Parsley Celery JuiceI can’t say I’m really big on parsley. It’s great in tabouli after it’s been marinated in the lemon and olive oil and spices that give the dish such flavor. I manage to squeeze some parsley into our diet via my raw versions of falafel and “neat”balls. But for how detoxifying and full of chlorophyl parsley is, I certainly didn’t get enough of it. This drink has changed that. The citrus, salt, and agave give it a very smooth taste. This is great in the morning for greens on the go or as a healthy alternative to cocktails when entertaining.

4 celery stalks
3/4 cup parsley tops (loosely packed)
the juice of one lemon ( no less than 2 tablespoons)
1 cup water
pinch of sea salt
1 tsp agave
crushed ice

Put the celery in the blender. Dice it if you are using a regular blender, whole if you’ve got the vita mix. Add the parsley, lemon juice and water. Blend until smooth, no parsley left visible. Fill a small pitcher with 2 cups crushed ice, the agave and salt. Pour the mixture in the blender through a fine mesh sieve into the pitcher. Stir well and serve. Drink immediately so you get all the healthy enzymes of these detoxifying vegetables.
