Kid Friendly Juicing Recipe Peach, Grape, & Apples

My son is a pretty Healthy Eater, he does not like Meat of any kind, so when we have meat at meals it's a struggle to get him to eat anything.  It is almost like his brain is processing meat at mealtime as the meat fairy sprinkling little meat dust particles all over the entire dinner.  So needless to say we have a hard time with it.  So I have been juicing for awhile now and figured I would give him the option of a Veggie Burger or a Juice.  Surprisingly he went with the juice and asked if he could make up his own recipe.  I agreed with the condition that I would pick one thing to go in it and he had to pick at least two vegetables to go into his recipe.
I was surprised by his choices.  And really wanted to try it.  We got everything ready and he juiced everything himself.  He definitely got a workout after pushing all those fruits and vegetables through the juicer.  There he is above pouring some for me and some for him :)  What a gentleman!! 
And the verdict, HE LIKED IT!!!  Score!!!  He drank the whole thing.  Which was such a relief from trying to get him to eat at mealtime.  I might use this more often :) 

Roman's Juice Recipe:
  • 2 Apples
  • 4 Celery Stalks
  • 1 Cup Grapes
  • 1/2 Cup Spinach
  • 1 Peach
  • Bunch of Kale (mom's addition)
Place everything in the juicer and enjoy!!  Makes two small servings.

This juice was a little on the sweet side.  I prefer more veggies and not as much fruit but for a 7 year old this was great getting those vegetables in a natural juice :)
