Vitamin C Boost with Parsley

My family loves garnishing food with parsley. The green pop is quite pretty and really adds life to photos. But I learned something cool about parsley while I was researching healthy eating. Did you know it’s high in vitamin C? According to the USDA, one tablespoon of parsley can provide 8% of your recommended vitamin C while also having 0 fat and being only 1 calorie. Not bad, eh?

So, can you taste it in this smoothie? I only added a tablespoon, and I didn’t really. Sort of like my advice when you’re just starting out making green smoothies, if you’re worried start small. Add a little, see how you like it and adjust going forward.

The pop of green on top of the smoothie bowl adds a fun twist to the typical toppings.

Have you guys tried this Naked Granola? My local grocery store recently started selling it, and I’ve been enjoying it. It has a slightly chewy texture, which I really like. This Taste of Maui went really nicely with my tropical-themed smoothie bowl.
