Parsley Cucumber Avocado Smoothie

1 cucumber, peeled or not, cubed (skin can give a bitter flavor)

bunch of parsley

1/2 avocado
hemp seeds or powder, 2-4 tbsp. 
2 dates
1/2 cup or more hemp milk
pinch of salt

in vitamix or high powered blender place cucumber, 3/4 cup water and blend. add more water if it is stuck.
keep blender going and through the opening of the top cover add parsley little by little.
let it blend until smooth.
add dates, hemp, salt, hemp milk. 
add avocado, this will thicken it a bit, add a little more water if too thick to your liking.
add some ice to blend and to chill it.
a beautiful green smoothie this makes. enjoy!

Hmmmm... Is this savory? Salty? Bitter? Good?

I love avocado & greens in my smoothie, but I always cut them with some fruit for sweetness.

Hello Joanne, it is good, not salty or bitter at all. You can add more dates or a fruit like mangoe to sweeten it. Love the hydration of the cucumber and the creaminess of the avocado.
