MELBOURNE, Australia (KTVU) - Looking for another way to increase your vegetable intake? How about some broccoli in your morning cup of joe?
An Australian company has come up with a new way to add some of that fiber-rich green into your coffee.
Australia's national science agency is behind the research that helped lead to the new coffee flavor.
An Australian horticultural group collaborated with the agency to create a powdered broccoli product that is being added to coffee drinks.
One Melbourne café is using the powder to whip up broccoli lattes or "broccolattes."
Researchers say the powered additive is high in protein, fiber and other "health-promoting" properties.
The old adage "there's no accounting for taste" may aptly apply to this emerging trend.
So far, the offbeat green and brown broccoli-infused coffee has been getting mixed reviews.
