Broccoli Rabe Tropical Power Smoothie

03_BR_smoothie_beauty_010_webimg

A smoothie to be reckoned with. No need for blanching or cooking the broccoli rabe before blending. Just toss those leaves right in. That bitter flavor mellows out perfectly when combined with pineapple juice. Even non-smoothie lovers may fall in love with this power packed drink.
