Green Ginger Parsley Smoothie
We are really branching out for us now as we are trying to add more vegetables to our lifestyle. You can’t have enough veggies. I know of no “diet” that limits veggie intake.
I have been reading about different smoothie combinations, and I saw a smoothie with ginger and another recipe with parsley. We’ve never given thought to ginger or parsley in a smoothie and decided to give it a shot together. I bought my first ginger root a couple of weeks ago. Have you seen one before? They are a little gnarly~in a rad sort of way, too.
Now that we’ve used the ginger root, we are wondering where it’s been our whole lives. What a great addition! It provides a fresh taste that can mask some of the bitterness of the lettuce, and I couldn’t even tell lettuce was in the smoothie. I love how sweet the smoothie is, too. If it’s not sweet enough for your taste buds, you can add more honey or agave, but try it first.
Updated 2/15. Now I add ginger to almost all of our smoothies, as there are so many great health benefits. And actually both ginger and parsley are anti-inflammatory, and they both fight cancer and diabetes. Gotta love them!
