Amy's Favorite that is not sold at Puree! Why? We don't know!
- 2 cucumbers,
- 1 pear
- a few stalks of celery
Wash and trim produce. Cut to fit through feed tube of your home juicer. Run all through the juicer and pour into chilled glass to enjoy! Tip: chill all produce before juicing
- 1/2 Romaine Lettuce head
- 3 or 4 carrots
Peel carrots, wash and trim romaine lettuce. Feed through your juicer and serve in a chilled glass. This juice is very strange in that somehow, we think it tastes like chocolate milk! Play around with the ratios to find one that suits your palate. Tip: chill all produce before juicing
Grapefruit, Beet, Lemon
- 1 Grapefruit
- 1/2 Beet
- 1/2 Lemon
Trim lemon and grapefruit. Wash and peel beet. Cut to fit through the feed tube of your home juicer. Serve in a chilled glass. We love the earthy, bitterness of the grapefruit and beet together. The lemon really brings out the flavor! Add a little agave if to bitter for you!

Miles's Marvelous Roasted Radishes
We’ve gotten this box for 4 weeks in a row now. The vast majority of the items have been ordinary, easy to use fruits and veggies (spinach, apples, oranges, portobello mushrooms, carrots, tomatoes, etc.). They’ve been great quality and I’m very happy with this service.
I am very satisfied with your service, delivery was on time and packing was good. I was surprised with lots of ginger! Figs delicious, brussels sprouts, watermelon radish, cherry tomatoes etc looked very good. I am not a big cooker but I like fresh produce. I will order again soon!
Well chosen organic produce in good shape; so happy to have fresh figs! & good looking ginger along w/ great turnips etc etc
Pleased w/ all the items..........
Thank you..............also, well packaged.
Lovely produce, was able to use everything for my juicing needs. Only wished the spinach came bunched as it makes it easier to juice. The grapefruits were amazing! Glad this box is offered weekly as I'll purchase in the future.
I was very pleased with my Puree produce box. It arrived timely and safely packed; the variety of produce was great; and the freshness and quality, excellent. While (as advertised) not all products are from local farms, they are all organic, healthy and nicely clean. The first thing I did was squeeze two of the Valencia oranges and they were delicious! I will order again.
