when you drink it. Parsley has a cooling effect and my teeth are usually chattering away by the time I finish my quart of it.
Parsley Berry Smoothie
1-2 cups water (less if using fresh ingredients, more if using frozen)
2-3 ripe bananas
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 BIG handful parsely
3-4 leaves of kale
1 tbsp sprouted flax seed (optional)
Blend water and greens together then add the rest of the ingredients. Makes about a quart of green smoothie.
Note: I grew Lacinato kale and flat and curly leaf parsley in my garden this year. At the end of the summer I washed the kale, cut it up and put it in gallon freezer bags. I put about 1-1 1/2 cups of it in my smoothie. I cut down the parsley at the end of the summer as well and mixed types together in gallon bags. I break a nice-sized chunk of it off to put in my smoothie. If you have a nice ripe banana (yellow with a few small brown spots) you can get away with less banana and it will still be sweet.
