Having trouble getting your kids to even look at a glass of green juice (never mind drink it)? What you call it can make all the difference in the world. So pull out your superhero directory and get creative: Ninja Turtle Power Juice, Green Lantern Super Juice, Hulk’s Muscle Smoothie or use the name of any green-colored character that your child adores.
And if that doesn’t work, just tell them a mischievous leprechaun made it!
- 5 cups spinach
- 1 bunch kale (~8 stalks)
- 6 medium carrots
- 2 Golden Delicious apples
- 1 lemon (peeled)
- 3 slices of golden honeydew (could substitute cantaloupe or pineapple chunks)
Yields 42 oz.
Rinse all produce, even if using organic items. Use a juicer (or Vitamix-type blender) and mix to desired consistency. Smoother tends to be more palatable for younger children and easier for digestion.
Serve Cold. You can also freeze this juice as ice pops.
