The juice of cherries provide anti-bacterial, antioxidant and anti-cancer benefits
Health Benefits of Cherries
Cherries are high in ellagic acid and potent anti-cancer agent, along with vitamins C and A, biotin and potassium. Black cherry juice protects against tooth decay.They have proven to be very useful for gout conditions, as it acts to help neutralize and expel uric acid from the body.
Cherries taste great in blended juices. Although time consuming to pit them, its strong, sweet flavor makes it worth it. Chop them in half and de-stem. Do not peel and do not juice the seeds or stems. If you really like cherry juice, you could invest in a mechanical cherry de-stoner.
Depending on the type of cherry, color ranges from red to dark purple.
Because you can't juice much of this since it takes forever (!) I think it goes great with apple juice, pineapple, cantelope, and even carrot. You'd be suprised how many things cherries pair well with.
One pound, about two cups of cherries, yields about 2/3 cup (150 mL)
