One of Little Dude’s favorite morning activities is fresh pressed juicing! He love to make fresh delicious and nutritious juices. When you think about it, making orange juice is easier than you think. Making fruit juices can be fun too, especially when you are using ingredients that you like, plus you are being healthy in the process and that’s the main thing.
I cut up all the fruit & vegetables and he loves to put it through the juicer and watch all the juice come out! What fun it is to come up with kinds of juice combinations and blends!
Our favorite combination is this fresh carrot, mango, apple, orange & pineapple juice. It’s packed with tons of healthy vitamins that are so good for you. And it’s fun to do too! I love having him take part in the process of making juice because it teaches him about healthy habits and about making healthy food choices in a fun way.
We also love to make different juice shots too. It’s also a fantastic way to use up any fruits and vegetables that almost past their expiration date. This juice can be stored for the next day in an air tight container.
