Cilantro Power! Who Knew? ;<)

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. 😉

Are you a smoothie fan?
