Instructions
 

  • After you peel the lemon and the orange, throw them into a high-speed blender.
  • Using your hands just tear off a big handful of cilantro (don't worry about de-stemming) and throw that in as well.
  • Fresh coconut water tastes great in this smoothie and adds electrolytes but if you don't have it on hand, use fresh spring water.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients. Blend on high until completely smooth and creamy.
