This pineapple cilantro green smoothie may sound a bit weird (cilantro in a smoothie?), but hear me out. This combo WORKS. I am telling you. I crave this combo every single day. This smoothie is packed full of nutrients from the fresh herbs, ginger, pineapple, greens & more!
Why you have to try this Pineapple Cilantro Green Smoothie
Now I know cilantro in a smoothie sounds, well, weird? But you have to trust me on this one! It’s really refreshing! It works really well with the ginger & pineapple in this recipe & all the flavours really compliment each other in my opinion.
This smoothie is packed full with nourishing & good for you ingredients. I find the ginger extra helpful for my digestion & overall this smoothie really gives me a nice boost & pick-me-up in the morning or the afternoon!
Ingredients you will need for this Pineapple Cilantro Green Smoothie
- fresh ginger
- fresh cilantro
- lime, juiced
- frozen pineapple
- water or milk of choice
- collagen peptides (optional)
How long does it take to make?
It takes me about 10 minutes start to finish to prep any ingredients & blend them up. If you want to make a double batch you can have some leftover for the ext day to enjoy, no prep required!
Does this Pineapple Cilantro Green Smoothie have protein?
I like to add a serving of collagen peptides to this smoothie when I have it. It adds a flavourless boost of protein & its absorption is improved from the vitamin C in the fruits & veg.
This is totally optional & this smoothie would work without it as well. You can alternatively also add a scoop of your preferred protein powder of choice, but keep in mind this may alter the flavour. I like collagen as it is flavourless, blends well & doesn’t affect the texture.
Can I store the leftovers?
If you have any leftovers or want to make a double batch for the following days you can store this smoothie in a mason jar in the fridge. Simply mix or shake before drinking it & enjoy!

I have been making the Vitality Smoothie by Kimberly Snyder everyday, and subbing pineapple for her orange in the recipe.
Its exactly the same as this recipe.
That sounds absolutely amazing Anne! Orange sounds great too 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
