Blueberry Broccoli Smoothie: Cancer Preventing

Cancer Preventing Blueberry Broccoli Smoothie Recipe Card

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.

  • Cuisine: Drink



Blend the ingredients in the following order:

  1. Blend the dry ingredients and liquid first for a short time
  2. Blend the greens next for a short time (if using)
  3. Blend the fruit and the rest of the ingredients until smooth (or as smooth as your blender will allow. High speed blenders may need 2 minutes for a Green Thickie, less powerful blenders may need a lot more, sometimes 5-10 minutes)

More tips:

  • Blending this way allows the dry ingredients to be blended for longest, it means the greens will fit in your blender and your fruit gets less blending so it doesn’t become too hot.
  • Add more water if required to thin it out.
  • Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have.
  • If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge or freeze some of your ingredients before blending.
  • You can also replace half of the liquids with ice. Add the ice at the end. It is better to add frozen ingredients at the end to cool the smoothie down.


How much should I drink to replace a meal?

  • Only use a meal replacement if you’ve added the oats/quinoa.
  • This Green Thickie serves 2 so you should DRINK HALF OF THIS RECIPE. But if you have higher calorie requirements you may need to drink more.

  1. Absolutely delicious :)

  2. I’m not sure I understand why I would want to blend that all up into a 400 calorie drink, instead of enjoying the process of actually eating my food? I’m not asking to be snarky, I just really don’t understand. If I take that ingredient list, and cut it in half (bc its 2 servings) I see enough food for a couple of healthy snacks, and the broccoli i would add to a meal. What am I missing, why is this better than actually eating food?

  3. Thanks for this recipe, I just started with making smoothies, and I am going to give this one a try tomorrow. Thank you.

  4. Thanks for your reply, I ended up using ingredients I had available so it turned out quite differently to yours, I found the brocolli to be a little bitter so I added a little ginger which seemed to give it a better flavour, I’m very new to this so still trying to work out what flavours work well. Will check out some more of your recipes, thanks. Dave

  5. Just made this and it’s definitely filling. This is my first step in trying to eat healthier. Thank you for the recipe!

  6. Thank you for this recipe. I try to eat a lot of broccoli, as it is an affordable and very healthy veggy, but I found I was getting rather fed up with it’s taste when steaming/cooking/baking it. Drinking it raw is amazing, even my veggy hating boyfriend ‘kind of liked it'(which,coming from him, is a compliment) , and I absolutely <3 it.

    Keep up the good work!

  7. I am going to try this one tomorrow – but need to find something to replace the banana as I am allergic. What would you suggest?

  8. Do you have listed somewhere the estimated amount of calories in each of your smoothies/thickies ?

  9. I just made this and took the advice of another commenter and added ginger…It was SO SO DELICIOUS. Thank you for this great recipe! : )

  10. Can the smoothie be frozen? Will there be a loss of nutrients?

  11. angela aquino says

    can i cook/steam the brocolli first, i cant take raw its too green

    • Steamed broccoli is very healthy but it might affect the flavour of the smoothie, perhaps substitute the brocoli for something easier on the digestion like spinach.

  12. I don’t see the nutritional info anywhere. What is the calories per serve?

  13. This is a great website. I tried a modified broccoli blueberry smoothie and it keeps me full all day and I tried a few tricks to eliminate the broccoli taste and calories.

    -1 cup broccolli
    -3-5 strawberries depending on size
    -1/2 cup blueberries
    -1.5 cup of milk
    -For a kick (1/4 teaspoon cinammon and black pepper..or more if you dare :)
    -1 tablespoon vanilla coffeemate (liquid)

    Blendaway!!..I never taste the broccolli, instead it just thickens up the shake to make it dense and more filling without the need of oats.

    P.S. I always blend the fruits frozen
    Time: 2 minutes

  14. my husband has lung and bone cancer, is there any smoothies to help

  15. Taylor Miles says

    Great smoothie! Didn’t have the sunflower seeds or raisins and it turned out just fine. The oats were a great touch.
