Broccoli in smoothie

Never thought of putting broccoli in your smoothie? I have great news for you! If you add enough sweeteners and combine broccoli with your favorite fruits (broccoli-banana or broccoli-pineapple combo for example), the smoothie will come our delicious.

Does broccoli tastes good in smoothies?

It does! You will definitely taste the raw broccoli in the smoothie, make sure you like that taste before making the smoothie. Or, as an option, add more sweeteners that are listed in the ingredient list, or more banana.

Smoothie will still have a light broccoli aftertaste, but first you need to think about how many benefits that smoothie brings to your body! How many vitamins!

Green broccoli smoothie benefits

  • Use this recipe as a part of your diet, weight lose journey or post workout snack. Also great for kids ( i added less broccoli and more banana in my kids smoothie and they loved it).
  • Broccoli is high in many nutrients like fiber, vitamin K, vitamin C, iron and potassium.
  • Broccoli is also a fantastic source of protein ( compare to other veggies). So Broccoli detox smoothie has it all!
  • Beside that, look at this gorgeous color!

Can you use frozen broccoli in a smoothie?

Yes you can. There is really no difference between frozen and fresh broccoli when it comes to adding to a smoothie. Make sure to blend well!

I love broccoli smoothies. You can play with ingredients to make sure it fits your taste. I like it the way it is, but you can always add more pineapple or more banana. Or even add an apple! Why not?
