Cilantro Limeade Smoothie


This Cilantro Limeade Green Smoothie is a great natural detoxifying beverage that’s loaded with nutrients and tart n’ tangy flavor.

Cilantro Limeade

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.

What makes this Cilantro Limeade Recipe the Best?

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.

    I love this smoothie! The first time I made it, I found myself thinking, “this is okay, but I don’t know if I could drink another one of these.” And then I started absolutely craving them! I don’t really love banana-based smoothies but the lime, cilantro and ginger really take over the flavor. I would recommend being a little careful on the ginger, because if you add too much it’s very bitter. Start with a bit, taste, and then add more if needed.

    Thanks for the leafy love, Tiffany! Not a fan of banana? We’ve got you covered! Some great substitutes are mango, papaya, pears, unsweetened applesauce, chia seeds, nut butters, fresh dates, and avocado (won’t add sweetness, but the creaminess we love).

    I could understand you, I do not like combination banana+water, that’s why I always add almond milk ! This smoothy is fantastic! Thank you!

    Do you add the whole lime? Skin on?

    Hi Ainsley,

    I usually add a small amount of the peel. It’s packed with nutrients, but the oils in the skin can sometimes irritate your stomach, so starting small is the way to go. Learn more about adding peels to your green smoothie here…
