I have never made a smoothie with broccoli and blueberries specifically, but I have thrown 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 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.

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.

    Earlier Rene commented that she tried raw broccoli and it was “yuck”. Do you always steam the broccoli for all the smoothies you make?

    Although my broccoli is usually frozen because it keeps longer, broccoli is both healthiest and best tasting when fresh and raw. I would never even think of steaming it before putting it in my smoothie. In my humble opinion, two solid ingredients is pretty light. I myself prefer to mix in whole cranberries as well as some banana and/or avocado if you want a smoother texture. Yogurt is also great and if you don’t have many other solid ingredients strawberry banana really helps balance the veggie taste.

    If anyone has serious antioxidant fruit/veggie smoothie recipes or ideas shoot me an email.

    Not bad! Although I tweaked some of the ingredients. I didnt have Cranberry Juice so I used V8 Strawberry -Kiwi and instead of plain yogurt I used Vanilla Greek yogurt (didnt like the vanilla flavor in this smoothie). Overall, not bad.

    Terry, is oatmeal good in a smoothie??
    If it were me I would have had just oatmeal and a smoothie..
    Anyway, not sure I’m gonna try the broccoli smoothie, it just doesn’t sound good. Gonna stick with kale and spinach, and maybe avocado sometimes, although it does seem a shame to put a nice avocado in a smoothie…

    Great blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally confused .. Any suggestions? Bless you!

  3. Awsome article and straight to the point. I am not sure if this is really the best place to ask but do you folks have any thoughts on where to hire
    some professional writers? Thanks :)
