Fresh Apple, Parsley, Chard & Medjool Date Smoothie

On Monday, I made a smoothie out of the greens in my crisper, a red apple on the counter and some dates I had in the pantry. It was so delicious that I have been drinking this green goodness every day this week.

Try this smoothie out this weekend. It’s fresh, creamy, naturally sweet and full of phytonutrients and fiber.

Makes: 2-3 large glasses
Time: 5-10 minutes

Tools:
Blender

Ingredients:
3-4 leaves of organic chard
3-4 medjool dates
1 organic, red apple
1/2 bunch, organic parsley
1-2 cups pure water (you can use coconut water for extra sweetness and electrolytes)

Let’s get started.
Remove the main stem from the chard if you like, you can leave it on. Core the apple. Remove the pits from the medjool dates. Place the parsley, with stems in the blender. Add water. Place the cored apple, chard and pitted dates into the blender. Mix until creamy. Enjoy!

    Yum! Enjoying this right now. For an artist, I am not very creative. I would never have thought to put these things together! Thanks for sharing, as always.

    I love this recipe so much. I’ve been making variations of it almost every day since the new year.

    Just made this and did a happy dance as I gulped it down. This was fantastic! I would have never though to combine these things together. This will be a weekly regular. Thanks!
