This recipe has been written for the C-Series machines with Variable Speed control and Standard 64-ounce container. If you are using a different Vitamix machine or container size, you may need to make adjustments to the Variable Speed, processing time, and/or ingredient quantities.
All your recipe instructions are to peel the kiwi, lemons, limes and oranges. Last week we were at Costco and watched the lady doing the vitamix demo. She never peeled the fruits I listed, and said it's not necessary. So let me know what's right.
We peel the fruits in our recipes for two reasons. The pith of these fruits are very bitter and we try not to add additional sugars in our recipes to balance the bitterness. Secondly in the recipes we are not calling to use organic produce, Oranges and the like have pesticides used on them therefore we do not recommend eating the skin.
