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!
