Well, basically when I concocted this little recipe, I was trying to come up with a lower calorie way of drinking fruit juice. Fruit juice is loaded with sugars, even if natural. I thought that it seemed a great waste of money to buy the "Lite" fruit juice at the market-its never on sale, always costs more and isn't necessarily the flavor I want. So what I came up with is a very simple alternative. Choose whatever 100% fruit juice you like. There's no sense to using anything except 100% juice.
