Pineapple Avocado Cilantro Summer Smoothie

I know what you’re thinking already! Cilantro? In a smoothie? You probably had the same thought when you heard people were putting spinach in their smoothies but now it’s become so mainstream. Be open-minded. The smoothie actually turns green from the avocado, not so much the cilantro. I honestly came up with this recipe because my avocados were going bad and I had leftover cilantro from another recipe. Now, it’s my new favorite smoothie. The freshness from the added squeeze of lemon and punch from the cilantro makes me appreciate the beautiful summer weather and all of the fresh produce that’s available. Every time I drink it I feel like I am holding onto every last summer day that’s left!

1 sprig of cilantro
Juice of 1 small lemon wedge (1/8th of a lemon)
