Coconut Blackout Smoothie


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.



1 banana

1/2 cup frozen blackberries

1/2 cup of lettuce

1/2 cup light coconut milk

1/4-1/2 cup of water, as needed to get things moving

1 tablespoon chia seeds

3 ice cubes



Puree until smooth.


Yield: 1 serving
