Can’t stand the taste of kale or can’t find it at the market? I have a secret ingredient that I use to make a delicious smooth green juice. You’ll love the recipe I’ve created for you today.
My secret ingredient is Red leaf lettuce. This is a loose leaf variety of lettuce, similar to green leaf lettuce. Nutritionally they are similar. Red leaf lettuce is abundant in vitamins A and K and also contains calcium, folate, and iron. I personally love using red leaf lettuce in my salads, juices, and smoothies because the color is so beautiful.

Note: Ginger gives juices a bit of a kick, but it helps to boost the immune system. Read more about ginger here.
