I'm sure plenty of people have done this, but my husband and I like to think we are the creators of this delicious and cleansing ginger and parsley orange juice drink using fresh ginger and fresh parsley. Yum!
Benefits of ginger include:
Benefits of parsley include:
For the drink this morning we used orange juice from concentrate and added water. You can dilute your OJ with more water and ice if you're concerned about "drinking your calories" but more water and ice will make for less of an OJ taste and will be a bit more un-palatable. You can also use fresh squeezed OJ.
For two servings with leftovers for the kids (and yes, my kids drink this) we do about 1/4 of a frozen concentrate OJ juice can. Add water and ice, Add a 1/2 to a full bunch of of fresh curly parsley and a thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger. I love the spiciness of ginger, but if you have more conservative tastebuds, then use less ginger. Always err on the side of caution when trying a new flavor. You can always add more ginger and parsley and re-blend!
Blend well and enjoy!
Other variations we do with this drink include adding other greens like spinach or celery in addition to the parsley and ginger. I also like to add some probiotics to turn it into a probiotic drink!
