Green Machine Smoothie

Green Machine Smoothie Recipe

Yummy! This smoothie recipe tastes like fresh green vegetables out of the garden. Why cover up that awesome flavor with too much sweet fruit or juice? The parsley gives the smoothie a fresh, almost savory taste. One serving of this smoothie is only 120 calories. It is high in at least 10 important nutrients, including fiber and iron. The fact that the leaves are ground up may increase the absorption of the iron from the fibrous leaves of the spinach and kale. The high vitamin C content provides an acidic environment for iron to be absorbed in the body.
