Morning smoothie

I begin every day with a green smoothie. This is a new thing that I have been doing as part of my effort to live a healthier life. It has all fresh ingredients, is delicious and hydrating. Serve it in a pretty glass. I am sipping one as we speak. For some of you, don't let the ingredients fool you. It is really sweet and yummy and I really encourage you to try it. See my recipe below. Enjoy and I hope you are having a great weekend!

Green Smoothie
(all FRESH ingredients)

Romain lettuce
1ripe banana
one honey crisp apple or 1 cup (approx.) chopped pineapple
low-fat yogurt (optional)

I make mine without the yogurt.  Fill the blender (or food processor) with fresh spinach, 1/2-1 cup of shredded Romain lettuce and 1/2 cup water mixed with crushed ice. If using blender grind until very smooth. Add the apple or pineapple or both if desired. Grind again until very smooth. Serve and enjoy.
