Romaine Smoothie

I try to start each day with a green smoothie, usually with kale, banana, and fruit.  Once in a while I use spinach.  However, at the end of this summer, my romaine bolted.  Meaning that I didn’t keep up with picking it, and it grew extremely tall.  Unfortunately, the leaves had become tough and bitter.  I couldn’t bear to let all the romaine go to waste, and I figured it couldn’t be too far from the taste of kale, and tried it in a smoothie.  Sure enough, it works!
