Prune Juice

There are plenty of other ways to get prunes into the diet other than juice.

For breakfast, prunes can be added directly to hot cereals like muesli, porridge, or rice for natural sweetness without adding extra sugar. Prunes can be added to breads and muffins to replace some sugars while adding fiber and flavor.

Topping a salad with a few prunes may help people increase their daily intake, while others prefer to simply eat them out of the bag. Prunes themselves are very sweet, and can be eaten alone or mixed with nuts in a healthy trail mix.

A few prunes after a meal can serve to curb sweet cravings, as well as provide the body some extra soluble fiber.
