I add four or five slices to the liquid portion of my recipe and puree it in my Magic Bullet (little blender). You only want to use organic fruit for this though, otherwise you are getting pesticides and orange dye #6 in your food.

There is orange dye on my oranges!? Why cant they leave food alone! Sorry, for the rant...and thanks for teaching me something today. I wonder if there is dye on my lemons?
