Do you have a hard time getting your veggies in? This delicious Rise & Shine Smoothie is packed with 5 different fruits and veggies. The taste of broccoli being one of the most nutrient packed veggies is completely hidden in this breakfast smoothie with my secret ingredient.
To your high speed blender, add 1/2 cucumber, 1 carrot chopped, 1 head of broccoli florets, 5 strawberries, 2 cups of frozen pineapple and 2 cups of apple juice. Blend on high for 20 seconds and pour into 2 large glasses. The secret ingredient? Pineapple of course! When you want to cover the taste of bitter veggies like broccoli, kale or dandelion greens in a smoothie or juice, just add pineapple! It will completely overpower the other flavors, making bitter greens and veggies completely palatable even for the pickiest eaters! Plus, it is full of enzymes and vitamin C.
I like to have this breakfast Rise & Shine Smoothie in the morning. It is very dense and will give you energy for hours.
The apple juice makes this breakfast smoothie taste amazing but feel free to replace it with ice if you have candida overgrowth.
