Spring Green Smoothie

I’m getting way ahead of schedule here. International Green Smoothie Day is August 15. It’s only March 5. So what? I’m ahead of my time (or waaaay behind, but let’s not go there).

Info for the unfunkified: Smoothies don’t have to have bananas in them. They don’t even have to be sweet. They can even be GREEN. WOW!!

How long does it take you to eat a bunch of spinach, a bunch of parsley, a celery stick, a whole avocado, AND a whole cucumber? Too long to have all that for breakfast or lunch? Try drinking it!

Behold the Green Smoothie:

1 heaping handful baby Spinach

1 heaping handful Parsley

1 Celery stick (chopped)

1 Avocado (sans peel and pit)

1 Cucumber (peeled or unpeeled, and chopped)

1 teaspoon Lemon or Lime juice

up to 1 teaspoon Sea Salt (I like my Green Smoothie on the salty side, so you may want to use less)

enough Water to make the smoothie blender-whir-able (about 1/2 to 1 cup, depending on the volume of the other ingredients)

Put all that in a blender and whir.

Super quick, super easy, super healthful.
