Far Out Green Smoothies

It's not easy being green. Especially when you are a frozen beverage.

This refreshing smoothie might easily get overlooked due to its odd ingredients and strange color---but don't be too quick to pass up this delightful little concoction.

Try something new today! Stuff your lettuce in the blender and whip up a Lettuce Orangeade Smoothie!

1/2 cup orange juice
2 tsp. artificial sweetener
4 large lettuce leaves
2 sprigs fresh parsley
crushed ice

Puree in blender. Makes 2 servings.

It's surprisingly delicious and magically nutritious. And if you spill any of it on your lime green shag carpet, it will blend right in. Cheers!

That would be perfect if it had some vodka in it.
