Enter the RoMango Banana Smoothie

Enter the RoMango Banana Smoothie :: Pen Pals and Cookin' Gals
This was my lunch and these were my lunch dates today. The barbies were sort of superficial, but the animals were magnetic! There was a car there too, but he didn’t have any drive.

Yuk, yuk…

Impressed by some of my blogging friends, I wanted to take an au naturale photo of my green smoothie for you today; the smoothie that I had to sneak sips of because my kids downed most of it. Kids being the reason why there are toys all over my house.

I was inspired to make this by a friend who was asking me, today, if I had any good green smoothie recipes. I don’t usually make them, but after this one got sucked down (mostly) by the kids, I may have to start making them more often. Anything to get my almost 4-year old and 15-month old to voluntarily consume lettuce.

Yep, there’s lettuce in here!

RoMango Banana Smoothie

Ingredients:

1 ripe mango, pit and skin removed, cut into chunks

1/2 a ripe banana (preferably frozen)

3 ribs Romaine lettuce, washed

almond milk (or juice, or another nut milk) to cover

Directions:

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until creamy. Pour into a tall glass or mason jar (for extra coolness), add a straw, and sip. Pretend you’re trying to keep it away from the tiny people in your life. Watch them suck down the green yummyness. Wish you had made more. 🙂

If made exactly the way I did, this has only 229 calories. Enjoy!
