Blue Lagoon Smoothie

Over the last month I have been cleansing my body of heavy metals. I removed the permanent retainers I got 8 years ago after having reconstructive jaw surgery from my mouth when I realized they were negatively impacting my health and causing inflammation to my face and jaw as well as throughout my body since the metal was in my mouth and then spread through my system.

That story is for another post, but the thing to know is that cilantro is a great herb for detoxing heavy metals. It helps remove heavy metals from the body by attracting heavy metals to specific compounds within the cilantro. Cilantro similar to Parsley binds to heavy metals and help you remove them from the body. These plants remove heavy metals literally by attracting these heavy metals to the plant in the gut.

So check out my detox smoothie I have been enjoying:

Blue Lagoon Smoothie


  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)

  • 1 handful of kale

  • ¼ cup of cilantro

  • 2 dates (optional)

  • extra blueberries and bee pollen optional toppings


In a blender add milk, blueberries, kale, cilantro, dates if desired and 4 ice cubes. Blend until desired consistency.

Pour smoothie into a bowl and top with blueberries and bee pollen to aid in allergy relief and a clear head (great for the crown chakra and connecting with source energy)

This bow is also filled with throat and heart chakra based foods so it is the perfect start to any day.
