Introduction

This is dairy-free, nutrient and vitamin (esp. C + A!) dense, low calorie (76 per serving), and soothing for a burning throat/congested nose. I learned how to "juice" with my blender while working on a Montel Williams segment. It turns out with traditional juicers all that good fibrous material is discarded along with a lot of the raw goodness. This isn't his recipe - it's mine. It's delicious and I'm drinking it even though I am not the sick person! This is dairy-free, nutrient and vitamin (esp.
