My parents were never big juice drinkers. I fondly remember spending the night at my grandparents' and enjoying small cups of seasonal sweet juice with our morning meal. Now as an adult, I'm more like my parents. I don't drink much juice but as I've come to understand it — I'm sort of the only one. I don't hold any disdain for fruit juice by any means. I use it all the time in marinades, dressings, and baked goods. Heck, I even whipped up some of this roasted vanilla orange juice
last year. But when it comes to a tall glass for breakfast, I've just never been that into it. Normally I would blame such a thing on my Midwestern upbringing where we don't have a plethora of fruit trees (except apple) in every backyard. I do know plenty of Midwesterners that like juice just fine, however.
Are you a juice drinker? Is it your morning beverage or an afternoon pick me up? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
