*Chef's Notes: Fruit nectars are available in the canned juice area of most grocery stores. They are fruit beverages that have high levels of both fruit juice and pulp and carry a more concentrated fruit flavor.

 

Each serving provides:  An excellent source of vitamin C, and a good source of vitamin A, potassium and fiber.
