    This smoothy is great. I used only half a lemon. Since I didn’t have celery or parsley, I used 1 cup romaine and 1 cup watercrest. It was delicious!!!

      Wonderful, Carla! Thanks for the feedback! Glad it worked for you!

    This smoothie is delicious! I’ve become obsessed with ginger and it really has improved my digestive health. I used to suffer from acid reflux daily and now I rarely have any issues!

    I was wondering if anyone has tried this smoothie with kale added? I’d like to add some but I’m afraid of ruining it! Maybe a little won’t hurt?

    Thanks! :)

      Hey Stephanie! Thanks for sharing about your great experience with ginger! :) Try adding half of your leafy greens kale and the other half spinach to start off. :) Ease into kale if you aren’t use to it, also you can try baby kale, it is more mild that full grown kale. :)

    Love this smoothie! This may be my favorite – I prefer the less sweet smoothies and this one is perfect. I add banana for the kids to make it a bit sweeter for them.

    • SGS Rawkstar Jessie 7.23.2014 at 8:58 pm #

      Great idea, Danielle! How do the kids like it?

    hi I love to try the mango ginger smoothie, but I am allergic to mangos, what can a substitute for this?


    • SGS Rawkstar Shauna 7.14.2014 at 4:09 pm #

      Hi Lizette! You can totally sub in whatever you do enjoy – bananas, kiwi, oranges, are good ones. You can also make a combo of these fruits or others you like. :)

    I haven’t seen wheat grass in any recipies…you don’t use it?

    Hoy tome mi primer “smoothie” me preocupaba tener retortijones estomacales o deseos imparables de ir al baño, pero todo fue perfecto, mi estomago se porto muy bien, sin ningun efecto secundario. Estoy feliz, le perdi el temor a los batidos verdes, pues francamente tenia muchas reservas sobre su sabor, son DELICIOSOS

    Can ground ginger be used? Are there any major differences?

    • SGS Rawkstar Dan 3.18.2014 at 1:28 pm #

      It can be, Stephanie, though we’d prefer to use ginger paste as the second option :-) That can usually be found near the herb section in grocery stores.

    I was a little skeptical, but this was delicious! I substituted the celery for kiwi (my celery had wilted :() and put in lemon juice instead of a full lemon, but the ginger and the parsley in this really pops! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Yolanda 10.5.2013 at 6:37 am #

    I tried the Mango Ginger smoothie this morning-Loved it! I noticed a nice minty breathe from the parsley…great recipe!

  10. Merrijo L 8.7.2013 at 9:07 am #

    Hi, I made a parsley, ginger, frozen honeydew, watermelon, and unsweetened almond milk today. Pretty tasty. Love your smoothies!

  11. Khurshid 6.10.2013 at 8:55 pm #

    I’m wondering if I need to peel the ginger before adding it to the smoothies?

    • Jadah and Jen 6.11.2013 at 6:19 am #

      Hi :-) It isn’t a necessity, but we prefer to peel.

    • caperucita 9.4.2013 at 12:44 am #

      I’d peel it unless it’s organic ginger – you never know otherwise!

  12. Cathy 5.13.2013 at 11:36 am #

    Do the ingredients (bananas/pear/apple/mango/kiwi, etc) need to be peel prior to blending it?

    • Jadah and Jen 5.13.2013 at 1:26 pm #

      Hi Cathy! We would say yes to the bananas, mangos, and possibly the kiwi. Some people like to leave the skin on the kiwi, and some do not :-)

  13. Leah 5.8.2013 at 10:04 pm #

    I am new to making green smoothies and I was wondering when using parsley, spinach, kale, etc. do you peel the leaves off the stalks before you blend? Also can you freeze these types of ingredients to use later? How long are the smoothies good in the fridge if there are leftovers?

    • Jadah and Jen 5.9.2013 at 5:28 am #

      Hi Leah!
      Lots of great questions :-)

      Leaves off the stalks: We try to leave out the big parts of the stalk where no leaves are attached. This part of the kale, spinach, etc. is pretty bitter, and we don’t want bitter!

      Freezing ingredients: Freezing leafy greens are different than freezing herbs. With leafy greens like spinach and kale you can rinse them, take them off the stalk, put them in an air tight bag, and freeze them. With herbs you will want to rinse them, chop them up a bit, put them in ice cube trays with a little water, and freeze them. This will preserve the herb a little better.

      Leftovers: You can keep any leftovers in an air tight container in your fridge for 24-48 hours.

