Okay, okay, you are reading this and thinking, Cilantro Smoothie? Well, me too. But what is life without trying new things and that also means trying new smoothies. You will see some familiar ingredients such as strawberries and papaya but also some not-so-familiar ingredients such as almond milk (see below) which can be difficult to find.

You can make almond milk by soaking 1 cup of almonds for a few hours. When finished soaking, strain them and blend them with 3 cups of filtered water. Strain the resulting mixture through a nut milk bag. You can add sweetener or vanilla for additional flavor. To store, place in the refrigerator in an air-tight container. You can also buy almond milk in a health food store, but it will not be raw.

Dr. Yoshiaki Omura discovered that mercury levels in the urine increased after an individual ate Vietnamese soup, which contains cilantro. Dr. Omura’s further research discovered that the herb cilantro could accelerate the excretion of mercury, lead, and aluminum from the body. Contributed by: Rhio www.RawfoodInfo.com

    Great smoothie! I didn’t have coconut water, so I used filtered water and a bit of agave.
