Here is my latest smoothie favorite. I substitute romaine lettuce for spinach if I don't have spinach in the house. Garnish with mint leaves or a strawberry to make it foo-foo. This is low cal yet, filling and is great for you. If you substitute this for one meal a day, you should also feel more energized and less sluggish. Oh, and my Vitamix pretty much rocks! :)
