This smoothie, also recommended by Dr. Bob, again includes chia seeds as a centerpiece – this time with apples, cucumbers, and two vitamin-rich herbs: parsley and mint. 

Apple Cuke Parsley Mint


  • 1 cup freshly pressed apple juice
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons chia
  • 1 small diced green apple, such a granny smith (peeled if apple is not organic or skin is waxed)
  • ½ cup roughly chopped cucumber, peeled if waxed or bitter
  • 1 cup firmly packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 1 cup firmly packed fresh mint leaves.

Preparation: Combine and blend.
