Green Juice for Kids

I usually make smoothies for my kids, but today I tried juice and my 4-year-old asked for seconds! She said it is “so lemony good.”

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 lemon (juice the peel if it is organic)
  • Big handful of spinach

Cucumbers are 95 percent water, keeping the body hydrated while helping the body eliminate toxins. Cucumbers have most of the vitamins the body needs in a single day. Juice the cucumber with the skin on because the skin contains a good amount of vitamin C, about 10 percent of the daily-recommended allowance.

Lemon water flushes out body toxins and is extremely beneficial for the body. Lemon is an excellent and rich source of vitamin C, an essential nutrient that protects the body against immune system deficiencies.

Spinach is high in niacin and zinc, as well as protein, fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K, thiamin, vitamin B6, folate, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper, and manganese. It is loaded with good things for every part of your body!

You can make a smoothie out of these ingredients (minus the lemon & cucumber peels). Add approximately 1 cup of water. An apple and some honey would be great additions too.
