Secret Ingredient Smoothie


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!

Prep Time:
10 mins
Total Time:
10 mins
2 cups


  • 3 cups chopped romaine lettuce

  • cup milk, or more as needed

  • 4 frozen strawberries, or more to taste

  • 1 frozen banana, cut into chunks

  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract, or to taste (Optional)


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

  2. 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.
