Spicy cilantro smoothies are delightful, and make a great snack that helps detoxify the body. The addition of bananas to the smoothie makes this cilantro drink naturally sweet. Try drinking this cilantro smoothie as a health drink with 100% natural ingredients.
Cilantro smoothie is a refreshing drink in summer. It’s a delicious mix of limeade and truly enjoying it like you’re on vacation, fun isn’t it! Moreover, this drink contains an important spice for health – ginger.
Cilantro Smoothie can also be put in popsicle molds, this will be even more fun, you can freeze it for a more enchanting taste.
What Makes this Limeade Recipe Healthier?
This traditional limeade drink contains refined sugar. Sugar is indeed worrying because it can cause various health problems including diabetes and obesity. Even sugar can also cause mood disorders and stress. It’s like that and it makes sense, but it’s different with this smoothie recipe, we use natural sweeteners or natural sugar, the natural sugar we mean is bananas. You can also sweeten it with fruits like dates, maple syrup, honey. So, avoid using refined sugar because it is not good for health.
Fresh Cilantro in a Smoothie
Cilantro is a natural ingredient that many love and some hate. Whoever you are, whether you love or hate it, coriander is a food that is rich in health benefits and you cannot deny it. This cilantro smoothie is rich in benefits because besides the benefits of the cilantro, you also get the benefits of the banana, or other natural ingredients you use.
Among the benefits of cilantro is detoxification of heavy metals in the body. Cilantro is also a source of vitamin K which is beneficial in blood clotting and improving circulation. I think smoothies made from this ingredient are delicious too, especially when mixed with green smoothies or on your tacos
Fresh Ginger goes well with Lime
Besides using bananas, dates, coriander smoothies also use ginger, an important spice for digestion. If you have morning sickness, ginger drink is the sedative. Ginger is able to soothe your stomach and make it comfortable.
Now you add this ginger in your smoothie, and consume it regularly to comfort your stomach.
Ginger is also a useful herb to fight inflammation, this is the reason why I like it. Inflammation in the body can cause various types of diseases in the body, including asthma and arthritis.
So, one way to prevent the body from fighting disease is to get rid of inflammation. I started fighting this inflammation bit by bit by consuming citrus cilantro smoothies regularly. It tastes good and is refreshing, especially in summer.
