I always slice up and freeze the broccoli stalks when I’m cleaning/rinsing broccoli fresh from the store. I then use them in stir-fry dishes and find I usually have a few zip-lock bags of these in my freezer at a time anyway! Thanks for the wonderful tip!

Absolutely! Here is an even simpler one that tastes just like a frosty:

Thank you! I agree, it’s a great way to use up the stalks, and they actually work better for this because the “trees” are harder to get fully blended. I do like using protein powders, but you don’t have to. For this particular smoothie, I made it lots of different ways before I found a combination that I liked, and I just happened to toss in protein in the final version. Leaving it out does not change the texture, and since I used an unflavored powder, it also won’t change the flavor. The only thing I would do is put in a little less milk — like 6-7 ounces instead of 8 — and that’s it. And finally, since broccoli is high in protein on its own, leaving out the powder only removes about 10g of protein from the result, still leaving about 9-10 grams…As far as other recipes, the same would apply – just start with a little less liquid to make sure the end product is not too runny.

And thanks for your note about the tags. I’ll see if I can fix it!

How clever! Because most times, the little “trees” are what people like to eat, so it’s a good way to use up stalks!

I have a question. I know that you like using protein powders. Can all your recipes omit this? Or will it affect the flavor and/or texture?

And one day, I’m going to surprise you and actually make a smoothie! Oh and I LOOOOVE that broccoli song!
