I love a good smoothie. I don’t drink them as often as I’d like anymore, mainly because our blender is really freaking loud. But on the weekends, I love a good smoothie. I first got into them because of Meghan Telpner, a holistic nutritionist out of Canada whose enthusiasm is contagious, to say the least. If you’re into good, whole foods (especially vegetarian and vegan, but not exclusively) and using food as medicine, you should really check out her site—oodles of recipes, great nutritional info, and foodie inspiration.
But I digress. I recently stumbled across this recipe on Pinterest for a green smoothie from the Beauty Sweet Spot. I’ve long been a fan of the Bolthouse Farms Green Goodness smoothie, but it’s got a lot more sugar than I’d prefer and is pretty durn expensive. So I gave this recipe a shot, thinking it might be a good alternative, packed as it is with “green.”
This stuff is good. My friend Anna was admittedly skeptical about green smoothies, so I took her a sample to try. She agreed: delicious. For the record, I made it with both cilantro and parsley because I like those herbs—but you can definitely taste them, so if you don’t like those flavors, leave those two out. But for me, it was delicious, refreshing, surprising, and energizing.
