5 Juice Recipes for kids to make on the Go


These juice recipes for kids can be made on the go with a travel-size juicer. To introduce immune-boosting juices to our kids, the secret is to add as much fruit as you need to get past the green taste! 

Since it is always best to source organic and local produces, local markets are an amazing source for these recipes, and the ingredients can vary. If you are not able to purchase products from a reliable organic source you can wash produces in a vinegar bath (3 parts water and 1 part vinegar).

Adding ginger to most recipes is a great way to aid digestion while traveling. An adult can pre-cut and wash all the produce ahead of time and let the kids help in the actual juice making, this helps them get acclimated to new ingredients found at the destination.

1. The "Orange Juice" for beginners

It is an amazing immune-boosting juice, perfect to drink pre-departure or at arrival to allow the body to adjust to new microbes at the destination. Because oranges are usually a familiar ingredient, for kids, this juice recipe is great for families who begin their juicing journey. 

  • 3 Whole Carrots
  • 1 Orange 
  • 1/4″ Fresh Ginger Root
  • 1/4″ Fresh Turmeric Root 
  • 1 Apple

Add a small amount of garlic to it, if they need some antibiotic boost. But, just a clove since it can get a little spicy.

2. The "Evergreen" Juice

  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Celery Stalks
  • 2 Apples
  • 1/4″ Ginger Root

5. Smoothie for hungry kids

Juices are a great way to get nutrients into our bodies but sometimes kids need something a bit more filling. Smoothies still contain the pulp and healthy fiber from the fruits and veggies, so they will keep your kids fuller for longer. If your accommodation has a blender here is an all-time favorite recipe that can be adapted to your child’s allergies and dietary restrictions.

  • 2 Handfuls of Frozen or Fresh Spinach
  • 1 Banana 
  • 1 Cup Frozen Strawberries
  • 1 Cup Frozen Mango
  • 2 Cups Plant-Based Milk (i.e Oat Milk) *
  • 2 Tablespoons of Peanut Butter **

*If you like a thinner smoothie, you can add more milk to thin it out.
**For those with a nut allergy, use Sunflower Seed Butter or Tahini instead.
Hope you enjoy these great vitamin-packed recipes. If you don’t have all of the ingredients, play around a little, and get creative with what you do have. If it tastes too bitter or too GREEN, add a little more fruit. Once you get the hang of it and figure out the ratio of fruit to vegetables that you and your kids like, the sky is the limit! Remember to include your kids in as much of the process as possible so they stay engaged and interested. Now have fun with it and get juicing!
