One of the most overlooked leafy greens has found its home in our Mighty Mango Smoothie. This recipe combines a whole head of romaine with 3 of our favorite fruits – mango, lemon, and of course Prune Juice. Even though it’s loaded with vitamins and nutrients, this smoothie tastes anything but green.
