How To Use Romaine In A Green Smoothie
I use the entire head, including outer leaves. Wash each leaf and then add to your smoothie. I recommend that you add the fruit and blend it first, then add the lettuce so that it blends easily.
Because of it’s delicate flavor, lettuce is easily masked by just about any fruit you can think of. My usual recipe calls for 2-3 bananas, 1 mango, 1 tablespoon of flax, a few frozen strawberries (or 1/2 cup frozen blueberries) and an entire head of romaine. Now THAT is the breakfast of champions!
