After reading several articles on this topic I decided to try it, so I went to the local grocery store and bought some sprouts, started up my blender to make my smoothie as usual but this time I added raw sprouts into the mix. To tell you the truth the first few days do take some getting used to. The raw sprouts have a distinct flavor and smell which can take some adjusting to. Right now am on my second week and I can drink it without a problem. I have come to love sandwiches from mellow mushroom as they add sprouts to their veggie sandwiches.
