What Is Spirulina + Spirulina Benefits

Spirulina is a blue-green alga that is highly nutritious! Due to its incredible nutrient profile, it is considered a powerful superfood. It has:

ingredients needed to make a spirulina smoothie: frozen mango, frozen pineapple, non-dairy milk, hemp seeds, raw zucchini, spirulina powder, sea moss gel

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Spirulina Powder: Add one teaspoon of green or blue spirulina powder per serving, plus more as desired.
  • Frozen Mango and Frozen Pineapple: These fruits give the smoothie a delicious tropical flavor.
  • Hemp Seeds: for extra omega3s, omega6s, and protein.
  • 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.
