But if making your own juice is not for you, last year The meal delivery service Paleta (www.paleta.com) launched juices like the Sonic Tonic: collards and other greens with pear and lemon. Paleta ships a five-bottle cooler of juices for $79, which includes a shake made from nut milk; the beverages will last about five days. In April, Paleta's Karen Boyer is introducing a line designed for novices and kids: The 16-ounce servings contain 190 calories (a blend of kale, apple, celery and mint) to 240 calories (an orange, mango, lemon blend).
