I must admit, I haven’t always been a fan of cilantro. Far from it actually.
I (intensely) disliked the taste of it when added to foods or even as a garnish.
There was even a blog called I HATE CILANTRO (maybe still is) with many followers that I blogged about, a long time ago.
But I’ve changed my mind about cilantro and in a big way, after reading about it’s many health benefits.
I also recently read about adding cilantro to smoothies and gave it a try.
Here’s one of my new fav smoothie recipes that includes cilantro:
1 C. blueberries or blackberries
small handful of cilantro leaves
3-4 T. natural vanilla yogurt
1/2 C. soy or almond milk
2 T. unsweetened shredded coconut
Thoroughly blend….and enjoy! 🙂
The great thing about this smoothie, you can’t really taste the cilantro, it just seems to “brighten” up the overall flavor of the smoothie, in a pleasing way. Fresh and tasty, going down the hatch. 😉
