This is a refreshing drink that I make for breakfast often.

This month, my mom let me take some of her parsley that was taking over her backyard garden.  

Now, with a huge pot of the herb in my apartment, it has made a great addition to one of my favorite morning green drinks.

Parsley is not only rich in vitamins, but it reduces water retention and bloating, making it a great detox smoothie ingredient.

It is a refreshing drink that will leave you feeling good.

I hope you all love this drink as much as I do!