      Hope we answered all your questions :-)

    hellooooo J&J……i was wondering if you could let me know what would be a good smoothie recipe for detoxing? i have a friend who wants to detox, i have let her know if she starts drinking green smoothies to her day she will be detoxing in a mild kind of way, but if you could let me know what greens & fruit would be best i would be most appreciative xoxo

  15. jazmin 4.21.2013 at 12:49 pm #

    Very yummy! love the the different ingredients. none of my fruits were frozen so I added frozen blueberries and cilantro instead of parsley. I love love love cilantro! thanks for the great recipe. I would have never thought of it myself. :-D

  16. LadyA_321 4.15.2013 at 2:46 pm #

    This was my first smoothies I made… I used a little too much parsley :-( so I added some strawberries and bananas to hide the taste a little.

  17. Would you be capable of information myself to your website owner or person whom looks after your website, I must determine it would be simple to be considered a guests poster.

  18. Charri 4.8.2013 at 2:13 pm #

    I just made this smoothie. I dont have ginger at home so I used cayann pepper, I wasnt hungry, but Im going to do some work out and I needed something to keep me going for long jogging. Therefore I made half portion of this recipe. :) It was so tasty, I stored it to my smoothie recipes box.

  19. Debra 4.3.2013 at 12:15 pm #

    Wow I just made this smoothie…..refreshing..everything complimented each other….I used half a banana and a tad bit of ground cinamon..will make again. Day 3 and counting!

  20. Jessica 4.1.2013 at 1:20 pm #

    This smoothie was awesome! It was incredibly refreshing, and very light. The flavors were well balanced, and the parsley actually subtly enhanced it rather than stand out (like I was worried they’d do).

  21. Joy 3.28.2013 at 6:24 pm #

    Can you sub celery for something else? I don’t really like celery.

    • Jen H 3.28.2013 at 7:58 pm #

      My daughter is the same way— not a fan of celery. Feel free to use more greens as a replacement.

  22. Joy 3.28.2013 at 6:20 pm #

    Can you sub the celery for something else? I am not a fan of celery.

  23. Tonya 3.10.2013 at 9:10 am #

    I left out the agave, and I love it! It’s zesty and refreshing yet also soothing on the stomach first thing in the morning.

  24. Katie 3.10.2013 at 8:32 am #

    This smoothie was great! The recipe has good proportions. I used half an orange instead of the lemon, as I know from the past that I don’t love a lot of lemon in my smoothies, and cilantro instead of parsley, as that’s what I had on hand. I was a bit worried about how the texture would come out, but it was refreshing and delicious. Thanks ladies – your site is awesome!

    • Jen H 3.10.2013 at 5:15 pm #

      You are very welcome Katie. And cilantro is one of my favorites in a smoothie— so yummy!

  25. Anna 3.8.2013 at 5:12 pm #

    This smoothie friggin’ rules.

  26. Maria 2.25.2013 at 8:44 am #

    This was so yummy! I will definately use this again!

  27. Regina J 2.21.2013 at 9:05 am #

    This smoothie was tasty. I only used a teaspoon of agave. Very refreshing but i made mine with 1 cup of mango and 1 cup of peaches

    • Jen H 2.22.2013 at 10:43 am #

      Yum! Peaches are so yummy in smoothies. Love that you mixed it up to suite your taste buds— this is exactly what I like to do too Regina.

  28. Dawn N. 2.21.2013 at 6:17 am #

    This gave my taste buds a nice surprise. I didnt think it would taste very good. But it did. I did have to make a few changes though. I used spinach because I didnt have parsley, honey instead of agave and I didnt have lemon so I left it out. Very good!

  29. annette 2.17.2013 at 7:04 pm #

    Wow that sounds very refreshing. anyone have a comment on the taste

    • Christin 2.18.2013 at 7:13 am #

      I didn’t like the taste very much. It was to citrus-y too me. Very very tangy. Maybe if you cut the lemon in half it would be better


    • Jen H 2.18.2013 at 8:01 am #

      Hi Annette. This green smoothie is one that I would enjoy once a week to change things up. It’s much more refreshing thanks to the cucumber and lemon‚ which is nice. The ginger is pretty mild and doesn’t overpower the smoothie, but rather complements it with a slight bite. The celery is definitely the main taste, so if you aren’t a fan of celery you probably won’t like this. Yet I really enjoyed it.

    • Jennifer 2.26.2013 at 7:00 am #

      I was nervous about the flavor as well, with all the weird ingredients in it; but I do not think its too citrus-y, rather, spicy with the ginger flavor. I think I added slightly too much ginger, a little ginger goes a long way, for sure! Overall, I did enjoy it, and it will be on my re-make list in the future.

      • Jen H 2.26.2013 at 7:02 pm #

        Yeah, a little ginger sure does go a long way. I’ve learned that by personal experience too. :)

  30. Kimberlie 2.15.2013 at 7:52 pm #

    Would raw honey work in place of agave?

    • Jen H 2.18.2013 at 7:46 am #

      Hi Kimberlie. You can definitely substitute agave for honey— or you can even leave it out if you don’t want it too sweet (which is what I did when I made this last week.)
