Mango, Banana, dash of orange juice …. and why not… Romaine Lettuce! Inspired by my friend Jen who is all about exercise and only putting clean into her body. I decided to experiment with lettuce this afternoon after following her weight lose journey. This recipe was using what I had on hand. As I grabbed the orange juice from the refrigerator I couldn’t help but grab a few leaves of romaine that was harvested this morning from my garden that seems to be on every shelf of my refrigerator. Why Not? This is going to be my version of the Mango Lettuce Smoothie Recipe.

1/2 cup fresh or frozen pineapple.

Lettuce In My Garden
Late June Raised Bed Filled With Lettuce and Blooms
I’ve taken many photos of this raised bed filled with lettuce just to hang on to it’s spring beauty. I know this lush lettuce has numbered days with the heat of summer arriving. For now my family and I will enjoy the flavor of home grown lettuce as we enjoy it daily. I could eat something with lettuce in it three times a day for the rest of my life if I could keep it fresh like this. Now if I could just cut those zero carbs out of my diet…. well…. that is another story.
By the way…. this smoothie was super yummy!
I would love to hear from you so please comment below and tell me if you’d consider using lettuce in your smoothie.
