Parsley Pear Power Smoothie

One of my favorite breakfast or mid-day pick-me-ups is a parsley-pear smoothie made with softish pears and organically grown Italian parsley, ginger, and lemon. Here's what you need for a smooth yet slightly tangy health drink:

  • 1 ripe pear (any type will do)
  • a fistful and a half of fresh, organic Italian parsley
  • a sliver of chopped fresh garlic
  • half a lemon
  • enough pure spring water to liquify the mixture (less if you want it thick)
optional: a dash of cayenne pepper for extra tang, a tsp of maca powder for extra energy, a pinch of bee pollen for extra B vitamins, a tbs of flaxseeds for extra Omega 3 fatty acids

Place all in a blender and blend!

2 pears, a little more parsley, and a whole lemon make enough for two people.
