CILANTRO CITRUS DETOX
Makes 1-2 glasses // Prep Time: 15 minutes // Active Time: 5 minutes
- 2 cups filtered water
- 2 rounded tsp loose leaf or 2 sachets/bags green tea. We recommend using plain green tea's like Aesthete Tea's Green + Mint
- 1/4 cup freshly chopped cilantro (or mint)

How to make Cilantro Citrus Detox
Brew your green tea by heating the water to 175°F and steeping for 2-3 minutes. Then remove (strain) tea and set aside to cool to room temperature (about 15 minutes).
In a blender, combine the green tea, ice cubes (make green tea ice cubes by brewing green tea and freezing in an ice cube tray!), cilantro (or mint), cucumbers, lemon and lime juice, and if you wish, the jalapeño and/or ginger. Blend well and then either drink it straight or strain to remove the chunky bits. Enjoy the best lemon juice detox with the cilantro superfood and feel the cleanse.
