Giving the juice a creative name, attracts your kids attention and stimulates their curiosity. There is no way they won’t try it especially if they are picky eaters like my son.
“jus de lapin” or rabbit juice because it contains carrots and has a bright orange color!
- 1 large carrot
- 1 big banana
- juice of 3 mandarines
- half cup ice (optional)
- 1 tsp honey (optional)
Mix all and blend for 2-3 minutes until smooth and frothy.
My son is not fan of sweet taste, i didn’t add the honey since the mandarin were not very sour.
If the fruits are already cold or some frozen, you can skip adding ice. I put two colorful ice sticks for fun and to keep it chilled.
