Green Lemonade

Green “Lemonade”

Comments Bubble6 12 February, 2014

This is the ultimate cleansing drink. I have been prescribing this drink in my practice and making it for my family for over 10 years. Parsley is a blood cleanser and helps to aid digestion. It is a great source of fiber, calcium, Vitamin C, folic acid (an important B Vitamin), Vitamin K, Vitamin A (important in fighting viruses), and iron. *Special note: Do not consume this beverage daily if you are breast feeding as parsley can dry up milk supply.

Serves 3 or serves 1 for 3 days
APPROX. TIME 5 minutes


1 bunch organic parsley

3-4 cups filtered water

Organic lemon juice concentrate or juice from organic lemons to taste

Pure maple syrup to taste

Strong blender



Wash the parsley thoroughly. Cut off 1 inch from the stems of the parsley, making sure to remove any browned areas. Add entire bunch of parsley to the blender. If your blender is not of strong quality, pre chop the parsley before putting it into the blender. Add the water and blend until as smooth of consistency that you can get. Add the lemon juice and pure maple syrup by teaspoons to desired taste. I find that I don't need that much to make it delicious but my children like a little more (obviously). You can make this drink taste faintly like lemonade or make it a little sweeter as a treat. If you are unable to tolerate sweet, you can use a little bit of lemon juice only or add some stevia in addition.


If you are making this drink as part of a cleansing routine. Drink 1/3 of the drink daily for 3 days and make a new Green Lemonade on the 4th day. You can continue drinking this daily as a daily cleansing drink in addition to helping you keep your gastrointestinal system healthy and improving your nutrient intake.


  1. This is an awesome recipe! I like to make chia fresca with chia seed added to lemon, water, and maple syrup. We juice parsley, but I want to try this awesome blender recipe! Thanks.

      Thanks Kathy so much for posting this comment. I am happy to hear people are making the chia fresca and juicing parsley. Good for you for staying informed!

      Warmly, Dr. Black

  2. I’ve been making this, too! Sometimes I add a tiny knob of fresh ginger. Great picture.

      I am so glad you like it, Kerry! I love the ginger addition also. Warmly, Dr. Black

    Parsley is not available in India. Can we substitute coriander( Cilantro) leaves?

    • jessica black (Author)

      Yes you can use a combination of many greens including cilantro, kale, and others.

      Good luck. Dr. Black
