Sweet Broccoli Juice

Broccoli Juice
Do you end up with a pile of broccoli stalks in your kitchen? I eat a lot of broccoli so I always manage to have a growing pile of broccoli stalks in my fridge. For years I made the mistake of composting them. Of course, that was until I realized how absolutely delicious they are. If you’re not eating your broccoli stalks, let me tell you right now that you are missing out.
Once you peel the outer skin of the broccoli stalk away, the inside is crisp and sweet and they make a wonderful snack by themselves. I also love using shredded broccoli stalks raw in salads and slaws or sauteing them in a quick stir-fry.
This week I’ve been experimenting with adding them to juices and I am loving this spicy and sweet combo with apple, mint, and ginger. If you are one of those people who dislike the taste of broccoli, let me just warn you now that this probably isn’t for you. However, if you are a broccoli fan and are looking for a new way to  use up the stalks, this is one tasty treat!

If you are new to juicing broccoli, I would probably recommend taking it slow and starting with 1 – 2 stalks and increasing the ratio of apples. Combined with the mint and ginger, this juice is sweet, but with a nice bit of spice from the ginger. It’s the perfect combo to get you in the mood for spring!

    It is almost impossible to find broccoli with the stalks anymore. One more way the grocery stores have founda new way to gouge consumers. You used to be able to get the whole head of broccoli for 99 cents. Now it is .99/lb or more and no stems to be had! This looks really good.

      That’s such a bummer! I’m sure stores see it as a convenience for folks because most people do just discard the stalks, but there are so many great ways to use ‘em! :)

    This is a wonderful recipe, Just a note to those making this: don’t drink more than you should through out the day, or you will have a problem with unwanted gas or Diahrhea,(I’m just being very honest and upfront with all of you,)

    Thanks for this – I’ll be trying it out for sure! I’m looking to do a detox and the thought of straight-up broccoli juice TERRIFIES me, so I’m so glad I’ve found out something that balances out the flavour with some sweetness and a bit of a kick.
