Cilantro Pineapple Smoothie

Colin’s visit to Michigan last week resulted in more than just some much needed family time. His mother made this unusual and simple smoothie and Colin came back excited for us to blend up a few glasses ourselves. This frothy vegan cooler has such a unique flavor, unlike any other smoothie recipe I’ve tried.

Cilantro Pineapple Smoothie

Makes about 3 12-oz servings

Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 whole pineapple
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro


  1. Cut up the pineapple into chunks, discarding the tough core. (If you’ve never worked with this spiky fruit before, here’s how to cut up a pineapple.)
  2. Add the pineapple chunks and cilantro (stems and all) into a blender.
  3. Blend until frothy. (You may need to add some water to get the mix going properly.)
  4. Serve in a tall glass.

That’s it! This smoothie is both sweet and tart, and I found it a little spicy as well. I sucked it down so fast my tongue got a bit rough and irritated from the acidic pineapple, so beware—this healthy smoothie is best sipped casually.
