This green smoothie recipe is adapted from Victoria Boutenko’s book Green Smoothie Revolution. Combining romaine lettuce, strawberries, along with cashew nuts and coconut milk, this has to be my heartiest and creamiest smoothies yet! I typically make it in the morning if I don’t have time to prepare a proper breakfast because it’s so filling. But whatever time you enjoy it, you’ll be full for several hours.
