1 avocado

1 cup packed parsley and cilantro leaves (combined)

1 jalapeño, ribs and seeds removed (optional)

1 stalk of celery (with leaves is ok)

4-5 small Swiss chard or hands full of spinach

½ cup water

½ cup olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

½ cup pistachios (you can sub other nuts or leave them out)


  1. Pulse all ingredients - except pistachios - in a food processor or VitaMix blender until incorporated.
