  1. 5 stars
    I’ve made this smoothie a few times now with a couple of minor tweaks. It’s super potent and definitely gives me a lift in the afternoon.

    • Hi Helena, that would depend on what the rest of your daily diet looks like. If you typically don’t eat a lot of fruits and veggies on an average day, drinking this smoothie once a day for a month can work well for you.

    • Hi Yann, that is fine, but it may not always taste as nice at that time of day. I prefer to eat something solid first, before drinking this detox green smoothie with such powerful ingredients like parsley and ginger.

  2. How much and how often should you drink this? Is it something that you would want to drink for a certain number of days and then take a break from it?
