  3. Pour mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a bowl OR pitcher. Press the pulp firmly into the sieve with a spatula to extract as much liquid as possible.

Recipe Notes

Did you know? Tropical fruits aid digestion [due to a digestive enzyme called betaine] and provide sweetness without much added fructose.

Pair this juice with any meal to boost veg intake! Consider steeping a large batch of mint tea to simplify prep. Short on time? Great storebought options include: Athletic Greens, Organifi and Amazing Grass.
