Nutrition

Seriously, your kids will love this brocoli smoothie!

Brocoli smoothie you say? .. Broccoli is not the first food that comes to mind when craving a delicious smoothie.

The key is to balance out this sometimes bitter tasting vegetable with sweet fruit.

Broccoli is an excellent source of Vitamin C – a cup of this veggie packs in as much as is in a small orange.
