Sweet Dinosaur Juice

Well the juice is not exactly made from dinosaurs or for dinosaurs (I guess you figured that out) but they name is actually designed to make the juice more appealing for kids...and it works (at least for my nephews). Very few children I know would like to drink broccoli juice or beetroot juice but naming the drinks with adventurous names such as Princess Drink, Dinosaur Juice, Cowboy Smoothie, Dracula Drink or something else equally appealing might get them excited. It is at least worth a try! The Dinosaur Juice is very rich in iron and sweet and packed with antioxidants. It can also be enjoyed by grown ups and is particularly good if you are anaemic.

You will need a juicer to make this juice.

This is one way you can give children the hated broccoli
