Silk Heart Health with Plant Sterols

This brand-new vanilla soymilk is hitting store shelves this month. It's slightly less sweet than the regular Silk Vanilla Soymilk with just 7g of sugar per cup -- perfect for adding a hint of vanilla to bran cereal or coffee. What really sets this apart though, is that Silk has added plant sterols, a naturally occurring compound found in some nuts, fruits, and vegetables, that may help to lower cholesterol. You need to consume at least 0.8g of sterols per day to see the benefits; a cup of Silk Heart Health delivers .65g.

Zola Superfood Smoothie

Zola, the maker of Acai berry juice drinks, has branched out and is now making smoothies with fruits from the Amazon. My particular favorite is the Superfood Smoothie. Don't let the green color throw you off: This blend of Cupuacu (ku-pu-ah-su), Graviola, and Acai with a mixture of greens (like Spirulina), thrown in, is just the right mix of tart and sweet. The smoothies are made with nothing but juice and are packed with vitamins.

Vita Coco with Acai & Pomegranate

Coconut water can be something of an acquired taste, but Vita Coco gives it broader appeal with this blend of acai and pomegranate. You still get all the benefits of the electrolyte-packed coconut water (twice the potassium found in a banana), but thanks to the fruit, it tastes a bit more juice-like, while still managing to be super refreshing.

Totally Organica Lemon/Lime

This lightly carbonated water tastes like a lemon and a lime were freshly squeezed into the bottle. It's just right for those times you're craving something a bit more flavorful than water, but don't want the extra calories of a juice or iced tea. There are eight flavors in all -- drink them plain or use them as mixers in your favorite cocktails.

Honeydrop Apples & Honey

A delicious blend of 100 percent apple juice mixed with water and lightly sweetened with honey. Completely organic with no added sugar, it's perfect for those who find juice a bit too sweet. Plus, honey is packed with antioxidants, which research shows may help soothe sore throats and coughs as well as protect against diabetes and high blood pressure.
