Notes

  • One blender full (the amount this recipe is for) makes about 7-8 small servings, about 6 oz each. If you’re just making this juice for yourself, you may want to cut the recipe in half so you can enjoy all the juice within a few days. But if you have folks to share it with, definitely make the whole thing!
