I love the way these delicious green smoothies make me feel. I love that I am getting tons of healthy greens; spinach, kale, parsley, cilantro or whatever greens you like in one big jar a day, to give my body what it really wants.

  1. Add water to blender, fill the blender approximately 1/4 full.

  3. Add a pinch of fresh parsley and cilantro.
  4. If you desire, add a little bit of fresh ginger and a celery stalk or any other greens you like.
  5. Turn the blender on low and gradually increase the speed.
  6. Then put it on full power for about 30 to 45 seconds so the greens are really fine.
