Expert Tips

Try other fruit combinations, such as lemon-raspberry and orange-cranberry. Substitute lemon peel and juice for the orange peel and juice, and fresh or frozen raspberries or cranberries for the blueberries.

Blueberries are a low-fat food and a good source of fiber and vitamin C. The intense color of the blueberry comes from anthocyanins, potent antioxidants.
