mint essential oil. Make sure that the essential oil you choose is safe for ingestion, not all of them are. You can always use fresh mint if you prefer.
- 2 cups Simply Orange Low Acid
- 2 cups unsweetened sparkling water
- 1 drop peppermint essential oil (make sure the oil you choose is safe for ingestion)
- Pour orange juice into a carafe. Slowly pour sparkling water into orange juice. Add peppermint oil and stir slowly to combine.
- Serve garnished with a slice of orange.
As I mentioned, Simply Orange Low Acid tastes perfect on its own, what’s great about this recipe is that it adds a bit of sparkle to the juice without changing the flavor and the mint is a refreshing accent.
This is a great drink to serve at a family brunch! You can have one carafe filled with Simply Orange Low Acid and one carafe filled with Simply Orange Juice Mint Sparkler and let your guests choose which one they prefer. Garnish the sparkler with some mint leaves to make it stand out!
I love starting my day with a delicious glass of Simply Orange Low Acid, do you enjoy drinking orange juice?
