A Parsley Smoothie for a Healthy New Year
Editor’s Note: Most green smoothies mask the flavors of their central ingredient, but this parsley smoothie plays up the herbal grassiness of its star player. Drinking one or two of these might even undo all that holiday gluttony. -- Jane
It's a no-nonsense kind of recipe that doesn't require you to pull each and every leaf from the parsley stems. Instead, after a quick trim, the stems can be thrown into the blender with everything else. In a matter of minutes, you have a tall glass of a pulpy green juice, flecked with red bits from the skin of the apple. Although interesting is hardly the most exciting or adequately descriptive word on the planet, this juice can be described in no better way.
