-1 ripe frozen banana(120g)
-1/2 cup frozen mango(70g)
-1/2 cup frozen peaches(70g)
-6 large leaves of romaine lettuce chopped(90g)
-1/2 cup-2/3 cup water(depending on how much you need to blend, mine worked with a little over 1/2 cup)
-1 tsp flax seed
-Optional: few drops of vanilla extract, few drops of coconut extract, stevia/truvia or another sweetener such as honey to taste.)
Directions: Place all ingredients in your blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy! *Note* blend a little longer than usual so the romaine gets completely blended with no little pieces.
