Citrus Parsley Smoothie

I was in the mood for something citrus and fresh, and came up with this creation.  I am trying to employ more parsley and the combination with citrus seemed really appealing.  I love having different smoothie flavors everyday!  It really livens up the flavors we partake.

Citrus Parsley Smoothie The Conclusion:

I think this combination provides for such a fresh taste!  This is more like a juice than a smoothie.  I made and tried it with the almond milk and without.  It’s “citrusy” sour, either way, but the almond milk takes some of the edge off, makes it creamier, and totally reminds me of an Orange Julius.  I am imagining it’s a lot healthier, though!

If you don’t like parsley or one of the citrus fruits, you can reduce their amounts.
