A Simple Five Finger Juice Recipe

This recipe is simple and straightforward so much so that I feel other twists could be done to this basic five finger juice recipe. What we did the second time we made five finger juice was to add a bit of orange juice to it. It was really amazing. Next time I would like to try out maybe orange and pineapple together with the five finger. I can’t wait to try that!



I can just imagine the semi sweet fruitiness of the five finger juice together with the slight tang of the orange and …… I’ll be short . While you all try this wonderful five finger juice I am going and pick some more…..(thinking to myself .. I think it still have ah tin of pineapple orange juice in de cupboard. Lemmeh stop typin’ and go get some five finger…….ah go pick a few extra to make something else one time).
