Even though summer is coming to a close, I’m still into my green juices and smoothies; more than ever, in fact. This is one of my favorites and I owe credit to Meghan Telpner as it is based on one of the recipes from the Green Cleanse on her site.
I’m running out to the airport with one of these in hand to refresh and revive me on the dash to Denver. Soon I’ll be in NYC doing signings and I hope to see some of you there, while I’m in my green smoothie withdrawal.
- 1 large cucumber, skin on
- ¼ cup water
- ½ cup parsley, chopped
- ½ cup frozen pineapple chunks
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 5 drops stevia
- 4 ice cubes
- Place cucumber and water in a vitamix and process on high until liquid
- Add parsley, pineapple, coconut oil, stevia, and ice and blend until smooth
This refreshing green smoothie is a great post workout drink. It is hydrating, full of good greenness and a nice little dose of fat. I like to think of it as a green Piña Colada, or a “Greeña Colada.” I feel so healthy drinking it!
Speaking of getting healthy, the winner of last weeks Friday Freebie for the GAPS Guide is Jeannette!

Yummmm, does that greena colada look mouth watering! I know what I’m doing this weekend relaxing by the pool drinking one of those babies! :)
Wow! This looks yummy! I must try this sometime this week.
This sounds great! Can’t wait to give this recipe a try!
