Awesome for my 2nd graders lunch box. He has lots of loose baby teeth these days and that makes eating sandwiches hard and painful. This will be a great treat!

I made this yesterday without knowing this recipe was here. Couple of things I did differently though. I use a nutribalst so eveything gets pulverized. I added about 6/7 baby carrots,2 peeled mandarins (whole) , one whole peeled kiwi, a handful of spinich ...instead of allspice I added about 3 cilantro sprigs, a teaspoon of goji berries, a teaspoon of maca, a teaspoon of agave, and 1/2 cup of water.... blitzed it up.... delicious!
