What's in this Green Smoothie?

This morning, on Facebook, a friend asked: "Penny, what are in the amazing Green Smoothies you made me? My mornings are all smiles and energy the last 2 days. Plus they are DELISHIOUS. :)"

Here's the recipe. (I also posted it on Saturday along with some other raw food creations I made that day.)

For the smoothie, in the blender, put:

~Kale, about 4 - 5 (or more) of your kale leaves from your this week's veggie bin. Simply break in half or thirds to get the leaves to fit in your blender container.

~ Parsley, small handful. A little parsley will go a long way.

~ Banana, 3 - 4...depends on the sweetness and smoothie consistency you want. (If you use bananas you've frozen, this can serve as your "ice" if you want a cold smoothie.

~ Lemon Juice..from 1/2 of a lemon

~ Coconut Oil, approx. 1 tablespoon. Again, I use this brand. Delicious!

~ Water, approx. 2 cups

~ Optional ~ Honey, approx. 1 tablespoon. The honey serves to provide a tad more sweetness if you desire it. (I used local honey supplied by The Veggie Bin.)

In blender, add all ingredients above and blend well. You should end up with a very smooth, somewhat thick consistency. Use fewer bananas or more water if you want a thinner consistency.
