View Full Version : LF 2 recipes... one with broccoli, and 1 with basil ( Smoothies )

I was at the produce store today and now have too much broccoli, and too much basil. Looking for smoothie recipes that you have actually tried that use these 2 items. So, I guess, LOL, what I am saying is I want something that actually tastes good as a smoothie.

You could look for pesto recipes. They typically use quite a bit of basil. Then cover your broccoli with the pesto.
Also the same idea with marinara. I've seen marinara recipes that use a bit of fresh basil. Then also spread it on the broccoli.
Not exactly smoothies. But I'm sure you could modify a recipe to make a basil soup/smoothie. Pesto soup sounds pretty good.

Instead of a smoothie, I would do a soup.
DebB posted this a few weeks ago and I bet you could use both ingredients in it:
I actually purchased organic chipotle pepper powder at WFM tonight to start making blended soups! Thanks DebB!!!
