Sugarcane Cooler

July 11, 2011



Los Cubanos call it guarapo, Los Mexicanos call it jugo de caña...it's sugarcane juice. Blend it with a few cherry tomatoes and ice...we know this sounds like a strange pairing, but it's incredible. And kids will go crazy for it, like it's a 7-11 strawberry slushee. And since it's an unrefined sugar, green, alkalizing, low-glycemic, and full of phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium in it's raw form, it's all good—even if you're a diabetic.

Tip: buy the sugarcane juice fresh and freeze it into ready-to-use ice cubes for later use. Or—a hint from our favorite L.A.-based Raw Cane juicers: keep the cane in the fridge for 3+ weeks with a balloon instead of a cap (so you can release the pressure buildup as needed) and you get sparkling, probiotic, sugarcane kombucha—good for the gut!
