I love malts and smoothies and anything remotely like them, and so do my kids. We had always eaten fruit smoothies and tried to make them as nutritious as possible, but we had never tried adding veggies to them until recently.
The mere thought of it is an assault on your taste buds, I know. But the truth is, you can hardly -if at all, detect the difference between a smoothie or a vegetable-spiked version. The amount able to be hidden inside a smoothie is approximately what your body needs each day depending upon how much you can sneak in.
Adding a veggie-laced smoothie to your weekly menu is a very easy way to get these vegetables into you and your family's diet even if you or any one of them absolutely hate broccoli recipes of any kind.
Wash that blender off that's been idle for so long. Your blender is your "portal" to good eating habits and makes eating hard-to-eat-foods so simple. Make a permanent place for it on your counter because now you're going to be experimenting with other ways to sneak the good things into your diet.
Broccoli Recipe for Veggie Smoothies.
This broccoli recipe is so simple. But to be honest, I never measure. Feel free to alter the ingredients to taste and experiment with variations on thickness. This is supposed to be fast right?
Choose your favorite frozen fruits in the freezer section of your grocery store.
Add about a half cup of each of the following frozen fruits, strawberries, peaches, blue berries, mixed berries, papaya, cherries, blackberries, etc. in your blender. The fruit should come up half-way on your blender. Include a half or whole banana if desired.
Add the following to the blender:
1 heaping spoon full of peanut butter (your taste bud confuser)
3/4 cup of dried oatmeal for thickness and they're very good for you.
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 cup tofu for great thickness and more protein (tasteless)
1 or 2 tablespoons Ovaltine / Nestle Quick to sweetness (both have vitamins)
1 handful (about a half cup to 1 cup of broccoli florets -more can be added without detection. But add too many and you risk a taste bud security risk and you may lose your cover!
Pour in skim milk or reduced fat soy milk until contents are just about submerged. You may like a thicker smoothie so the the liquids can be adjusted to one's taste.
Blend until nice and smooth.
If it's hot out, add some ice!
Serve right away.
Don't spill the broccoli to the kids now!
Try it with fresh or frozen spinach leaves, cauliflower, kale, and other vegetables. Adding beats gives your smoothie a great red color! Enjoy!
