Cilantro Pineapple Smoothie -Detox Smoothie

Cilantro has quickly become my new favourite herb and is now a stable on the grocery list.  Cilantro plays an important role in removing heavy metals and other toxins from our bodies.  We usually add cilantro to many Indian dishes and sauces but have now been adding it to our smoothies/shakes.  Cilantro is also high in folic-acid, vitamin C and A.
*see below on how to keep Cilantro Fresh

  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1 cup spinach or kale
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 banana (fresh or frozen)
  • handful ice cubes (optional)

  1. Add all ingredients into a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Serve.
* to keep Cilantro fresher longer, keep it in a glass jar in the fridge with some water and lightly cover with a plastic bag.
