Nutritional Benefits

Excited about the powerful ingredients in this smoothie as much as I am?

Not only is it a great way to get lots of essential nutrients in, this green smoothie also fits well in any weight loss program.

Parsley is a powerful herb with many health benefits. The juice of parsley can serve as a diuretic, so it stimulates kidney activity to flush toxins out of our system.

Parsley bunch

Lemons are a very nutrient rich fruit that will make your immune system stronger, as they help stabilize your pH levels.

Rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber, parsley can help prevent constipation, control blood-cholesterol and provide better protection against diseases.

An excellent source of vitamin C, consuming lemons can help protect your body against immune system deficiencies.

Ginger reduces inflammation and is very effective at fighting those nasty and unwanted cold and flu symptoms.

Slices of ginger

Cucumbers are a good source of B vitamins, vitamin C and vitamin K, and help control cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and prepare yourself this amazingly healthy green smoothie, you won’t regret it!

  1. 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?

    • 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. 5 stars
    I’ve made this smoothie a few times now with a couple of minor tweaks. It’s super potent and definitely gifts 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.
