With the official start of summer still a few weeks away, we want to make sure you’re prepping your freezer for the warm summer mornings. You can cool off with your morning cup – or should we say pop – of coffee. There are 15 milligrams of glucoraphanin from broccoli in each Brassica® Coffee K-Cup® that you can turn into a delicious and fun way to beat-the-heat this summer. Our Brassica Coffee Ice Pops (thank you, Amy Fischer, RD) are here to keep you cool while helping to support your body’s own detoxification system. In fact, a recent Bustle article lists broccoli as one of nine foods that can help flush out toxins from the body if you eat them in the morning.
If you can’t grab a handful of broccoli in the morning, be sure to grab one of these Brassica Coffee Ice Pops with TrueBroc® glucoraphanin from broccoli.
