Fans of Tony Stark will be familiar with his healthy green juice. This juice is a rich red-gold, more like the Iron Man suit, thanks to the red chard. For a greener juice, use green chard instead. Either way, it’s full of good stuff, to help make you strong enough to fight the bad guys.
Makes 15 to 20 ounces.
2 medium apples
2 medium carrots
1 rib celery
4 leaves red Swiss chard
2 handfuls spinach
2 handfuls curly endive
1 (¼- to ½-inch) slice fresh ginger
Core the apples. Trim the carrots and celery.
Juice the apples, carrots, celery, chard, spinach, endive, and ginger according to the directions on your juicing machine.
Whisk to combine.
Add water to taste if you or your children prefer a milder juice.
