What's cooking? Wednesday - Broccoli Salad Smoothie

Broccoli Salad Smoothie - Before
This smoothie was my husband's idea.  He loves broccoli salad and wondered what would happen if he combined all the ingredients for the salad in a blender and made a smoothie.  Well, the first time I tasted it, I was not impressed  :)  His smoothie was more like a lumpie than a smoothie.  He liked it though and over time, I've tweaked it so that it actually tastes good.  Blending it long enough to make it smooth does help!  If you're brave, give it a try  :)

Broccoli Salad Smoothie

2 apples, cored and quartered
2 c. broccoli florets
1 c. pineapple chunks (I use frozen)
1/4 c. sunflower seeds
1/4 c. dried cranberries
1 scoop protein powder (I use the whey based vanilla powder sold at Costco)

Combine all ingredients in blender.  Add about 1 1/2 c. water (more or less depending on how thick you want it).  Blend until smooth.  Drink...if you dare  :)
