Green Smoothie

This post is really for my Mom. She doesn't believe me that a green smoothie can taste good. Well, they do! Greta begs me for them. Here's the recipe I use, but I'm sure it can be modified in many ways. I love these. I try to make one every day (if I have time). I feel so much better on the days that I get to have one. I hope you'll give it a try!
Green smoothie
3-4 large Romaine leaves (or about 2 c. spinach leaves works nice as well)
1/2 c. water
1 1/2 c. frozen strawberries
2 bananas
a little honey if needed
Combine romaine and water in blender and blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and blend. You can add ice if you like and if the bananas are not perfectly ripe, you can add a little honey. Makes enough for 2 adults.
