If you need a light, refreshing drink to start the day, this 5-minute parsley smoothie recipe comes to the rescue. It's a low-calorie and tasty green smoothie that will help your body detoxify naturally and feel healthier and more energetic.

We combined fresh parsley, cucumber, ginger root, and coconut water.

Simply blend these ingredients into your trusty blender with one banana for extra creaminess and sweetness, and you're done!

If you fancy, finish the smoothie off with a dash of lime juice for a vitamin C kick.

A good detox recipe gives your body the tools needed to clear off extra toxins and fight inflammation. This means fibres, lots of water, and antioxidants.

Fibres trap the toxins like a sponge, water helps to flush them away, and antioxidants eliminate damaging free radicals.

Parsley, cucumber, and ginger roots are all rich in antioxidants.

Moreover, parsley also provides vitamins A, C, and K, protecting the heart, eyes, bones, and immune system[1]; cucumbers are 96% water, meaning they can help you stay hydrated[2]; and ginger root is also well-known for its powerful anti-inflammatory properties and digestive aid[3].

We paired these veggies with electrolyte-rich coconut water and fibre-packed bananas.

Drinking more water helps you stay hydrated throughout the day, while the soluble fibres found in bananas act as prebiotics feeding friendly bacteria.

In turn, they make the gut happier and healthier, keeping out toxins and reducing inflammation[4].

A nice glass of this detox parsley smoothie has less than 90 calories, 7% RDI of carbs, and 14% RDI of fibres.

Step 2

Then, blitz all into a smoothie.

Being made with fresh parsley, the smoothie will have a few small bits, but you can add more bananas to make it creamier. Alternatively, you could sieve it an turn it into juice, but you'd be losing precious fibres.
