Broccoli Peanut Butter Smoothie

broc-straw

Broccoli is very good for you, and good for the kids, but not everyone likes the taste. It’s just loaded with vitamins C and K, has alittle of almost everything else, and is a great form of fiber. So here we’re going to have our broccoli but hide the taste :)

Ingredients:

1 slightly overripe banana
6 strawberries (my sister says blueberries work too but haven’t tried it myself)
3 raw cauliflower florets
3 raw broccoli florets
2/3 c vanilla yogurt (strawberry flavor works too but will up the calorie content)
1/2 T smooth light peanut butter
1. T. honey (optional, for sweetness)
skim milk as needed

Directions:

Toss the broccoli and cauliflower and banana into the blender with a tablespoon or so of milk and whirl on low a bit until it’s smushy.
Add the peanut butter, berries, (honey if using) and yogurt and blend until smooth. Use more milk if needed to make it thinner if you like.

This smoothie has around 300 calories and comes out tasting sweet.
