Blueberry Broccoli Smoothie: Green Thickie
This blueberry and broccoli smoothie is packed full of cancer preventing superfoods. You may find the taste of raw broccoli slightly more noticeable in this smoothie but it still has a lovely sweet aftertaste. This is great for people who need a major energy boost and for getting greens into people who just won’t eat them in any other form. This broccoli smoothie contains raw broccoli which is hard to tolerate when eaten in it’s natural state. It is much better for you to eat your greens raw as the nutrients and antioxidants won’t be destroyed by the heat.
Benefits of this Broccoli Smoothie
Broccoli is very high in calcium and easily absorbed which is good for people on a dairy free diet to help prevent osteoporosis. Broccoli has also been linked to providing health benefits for diabetes, malignant tumours, stomach, colon and lung cancers, heart disease, arthritis and it is said to be anti-aging. What is even better is broccoli can be easily found in most shops.
This smoothie is extra filling and will keep you going for a long time, but if you prefer to take in less calories then cut the amount into 4 servings instead of 2 and cut the number of calories in half.
