Magic Mango Juice
Magic Mango Juice Guru

Kids adore this delicious blend of sweet and tangy fruit with a slight kick from fresh ginger. Mangos are loaded with more than 20 different vitamins and minerals, including an abundance of provitamin A, carotenoids such as beta- and alpha-carotene, and vitamin C. Oranges are also an excellent source of vitamin C, and are great for bolstering children’s immune systems while providing antioxidant protection. Pears provide copper and vitamins C and K.

Watermelon Straight Up

Watermelon juice is not only refreshingly sweet and delicious but also extremely nutritious. While the juicy red flesh of watermelon is loaded with vitamin C and the carotenoid lycopene, the white part of the rind (which we typically don’t eat) contains an incredible amount of phenolic antioxidants, flavonoids and more vitamin C. Juicing both the flesh and the white rind helps us get all those nutrients we normally might toss onto the compost pile.

Classic Green Smoothie

While we know it is important to eat lots of greens, some of us just don’t like the taste. Green smoothies are an excellent way to consume leafy green vegetables, because the (sometimes bitter) taste is neutralized by the fruit. This smoothie is sweet and nutty, with just a hint of vanilla. It provides potassium, provitamin A and vitamins C, E and K (to name a few), as well as biotin. It’s also extremely hydrating, restores electrolytes and is antioxidant, anticancer and anti-inflammatory.
