According to The Juiceman’s Power of Juicing book, veggie juice averages 50 calories per 8 oz while fruit juice averages 100 calories per 8 oz.

Since fruit juice is so sweet, I’ve been trying to do at least 50/50 veggies vs. fruit (the more veggies, the better).  All of the nutrients and vitamins in the fruits and vegetables are beneficial, however! 🙂

I am always SO happy when Little Dude asks for juice.  He only drinks juice we make at home and he LOVES helping make it.  I basically wash & cut everything up and let him feed it into our NutriPro Juicer.  🙂

I also like to add chia seeds to my juice for the omega fatty acids.
