Why is Cilantro used in a green smoothie detox recipe?

Cilantro isn’t just for your guacamole and salsa! We love blending cilantro in our green smoothies. Adding this leafy herb brings a unique flavor to this sweet and creamy detox green smoothie. Cilantro, also known as fresh coriander, helps the body naturally get rid of heavy metals and other toxins. It’s high in vitamin K, which is important for blood clotting. Also, cilantro is a good source of vitamins C and A. (Don’t worry – if you’re someone who can’t stand parsley, you can substitute parsley. It doesn’t have quite the same benefits that cilantro has, but it’s a great replacement.)

We’ve added some of our favorite tropical fruits – mango, pineapple, and avocado. They add natural sweetness and make this extra creamy and delicious. Not to mention, the dietary fiber from the greens and fruits helps keep things moving along in the digestive tract. The healthy fats from the avocado help keep you feeling full and satisfied, but also help the body absorb nutrients from the other ingredients.

Drink this yummy green smoothie detox recipe for a great start to your morning, as a snack, lunch, or even for dinner!

    Hi there! Great recipe!! Never thought if putting cilantro in a smoothie. – but why only fresh cilantro? I won’t use it a lot so just put it in my freezer so I can just put in my smoothies. Is that ok?

    • SGS Rawkstar Jess says:

      Hey Sarah! Yes, it’s def ok to freeze your cilantro so it doesn’t go bad and use it that way in your smoothies. That’s the next best thing to fresh and if it means saving your herbs from going bad, it’s the best thing! Here’s a great post I think you’ll like- How to Freeze Spinach. I know it says how to freeze spinach but this method will work for any leafy green, including herbs. Happy blending! 🙂

  3. Paricia says:

    how much of this should you drink in a day ?

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      You can drink up to two of these a day if you want. Or you could drink one and save it for the next day. Whatever you feel like doing!! 🙂

      Happy blending!

  4. Barb says:

    Thank you for this recipe. I was told to eat cilantro to help detox my body, but dislike it. This is a perfect way for me to get it into my diet. The first half of the drink proved to be a little bland; however, I added 3 medjool dates to the second half and it was perfect for me!

    • SGS Rawkstar Carissa says:

      Hey Barb,

      So happy that this recipes helps you get the cilantro that you need in your diet!

      You did exactly what we like to suggest. Adding an all natural sweeter like dates or honey is the way to go 🙂

      Hey Andrea,

      If your 1 year old likes the taste I would totally let them have some!! 🙂

  7. Tina Day says:

    All I can say is it’s delicious. Never thought of using cilantro in a smoothie, but I will be from now on. Added some Greek yogurt, flaxseed, and almond milk rather than water it was a little thick, but delicious.Thanks so much for the recipe

  8. Krista Wooley says:

    omg. Cilantro in smoothies. YUM. For a person who is still on the fence about lots of cilantro, I was worried about this smoothie, but boy was it amazing! I’m not even kidding- I will be making cilantro friendly smoothies from now on!

  9. Patricia says:

    Oh wow. I didn’t expect this green smoothie will be so delicious and simple! Thank you

    Good Morning!

    My friend has concerns about doing a detox. In his words, he doesn’t have time to be “taking for two days straight”. Will this Cilantro-Mango smoothie “inconvenience” him like other detox options?


    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi MsVal,

      Great question! Everyone’s body is different, and while this recipe will help cleanse your body – don’t worry, adding just one Cilantro-Mango Detox green smoothie to your day won’t have you running to the restroom non-stop.

      Happy blendin’!
