Apple Lemon Green Smoothie
- 1 head broccoli, separated into florets
- 2 large apples, peeled (if desired), cored and diced
- ¼ cup fresh orange juice
- ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon zest
- 2 tablespoons sugar (optional)
- 2 large bananas, peeled and cut up
- 1 cup banana-flavored yogurt, chilled
- ½ cup milk, chilled
- Add broccoli florets to a pot of boiling water with 1 teaspoon salt. Cook, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender-crisp. Do not overcook. Remove broccoli with a slotted spoon and plunge into an ice water bath to stop the cooking process.
- Place broccoli in a blender together with the apples, orange juice, lemon juice, zest and sugar. Pulse until reduced to a puree, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add banana slices, yogurt and milk. Process for another minute or two until well-blended and smooth.
- Pour equally into 2 to 3 glasses and serve right away.
- For more veggie ideas, used canned artichoke hearts, well-drained and chopped in place of broccoli. Other fruits such as pineapple, mangoes, peaches or pears may also be added to this mix, as well as berries in season.
- For lactose intolerant individuals, omit milk and increase yogurt to 1-½ cups or use other substitutes such as soy or almond milk.
