Best 100 Juices for Kids Book

by Jenn K on April 21, 2014

best 100 juices for kids

We absolutely love fresh homemade juice made in our juicer!  If you are a fellow-juicer or would love to increase the consumption of healthy, yummy, naturally sweetened juice instead of sodas, sports drinks, and expensive juices, then you need to check out my friend Jessica’s new book, Best 100 Juices for Kids: Totally Yummy, Awesomely Healthy, & Naturally Sweetened Homemade Alternatives to Soda Pop, Sports Drinks, and Expensive Bottled Juices!

This 192 page book covers 100 recipes including

  • fruit and vegetable-based juice
  • smoothies (including several dairy-free vegan options)
  • “sparklies” (club soda-based carbonated drinks)
  • icy slushies
  • juice-based ice pops

You don’t have to own a juicer to benefit from this book as about 25% of the recipes can be made without a juicer.  However, to truly get the most out of it, you will want to have a juicer of some sort.  I personally own the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro Juice Extractor and love it!

Currently, Best 100 Juices for Kids is 34% off on Amazon right now priced at only $11.14 with free shipping through Prime or on any $35+ order.  Buy it today and get ready for delicious refreshment just in time for the heat of summer!

Weekly Meal Plan with Printable List

The $5 Dinners Weekly Meal Plan with Printable Grocery List

Every week I will post 5 links to archived recipes, plus an additional 1 or 2 recipes for breakfast, snacks or batch cooking recipes.  You can click through to see the original recipe and print that recipe if you like. (Or go green and just come back to this post to get to the recipe.)

I hope and trust that everyone had a blessed Easter! Our family enjoyed a morning of worship, followed by a lovely and simple Easter lunch at our house with family and friends. Followed by a visit (with a plate full of Easter dinner food and cupcakes!) to our newest soldier friend stationed here in San Antonio. It was a lovely, restful and rejuvenating day!

Our Easter supper menu: Ham with Sherry Glaze, Scalloped Potatoes, Roasted Asparagus, Mixed Greens with Strawberries and Almonds, Garlic Bread & my mom picked up some adorable and scrumptious cupcakes for dessert.

So our menu this week is very erratic, as I’m out of town in Florida for 2 nights and we have several Fiesta events to attend as well this week. AND to top it all off, I’m hosting a shower for our church this weekend. Busy, busy, busy.

But I’ve got a plan for the night’s that I need a plan. :)

Yay for plans. Plans, plans, plans.
