It was great fun preparing this for you to enjoy, I enjoyed eating all that afterward don’t worry about that. The blender I’m using, I found by reading this review of best juicing blenders. I found that this one suited my needs and I liked how it looked. As always, please be safe while you prepare food with machinery and knives.
