Yesterday I had to use up some broccoli sprouts, so I decided to make a quick brococoli-sprout smoothie. It turned out delicious. Before that I spoke to a friend who said that recent studies have shown that broccoli sprouts can aid in detoxing the body and are filled with nutrition. Check out this article here for more info.
I bought these ones at a farmers’ market from a kind gentleman who provides the world with all kinds of sprouts. His eyes shine with a healthy glow – that to me is proof enough that sprouts are indeed a wondrous thing.
Here’s how I made it:
1/2 cup broccoli sprouts
1/2 an avacado (large)
3/4 cup of hemp milk + 1/4 cup of water
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Blend in a vitamix or blender, pour into a glass and enjoy! If it’s not sweet enough for you or too “natural” tasting, consider adding a few soaked dates or some honey.
Pretty soon I’ll be buying a nifty sprout kit from a friend, and I’ll write about how you can an grow your very own broccoli sprouts at home!
