Beauty Food Breakfast

This is one of my super fast and super easy green breakfast smoothies. It will fill you up and keep you going, plus give you the added benefits of glowing skin. Oh yea, and it tastes great!

You need 3 ingredients:

  1. 1/4 head romaine lettuce
  2. 1 banana (a frozen banana will make it frosty)
  3. Coconut water, say…about a cup

Add the coconut water first, then lettuce and banana. Blend, blend, blend.

Potential add ons:

  • ground flax seeds
  • hemp seeds
  • chia seeds
  • vanilla
  • protein powder
  • cinnamon
  • maca powder

About that romaine lettuce…, don’t be fooled into thinking lettuce does not have much of a nutritional punch, especially romaine; it is a powerhouse. We’re talkin calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron as well as vitamins A, C and B.

Quick Smoothie Tips:

  • Keep peeled frozen bananas in the freezer to use in a flash
  • Pre-wash your lettuce and store in the fridge, ready to go

The original recipe is from Carol Alts book “the RAW 50”. It is one of my favorite resources for new raw, healthy,beauty food recipes.

Enjoy!
