Time for another green smoothie! This time this beauty booster is packed with extra antioxidants from a green tea base but also a ton (seriously...chewable) fiber from pears. Like spunky? The ginger adds major kick for a wakeup call but also soothes digestion. And if you think parsley is just some green fluff restaurants add to plates for color, you'll love that it's actually also high in antioxidants. So give it some credit!
