Green Juice Recipe


We’ve been juicing a lot around here the past few weeks, because we got a new juicer. My kids love it to make their own juice concoctions.

Green apple juice by super healthy kids

This juice I suggested we add a little cucumber to the apple juice.  Erica said, “You can’t put vegetables in a juicer! There is no juice in veggies.” Oh my! Where have I failed?! I can’t be a healthy mom blogger if my kids aren’t realizing they’re drinking vegetable juice!  So, I had her help me juice the cucumber and see just how much juice we could get out of a vegetable. She was surprised to say the least.

Juicing is a fabulous way to help your kids get their daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables.  However, getting all your fruits and vegetables in juice form is not recommended.  There are enormous benefits, such as fiber, from the skin of produce. The American Academy of Pediatrics says toddlers should drink no more than 6 ounces of juice per day and kids 4-5 years old, no more than 12 ounces per day.  We have a juicing category with more recipes here.

So, here is our 12 ounces for today:


Green Goblin’s Apple Juice Recipe

  • 1 Granny Smith Apple
  • 1 Golden Delicious apple
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1/2 cup water

Juice apples and cucumber together.  Add water to thin out the consistency.  Settling occurs quickly, and the drink separates.  Keep a spoon in your cup, or use a cup with a lid so you can shake or stir often.  This recipe makes 4, 1/2 cup servings (4 ounces each)

I asked on Facebook what their kids favorite juices were.  Here are some of the great responses:

Margaret: yes-oj but i don’t use it nearly as much as I should! You can hide some carrot in the oj super easy.
