Apple Tropics

Here goes the Recipe for Apple Tropics..!!!

3 apples
1/2 pineapple
1/2 lime
1/2 passion fruit

An extra tang and a taste of the tropics  are evident in the apple recipe.
It's bes to stir the passion fruit flesh into  the juice once it's made, rather than passing it through the blender.
