Refreshing Green Smoothie

This smoothie was actually a surprise for me ~ I had no idea it was going to turn out as good as it did.

This morning I was craving something with lots of greens that would be light and cool, but discovered that the fridge was rather low on greens. What I found was a large handful of parsley. I’m not one to generally get excited about the taste of parsley, but I decided to give it a try as the main green in today’s smoothie.

Into the vitamix went:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • about 3/4 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1 large handful fresh parsley (stems and all)
  • 1″ lemon (including the rind)
  • 1/2 cup plain unsweetened soy yogurt (for extra protein)
  • 1/4 cup brazil nut milk
  • 1 teaspoon spirulina
  • about 3/4 cup water (I didn’t measure, but added enough to get the right consistency)

I’d planned to also add some fresh ginger, but forgot, although I think it would be a great addition. This made between 3-4 cups of smoothie.

This was amazing! Light and refreshing and incredibly delicious. Definitely a keeper!
