Yummy Juice

Healthy Mommy

For those of you that juice, I was wondering if you have had any problems with your children drinking the concoction. I have a 7 year old and a 2 year old. It is pretty easy to get my oldest to drink the juice because I do not give her a choice. I'm having a bit of an issue with my youngest. If any of you have some awesome recipes I may have, will you please email them to me. Thanks in advance.

Okay, the other day, I decided to make some juice and I used pine apple, starfruit, spinach, and spring mix. I thought my invention was pretty good. My hubby thought it was alright and my oldest gave me problems once again. I gave some to my youngest and she said "yuck." I'm really wanting my kids to eat more greens. They LOVE to eat fruit but they give me a hard time when I serve them vegetables. The girls will eat sweet peas, corn, potatoes, and sweet potatoes but I wanted to incorporate more green vegetables. I found this recipe on the Internet but I have not tried it yet. Maybe I will next time I juice.


  1. I don't have a juicer, but love to make green smoothies. I over time have managed to get the kids to try it and even make their own creations.

    1. I think what I need to do is continue to make them and have them try them. I really do not want to stop. They are really healthy for them.

  2. I would say keep mixing it up. There are a ton of juice recipes and you just need to find a combination of fruit and veggies that they like and you are satisfied with. Good luck!
