Tropical and juicy, this healthy punch offers vitamins A and C. Jalapeno delivers more than a spicy kick: Anti-inflammatory carotenoids give the pepper its bright red skin.

Cook's Notes

Spike It: Stir 1 ounce blanco or anejo tequila, such as Casa Noble Crystal, into the juice. This organically produced liquor is triple-distilled for a pure agave flavor.
