I am trying to get into green smoothies. The only leafy green that I had in the house was organic romaine lettuce. So, this morning I gave this a whirl, and was pleasantly surprised!

Recipe Directions

Put the romaine leaves in the blender with some water. Blend until there are no more little green pieces floating. I slowly add the water. Then put in the pineapple chunks and blend away. And then the banana goes in and gets blended. I just like to add each ingredient separately to blend thoroughly. You may have to add more water depending on the consistency that you like.

This is better than you think. I tried something like this with shredded coconut and it was way too thick to drink! I also made one with way too much beet! Don't put watermellon and kale together- you get brown mush! Congrats!

This was SO YUMMY! You received the honor of providing me with my first Green Smoothie, and what a wonderful thing it was! lol, I had it for breakfast today, and I've not had this much energy in a LONG time - with no coffee or anything! Thank you so much for this great recipe - I will definitely be using this again! lol (I'm excited about my smoothie this morning, can you tell? :D)

I think that's the brilliance of green smoothies - start with a blank green canvas (romaine, spinach, kale, etc) and then just start adding colors to the canvas :)
