Warnge Juice, Please

Two weeks ago, my son was saying “warnge” juice.  Now, he articulates “orange” juice perfectly.  I did a double take when he asked for it yesterday.

Not only has my almost two-and-a-half-year-old improved his pronunciation of several words, but he’s developed a tongue-in-cheek sense of humor.  I kid you not.

For example, tonight’s conversation…

“Calvin, how old are you?”

With a wide grin, “Two!”

“How old is Mommy?”

“Old!”

“What?  Where did you learn that?”

Belly laughs precede “Old! old!”

Okay, back to orange juice…

That’s the only juice we buy.  We don’t like juices that add extra sugar (definitely not something the body needs).  But, I like something other than water to add to smoothies (something I make almost daily for our family).

So…orange juice it is.

Here’s my latest favorite smoothie recipe:

Stress Relief Supreme Smoothie – rich in antioxidants and full of mouth-bursting flavor

Combine ingredients and purée in a high speed blender until smooth. Serve and enjoy your antioxidant refreshment!

Check out Tropicana’s Juicy Rewards where you can gain points from purchasing orange juice, grapefruit juice, and others to use toward fun family events, discounts on purchases, or you can donate your points to work with Cool Earth to save the rain forests.

I just used 9 points to get a 30% off coupon toward a purchase at Coleman’s for a sleeping bag for Calvin for our upcoming spring camping adventures.  Then, I donated 3 more points toward the Rain Forest.

YOUR TURN: How will you use your Tropicana Juicy Rewards points?

Note: I wrote this review while participating in the Tropicana Juicy Insiders Ambassador program by Mom Central on behalf of Tropicana. I received 12 free Juicy Rewards points and a $50 Visa gift card to use in redemption of the points and to facilitate my review.  Read my full disclosure policy.

I’m a Juicy Insider

Fresh squeezed orange juice at the peak of the season in winter is crisp and sweet with slightly tangy undertones.  Have you ever had fresh squeezed orange juice from sugar red navel oranges or honeybells?  It is a delight for the taste buds that every citrus lover must experience at least once.

Some of you may know that I lived in Florida for seven years.  Florida’s farmer’s markets share fresh squeezed orange juice with customers on a weekly basis.  Divine!

Although fresh-squeezed orange juice is harder to find outside of Florida (and California), Tropicana does a pretty good job to bring fresh flavors from the orange groves to the shelves of the local grocers.  It’s one of our household staples for creating rich and fruity smoothies, preventing apple wedges from oxidizing, and marinating chicken.

Besides creating great OJ, Tropicana has an exciting new rewards program–there’s over 20,000 ways to save money on running shoes, golf, massage therapy, and admission to the zoo, and even admission to Charlottesville’s own Ashlawn-Highland.  I’m excited to be a Juicy Insider in this new program!

One carton of Tropicana saves you $15.  Do the math, and three cartons save you $45.  That’s a month’s worth of family activities in savings!

If you’re more eco-savvy than day-trip happy, you can donate your points toward Rainforest Rescue.  For every 3 points you donate, 100 square feet of Rainforest are rescued.

According to the Tropicana Juicy Rewards website, 4,456,566 square feet of rainforest were saved through the Tropicana Juicy Rewards Program (and partnership with Cool Earth) to date.

Join the Juicy Rewards Program and start saving today.  It’s easy and free to sign-up.  Pssst.  Here’s a little secret.  Use the following code immediately after registering to receive 1 free point right from the start!   MOMCE-NTRAL*

This weekend, I’m using 1 point to get two for one admission into the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens with Calvin’s grandparents.  What will you do with your points?
