This vibrant green smoothie is a family favourite. It makes a great veggie-packed breakfast or afternoon snack. I first served it to my son as a hydrating pre-dinner drink after a hardcore tennis lesson. He thought it was the perfect pick-me-up!

The base recipe is light and refreshing. Instead of going with the typical spinach or kale, here I have used romaine lettuce along with celery, cucumber, pineapple, and apple. Romaine is extremely low in calories (8 calories per cup), but rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.
