The Healthiest Juices

What Makes a Winner
Companies submitted 69 new juices to FITNESS. Our experts -- Anar Allidina, RD, a dietitian in private practice in Toronto; Keri Gans, RD, the author of The Small Change Diet; and Stephanie Middleberg, RD, the founder of Middleberg Nutrition in New York City -- helped us determine which ones should move on to the next round. Those finalists were sampled and voted on by FITNESS staffers.

POM Coconut

Looking for a sports drink that tastes like "a tropical vacation in a bottle"? Then this mix of coconut water and pomegranate juice is for you. It's packed with potassium, which becomes depleted when you work out. (90 calories)

Tropicana Farmstand Peach Mango

Fit in an extra serving of both fruit and veggies with this best-of-both-worlds pick. Peach and mango purees give it a "smoothie-like" consistency, while carrot and sweet potato juice fulfill half of your daily vitamin A needs. (120 calories)

Simply Orange with Tangerine

This orange-tangerine combo "strikes the perfect balance between sweet and tart," a tester said. "Case in point: I set up a make-your-own mimosa bar for a girls' brunch, and this juice was gone long before the others." (110 calories)

Even nonfans of tomato juice liked this "zesty, fresh-from-the-garden" spin on the classic. Despite delivering two grams of fiber, it has a texture that's surprisingly thirst-quenching, not thick. (50 calories)
