Detox Smoothie Bowl

Active Time: 10 minutes

Nutrition Corner: Parsley
Skeptical about adding parsley to your smoothie? This herb deserves a chance! A ½ cup of parsley contains well over your daily recommended intake of Vitamin K, and over half of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin C! (As always, if you are on any medications, consult with your doctor before beginning a dietary change. Those on blood-thinning medication may need to watch their intake of Vitamin K containing foods). The two most popular kinds of parsley are curly and Italian flat leaf. While either kind can be used in this recipe, flat leaf parsley is more fragrant and less bitter.
