  • Why do I like it?

The flavor is fresh and bright.  The pineapple and banana compliment each other perfectly. There is enough green to make it healthy but not grassy tasting.  I like adding just a sliver of avocado for thickness.  Some recipes add more and the texture is too thick and slimy for me.  This one has just the right amount for my taste. Someone said it was the best green smoothie they ever tasted from my kitchen!

  • What did I change from the original recipe?

I didn't measure the parsley, just added a handful.  I used a 1" sliver of avocado.  I had some cucumber to use up, so I added a 3" piece.  I also added some lemon juice, about 2 tablespoons.
