Aussie researchers give green light to new health fad -- broccoli latte

As you can imagine, it has only received "mixed reviews" and yet we are sure this will be flooding all the coffee shops in no time and eventually your Instagram feeds.

One Melbourne cafe has started experimenting with the powder by stirring it into coffees.

Broccoli producers can also celebrate the news. Four out of five adults in Australia don't eat enough fruits and vegetables to meet the national dietary guidelines, a survey conducted by Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation found previous year.

But unlike sneaking the odd carrot into your smoothie, two tablespoons of this broccoli powder is supposed to be the equivalent of five servings of vegetables.

Broccoli is nutrient-rich with plenty of fiber and vitamins A, B1, and B6.

The cafe used a powder developed by Australian scientists made from imperfect-looking broccoli that would have previously been wasted.

"Research shows the average Australian is still not eating the recommended daily intake of vegetables a day, and options such as broccoli powder will help address this", he said on Wednesday.

Trump says Russian Federation should be at G7 meeting, Moscow not so sure
There will be no formal bilateral meeting between Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May during the summit this year. He did not reply but Trump grinned broadly and said "he's happy" before appearing to stick out his tongue.

The 100% broccoli powder is made from whole broccoli, and is produced using a combination of selected pre-treatment and drying processes to retain the natural colour, flavour and nutrient composition of fresh broccoli.

Australia's most weird new coffee trend is here - and this time it's not hipsters to blame, but Australia's top scientists. Steamed milk is added, and more broccoli powder is sprinkled on top.

I like to eat eat eat broccoli and coffee, and now we all can drink drink drink broccoli in our coffee.

The next step, however, is to investigate bringing powdered broccoli to the consumer market, so you might soon have a chance to try it out yourself at home.

"Australians don't eat enough vegetables and farmers across Australia will have access to an alternative market whilst improving farm yields and sustainability", he says.

You don't need to be a peculiar type of coffee elitist to think that blue algae lattes - which are a real-life thing - are a little, well, strange.
