We have got a very interesting smoothie recipe that involves broccoli. That’s right. Have you ever thought of adding broccoli to your smoothies?
Adding veggies to your smoothies is becoming more and more popular, as people are trying to cut down on sugar, even fruit sugar!
Vegetables aren’t just for soups or salads, they have just as many health benefits as fruit does.
This broccoli smoothie is also suitable for vegans and people who are dairy-free, so it can be enjoyed on almost every diet.
Broccoli In a Smoothie Raw Or Cooked?
You are probably wondering whether you can throw raw broccoli into your blender for smoothies, or if should you cook them first.
The answer is – it doesn’t matter. Both work just fine. Ideally though, if you do decide to use raw broccoli, use frozen broccoli rather than fresh.
