Ingredients You’ll Need To Make This Spirulina Smoothie

- Frozen Mango and Frozen Pineapple: These fruits give the smoothie a delicious tropical flavor.

- Raw Zucchini: Makes the smoothie creamy and is a great source of potassium, folate, and antioxidants. I like to peel the skin before using it to give my smoothie the best texture.

How To Make A Spirulina Smoothie
Making a spirulina smoothie is super easy! Simply grab a high-powered blender and combine the ingredients until smooth! Remember, the spirulina will turn any drink into a green hue, or blue if you are using blue spirulina!
How Much Spirulina Should I Add To My Smoothie?
One teaspoon per serving is enough to enjoy the benefits of spirulina, but you can always add more. Keep in mind that spirulina has a slight seaweed taste. It can be easily masked with fruits and vegetables, but the more you add, the harder it is to mask the flavor.
When To Drink Spirulina Smoothie?
Because spirulina is nutrient-packed and high in protein, it is a great pre or post-workout smoothie. It is also a wonderful smoothie to start your day! I like to begin my day with a spirulina smoothie and drink it on an empty stomach, allowing my body maximum absorption of the nutrients to fuel my day!
What Can You Mix With Spirulina?
People who do not mind the taste of spirulina can mix spirulina with water. Spirulina also pairs well with pineapple, mango, or orange juice or when combined with these fruits in a smoothie.
Sea Moss Spirulina Smoothie
Like spirulina, sea moss is also a superfood algae. A lot of people wonder, “how to take sea moss?”. One of the best and easiest to consume sea moss is in a smoothie. The flavor is undetectable and blends in perfectly with any ingredients you use. If you are new to sea moss and want to learn more about it, check out my post: Sea Moss Gel + Benefits.
I add Sea Moss to all of my smoothies. Try adding it to yours for even more of a nutrient boost!
