I think Healthy Balance juice drinks might be a good candidate for that compromise. I think this because it is sweetened with Splenda no-calorie sweetener instead of sugar, which means Healthy Balance contains 75% less sugar, carbs, and calories than juices that are not considered better-for-you. I also like that each 8oz serving gives a member of my family 100% of the vitamin C they need for the whole day. Healthy Balance juice drinks are gluten-free and contain no preservatives or artificial flavors.
So now the big question is whether the taste pleased my family. Out of the 12 flavors of Healthy Balance juice drinks, we tried the Pomegranate Blueberry Acai Juice Blend. I was nervous about the pomegranate because it can be so tart, even more than cranberries. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. This juice blend was extremely easy to drink. In fact, it tasted like punch. I had no problems convincing my family to drink this at all.
