Marquis calls this one a "beast of a pizza", but it's worth the effort once in a while to come up with something as special as this. Indulge!

You may be thinking, "broccoli and banana?!" Yes we know its an unlikely pair, however, this smoothie works out very nicely.

The result is a thick, creamy smoothie packed to the brim with green nutrition! Top with bee pollen for an immune system boost as well as extra protein and B vitamins.

Here are some recommendations: black botija olives, fresh baby spinach, sprouts, cherry tomatoes (preferably garden fresh), hemp seeds, pine nuts or crushed macadamia nuts and thinly sliced onion and mushroom.
