Broccoli may seem like an odd addition to a smoothie but the combination of apple, grapes, and kiwi add some serious sweetness to this smoothie and blended in a Vitamix ensures a smooth mix. If you knew the health benefits of broccoli you would probably be adding it to everything! Not only is the vegetable loaded with essential nutrients, it also has therapeutic properties.  In fact, just a 100 gram serving of broccoli will provide you with more than 150% of your recommended daily intake of vitamin C.  This makes a super big batch enough for me and JP for two days so feel free to cut it in half or even in a quarter for a single serving.  Enjoy!
