i put grapes in a smoothie for the first time recently and it was very good. I also love parsley and frequently have green stains on my wooden chopping board as I prepare to add it to various dishes. In this recipe, Tess TheBlenderGirl adds it to her smoothie – recipe details are at the end of the post – which means one less item to scrub, lol!

Turns out parsley is extremely nutritious; here’s what Tess has to say …

Italian flat-leaf parsley is fantastic for adding into green smoothies because it is low in calories ( 1 cup contains about 20 calories ), incredibly cleansing, and is a nutritional powerhouse. The levels of vitamins and minerals in fresh parsley are just staggering! Parsley contains high levels of calcium, iron, copper, magnesium, potassium, zinc and phosphorus. It’s also an excellent source of vitamin A, as beta-carotene, Vitamin C vitamin K, and an excellent source of folate …

Parsley is a complete protein, containing all of the essential amino acids, and I eat it every single day, as it is one of the most alkalizing foods on the planet!

Note:
Tess warns against large amounts of parsley for pregnant women. You’ll get more info at TheBlenderGirl – source below.
