What I do: I buy several bunches of cilantro, cut off the bottoms where the dirt is, clean thoroughly, divide in half, put in freezer bags and freeze. The smoothie is honey, flavored yogurt, a bit of juice, some diced up fruit, and the frozen cilantro, sometimes an ice cube. Bananas are great to help negate the cilantro flavor as well. The pills are useless. Your recipe is up to you. I blend it on high until the drink is really smooth and their are no big hunks of cilantro in it. Actually can taste pretty good once you get it right.
