I love the creamy, tropical flavor and bite of ginger in this smoothie! I also love the benefits that it gives with ingredients like cilantro. While cilantro has great culinary versatility and offers delicious flavor, it also provides many health advantages and detoxifying properties.
Cilantro is a good source of fiber, flavonoids and phytonutrients, as well as, vitamin A, K, calcium, iron and potassium. It can help remove heavy metals from the body, decrease urinary tract infections, improve blood sugar, lower anxiety, protect against food borne illness, and improve digestive distress.Print
