Avocado is a great ingredient to use in green smoothies. They add creaminess and offer an abundance of healthy fats, vitamin A, beta-carotene and more. The fats found in avocados also help your body absorb the parsley’s vitamins more easily.
I used frozen bananas for this smoothie. If you like smoothies, I recommend always having a bag of frozen banana pieces in the freezer. Bananas are a key ingredient for my green smoothies and having them readily available is very convenient. If you have overly ripe bananas that may go to waste, simply peel and quarter them and toss in the freezer.
Avocado, Banana and Parsley Smoothie Recipe

In a blender, combine avocado, frozen bananas, parsley and coconut water. Blend on high until smooth and creamy.
