                   So today I was starving and I decided to do some smoothie experimenting!! You may not know, but I love making smoothies. They are fast, nutritional, and packed with the vitamins and antioxidants that your body needs everyday!! :]] 

I went into the kitchen determined to spice up my smoothie! I went to the refrigerator and looked through the drawers and HA! There it was!! Broccoli! So here are the ingredients: p.s. I use all frozen fruit!! :]]

  • 1/4 cup of vanilla yogurt (I use Nancy’s Organic Vanilla)
  • 1/2 cup (or 7) mango cubes 
  • 1/4 cup of blueberries
  •  1/4 cup+ 1/8 cup Raspberries
  • 1/2 orange (yes- the whole orange…minus the peel!)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 ripe banana
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli!!!
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground flax seed

Julie’s Rating: 4/5 stars              

*The reason why it was 4/5 stars was because the broccoli kind of threw me off from my usual berry smoothie. I couldn’t really notice the broccoli THAT much. I think just the physcological thought that it’s there. It was quite good though…I must say!! Now I am energized and ready to go on with my day!! Maybe I will do the nutritional info a little later!

I was going to take a picture and post it but I drank it before I had the idea of starting this blog!! Hehe!!

I hope you enjoy this and have a SUNNY day!! :]]  ..oh..and please comment me saying you have read this!! Even if you didn’t try it I want to see if anyone has read this!! :]]
