What You Will Need:
3 tomatoes
2 apples
A cup of parsley
5 sprigs of watercress.

Cut apples into wedges.
Be sure to remove the core and the seeds of the apple.
Put all ingredients into the blender or food processor and mix for about three minutes or until smooth.

This recipe can make up to 4 and a half cups of green smoothies. The juice may be stored in the refrigerator for a day or two, but the presence of apple in this recipe will darken the juice in just a few hours.
