I've just noticed that hardly anyone adds heads of broccoli to their green smoothies? Being a highly nutritious vegetable..im just wondering why?

I just don't like the taste in my drink. I have no problem eating it. But I think it's too strong for me.

*raises hand* I have! I don't mind it.
Actually. Last winter I broke my toe and refused to go to a doctor. It wasn't healing for a couple of weeks. Then I started adding LOTS of broccoli to my green smoothies. I figured the calcium couldn't hurt. And that's when it started healing. Maybe coincidence. Maybe not. :)

It's probably because Victoria Boutenko promotes the use of leafy greens in the smoothies. No reason not to include other veggies if one chooses though.

I was just thinking I need to eat more broccoli, I don't know if I would add it to my smoothie because it does have a strong taste.

I do my smoothies and green smoothies a little different then most people on this board. I separate the two. One group of smoothies is fruit and the other is vegetables. After I get up I like to start my day with a fruit smoothie. Today it was a couple of tangerines, a little water and some ice. I continue having fruit smoothies for awhile and then when I feel like it I have a vegie smoothie (I'm having one now). The one I am drinking right now has okra, cucumber, and lots dark green romaine lettuce in it. It is VERY GREEN. I like the taste of it and it allows me to practice the food combining principals that I have gotten so used to doing for all these years. After I have my fill of smoothies I will clean the vitamix and eat more solid fresh raw foods. This is typical of the way I eat most days.
