      I am so impressed. I always have problems snacking around 3:00. I made these ice cubes and started sipping water with them in it around 2:00 and I honestly felt more in control of my appetite. I don't have a juicer so I used my blender and that worked fine. The gret news is that I have plently left for the next few days. It also helped me to drink my water. Thanks Mama. This is truely one of the best things I have found on zaar.

      Got some prickly pears in my bountiful basket and didn't know what to use them for as have never had them before. I did this to them and use them in smoothies. WOW what a great energy booster!!!

      I got several prickly pears in a Bountiful Basket and after trying them wasn't a real fan. To be honest, this recipe appealed to me based on ease of not only preparation, but getting them used up before they went bad. I'm not sure if I felt my appetite was tamed, but I did notice my energy level pick up. I have to say I held my breath while sipping, the flavor and sent of prickly pear isn't appealing to me. I have a feeling I may have tossed them if I hadn't tried this. Thanks for posting.
