Juicing 101

For the past couple of weeks I have juiced this platter of fruits and veges every afternoon and it has truly become my caffeine replacement.  Literally five minutes after I drink this beautiful mix, I get a rush of energy I typically only get from two shots of espresso minus the crash and the guilt.

    What is the ratio of each fruit/veggie you place in your juice. I would love to try this this weekend

      The ratio is 60% fruit and 40% veges but its completely a taste issue for me and the fact I enjoy my juice a bit sweeter.
