Tips and Notes:
- I prefer a blender for a juicer to keep all of the nutrients and fiber of the fruits and vegetables. A great way for picky eaters especially kids to intake some naturally grown fresh produce.
- The sugar rim can be a little sweet, if you like a few lemon drops go well for a different variation.
