I make smoothie’s all the time for a quick breakfast for the Littles. Today I was very, very sneaky…
Can you guess what’s in the smoothie?
A full serving of broccoli. Yep, blended unnoticed right into a healthy glass of deliciousness. I passed off smaller cups to the unsuspecting troops, and savored this tall glass of goodness all for myself.
No doubt you have your own favorite smoothie concoctions. Next time you blend up your breakfast or snack, consider adding a cup of frozen, organic broccoli florets. Adding this green, cruciferous veggie to your smoothie is an easy way to get a full serving of one of the world’s healthiest foods. Broccoli is filled with vitamin C, folic acid and potassium. The ‘little trees’ are also fiber-rich. The more you cook broccoli the more nutrients it loses. By adding flash frozen, organic broccoli to a smoothie you are sure to benefit from these vital nutrients.
I always vary my blueberry-broccoli smoothies depending on what I have on hand. Get creative! Who knew broccoli for breakfast could be so good?
