Cilantro Lemonade

Course: cocktail

Servings: 3 cups

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch cilantro, about 2 cups packed
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice, from 1-2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water

Instructions

  • Combine the cilantro with the lemon juice, honey, salt and water in a blender and purée for 3 minutes. The drink will be a rich green color with a beautiful white foam on top. I enjoy drinking the lemonade as it is, with the cilantro pulp, but you can strain it through a sieve or tea strainer before serving, if you like. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Notes

NOTE: You can drink cilantro lemonade on a daily or weekly basis to stay cool in hot weather or to support liver and digestive function and gentle detoxification. It also makes a nice seasonal tonic to help the body transition from colder to warmer weather.
