In our house, this cilantro blueberry detox smoothie is referred to as our “brain cleansing” smoothie.
It’s packed with fresh cilantro (or coriander to us Aussies), and wild blueberries, with a dash of spirulina powder for good measure.
These are some of the tops foods recommended by Medical Medium as being good for cleaning heavy metals out of the mid-brain.
The banana and orange make the smoothie sweet and creamy, and also help to pull together the flavours so that the cilantro and spirulina flavours are not too overpowering.
If you’ve read Medical Medium before, you might notice that I haven’t included the recommended barley grass juice extract powder or Atlantic dulse in this recipe, and that’s because:
A) I didn’t have any on hand when I created this recipe, and
B) I wanted to make sure that I created something that my 16-year-old son would be happy to drink.
Despite his adventurous taste buds, I’m not sure that “seaweed flavour” would go down too well!
I actually make enough of this each day for three of us to drink a 300ml glass each, and the only reason I don’t do 4 glasses’ worth is because my daughter is 10.
But if you want to start cleaning out your brain and getting it working even better than ever before, then here’s a great smoothie that combines some awesome detoxifying ingredients, while also tasting pretty amazing!
I look forward to my “brain cleaning” smoothie every day, and so do my husband and son.
And Paul (my husband) even said that when he started drinking this, he could feel his brain sharpening up and working better.
In the first few days of drinking this, my son and I also noticed specific parts of our brains reacting to the smoothie about half an hour after drinking it, so I’m confident that it’s having an effect.
And it doesn’t hurt that it taste pretty amazing as well.
