I have never made a smoothie with broccoli and blueberries specifically, but I have throw in some broccoli florets when making a smoothie every now and then. Quite possibly one of my smoothies had blueberries but I don’t remember for sure. I have been making a habit of adding vegetables at the last minute to many of my fruit smoothies as they provide good nutrition, aren’t wasted and rarely to the detract from the flavor. You would be amazed at how much vegetables you can add to a fruit smoothie without your kids being any the wiser. ;-)
But I did have a request for a broccoli and blueberry smoothie so I went hunting and this combination has not been tried and published that often. In fact, this is the only one I could find on the livestrong website. Please provide any links or your own recipe in the comments below. I’d love to add more to the site. In the meantime, try this one or start tossing in few broccoli florets to any smoothie you are making.
- 1 cup of frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup of steamed broccoli
- 1 cup of 100 percent cranberry juice
- 1/2 cup of low-fat plain yogurt
Blend and combine to make 1 smoothie. Add strawberries or blackberries for an additional burst of nutrition.
