This Cilantro Limeade Green Smoothie is a great natural detoxifying beverage that's loaded with nutrients and tart n' tangy flavor.
Cilantro is one of those things that people either love or hate. Whichever side of the fence you sit on in respect to cilantro, it's hard to deny that its health benefits. Also called Chinese parsley and fresh coriander, this leafy green herb helps the body detoxify itself of heavy metals. It is also a good source of vitamin K which helps with blood clotting. We think it tastes great too, especially blended into a green smoothie.
This Cilantro Limeade smoothie also contains ginger which is good for settling the tummy. We also love the numerous anti-inflammatory benefits of ginger. To sweeten up this smoothie and make it nice and creamy, we use bananas. Oh, and did I mention how refreshing Cilantro Limeade is on a hot day? Totally freeze some bananas to blend up for a slushy, healthy treat.
