I used to think I needed a fancy juicer and special ingredients to make a smoothie. Not so. I pulled out my old blender that I hadn't used since my margarita days a decade ago. Then, I poked around in the fridge to see what kind of fruit was on hand. I clipped some lettuce from the garden, added water and cinnamon and — voila — a terrific smoothie, easier than pie.

Here's what I used for the easy smoothie recipe below, but experiment with your favorite fruits and veggies for different flavor profiles. Use spinach or kale instead of lettuce. Oodles of options!
