Broccoli Sprout Smoothie that Actually Tastes Good
broccoli sprout smoothie that actually tastes good

Broccoli sprouts have a bit of a spicy taste – kind of like a mix between raw broccoli and a mild radish. I don’t necessarily enjoy the taste of broccoli sprouts, so I try to mask the flavour as much as possible, which is what this recipe does quite well.

You will need the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup broccoli sprouts
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • juice from half a lemon
  • 1 banana
  • half an apple, or one whole small apple
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple (and/or mango) (+ I also like to throw in a few frozen strawberries)
  • 1 cup water or milk

These simple ingredients make for a smoothie so tasty that you’ll forget you’re drinking greens at all!

The fruits (apple, pineapple/mango, banana, and strawberries) are all very sweet fruits, so they easily overpower the broccoli sprouts. But if you don’t mind a slightly greener, more broccoli-sprout-y taste, you can put in less fruit.

On the other hand, if the smoothie is still tasting too green, you can always add in more apple or any of the other fruits.

I find that even the spinach helps mellow out the broccoli sprouts, somehow!

For the broccoli sprouts, you can use them fresh or frozen. If using frozen sprouts, just be sure to blend them up before they have time to thaw, in order to maximize their benefits.
