Naked Juice Mustaches

My kids love Naked Juice. They are fruit juice smoothies packed full of vitamins, minerals and tons of great flavor. I think the term "naked" is used because they keep the juice in it's natural state with no added sugar or preservatives. Perhaps they also like the name because anything with the word "naked" in it will probably get some attention. Naked Juice is available at Wal-Mart and all of the grocery stores that I frequent but they are a little pricey so I usually only buy it when it's on sale.

Of course, when I do actually buy it, my kids scarf it down in a day or so. It's just depressing how quickly we go through it and then we're left with none.

I like to serve Mighty Mango for breakfast instead of orange juice. It's a little something different but still perfect for first thing in the morning. Plus it has all kinds of good stuff in it to get you started for the day such as 1 1/4 mangoes, 1/2 oranges, 1 3/4 apples, and 1/3 banana. That seems like a healthy start to the day.

One of the kids' favorite flavors is Blue Machine. It contains 27 blueberries, 3 blackberries, 3 1/4 apples, and 1 banana. Because of the high berry content you could call it that fancy "superfood" word.

My kids don't care how healthy it is. They just love to drink it down.



My two year old is still working on her drinking skills. She tends to want to slam the drink back which just makes it slosh all over her face to give her a cute Blue Machine mustache.



Now I can't explain how my 7 year old boy ends up with such a messy face.



Perhaps it is even tastier if you lick it off your face instead of drinking it straight from the cup!



Note: Although I'm getting all preachy about how healthy Naked Juice is, this is not intended to be an advertisement for the stuff. No one asked me to write this post and I was not compensated in any way. We just really, really like it.
