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.

Ever heard of a green smoothie with cinnamon? No, neither have I! In order to keep up with the festive theme of the last few weeks, I’ve tried to come up with a “holiday green smoothie”. It turned out to be a refreshing mix of apples, banana, cinnamon and romaine lettuce. You hardly notice the romaine lettuce, the smoothie tastes more like applesauce, but an applesauce you can drink! It’s smooth and creamy with a hint of cinnamon, the perfect flavor during the holidays.
I just came back from vacation and haven’t had a green smoothie in a week. The only alternative was store bought smoothies which just don’t compare to freshly made ones. So I came up with a basic smoothie recipe which relies on juicy whole oranges, a white peach (including skin) and fresh romaine lettuce leaves.
