Increase your kid’s fruit and veggie intake with this yummy Super Duper Green Juice! It’s filled with tons of nutritional goodness and only requires 5 simple ingredients!
Thank you, Sprouts Farmers Market, for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are truly my own.
I don’t know about you, but it can be very challenging to get my boys to eat enough fruits and vegetables. At ages 5 and 7, it’s very important for them to have a balanced diet that includes a good amount of essential nutrients. When dealing with kids, it’s always a good idea to come up with fun and creative recipes that you can sneak in some extra nutrients. That’s why I created this amazing Super Duper Green Juice!
When preparing to make this juice, I always head to Sprouts to pick up my ingredients. I absolutely love shopping at Sprouts. I’m always amazed at their great selection, featuring the freshest produce.
For this recipe, you’ll need apples, oranges, carrots, kale, and ginger. And what makes this recipe so “Super,” is all of the nutritional benefits provided by these fresh ingredients, especially the kale and the ginger.
Did you know that kale is a power source for nutrients like vitamin A, vitamin C, good fats and fiber? Vitamin C is one of the largest immune system supporters of all time. A daily dose of vitamin C is a MUST for kids. It not only boosts your child’s immune system, but also helps repair red blood cells, strengthens blood vessels and helps heal cuts and bruises too.
Ginger is often overlooked but has a ton of health benefits for children as well. Ginger is a natural expectorant that can relieve your child from coughs. If you notice the first signs of flu, try making a hot cup of ginger-infused tea. It can help clear nasal congestion, too. Ginger also helps prevents nausea/vomiting and improves digestion.
To make this super easy recipe, simply place all ingredients in your juicer and let it work! You’ll be surprised by the taste, and the kids will love it! Don’t forget to make enough for yourself too! Enjoy!
