Cilantro reigns supreme when it comes to juicing. Not only is it rich in essential minerals, it just tastes plain old good. It’s a little zesty, a little floral and a tiny bit sweet. It pushes your boring ol’ veggie juice over the edge. I have heard that some people hate the taste of cilantro because of their genetics. I think I have the gene that makes you obsessed with it. DNA is weird.
This juice combo is my favourite. Ya got pineapple which adds the sweet, cucumber which adds the mellow, lime which add the tang and finally, cilantro; which adds the “yes please”! (You can quote me on that line)
Of course, if you are one of those people who just can’t handle cilantro, use parsley, mint or even basil!
For one rather tall glass of juice, I used:
- 1/4 of a whole pineapple
- 1 whole english cucumber
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- 1 lime
Fresh juice is the best way to start the morning. It makes me feel refreshed and buzzy.
