Tired of eating salads? Try drinking one instead with the Salad in a Glass Smoothie recipe. It is easy to get your daily greens by drinking a tasty smoothie. We all know that spinach is a super green vegetable, which can be eaten in lieu of a multivitamin, but romaine lettuce is packed with nutrients as well and has a much milder flavor when used in smoothie recipes. It is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate, and contains almost every other vitamin and mineral known to man (and most likely some that have not yet been identified). Surprisingly, romaine even contains omega-3 fatty acids and protein.

Ingredients: 
2 carrots
1/2 onion
1 tomato
2 cups romaine lettuce
2 cups spinach
1 cup fat free plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp ranch seasoning
1 cup ice cubes
Instructions: 
  1. Add all ingredients to the blender and blend until smooth.
Tips: 
To significantly reduce preparation and blending time try using one of our recommended high end smoothie blenders.
