Cilantro Detox Juice Recipe (2024)

When I think of spring, I think of spring cleaning which makes me think of detoxing.

This brings green juice to mind, and I have the perfect go-to green drink for you.

Cilantro Detox Juice Recipe

This Cilantro Detox Juice is packed with incredible phytonutrients that have healing properties.

What is Cilantro Good For?

Cilantro chelates heavy metals from the body, which is important since I have the MTHFR genetic mutation which can impair detoxification.

Is Cilantro Good for Cleansing?

Since cilantro is so great for cleansing, I drank a quart of this green juice every day when I was diagnosed with heavy metal toxicity in 2004.

Rather than doing medical chelation, which I thought would be too hard on my body, my doctor suggested that I eat A LOT of cilantro.

What is Detox Juice Good For?

In addition to helping detox heavy metals, cilantro also helps build healthy skin and hair and reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

Further, it contains antimicrobial properties, which is likely why it’s been widely used in cooking for cultures in warmer climates, prior to the development of refrigeration.

Cilantro Health Benefits

The health benefits of cilantro are numerous. This superfood contains compounds that reduce the risk of:

  • Heart Disease
  • Obesity
  • Diabetes

Further, cilantro contains a substance called dodecenal. This antimicrobial compound is thought to protect the body against infections caused by food spoilage.

Healthy Green Detox Juice Recipe

For this healthy juice recipe, I use all of the cilantro, both leaves, and stems.

I also do this for cooking because it stretches my food dollars, and reduces prep work and food waste.

The stems of cilantro taste every bit as good as the leaves!

Is Cilantro Parsley?

I’m often asked if cilantro and parsley are the same thing. To this, I must reply with a resounding NO.

While both are very bright leafy greens that grow on long, thin stems, to me they taste nothing alike.

Many people confuse flat-leaf parsley with cilantro because they look so similar. Parsley is more of a Mediterranean herb while cilantro is often used in Mexican, Thai, and Indian food.

Both parsley and cilantro have numerous health benefits. Herbs in general are packed with micronutrients and healthy anti-inflammatory compounds.

Is Juicing Good for You?

When it comes to juicing some people worry about losing the fiber.

If that concerns you, blend your veggies in a high-speed blender such as a vitamix or blendtec.

I haven’t tried that, so I’m not sure if it will taste as good as my Cilantro Detox Juice.

I get plenty of fiber since I eat many servings of vegetables each day. For me, juicing is like taking a supplement.

While juice is not a whole food, that doesn’t mean it isn’t extremely healthy.

Pushing superfoods through the juicer gives me extra micronutrients that my digestive system would not have space for.

Health Benefits of Juicing

Because our soil is depleted, even organic food has diminished nutritional value.

Juicing is my insurance, it may not be for everyone, but it’s perfect for me.

The Best Juicer

You’ll notice I reference my Breville Juicer not only in this recipe but quite often on the site. I find this is one of the best bang for your buck juicers.

Better yet? I’ve had mine for ten years now with no issues.

Easy Juicing Recipe

When I make my Cilantro Detox Juice I leave the skin on the produce.

When I spoke to the company (Breville) they advised me not to push unpeeled citrus through it as this may decrease the lifespan of the juicer.

Still, I leave the skins on, as I want all of the bioflavonoids found in the citrus skin.

Green Juice Recipes for Detoxing

As you can see, I love juicing and I adore my healing Cilantro Detox Juice! If you’re looking for more healthy green juice recipes try these too.

Mojito Green Juice

My Mojito Green Juice is a total winner. Mint, parsley, lime, ginger, cucumbers, and apple come together in this infusion for the ultimate refreshment.

My inspiration for this Mojito Green Juice was from a favorite website of mine, Dr. Frank Lipman. I hope you’re inspired to try this detoxifying delight.

Simple Green Juice

As the name suggests, my Simple Green Juice is just that, simple.

With only three healthy ingredients –parsley, cucumbers, and lemon you’ll be surprised by how flavorful it is!

Green Lemonade

My Green Lemonade contains similar ingredients to the above recipes, however, this one is supercharged with kale. Anytime I can sneak kale into my diet I’m in!

  • Sip slowly to enjoy and absorb all the benefits of your juice
