This recipe makes about 2 cups of puree, and you only need 1-2 tbsp of puree for each glass, meaning you have approximately 20 servings in total. A great option is to freeze some of the extra raspberry puree to use later, rather than leaving it out or losing it in the chaos of your fridge. (Tell me I’m not the only one whose fridge feels like an endless abyss of jars and condiments!) If you’re feeling especially motivated, you can even freeze the puree in 1-2 tbsp quantities, which will just make things easier for yourself in the future!
If you prefer to reduce the refined sugar content, remember that you can substitute the sugar out for honey. Alternatively, you can try adding more raspberries and some concentrated apple juice and eliminate the sugar altogether. Play around with the recipe and find what works best for you. Have fun and enjoy!
