Afternoon Pick Me Up

I love green juice. 

I say it loud and proud: I absolutely love green juice. But, I do not like juicing – too much mess and laborious. I also don’t love paying through the teeth for green juice. And so, enter my Vitamix. I embrace the fibre and thin it out with two secret weapons: water and lime juice. This Vitamin C boost helps your immune system in flu season, and is delicious. Trust me! If you need it thinner, add more water. Put it in a mason jar and shake it up, 

Smoothie Ingredients

  • 1 cup of washed spinach or kale
  • 1 cup of other greens – napa cabbage, romaine, watercress – you choose. 
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 stalk celery
  • 1 lime – freshly grate the rind, and juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup coconut water (or two cups water)
  • 1 tbsp freshly chopped ginger
  • 1/4 cup parsley, freshly chopped. 
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds


Blend all ingredients together in a blender / Vitamix. Add additional water if you want to thin it out more and sip throughout the day. Put in a mason jar to shake up as needed. Parsley is so anti-inflammatory, you won’t know what hit you – your gut will love this drink.
