SHH Parsley, Kale, and Berry Smoothie

From Champaign, OH

<p>Great taste! Give this a try! Parsley is the star of the show in this smoothie. 1 cup of Parsley has 3 times as much Vitamin C as an orange, twice as much iron as spinach.It helps fight cancer, is an anti-inflammatory for arthrtis, and boosts your immune system just to name a few good qualities.</p> <p>Italian and curled parsley contain equal amounts of vitamins and minerals.</p> <p>100 calories, 1 fat g., fiber 4 g.</p>
