My daughter loved it I booked hers in spring water and used the water to blend until really thin... Let it cool an d cut pouches out of foodsaver bags sealed the sides out how much I give her in a serving and made individual serving sizes and vacuum sealed it to make sure I can get the best out of freezing them to avoid freezer burn and lost/change of flavor!!!
