|Welch's Grape Juice|
Mommies all trooped to the Garden Area of the Ayala the 30th Mall last weekend to celebrate Welch’s relaunch in an afternoon of nutrition information and parenting talks. Our well-loved Welch’s Grape juice organized this event primarily to educate parents, particularly moms to choose what’s good for their family.

The afternoon was spent with fun-filled activities for both kids and adults. Lucky attendees were able to bring home some awesome Welch’s products during the raffle draws. One Mom was lucky enough to walked away with a month’s supply of Welch’s products for her and her family to consume. But of course, nobody went home empty handed as Welch’s has given each and every Mom attendee a loot bag with their favorite Welch’s products.

During the said event, chefs from the Center for Culinary Arts also had a short demonstration on incorporating Welch’s products in various ways and recipes for the entire family to enjoy. Here, Purple Plum Fairy will share with you some of the recipes I had learned during the said Welch’s event:
|Grape Berry Crunch Muffins|
GRAPE BERRY CRUNCH MUFFINS
½ cup of low fat granola, finely crushed
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/1 tsps baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda

1 pc large egg
¼ cup canola oil
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp lemon zest, grated
1 ½ cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1. Pre-heat the oven over 400 degrees Farenheit. Coat 12 2 ½ inch muffin pan cups with cooking spray.
2. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients except sugar.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk other ingredients except blueberries until blended. Add the flour mixture and fold in the blueberries.
4. Fill the prepared muffin cups about two thirds full with batter. Sprinkle crushed granola and bake in oven.
5. Cool muffin in wire rack. Serve warm or in room temperature.

GRAPE BANANA SMOOTHIE
1 pc small banana, peeled and sliced
1 cup seedless red grapes, washed and stems removed
1 cup cabot vanilla bean lowfat greek-style yoghurt
1 cup Welch’s 100% Grape Juice
1 pinch ground cinnamon
1. Place banana and grapes in freezer until firmly frozen (in plastic bag if not using soon).
2. Combine frozen fruits, yoghurt, grape juice and cinnamon in blender and blend until smooth. Divide between 2 large glasses and enjoy cold.
What I particularly liked about Welch’s Grape Juice is that it’s made from 100% grape juice with no sugar added. The other juices available in the market today may have a lot of sugar which may result to early onset of diabetes for children. With Welch’s you can be assured that the sugar content comes from the real fruit itself. What’s more, Welch’s are also using Concord grapes which according to nutritionists, can help support a healthy heart by contributing to healthy blood vessels and healthy blood circulation.
In fact, a study conducted on nearly 20 years found out that regularly drinking of 100% grape juice made with Concord grapes will become a great help in having a healthy blood circulation, thus preventing heart attacks and certain cancers.
So, I’m now sharing the good news with you that Welch’s Grape Juice is made from 100% grape juice made from Concord grapes. It promotes a healthy heart and has no sugar added, no cholesterol and no preservatives.
From this day on, I will make it a habit to drink Welch’s Grape Juice as part of our family’s daily meals.
