"This was inspired by recipe#285456 (thanks Mandy!). An energizing brekky in which you'll never taste the broccoli (what broccoli??!!)."

Ready In:
1 large smoothie




  • Steam the broccoli till bright green and softened, in a small pot with about 1/4 cup water.
  • IF you have an immersion blender, you can then simply toss the other ingredients in the pot, blend in there, and ta-da, your smoothie's made! Or you can transfer the broccoli and the rest to a blender or food processor.
  • Be sure to blend very well, especially if trying to hide veggies from children- and in that case, probably a good idea to use a sweeter yogurt or add the honey. However, it's entirely optional.
  • Enjoy!
  • Note: For the soy yogurt, I use homemade tofu sour cream- just soft tofu blended with lemon juice to taste and a pinch of salt.

  1. I must admit, I was a bit hesitant about the broccoli, but it's true- you don't even know it's there. I steamed the broccoli in the microwave and then mixed everything in the blender, using Greek yogurt and the optional honey. Very delicious (and nutritious). Thanks for posting this. Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
  2. This is really good! My husband says this is definitely a keeper. Wonderful combination of flavors and you cannot detect the secret ingredient. The banana and blueberries provided just the right amount of sweetness so I did not use the optional sweeteners. Thank you for posting. Made for PRMR.
  3. Mmmmmm, very good smoothie. And you are quite right, "what broccoli?" I couldn't taste either the blueberries, OJ, or banana. It all added up to it's own unique taste! I used French vanilla yogurt and no added sweetener. Thnx for posting White Rose Child. Made for Comfort Cafe Summer 2009.
  4. I was ever-so-hesitant to include the broccoli here, but my curiousity got the better of me! Have no idea if it added anything more than 'nutrition' because the flavors from the fruits apparently hit any taste of broccoli! Interesting color to this GREAT TASTING SMOOTHIE!

A teenager who loves to cook- weird or what? But yes, it's one of my passions! To me cooking is like an art form- there's always something new and exciting to try, and there are constantly more ideas running around in my head than I know what to do with. Now, to update this page- a little task I haven't done in about two years!! Much remains the same as when I joined what seems like "forever ago": I'm a vegan with many passions: music, yoga, volunteer work, healthy/tasty food (the healthy vs. the tasty seem to run in cycles, haha) - and perhaps most of all, I love the written world. My dearest happy moments are when I am reading, writing, and feeling inspired. I'm in my first year studying at Mount Allison university for a B.A., major in English. However, since this is RecipeZaar, I must note that I'm equally obsessive about food!! Six years have passed since I was twelve and sort-of accidentally converted my family to veganism. Yes, even dad and little bro now greedily dig into their tofu shepherd pie and soy ice cream (well, clearly, one AFTER the other). I'm always on the lookout for foods that will please, and maybe even be healthy for, all of us! Now that I'm in uni and living with my aunt, uncle and cousin in New Brunswick, I still try to help with the cooking a bit. My sweetie cousin, Bilious Pigeon here on Zaar, is a terrific kitchen buddy. We share a penchant for fine coffee. Thankfully, my family here has turned mostly to the vegan side and that makes university life sooo much easier! My posted recipes, those I haven't invented, might come from Vegnews magazine, another website, one of our awesome vegan cookbooks, or friends- but it's virtually guaranteed that I've modified them at least in some way, and if from a book or show, I always acknowledge the original source. After all, I'd want someone to do the same for me. Since returning to the public education system after eight years of homeschooling, I don't have quite as much time in the kitchen as I used to. But I don't let that stifle my creativity! One of my favorite activities is in the summer when I get together with another cousin ~Harriet~, who's also here on Zaar, and we cook as much as we want. Good times! One more thing about me. I'm a Zaar game addict. And proud of it, and I'd advise anyone to join who would like more reviews on their own recipes, not to mention spending time with fun people and trying recipes they might not find otherwise. Please Zmail me with any questions or just to chat. Hope you enjoy, and are inspired by, my ideas! <img src=> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <a href="¤t=chefkoalas.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="tag"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=>
