A Glass-full Of Nutrition
One thing to note about the nutrition facts for this recipe – they are not perfectly accurate.
Once the ingredients are juiced most of the fiber is gone which changes the carbohydrate count and therefore, the calorie count. Unfortunately, online nutrition calculators can’t take that into account.
What I can tell you is that this juice is an excellent source of vitamins A and C, and contains many other vitamins and minerals.
