    It just hit me the other day to start making blender drinks. I am going to experiment with broccoli and tomatoes. Maybe throw in some cilantro and WHALLLAAA... No more expensive vegetable juices.

    Do you realize that's a picture that Steward the Reaper used to use?

    I think that would be gross.

    You should try looking at how to make a green smoothie , the way I like to do it is to blend milk with a ripe banana and a handful of baby spinach. It's delicious.

    That does sound good. I'll try it that way. I just thought of broccoli because the stuff gives you so much energy. When I was fighting cancer years ago, broccoli made a huge difference when it came to having energy.

    Oh that sounds good. I'll add some egg whites, too.

    I haven't gone wrong with my new Blendtec blender yet - everything blends smoothly with a wonderful, creamy texture so whatever comes out of it tastes good (or at least not bad). Even pasturized liquid egg whites and whey protein powder with broccoli, kale, collard greens and spinach (my "go to" mix) as long as I throw in frozen blueberries and a banana plus maybe whatever else I have available like mango or celery. Given a sale on pomegranates I'm now even loading my smoothies with pomegranate seeds. Now that I'm thinking about it I might pour today's mix onto the griddle and make an omelete.

    Your idea for a broccoli drink isn't bad, but it wouldn't taste so good.
    Kale, however, would be and it's just as good a cancer fighter and energy-booster as broccoli. Make a drink from juicing 3 Kale leaves (with stems), 1 Green Apple, a small piece of fresh Ginger and half a ripe Banana... and add ice.
    Use steamed Broccoli in salads & stir-fries and make a paste from it (pureed with cottage cheese) to spread on sandwiches instead of butter.

    I've made mashed broccoli. If you boil broccoli long enough you can mash it and then add sour cream and cheese...kinda like mashed potatoes but with broccoli

    Broccoli is great in veggie blended/juiced drinks. Probably one of my favorite add ins, I would chop off the tops though because the little bits on the tops just don't blend, and make the drink grainy.
