Minty fruit juice

This one’s full of fruit, which normally would be heavy for me but I think the wheatgrass and mint lighten it up just enough for me.
  • half pineapple
  • 4 apriums (who knew this was a thing? substitute for apricots, which aren’t in season)
  • 2 cups blackberries
  • 2 pears
  • mint
  • wheatgrass

As I said, this was surprisingly light and filling – it lasted me all day given how much I got out of it:

Fun note – don’t just dump fresh cut, wheatgrass into a juicer, especially if it’s longer than an inch. Chop it smaller – when I opened my juicer, a good amount had wound itself around the blade and didn’t get juiced. Good tip for next time…
