Your kids are never going to know how healthy this juice truly is! This juice is so delicious and sweet they are going to ask for it daily. We added fresh ginger in this recipe to give the juice a kick. Too much can be quite spicy, so only add a very small amount or omit if you don’t like the spiciness it gives. This juice provides vitamins, beta-carotene and antioxidants which makes us moms delighted when kids gulp this healthy drink down.
