When I first bumped into a broccoli juice recipe, my first thought was that there is no way I could drink it. I have no problem with this veggie if it is boiled or fried, but drinking it?
Then, one of my friend, who is a juice maker guru, made me a glass of juice from broccoli, carrot, orange and peach. I was so surprised when I tasted it. I had drunk better juices in my life, but it was absolutely OK.
Since then I have tried several recipes, and I think making a drink from it is an excellent way to enjoy the benefits of this nutritious vegetable.
Drinking pure broccoli juice is not the tastiest. You can make your drinks milder by using sweeter fruits such as apples, carrot, apricot, pineapple, etc.
Several studies have proved that this vegetable is among the healthiest greens in the world.
