Organic Orange Strawberry Banana Juice
March 19, 2012 - Fearlessly Archived - Still a fun read, price & availability may have changed.
Some believe the world’s most popular berry is the strawberry. Not so. Strawberries aren’t true berries; they are “accessory fruits.” To confuse matters even more, the world’s most popular “true” berry is very uncommonly associated with the category – it’s a banana. Fruit terminology technicalities aside, strawberries and bananas make beautiful bedfellows with the world’s most popular citrus fruit – the orange (which is actually a modified berry called a hesperidium).
We’ve brought together these insanely popular whatever-kind-they-are fruits to create a juice blend that tastes like the sunrise. We combine organic banana and organic strawberry purées with fresh organic orange juice. Organic apple, pineapple and white grape juices are added to achieve tangy-sweet balance that illuminates the palate. Robust and refreshing, it’s perfect chilled and served alongside your bowl of Crisp Rice Cereal. It also makes a great blending base for smoothies – we like it with blueberries and yogurt. And it’s high in vitamin C and a good source of potassium – bonus. Trader Joe’s Fresh Organic Orange Strawberry Banana Juice ranks up there in popularity with its primary fruit components, especially at our price of $3.69 for each 64 ounce carton.
Other unexpected botanical berries include: avocados, pumpkins, grapes, tomatoes and watermelons.
