The ratio in this recipe is 1 vegetable to 1 fruit, which may be too sweet for some people and not sweet enough for others. If it’s not sweet enough, try adding more fruit or a little noncaloric sweetener (such as stevia).
I make the same thing everyday and it does help with weight loss and being in better heath.
I really Ike the new wide mouth jar. My machine works so much better and quieter!
