Kid Approved Green Juice Recipe

Kid Friendly Green Juice Recipe

I love vegetables. Ironically, my taste buds did not seem to like sauteed vegetables when I got pregnant with my daughter. I think it’s the smell and taste of onions and garlic in it. I can only eat vegetables if it’s boiled or steamed. Honestly, I missed not hating garlic. Luckily, I learned some green juice recipes through the net. It’s a good way of loading up vitamins and minerals you need in one glass. Plus, kids will love it too.

Basically, you need 3 key ingredients: 2 cups of greens/vegetables, 2 cups of water and 3 cups of fruits. Put all the ingredients in a blender or a juicer, then blend away.

You can have below recipes as example:

Recipe 1:

  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Green pepper
  • 1 cup water/coconut water/almond milk
  • 1 cup ice cubes (optional, you can put in 2 cups of water instead if you do not like it cold)
  • Banana (This will serve as a natural sweetener)
  • Mango
  • Apple
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Honey (optional, if you want to enhance the sweetness)

Note: Add water if the texture is too thick for you

Recipe 2:

  • Kale leaves
  • Celery
  • Romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup water/coconut water/almond milk
  • 1 cup ice cubes (optional, you can put in 2 cups of water instead if you do not like it cold)
  • Banana
  • Pineapple
  • Grapes
  • Kiwi
  • Honey (optional, if you want to enhance the sweetness)

Note: Add water if the texture is too thick for you

You can play around with what you have available on your kitchen. You can also add yogurt to earn a plus points to the little ones. Just remember to wash ingredients properly to prevent any food-borne illness.
