lettuce have a smoothie!

Green Lettuce Smoothie

I found a giant bag of chopped romaine lettuce marked off by 30%. We typically don’t eat that much salad around here… at least not in winter. Still, I couldn’t resist the price!

I decided to try putting it in a smoothie. But before using perfectly good ingredients on something that might be awful, I did some googling to see if lettuce in smoothies is even a thing. It is so I decided to give it a go. I was delightfully surprised! You can really pack a lot of lettuce into a smoothie and not even notice the taste. Compare that to kale. I can barely a few chopped pieces of kale in before I turn up my nose.

Can you believe it? A Dietitian who doesn’t like kale?

I know. Forgive me.

Why It’s A Smart Choice

This recipe is so delightful. It’s a beautiful light green but doesn’t taste green. Know what I mean? 

It also manages to pack 15.5g of protein into a measly 218 calorie drink! If you’re looking for a 30g breakfast, eat both servings and you’re still only taking in 436 calories. 

Looking for more high fibre high protein breakfasts? I know I am. Which is why I wrote this ebook. Go check it out!
