I love love love fresh juices and smoothies. They are a fun, delicious way to get more vitamins and nutrition into your diet. Kids love smoothies, too! Kids think they are getting a fancy dessert but mom knows they are loading up on good for you nutrition.
This is the smoothie recipe I have been making a few times a week now and my son loves it just as much as I do. It's especially high in vitamins A and C and has less than 150 calories
I have a juicer that I use to make the fresh carrot and ginger juice. If you don't have a juicer, you could use packaged organic carrot juice from the store.
