This smoothie is so refreshing! The combination of fresh parsley and pineapple juice is so cleansing, and cool. This has become a new favorite of mine to make in the mornings. For quick smoothies I like to keep peeled frozen cucumber in the freezer along with bananas, and other fresh fruits to make smoothies a breeze. Grab your blender and let’s go!

Note: Always peel your bananas before freezing, and chop your cucumbers, and fruits up into chunks so its easier and faster to blend.

Yield: 1 large or 2 small smoothies

Ingredients:

1 cup almond milk
1 cup pineapple juice
1/3 cup frozen nectarines
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup collard greens
2 tbsp. fresh parsley
1/2 frozen cucumber

Wash collard greens, and parsley. In a blender add the pineapple juice, almond milk, nectarines, banana, cucumber, parsley, and collard greens. Blend until well combined.  If the smoothie is too thick, feel free to add filtered water or more milk or a few ice cubes to make it extra cold. Drink and enjoy.
