Green Smoothie


Another long absence, woops! But the move to Nelson is complete, more or less, and I don't plan to move cities again for quite a while. All the basic needs have been met (apartment, job, etc)...now I just need friends and to find time for more fun and activities (like blogging!).


While I was traveling between provinces and homes, I drank a lot of smoothies. I was introduced to the combination of green apple and parsley, and became obsessed. Because A, it is delicious, and B, parsley is has a lot of nutritional good in it.


I make this smoothie daily lately, so I tried to keep it more green and less sweet. Not a dessert smoothie, although there is a lot of fruit in it. Since there's so much in season, I've been making a lot of fruit swaps  lately (blueberries for strawberries, peaches for mango...), but this is less about the exact smoothie recipe, and more about how I think parsley is great in sweet drinks.

  3. One of the trends now is keeping yourself healthy by taking in nutrients through the beverages that you drink.http://smoothierecepty.cz
