Lettuce has an even lighter flavor than spinach in a smoothie, so don’t be shy about adding a healthy handful. Most lettuce is pretty watery, so your lettuce smoothies will be a little thinner than the green smoothies you’re used to.

    • Use your favorite lettuce – green, iceberg or Romaine – all have similar lightly sweet undertones. Iceberg will blend in best due to its higher water content, but the others add a wee more of the good stuff to your glass.
