Juice Works has launch a new Raya drink to celebrate this festival which is only available from 1st May till 20 June. It's only availbale ONCE a year!
Raya Rush is made with crushed cranberries and watermelon, mixed with a combination of low fat vanilla ice cream sorbet and coconut juice/water, it's the ultimate in SWEET, COLD and REFRESHING to break your fast with.
Why cranberries? They are also known to be a very good source of Vitamin C, dietary fibre and manganese which is good for bone building. It is also rich in vitamin E, which is good to help protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals and vitamin K -- wihch is important for blood clotting and again for building strong bones. It also has copper to help ward off infection and osteoporosis, and pantothenic acid (also known as Vitamin B5) to help convert food into energy and help your body use proteins and fats.
Why watermelon? Made up of about 92% of water, watermelon is a great thirst quencher. It also has significant levels of Vitamin A, B6, and C, and lots of lycopene which is useful in preventing cancer and the hardening of arteries besides antioxidants and amino acids.
Why coconut juice? Dubbed 'Mother Nature's sports drink' by some, this low-calorie, fat-and-cholesterol-free juice is rich in electrolytes that aid in our bodily functions. Its potassium content is higher than four bananas! Potassium is great to regulate one's fluid balance and to help counteract the effects of sodium to maintain a healthy blood pressure. It is also SUPER hydrating.
Last but not least, all three of these fruits are also great in warding off indigestion, due to their high concentration of fibre. It also helps to reduce the occurrence of acid reflux. So if you're worried about over-eating or not eating a balanced meal during the fasting season, DRINK UP today!
What's more, just for this Ramadan season, Juice Works are offering a 'BUY 1 FREE 1 JUNIOR', the Ramadan Special just for the Raya Rush drink! This offer is only valid from May 27-June 27, every 6pm-8pm.
