Why is this so popular?
Broccolatte’s are so healthy because the broccoli powder is made up of one whole broccoli alongside the powder (two teaspoons). This came about because of research showing that many Australians were not getting their recommended daily intake of vegetables. So why not combine it with something the whole world loves to drink? Australians consume a lot of coffee, so the two were quickly fused together.
Studies also show that many Australians consume a lot of coffee which is why they came up with the idea to fuse the two ideas! This then encourages more people to drink their coffee filled beverages whilst being healthy at the same time. Smart idea!
