2 cups water
2 cups wild blueberries
1 large handful parsley
Zest of 1 lemon
Juice of ½ a lemon
1 Tbsp. flax meal
1 knob fresh ginger, about the size of a small adult thumbnail
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla 20 drops vanilla liquid stevia
¼ cup Brazil nuts
Optional: 1 Tbsp. maca root powder ice
PREPARATION Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high until creamy and smooth. This smoothie is on the more liquid side, so be sure to add ice if you’d like it a bit more slushy-like. With a less powerful blender, be sure to chop the parsley. Also, add ingredients and blend, one at a time, until all ingredients are liquefied.
