About this Recipe
Chlorophyll is a green pigment that helps plants to make energy and by consuming them, it can do the same for humans, as well as supporting our gut health and immune system.

3 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley

1 orange, flesh only, white pith & pips removed

60g fresh spinach leaves
50-100g ice cubes
50-100ml coconut water
