Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes:

If you don’t have some of the ingredients I used in the recipe, you can swap some of them.

Feel free to experiment on your own, or try my suggestions below:

  1. Use Frozen Spinach: For a thicker cooler smoothie, use 1-2 nests of frozen spinach instead of fresh spinach.
  2. Swap The Pineapple: Use berries, bananas, or mango instead.
  3. Boost With Protein: Add kefir or yogurt (only if you are not vegan) for gut benefits and protein!
  4. Make It Sweeter: Add a teaspoon of honey, agave, or maple syrup.
  5. No Coconut Water? Use plain cold filtered or mineral water instead.

Best Time Time to Drink This Parsley Green Smoothie

  • First Thing in the Morning: Drinking this smoothie on an empty stomach can help kickstart your metabolism and provide a boost of nutrients and energy to start your day. 
  • Mid-Morning or Afternoon Snack: This smoothie can be a great mid-morning or afternoon snack.
  • With a Meal: If included with a meal, this smoothie can add a rich source of vitamins and minerals, enhancing the nutritional profile of your meal and aiding in digestion thanks to its fiber content.

Personally, I love drinking this smoothie in the morning, but it’s up to you when you want to drink it!
