Reese Witherspoon took to Instagram to share her favorite green smoothie, which she drinks every morning.

“This is the smoothie that I drink every single day, and I have probably for eight years, nine years, I don’t even know,” she said, noting that she doesn’t get hungry again until about 1pm. “It has a lot of vegetables in it.”

She explained that the recipe is inspired by Kimberly Snyder’s Glowing Green Smoothie, with a few key differences.

 Reese took two heads of romaine lettuce, fresh spinach, celery, one pear, one apple, a banana, one lemon, as well as half a cup of coconut water and popped them into a blender. 

“You can put in anything green! If you have lettuce and you didn’t make that salad that you wanted to make, you can put it in there,” the 44-year-old said, noting that she also adds a scoop of protein powder or almond butter if she has either on hand. “I know it looks like it tastes gross. But it tastes so good! It’s so good, I love it so much.”

Reese credited the recipe to her Little Fires Everywhere co-star, Kerry Washington.

“I sat next to (Kerry) at an awards show and I didn’t really know her, but I said, ‘Your skin is so beautiful. What do you do?’ and she said, ‘I think it’s from this drink that I drink. It’s really changed my skin and it makes my hair and nails really strong.’ So thank you, Kerry, for sharing the recipe,” she smiled.
