I tried something new as part of a challenge and thought I'd get some opinions on it. It has things I don't normally consume that I've heard could be good, such as spirulina and chlorella. I haven't been drinking much in the way of juice because I'm concerned about drinking too many calories. This tasted a lot better than I thought it would.

Here are the ingredients: Filtered Water (sufficient to reconstitute), Apple Juice Concentrate, Peach Puree Concentrate, Pineapple Juice Concentrate, Banana and Mango Purees, Spirulina, Chlorella, Natural Gums (Xanthan Gum, Carrageenan, Locust Bean Gum, Sodium Alginate), Barley and Wheat Grasses, Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Natural Flavor, Broccoli and Spinach Powders.
