Broccoli Leaf Smoothies

Green smoothies are a staple around our home during the summer.  Although, lately with the bounteous berries the Pacific Northwest offers, our smoothies are more of a purple color.  My boys love them!  This year I've been adding broccoli and cauliflower greens along with kale and spinach for added goodness.

Here's a versatile recipe that offers a lot of room for your own adaptations.  It's raw, vegan (we use honey), and so very healthy!

1/2 C raw almonds
1/2 C raw oats
2 T raw coconut
2 T flax meal
2 T raw sunflower seeds
-----Pulse until smooth, then add,
1 handful greens
1 handful frozen berries
Water or fresh orange juice to your preferred consistency
Raw honey to your liking
-----Blend all until smooth.  Enjoy!


  1. This is a mouthwatering recipe for the Green drink. The best thing is that its color is not green and has more chocolate flavor. I’ll definitely try this at home. I am sure my kids will never recognize that I have put spinach in it.

  2. Smoothies season is on and everyone these days wants to have smoothies and having broccoli leaf in it makes it more healtheir. Thank you for sharing the recipe with us
