Due to pregnancy food aversions, I haven't been able to eat eat salad so I started eating it in smoothies! This smoothie tastes great and gives you at least three servings of veggies!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Put romaine lettuce into the bottom of a blender pitcher; add enough milk to cover completely and blend on High until smooth.

  • Drop one strawberry at a time into the blender while still running on High and allow the berry to blend completely before adding the next. Blend one banana chunk at a time into the mixture in the same manner as the strawberries. Thin the smoothie with additional milk to keep smoothie blending properly. Blend vanilla extract into the smoothie.

Cook's Note:

If it needs more sweetener, you can start with a teaspoon honey, sugar, or agave, what ever you want to sweeten it.

I was a little skeptical of this one because although I make tons of smoothies with greens added I've never made one with Romaine lettuce. I made this exactly as written including using the vanilla extract. It was sweet enough for my liking because the banana I used was very ripe. The overall flavor was good however I think I prefer my smoothies with kale or spinach instead. This was a very nice change of pace though! Read More

I serve it at school for children to sample. To average the rating I got I have to say it's OK.! Read More

I didn't have strawberry's so I used frozen blueberries and raspberry's added a tsp of fresh squeezed lemon 1 TBS of powdered PB8 peanut powder and used unsweetened almond milk. It came out very good. You can always adjust the sweetness by adding Monk Fruit or some other natural sweetener to your liking or dietary needs. Read More
