TASTY TIPS:

  • In the grape version, you can first wash and dry individual grapes, then freeze them. Add them to the blender frozen.
  • If the berry mix includes blackberries, be prepared for their seeds (which are a good source of fiber).
  • The tangerine/orange version tastes like a creamsicle, but you have to cut the segments out from between the membranes or you get big pieces of skin in the shake.
