I see you rolling your eyes and I know what you’re thinking, “I can’t believe she put broccoli in a smoothie.” I’m here to put those skeptical thoughts to rest, broccoli in a smoothie works.

Good news: you can’t taste the broccoli.

Bad news: your children will like this smoothie and as a result they will want to drink all of it, leaving you with very little for yourself. So plan accordingly 🙂

There are a few things you should know before chucking a full handful of broccoli into your blender though, and we’re going to cover that right here.

Ingredients in a Broccoli smoothie 

But first, we need some additional fruits and veggies to pair with the broccoli. Broccoli isn’t my favorite vegetable so I’m looking to fully mask the broccoli flavor. Quite frankly, I don’t want to taste ANY broccoli in my green smoothie. You need the following ingredients to make this smoothie:

  • Broccoli – I use raw broccoli. You can use left over broccoli, steamed broccoli or even frozen.
  • Mango – I use frozen mango chunks but fresh ripe mangos will work here too.
  • Frozen banana
  • Strawberries – fresh or frozen.
  • Fresh spinach – I love spinach in my smoothies! The goal is to pack in a lot of healthy greens.
  • Pineapple juice – this plays a role in masking some of that broccoli flavor; plus pineapple juice is just really really good.

How to make a Broccoli Smoothie

Combine all of the ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth.

Yup. That’s it.

Pro tip: You can add more broccoli, spinach, or liquid to your liking. Taste as you go is key. I found that 3/4 cup of broccoli still tasted good; the broccoli flavor was still masked, however the texture of the broccoli was more pronounced as I increased the amount of broccoli in the smoothie.

Alternatives to Broccoli

So you really dislike broccoli, that’s fine! Omit the broccoli and add spinach in its place.

Feel free to substitute and adjust the fruits used as well. I’ve added a scoop of protein powder to this broccoli smoothie and it tasted great.

Give this broccoli smoothie a try and have fun experimenting with it! You’ll be shocked at how tasty, healthy, and satisfying it is!
