Banana Apple Green Smoothie with Parsley

[This post is part of my Green Smoothie series]

I love using parsley in my green smoothies. It’s so refreshing, healthy, and easy to use. Just wash the bunch and roughly chop it, stems and all. If you don’t want to use a whole bunch (especially when you’re new to green smoothies) use half and store the rest in a cup of water in the fridge.

As with all green smoothies, adjust the ratio of fruit to greens to your taste. This smoothie can definitely use more apples than bananas as it goes very well with parsley.

Banana Apple Parsley Green Smoothie Recipe

  • 1 bunch parsley, roughly chopped
  • 1-2 bananas, chopped
  • 1-2 apples, chopped
  • 2 cups water

    In a blender, combine chopped bananas, apples, parsley and water. Blend on the highest speed until smooth and creamy.

    Total Time: 5 minutes
    Yield: 3-4 cups

      This was really good. Next time, I’ll stick to one apple and one banana though. I ended up putting one banana (because I am not too crazy about bananas) and two apples. Since the proportions did not match, and perhaps because I used green apples, it came out just a little sour. But, I’m pregnant and happen to LOVE sour anything, so it worked out. Thank you for the recipe. I plan on making these for my future son to be =)

        Thanks so much! Glad to hear your future son will get some healthy food 🙂
        Out of curiosity, what kind of blender are you using?

      Excellent! I like my smoothies really cold and I didn’t have any frozen bananas on hand, so I used 1 cup of frozen peaches, 1 banana and 1 apple. I put in the whole big head of parsley and it was great!

        Awesome Shireen. I haven’t tried frozen peaches before, I’ll try that out next time. Thanks for the comment. And glad your smoothie came out nicely!

      hi! i’m new to making green smoothies (i’ve only made one and i like it!) i’ve used spinach and can’t even taste it so i’m wondering if you can taste the parsley – i’m not a huge fan on cilantro…

        Hi Madison! That’s great you’re starting to make green smoothies. Yes, spinach is a very neutral green so it pretty much works in most green smoothies. I’m not big on cilantro either, can only take so much…but I love parsley smoothies, they’re a favorite of mine to blend. I think parsley gives the smoothie a fresh zingy flavor. You do taste it more than spinach but I would still give it a shot. Let me know how it goes! 🙂
