Treat yourself to this healthy and guilt-free naturally sweet concoction! Not quite a drink because it's good and thick and at the start anyway even requires a spoon. Delicate in flavor and a delicate pretty pink. Hubs who is really the first reviewer of this recipe not me declared the taste "wonderful." His only criticism was that this starts to separate immediately after pouring it into the glass the slushy part from the liquid part so it requires continual stirring. Still he thoroughly enjoyed two tall mugs of this! Read More

It was really bland until I tripled the orange juice. I may make it again but I'll use a full cup of OJ. Read More

Very light & refreshing. I did add a frozen banana & did not have trouble with it separating. I think I prefer drinking my melon now! Read More

I threw everything except the agave and mint in the juicer then added them to the juice and poured into Popsicle molds for morning "juice bars". Great way to reduce juice intake and make sure you savor the flavor. Can't wait for the kids to try tomorrow. A.M. update: My toddler and teen devoured these! Read More
