Broccolada Green Smoothie

Print

I’ve been a little nervous to try broccoli in smoothies, but have read in multiple places that the broccoli flavor disappears if you do it right.  Recently, my nutritionist suggested that I eat more broccoli. After that visit, I finally mustered up the courage to give it a go!  The results were surprisingly tasty, plus it made me feel so good!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Such an easy way to enjoy broccoli and to mix up the greens in your smoothie beyond kale and spinach! If using raw broccoli is scary you can lightly steam it, which will allow for easy absorption of it’s nutrients as well. I also love the added boost of the chia seeds in this smoothie to allow for a burst of Omega-3 fatty acids.
