    For the juices listed in this recipe, are they store-bought OJ and carrot juice or made at home in a juicer? Do you use fresh, frozen or canned pineapples? Thank you.

      Hi Kim! Sorry for the delay– we just found all of these messages in our spam box. We’ve made it with both home made and store bought carrot and orange juice. We prefer to do it ourselves, but it’s not all that practical. We typically use frozen pineapples– they add a great texture! We hope this helps! x & x, T & L
